I currently own a Hk45c which I bought for CCW. Love the weapon, utterly reliable and recoil is nil.
My only gripe is that the slide is a little too long for me. Saving my $ now for the P2000sk .40 which I will use for CC (currently a thread going on now on HK PRO discussing the size difference….45c vs. "sk"). A few inches can make a big difference!!
As far as price, you get what you pay for! My .45c has been flawless, which is one reason I will sacrifice moving to another caliber (.40), when I really want to stay on the .45 platform. If the "sk" came in .45, that would've been my initial purchase. Also like the fact that I can carry CONDITION 2…
Get the Hk45c, you will sleep good knowing you made a sound investment!
HOW MUCH IS YOUR LIFE WORTH?
I've been carrying mine daly for over a year. It is only marginally larger than a G19. I conceal mine easily with an IWB holster and a cover garment; and I am short and fat. If one has the proper physique, this pistol would easily conceal using one of the tuckable IWB offerings.
The pistol itself is marvelous. Yes, they are expensive compared to the competition. Yes, the magazines are outrageously priced. Glocks and XDs (and now, M&Ps) were made for those who buy on price alone. HKs are for those who desire a bit of panache in their iron, and don't mind paying extra for same.
The only part that I disagree with is how great people are saying the triggers are, the ones I have shot are not good by any means. I do agree that they are bulky, overpriced, and reliable though.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
