Heckler & Koch Pistol Evals

DC Reed/Director

Testing Heckler and Koch’s this week and some next week.
P30’s, HK45, HK45C, P2000, and even a couple of USPs.

I have shot HK’s for many years and always had a love/dislike/fascination/regret cycle of reactions to them. That said I absolutely love the MP5 and carried one for years as an SRT and PST HRP dude.

I’ve somehow almost always had at least one since the P7M8 was the exotic ‘must have’ gun. Come to think of it, the old Staple gun is still a cool piece.

The SOCOM USP 45 was reliable but not all that, in my opinion considering the price which was extreme even for an HK. Heck, I don’t know about extreme conditions but my M&P 45 would outshoot it I believe.

Thinking back, I owed one of the very few P9S samples I’ve ever seen in 45ACP that had more than one magazine that worked! Ultimately that ungainly thing was traded, but now I wish I had it in the back of the safe.

(I also wish I had my brand new Bren Ten Special Forces 10mm that actually had a working mag and a coupon for another! Ok- back to HK’s)

I like the current crop of HK45’s with the P30 style “Batman” grip and have the HK45C in my stable. I prefer the HK45C but like the grip of the USP 45 Compact. I’ve had both in the past and traded one for the other at times. I might again.

(You got a good clean USP 45 Compact? Wanna trade?)

So- we’ll see the details on how these current models shoot and handle.
Anyone have an HK opinion (objective and on topic please) or real life HK experiences you want to share?

P.S. It’s pronounced “Coke” not “Cock” or “Cotch”

10 Rounds Is Safer Than 11?

DC Reed/Director

10 is safer than 11

Logical persons know behavior cannot be legislated. We have laws against speeding, we all break them and sometimes these violations result in death. But, there has been no law requiring speed governors on automobiles. Still, some politicians think 10 bullets are safer than 11. or worse – that such asnine feel-good legislation will do anything to curb horrific violence. Of course you know, bad guys not guns are the problem.

You should also know that those who wish to limit your protections under the 2nd Amendment are doing so because they fear you. This is why blacks – slaves – were prohibited from owning weapons prior to 1866. Fear.

The Civil Rights Acts of 1866 changed the laws prohibiting former slaves from owning firearms. Two years later with the adoption of the 14th Amendment, many Southern States imposed high taxes or banned inexpensive guns in order to price destitute individuals – read former slaves – out of the gun market. The 2nd Amendment has been under attack ever since and is becoming more a privilege than a right every day. We have accepted new laws and said, “Well, it could have been worse.”

Those prohibited firearms by an individual or government are, in every sense of the word, enslaved to that individual or government.

What, At This Point, Does It Matter?

DC Reed/Director

“What at this point does it matter?”

Really, Madam Secretary, really?

I am reminded of the Lion King scene.
The Lion Prince having abandoned his role of responsibility says, “I don’t worry about the past.”
Then the wise Shaman monkey smacks the Lion Prince on the head with a stick.
When the Lion says, “Hey! Ow! That hurts!”
The Shaman monkey says, “Don’t worry about it, it’s in the past!”
The Lion says, “But it still hurts.”
“Hmmmmm,” says the wise Shaman monkey.
