New HK P2000 SK, pics and range report
Hey guys, I picked up a new subcompact 9mm yesterday. Looked at several different guns, all the usual suspects basically, but this one called out to me the most so I brought it home. :smile: Heckler & Koch P2000 SK. It came with 2 10-round mags and an extra backstrap. The gun is DA/SA. As would be expected with HK, the fit and finish are top notch. I paid $885 for it.
I happened to have a range reservation for last night already, so I gave it a quick 10 minute cleaning, and tested it out. Felt recoil is very manageable, and fairly light for a gun of this size. Not punishing to shoot in any way. I ran 100 rounds of PMC 115gr, 50 rounds of Blazer aluminum 115gr, 100 rounds of Sellier & Bellot 115gr, and then finally 50 rounds of Fiocchi 124gr hollowpoints. I generally use the Fiocchi for carry ammo as I've never had a failure with them, and I can buy a box of 50 for around $19~ usually. This makes practicing with the carry ammo much more reasonable than shooting $1/round stuff. I experienced zero failures of any kind, the gun ran perfectly. Again, not a big surprise with an HK.
Anyhow, my initial impressions of the gun are very good. It seems to be beautifully built and reliable. It is also pretty light even fully loaded, making it very easy to carry. My other primary carry gun is an XD 45 compact which is significantly larger. Carrying the HK is a joke in comparison, I don't even know its there. :biggrin2:
Here are some pics, I've put my Ruger LCR .38 next to the HK for a size comparison as most people know about how big a snubby is. I pocket carry the LCR sometimes when I'm out walking the dog or just running down to the corner store, etc.
I'll post a few targets from the range as well. These were at about 7 yards, as far back as the shorty lane I was using went. I achieved some pretty good groups overall, I found the gun to be extremely accurate, and it shot dead on where I aimed it.
