    HK Fullsize 45

    Most people think that we are crazy in the Great north. I usually run around with the HK 45ACP full size on the hip. Very accurate and can get the perfect grouping.

    Between this or the XDM9 5.25 gun. What one do you think I should carry.

    Sorry, but all I can tell is that you managed to fire five rounds in the general direction of a target without the pistol jamming, or misfiring.

    Can't tell as far as accuracy goes, but as far as caliber I would utilize the 45 Auto. This is just my preference, but ultimately it boils down to you and what you can comfortably deliver hits with.

    I'm an HK fanboy, so I would advise the HK45! It's a pretty large gun to carry all day though.

    Range shooting is completely different than defensive shooting and one carries to defend themselves. Not sure at all what you are asking or what that video shows.

    Im showing the PERFECT GROUPING! But anyways. Thats my buddy shooting it. I have taken a course and I carry it when its cold as easy to conceal. I carry a baby gun when its hot cause I can carry that on the gym shorts when hot! I love the HK45 but totally agree its too f'in big. So Bodyguard.380 it is until I buy a Pro Carry Of course!

    I have to agree with the others, I can't tell anything about the grouping or even if paper was hit on this video. That said, the HK45 would be too large of a frame for every day carry for me. For defensive carry, a medium frame .40 S&W is plenty for me (like a Glock 23). As to the video, shots fired in a defensive situation will be much closer together that this range video-you will not have the luxury of that much time to reaquire the target. Remember most defensive shootings occur inside 5-7 yards.

    You are actually ONLY showing somebody shooting down range.
    How do we know how perfect his grouping was, you ended the video too soon.

    It drives me nuts when someone shifts his grip between each shot!

    Im sorry , Thats my buddy like I said and next time I will for sure show more of the Target after Im Done. I actually sold that gun to him. I deceided that it is way to big for me. I bought an AK47 and a Bodyguard .380 for what I sold him the HK for. Sunday GunDay - YouTube
    Anyone know anything about an VPER AK47? The bodyguard .380 is the last gun that is shot in the video!

    I agree the HK45 is a little large for carry. I sold mine and bought a HK45c and that made a huge difference.

    Yeah Im thinking about selling it but I paid a pretty penny for it. No one wants to pay what it is worth. It shoots amazing good so i will probably just keep it as a range gun or an Open carry gun.
