The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

I have a P2000 in 9mm in LEM with night sights that I have reduced the pull of the trigger. I love it! I talked about it so much that my mother gave me her Taurus Model 85 and purchased a used P2K in 9mm with LEM.

While I have shot many H&K's, this is the first of their pistols that I have owned. It's still in the break-in stages, so I have not yet carried it. So far, it has swallowed any and all ammunition without fumbling.
There is something absolutely "competent" about its operation. You know how some pistols feel like they're on the edge of having troubles, like just the least little thing will cause them to fail. This gun imparts exactly the opposite feeling. Shot after shot, it feels as though nothing could stop it. (Hard to explain.)
I don't know, exactly, what H&K got right, but they put that into the USP and now the P2000 as well. Come to think of it, the P7's that I've shot also had a similar feeling of utter competence. Strong, capable, solid enough to withstand whatever rounds are used, loose enough to accommodate any less-than-perfect ammo, yet tight enough to be reliably accurate.
H&K's "juice" is a good one, whatever it is. I hope they keep putting it into their pistols. Whatever it is ... it's workin'.
If things keep going this well during the break-in, I plan to be carrying this one before too long. I've got a DC Special holster by H.B.E. Specialty Leatherworks just waiting for it.
I sometimes carry an H&K USP 40, usually in cold weather, because it's easier to conceal. I do have an old Walkman type carry case that hides a full size gun well and looks old school enough to match the person carrying it. Its a great gun with typical German precision and attention to detail.
What is that maroon one up above this post??

HK guy all the way here.
I've carried a P2000SK for about four years in a Galco Concealable.
A truely great, world class civilian carry or agency duty firearm.
My first HK was a stainless USPc 9mm, then a couple of P7s then a USP Elite .45acp.
I still carry my USP 40 full size for winter time. I purchased mine back in 93 . Saw it in the gun case and knew it was something I wanted.

I carry my P7 PSP in a DelFatti IWB most times...I love the P7 series...it is the most accurate combat handgun that I have ever shot...for me anyway..never has hiccuped or failed to fire what I have ran thru it...
Ok, I'll admit it. I'm an H&K fan boy. I carry a HK45c and I want to get its bigger brother (the full size HK45). I was thinking about doing the LEM trigger but I like the feel of the SA so I carry C&L. I am waiting on my shaggy holster from CCC. Anyway, that is my $.02.
Glad to see the other H&Kaholics here

I'm a P7 owner (I bought it for the wife) and I think it's an awesome gun!
H&K are great, just really large for the most part. I think they would sell about 100 times more if they were a hair smaller and cheaper.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
