This is a work of art and so I thought I’d share the link for HK lovers.
HK P30 – I love this gun. It comes in many variations but the best part of it is the grip. Find a used one and you can get a world class work of perfection for not much more , $800 than a New Glock $550. You can get it with a safety that can go cocked and locked, or double action. Or you can get the version that doesn’t have a safety and operates first shot double action and second shot single. You can always cock the hammer.
HK VP9 – This is the Glock competitor. If you like the HK grip and don’t want to hammer and prefer a striker rent a VP9. It has a nice trigger reset and a nice trigger overall. It points better than a Glock.
HK USP 9 – Big Grip and too big if you have a small hand. Great if you prefer the single action method of function. The trigger is nice but you have to get used to the size of the grip.
