Is the 70-200 f/2.8 VR lens too heavy for handheld shooting?

I'm considering of buying a 70-200 f/2.8 VR lens for some outdoors portraits in available (low) light conditions, and I won't be using any monopod/tripod, so I'll rely in the VR feature to do most of the shooting (low shutter speeds)...

And that leads me to the question: In your experience, is the 70-200 f/2.8 VR lens too heavy for handheld shooting?

BTW, I have a D300...

Thanks for reading,
Reinaldo.
