Took my H&K P2000SK to range today
I took my new H&K P2000SK to the range today. Wow what a sweet gun. :danceban:
At 21 feet I put 17 out of the first 20 rounds into about 2 inches. The first 3 were all over the place until I got the trigger dialed in. Subsequently, I tried my reloads. Not a single complaint. Took my reloads like they were brand new. Then I tried hollow points. Again no complaints. +P no problems. The manual says continous use of +P and +P+ ammunition will cause excessive wear on gun. To me that means limited use is ok. :king:
I had to stop there, I got into a conversation with another gun nut about guns and ran out of time. He had a Colt Mustang and we were comparing it to my Sig P238. He wants a Sig now. Tried to buy mine. Not for sale.
I've had discussions on these forums about breaking in guns. There is good logic behind it, but, here again with the H&K it proves it's hooey! A well built gun will do what it was designed to do from the get go. Go bang, bang, bang, bang............
I have several guns, Browning Hi Power, Colt Gold Cup 1911, S&W 1006, Glock 23 and Glock 26, Sig P238, Springfield Armory EMP 40, and now the H&K P2000SK that shoot perfectly out of the box (pre-emptive cleaning of course.).
Now the fact that these guns all cost $500 and up should send a message. If you pay $300 for a gun, (I'm talking new guns.) then expect to take a chance. I did with Kel Tec. It cost me $600 (PF9 and P11) to learn not to buy Kel Tec, which I could have spent on a Glock right off the bat.
Come on Glock, make us a single stack 9mm under one inch thick, pleeeeeeeeease!
I tested the short reset. That is, when I fired I held the trigger back then let it move forward until I heard a click and then I fired again. The trigger didn't go all the way back to normal reset position. This is great for quick follow ups. Of course I have to practice, not much good in standing there waiting to hear the click.
The fellow gun nut says he is a Sig guy and Sig shares this feature with H&K. He discribed the same feature on his DAK Sigs. Well if I ever get my hands on some money, again, I may have to try one of those Sigs.
Sorry if I got off topic. Just happy to have another great gun in my collection.
