    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!

    They're the arguably the most reliable, well built, and accurate .45 pistol that one can buy. Also, as with any pistol, if the owner actually shoots their guns the price spent on ammo over the life of the gun will dwarf the initial cost of the pistol itself.

    There are a LOT of HK45C owners 'out there'... perhaps not "here", but it a very popular EDC pistol. Suggest you check out HKPro Forum.

    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.

    I carry full size hk's, iwb. The secret is a good leather holster, with 25 degree cant and belt loops spaced far apart to distribute weight. The keys in my pocket give me more discomfort.

    If you buy an HK you will likely become an "HK guy". Some people get over the HK bug... More do not, once they become infected...

    I have several H&K and both the above. The HK45 is too large to carry concealed but where there is a will there is a way. I like the HK45c better and easy to conceal. Both weapons are accurate and I have used them in matches. The P 2000sk series is better if you are smaller in size and are looking to eliminate the bulk. Good luck on your choice. I would go to your local shop and handle the ones in question and get a feel for your comfort. as for accuracy H&K doesn't compromise.

    My HK45c is one of my favorite carry pistols. Absolutely reliable and a dream to shoot. Very low recoil. More accurate than I am, beyond a doubt. Remember the old saying..."you get what you pay for!" I carry mine in an MTAC IWB with no problem...very comfortable and easy to conceal. It is actually comparable in size to my Gen3 G19. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Not any more they are not. The HK45 and the HK45c are now made in the USA. I like you have one made in Germany and will never sell it.

    The HK45c is very accurate and very pleasant to shoot. I am sold on H&K products. Maybe a bit pricy but as the saying goes if you pay peanuts you get nothing but monkeys.

    Wow. Serious necropost.

    But....to answer the OP's question (even though he has probably bought, shot, carried, and sold the 45 that he was asking about in the 4 years between the question and my answer):

    I have an HK45C, and I find that it carries extremely well in a Comp-Tac Minotaur IWB holster. It is very similar in size to my USP Compact 9mm - in other words, a lot like a Glock 19 - but I do like the ergonomics on the HK's better than a Glock.

    I will also say that out of the three HK's I own (all three have seen frequent IDPA use, and one of them is almost 20 years old) not a one of them has ever given me anything other than drop-dead reliable service.

    This used to be my EDC, it concealed well for me in an IWB holster.
