HK owners let me know what you think
Had one in 40. Sold it. Didn't like the trigger at all. Check out the PPQ , much better trigger.

Let me state this again, I like this pistol because there is no manual safety but it does have a hammer and the decocker. I think that combo is perfect. Coming from years of a revolver mentality, I would just never trust a semiauto pistol without an exposed hammer. I want to know when I have a round in the chamber that the firing pin is safe and I have the option of a double action for quick pull and shoot or I can pull the hammer back and have a crisp single action. I am surprised more pistols aren't made like this.

There is no reason for a pistol to have a manual safety if the pistol has an exposed hammer. It just clutters up the gun and makes the shooter have to deal with more options that don't need to be there.

I checked out the PPQ and it's really a nice pistol but just my luck it's not on the list for purchase in Cali .. BUT the P99 which is also a impressive looking pistol and looks almost the same IS on the list

Insane! I like that PPQ, just farther down my buy list than some other stuff.

I mean lets do the math real quick....900 bucks compared to 500 bucks? I could get possibly get 2 glocks versus one HK. Nothing against the HK at all I honestly would want one(read other post) if they wasn't so pricey. Anyway, for that kind of money, I would hope that its built better than the glock. Nearly a grand...no plastic please

That's why I bought a Sig P229..40 ..I'm still looking for a 9mm and no I'm not trying to spend another grand,a Springfield XDM 3.8 would be nice but I live in Cali ...and I'd get a Walther p99 but they are just too hard to find..still looking

Now the XDM 3.8 is what I also want!
