Default HK Pistols

I've really been thinking about trying out a full size HK in .45 and have absolutely no idea where to start with them. I've heard a whole lot about the USP over the years but there's obviously a whole lot of other, newer models as well.

What would you guys recommend? Try out the USP or is there a different model I should be looking at?

I have USP'S In 40 and 45. toughest handgun on the planet. They have a few unique features. Like being able to load and unload with the safety engaged. Those that can't afford them buy glocks,,,, lol.

My buddy has an hk45c that I've shot a lot and I really like it, as in it will be my next pistol like it. His brother shoots a modded usp in comps but I don't know enough about them to tell you what mods he has. He has a crazy round count through both of his and he says it's without a failure.

HK makes a nice poly gun. I carry a HK p30 v3 and dumped my gen4 glock 19, as I prefer a hammer to a striker fire gun. Another gun worth looking at is a FN FNX 45 tactical. I have the older FDE FN FNP tactical, and it is my favorite 45 pistol by far. I had a HK45c and hated it. It was a great gun, built very well.... just not my cup o tea. You can't go wrong with HK!

What did you hate about the 45c? Just didn't fit you or something feature wise? In reading up about the design and the changes they made to it to better fit the combat environments that it was made for made me really want one, then my buddy got one and I like shooting it. But then again it's the only hk pistol I've shot.

More just personal gripes with the pistol. High bore axis makes it harder to shoot accurately. I felt it doesn't conceal or manage recoil as well as my FN.

Cool. I was just curious. I wouldn't plan on carrying it concealed, although my friend does.

I have a HK MR762 and had a HK45c, both weapons are built top notch and function 100% I also have a FN Scar 17s and a FNP tactical(never had a malfunction with either platform). Of the 2 brands, I find FN is leaps and bounds ahead of HK in building weapons that minimize recoil. That said, if I were looking for a weapon to shoot in the desert, under water, in zero gravity, or on the moon... I would choose HK.

I like the P 30, but hate the USP's. The USP's just don't fit or feel well.

It would appear the current front runners are the HK45 Tactical and the USP 45 Tactical. I'm really leaning towards the USP 45 but the final decision will have to be made when I can get them both in my hands. The match trigger that comes standard sounds like a winner but the more ergonomic design of the HK45 is pretty appealing too.

Just won't know until I can find a dealer that has them in stock somewhere near me.

Should say FNH FNX.


Even if I could afford an HK, I would probably still buy the FNX instead, and spend the rest on ammo.

I've ordered in HK's for customers and handled them. While they are nice pistols they just don't interest me. We have a couple FN's in stock and I like the feel of them.

I just don't like the FN pistols. Don't feel right in my hands.

Aside from the HKs, FNs, Glocks and 1911s... Any other high end, built like a tank full size pistols in .45 I should take a look at?

Is always easy to find who has the high points at a gun show. Just look for the crowd with white ear buds and Roca Wear jackets.

Don't forget the "OBEY" ball caps.

I will never understand how a black person could wear something with that slogan and then bitch about their ancestors being slaves.

God damnit.

A guy just made the case for the HK45 Tactical over the USP 45 Tactical. Seems like the HK45 is leaps and bounds ahead for features over the USP.

Anyone know what the USP 45 Tactical does better than the HK45 Tactical?
