So about two months ago I woke up and went to the gun store with every intent on dropping $500 on a 1911 and putting on lay a way. While I was there looking at 1911's I came across this big hunk of gun called the HK.45. I started to play with it and fell in love. So instead of dropping $500 on a 1911 on lay a way, I dropped about 1k and walked out with this, and have not looked back or regretted it. The only issue I have, and its not even with the gun, is that I ordered a duty holster for it a month and a half ago, and I still haven't gotten it. The company acts like I want a level 3 retention light bearing holster for some homemade gun. The bun I bought was set up with the right handed safety and de-cocker, and this posed a problem for me since I'm left handed. It also only came with two magazines. I researched for holsters, magazines, and ambidextrous safety/de-cocker. Everyone I talked to says its easier to pay a gunsmith to have the ambi lever installed. I found one, ordered it, and installed it in less than 5 minutes with a pair of tweezers a small pair of channel lock pliers. There is really no point to this post, except just wasting time while I stay awake on my night off...But I do have pictures. Oh and yes the gun shoots like a dream. The first picture is before the safety.
