View Full Version : How many of you carrying HK's?

I normally bounce between carrying a G19 or a HK USPc 9. I also have a have a P2000 v. 3 in .40 but it for some reason doesn't get carried a lot.

I know Glocks seem to be one of the more carried guns on this site, but was curious as to how many of you carry HK's and if so which one and in what caliber?

I alternate between a G19 and a P7M8. I carried the P7 exclusively for many years, but have become convinced that a larger magazine is called for so carry the Glock more often these days.

I carry a 40 LEM and shoot a 9mm LEM with our weekly group shooting. I had a V3 40 and sold it after I got the 9mm. I like the fact that I don't have to decock the weapon before holstering it.

I bought the P2000 originally because I am left hand and it's fully ambidextrious. It's also a good size for me. I just picked up my 40 this past weekend. I have the small back strap on the 9mm, but I left the medium in the 40 for Tuesday night shooting and realized that it fits my hand better. I will be changing the 9mm back to the medium tonight.

This pistol fits me well. I know there are many out there that are cheaper, but I went for ergonomics and left hand friendly.

I'll buy a HK45c when they're released to replace the HK USPc .45 ACP I sold off a few years back.

P2000 in .40, but only 'cause it's what's issued. I'd rather carry my Delta Elite but the agency won't cover me with that one.

I carried a .40 Compact for a couple of years, until I got dragged into the "bigger is better" mentality and switched to a Kimber pro CDP.
After two SI classes I'll go back to the HK with the next renewal.

I carry both the Glock 17 and the HK USPc .45 Out of all the handguns I've carried and or shot I like the HK the best. It is definitely the most accurate.

I carried the P7 version in 40cal for a while, and shot great scores with it, but it was so top heavy it just never rode on the belt well, so now it sets in the safe,

Have shot a few others but have never carried another one

Well I just got back from going to Brooks Brothers at the mall and wore my P7M8 so they could tailor my stuff for me. :D

I love that gun. Bage refers to it as a Bitchen Cool Guy gun or BCG. I like it cause it is soooooooo fast for reactive shooting.

The Kydex is actually more comfortable and thinner overall but the horsehide held a USP C (airsoft) in place very well during force on force with full contact activities (including rolling around on the ground with a 6'2" 230 lb MMA guy several times) during a recent SI course. Not sure the Kydex would retain as well, but going to have to test that one.

While I do not think that the finish is quite as good as on a Glock, it does hold up very well. I personally think that Glock has the best finish on the market.

P2000, P2000SK are issued and a USP/C, all LEM, all .40. The USP/C does not get used much anymore. I really have not found a pistol that shoots better, handles better, carries better and is all around any better than the P2000, so it is my 24/7 carry gun. I find the finish to be very tough indeed.

I carry the H&K USP compact in .40 in a comp tac C-tac holster. I love the pistol, it fits my hands well and I like the rough texture on the grips. There's no worry about it getting loose in your hands during a hot summer shooting session. My only regreat is that I didn't buy it in 45.

Neither the finish on my P7 PSP or on my benelli super 90 (sold by HK) are very robust. They can be touched up with some cold blue temporarily. But expect to get holster wear early and always transport the weapons carefully cased. You can't carry these guns as casually as you would a bushmaster, or a glock.

I carried a P7 from 1983 until 1999. I hated wearing the finish out on a $1200 pistol, and was concerned about mag capacity so I switched to a beretta 92g in 1999. Last week I retired my 92g for a glock mod 20.

The P7's finishes were know to be spotty on some of the production pistols and I also believe their shotgun finishes are different then the Hostile Environment (HE) finish found on the USP and P2000 series of pistols.

P7 owner's have been known to Robar their pistol when the time warrats it or as a preemptive measure on pistols without wear.

HK P2000 is my primary ccw since it's light weight and comfortable. It seems to be the only ccw that I can carry all day without any discomfort. Nice gun to shoot as well. It replaced a G19 that was previously my ccw.

