One of my favorite pistols of all time that I haven’t bought yet. It does not have a standard safety like other semi-auto pistols. By squeezing the grip you cock the firing pin and pulling the trigger while holding the grip operates the pistol. The moment you let go of the grip lever, the P7 is de-cocked and safe. I really wished H&K had gone through the planned .45 ACP version but it was cost prohibitive.
