    Hope those reloads arent lead nose. Glock forbids the use of those in their guns.

    No DD, they are either Win. or Rem. 124gr FMJ. I was aware of their position on lead and they, along with most of the manufactures, don't recommend reloads of any kind and I understand where that is coming from. I figure a good, careful, reloader can make as good a round as the factory. I don't reload lead in anything but the revolvers any more. Even the 1911 get jacketed or plated rounds. But thanks for the warning to the old geezer, he appreciates it.

    For a polymer pistol, I think H&K is ten times better.

    HK are fine pistols forsure. I have seen them KB in 40 and 45 though, well atleast after they Kb'd.

    Forget about good CS though, I owned one at one time and getting parts or any kind of service is as bad as Kimber. If you tell them you have a problem, there is not freakin way one of their products are faulty and they will flat out tell you that.

    I aint a huge fan of S&W autoloader pistols, but S&W has the best CS I have ever seen, I would own 2 M&Ps for the same price of one HK anyday! Glock also has spectacular CS. A huge consideration I look at when I get a pistol.


    One of my buddies has half a dozen HKs and I like them all, and yes I do believe they are 'better' than Glocks, but the extra price aint worth it when Glocks are just barely less of a pistol for soooo much less money..

    Idk though. I've never seen a Glock shoot as accurately out of the box as an HK out of the box.

    Neither have I, the margin of difference is not that much though. I can nail a 16" gong at 200 yards with my G37 pretty regularly. Thats not bad at all.

    That same G37 just happens to be the most accurate box stock service grade pistol I have ever owned. I will admit it is a freak of freaks as Glocks go though.

    I like HK pistols and I KNOW they are better. I cann't justify the cost and poor CS that goes along with that price. If I had a chance to buy one for $450.00 one would be in my nightstand right now. that dont happen, even at used prices..

    The local city cops started the switch to H&K a few years ago and after much less than a year called the whole thing off. They were having trouble - don't know the specific nature - but they could NOT get parts.
