    Why donesn't Hk ever get mentioned in these battle of the semi-autos?

    Just asking. I'm going to guess however it's the price difference.

    Imo price difference. The major battles are over $500 guns, how much does it take to start into an hk?

    Because the one I want (HK Elektra) costs twice as much as my Glock. That's a whole lotta ammo money :) Maybe if I'm a very good girl Santa will bring me one, but that's about my best chance right now.

    Cost is the number one reason. All the rest are under 600 you can't find a HK under 800 makes a huge difference for not a lot more as far as Eros and function. My opinion though, many may find me wrong.

    Because when you have one of the best guns money can buy ! What are you going to compare it to a gun made in Bosnia these are the same people that brought you the yogo. or a square block like a glock. But these are my opinions

    Love H&K's! But my theory is (and some may disagree :p) the S&W's, XD's and Glocks offer similar performance for half the price. It's like comparing a mustang to an Audi R8, sure the stang has potential to keep up BUT the R8 will always get more respect IMO which makes it a not so fair comparison.

    Of course there is always the H&K vs Sig battle :p

    I agree. Note: Glock has polygonal rifling but advises against lead ammo, HK & Kahr also have polygonal rifling but have no warning. Yet, both are above the $5-600 price level. Do you get what you pay for ? It's a personal call but my .02 is yes. ( I paid $522 for USP 45 in 1996)

    I've seen used ones run around 600, new you can get em 800 and up, depending on variant. Pricey but imo absolutely worth every penny.

    H&K's are excellent guns. But honestly, they themselves feel a bit "blocky" in the grip to me. The P30 is about the only current model with decent ergos for me (and its pretty great). It's also hard to wrap my head around dropping much more than $600 on a plastic pistol...much less $1000. I'm sure a ton of shooters can identify with that. I guess I did pay almost $700 for my XDm45 though.

    When I think about what pistols I'd be willing to sink $700-1200 into, there are three that come immediately to mind: 1911s, alloy Sigs, and maybe a nice performance center S&W revolver. If the day ever comes that I do drop $1K on tupperware, it'll probably be an FN 5.7. Just my own preferences.

    Thank you .

    One thing we need to remember is a gun is like a car we all have different taste What I think fit me mite not fit someone else . It would we very boring on this forum if we all had the exact same gun.

    SSGF - why did you decide on DAO ? I have USP and USPC but both are DA/SA w decocker on safety which I think is variant 1. I love to carry locked & cocked just like my 1911.

    The platform is one of the most tested on the planet. It's accuracy & reliability are legendary but ergonomics are not one of its many virtues.
