I have taken my HK USP .45, and throw it around against trees, slam it to the ground, throw it in the air, threw it in a mudpuddle to which it was run over with my van and it never got hurt, and it still fired every time. I do not think a drop of that nature should be of any concern to a HK weapon. Now if it had been a Taurus.........

Please note that this sort of thing does not go on all the time. I had done this so as to see how dependable it would be as I am a plumber and I at many times have to crawl around under dusty dirty buildings, and sometimes the sewer lines I have to cut out may contain several days worth of unmentionable substances that always seem to find its way on me no matter what precautions are taken. If you do not think a plumber should need to carry a firearm under a building you should come to work for me for a bit, you would be amazed at what you find there! There have been times when I need to be out on the edge of a 2 story roof line trying to tie in vents, so if one is dropped from 2 stories and bounces off concrete it would be harder than a tree. If it falls out during backfilling a foundation, believe me, it will get major dirt in it. So with all this in mind and I am driving home and the call is made to use it, it better go bang or I don't want it. Sorry, but videos can be doctored to what ever they want you to know. real life testing is what I want. 800.00 to me is a drop in the bucket compared to my life.
And if it would have broken, what then ? And what did you do with the "test gun" after the test ?
