    Hello all.

    Hi. I was looking at different forums last night for info and reviews on H&K's P2000SK and liked what I saw here. I am here to stay. I read a lot of level headed comments here last night. That is hard to find sometimes in other places. Looking forward to spending time on this site. Happy shooting all.

    Shotugn,

    welcome to the mix. are you another HK fan? there are a few of us around, although we're still outnumbered by people who love and swear by old slab sides, and of course there are the people who swear by combat tupperware...

    anyway, did you find any decent reviews of the SK? I'm thinking about getting one eventually.

    Thanks for the welcome guys.

    Hey firefighter, I love the look of HK's product line but I have never fired one. So far the only bad thing I have heard about HK is the price. I have found very little on the P2000SK. :( But, knowing their reputation I don't think I can go wrong. My firearm experience is mostly limited to rifles and shotguns. Not sure if the p2000sk is the best gun to start with, but I wanted a good ccw.

    Not sure about the reference to slab sides (1911's ?) and tupperware (glock's ? ). Kinda new to this whole scene. This seems like a great place to get info and relible opinion though. Thanks again for the welcome guys.

    Indeed Shotgun - Slabsides is - John Moses Browning's probably most famous piece of gun design - in all its incarnations. The 1911 A1.

    Tupperware - hehe - well yes, the Glock is somewhat defiled and denigrated thru this label - tho in truth and even tho I am not a ''Glocker'' - it does not deserve such a put-down!

    I have P95 and P97 and their frames are polymer so - guess they too are Tupperware in part - my SW99 also.

    What the heck - what shoots good is OK by me!

    Doesn't Browing have a firearms museum in Ogden, Utah? My dad has a colt combat commander but I have never fired it. Guess I ought to get around to it, eh?

    I have been told that if you start shooting with a large caliber you can develop a flinch. I shot a .22 pistol about fifteen years ago but since then, no handguns. Should I wait to fire the Colt cc tell I have had some experience or am I ok?

    On that note, what about purchasing a P2000SK .40 sw for my first handgun. Good idea or bad?

    Shotgun - starting small does help - I am sure of that but - equally I see no reason to HAVE to develop flinch with larger cals.

    A good dose of dry fire is good pre live fire and concentration then with live fire on sights and trigger control can be all that is needed.

    Useful if an experienced shooter is by your side - and that way it is easy to deal with flinch if it comes - thru sometime ''ball and dummy'' methods... and advice.

    Plenty of rounds thru a .22 is invariably a good starter tho - and for a semi centerfire - I'd try a 9mm first before going to .40.

    Work way up often works best.

    I have zero experience with the 2000 but - going by for instance a 226 - either you can opt for 9mm - OR - the .40 platform, which gives then an option to have and fit a .357 SIG barrel... and vice versa.

    9mm is AFAIK not going to give options for moving to .40.
