What is the deal with the pricing on all things HK? Expensive because it's German engineering?

Expensive because its worth it when youre life is on the line. In the 8 years and about 10k rounds I put through my USP, it never misfired/stovepiped/failed one time. Ever.

Buying a quality self defense pistol is a no brainier, but it's only half of it. Quality, factory produced Self defense ammo(I would argue) is also a must. For plinking and recreational shooting, I buy the ultra cheap TulAmmo, but I would not run it in anything I was expecting to use in any "social work", as the bi-metal projectiles have a nasty tendency to over-penetrate and I have hod some issues with dud primers .

Thats what I had before the P30. One major improvement IMO is the move to steel mags. I never did like the USP composite ones. Too bulky.

The adjustable panels/backstrap are awesome as well. Getting them right really makes a huge difference.

Going to have Bruce Gray install the Straight 8 night sights I bought when I send it off to get worked over.

I bet those adjustable pannels are great. I have the houge handall rubber sleeve on mine and it fits my big hands. Next on the list is a glock in 9 just because I bought a bunch of 33 round mags for CHEAP at knob creek. Plus, being a Nato round, it will be good to have for when ammo gets even harder to find

Ya, I had the Hogue slip on's for my USP. "One size fits all" on those though. And I had very mixed emotions about their taccky-ness. I like the shock absorbtion properties and good grip. But I dont like the way the rubber gets hung up on fabric.

Eh, I base all my firearms purchases on who touts them the most in rap lyrics. Never heard anyone talk about H&K'in anyone.
Had a wheel gun for years as carry piece. Switched to semi a few years back, and tried out quite a few models, coudln't hit a damn thing with teh P30, and the slide rattled so much on the sig I had I thought it was going to come apart. I was surprised at how more accurate I was with a glock. Actually, liked the way the XD felt in my hand the most, but I went with the glock.

Really like how the xd/xdm feel in my hands. Feels like it was meant for me. Plus, don't think they are in rap songs, win. I'll nab an xdm 45 subcompact if my local store gets them in this week or next.

Hate people that ask what's your lowest price, try and go to by a car and ask them what the lowest price is. It's called haggling try it sometime. I also hate the people that want you to pm them or pm me either way. What are you to lazy to pm the persons whose thread you came to. Come on people lets not be so lazy and get off our high horse.

They don't want it that bad if they don't go after it. Partially why pbnation was made soley for ignorant people to get together and feel accepted.

They are nice, I've shot one and it was smooth. I personally like half blocks but I have nothing bad to say about CCM.

great pumps, if your looking for a full body cocker pump its the pest thing out there

if your into half blocks, the 6.5 is smoother and lighter than the T2, but the T2 is modular

and then there is the new empire sniper, though it might not be as nice as a 6.5 or a T2, it makes up for the shortcomings by being a couple hundred dollars cheaper than CCM's offerings
