Before I go ahead with it tho, is there any reasons anyone would not recommend this purchase? I thot the gun handled really good, but again, I don't know that much about guns.
If money is not a major factor, I would suggest trying a Sig P226/229 or Browning Hi-Power. I also think the CZ 75b offers similar shooting quality to those two for about 30% less money. I'd state this much about the three aformentioned guns: if they fit your hand well, they will maximize your abilities as a shooter
. That's why I choose them. Strong performance at the range translates to heightened confidence and composure in the self-defense arena.
If you try some of these guns and still like the H&K, then by all means buy it. HK makes a darn good gun and the price is its only drawback. Perhaps only due to my own bias, I can't wrap my mind around spending much more than $600 on a polymer handgun. I chose the XDm BTW, but that's only a matter of preference. Glock, S&W, FN, Ruger, CZ, H&K, and several others offer some really solid polymer guns.