--Preacher,

As a newly-certified U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officer, my duty weapon is a HK P2000 LEM .40 cal. Personally, if I had my druthers we'd have stuck with Glock, but as it stands the P2000's a good piece, particularly in the arena of compactness, and I was able to shoot a 296 out of 300 on the FLETC qual course.

Just wish to hell there was a better-range of CCW holsters available for it . . . :(

Steve Paulson

I've got a USP full size in .40 that I picked up for a song. Needs a new hammer strut, but once I get that taken care of I plan on making it my primary carry piece. It's bigger than my current EDC (XD40), but I'm hoping the custom holster I've got on the way from K&D holsters will make it disappear.

I tried a CTAC for it but was horribly disappointed (I have and love a CTAC for my XD). I nearly made the decision to sell the HK, but saw the custom option at www.kdholsters.com (http://www.kdholsters.com) and decided to give it a chance. Kevin is great on the phone and the prices are unbelieveable. $75 shipped for a custom leather IWB! 8-10 week lead time is the only down side.

TrojanSkyCop1, check out K&D. They have holsters (or will do a custom job) for the P2000.

I just got my HK USPc V1 9mm back from my brother. It will again become my carry gun and ride in a comp-tac CTAC. Generally, I load it with Speer Gold Dot 124grn or Remington Golden Sabers.

Either are very accurate in the USPc.

I really like the USPc's in theory, but the reality is that my hands just don't. I shoot high thumb & the safety of the USP's beats the hell out of the base of my thumb. Have any of you overcome this? How?

Buy a version without the thumb safety-or a P2000. My new P2000 V3 w/decocker fits my hand like it was made for it (changeable backstraps are a nice feature on the P2000's), and while I don't shoot it nearly as well as my 1911's, I think that's going to improve over time. For carry purposes, I'm always been a big proponent of the multiple mechanical safeties on the 1911 series (still am), but the first double action pull on the P2000 is sufficiently difficult enough to satisfy my personal safety requirements.

I've got a Comp-tac Infidel unti I can get a quality leather holster.

Yeah, it's called a callous, remove those sissy-girly hands from the keyboard and take up some good MANnual labor.;) :p

I found that shooting every other or every fourth week is enough to keep that specific web area on the thumb calloused.

Gun Mutt
04-19-2007, 09:22 PM
"...it's called a callous..."
Ohhhh, that was cold! :p

I've mentioned before that I have stupidly simian thumbs...no joke; my ancestors didn't survive because they ran faster, they just climbed higher.

I have slightly larger hands than average - but my thumbs aren't just longer to the tip than most people, the distance to the base of my thumb is truly closer to a monkey's foot than DaVinci's anotomy of the human hand.

It isn't the pad of my thumb that takes a whuppin, it's where the bottom interior of the thumb bone prior to meeting the web of the hand that smarts when shooting even a 9mm USPc.

"...P2000 or USPc w/o thumb safety..."
Shot many a round thru P2000 - liked it, but if I were to purchase a TDA 9mm it would be a Sig 226. Love the feel & index of safetyless USPc's...but a) I love & shoot better with Glock/1911 & b) the manual safety is the draw to the USP for me.

High-thumb 1911 trained shooters transitioning to a usp can find themselves riding the safety, engaging the hammer dropping function and disabling the gun, especially under stress when they really clamp down on their grip.

The rule remains, thoroughly test a new system under varied conditions before switching over.

As has been noted elsewhere to de-cock the hammer on a USP/USPc requires 45* of travel in the control lever past the horizontal -- that's a BIG SNAFU on the user's part.

--Charley,

+1 on that. While my P2000, being a DAO, won't have the problem w/safety engagement, I still think it's not tested and proven enough under those "varied conditions" you cite, especially when you compare and contrast its service record to the well-proven Glock 17 that my agency (CBP) used to issue.

P2000 v3, .40 caliber with 165 grain Golden Sabers. After Approx. 2000 rounds, not a single failure to feed, misfire, jamb, or any other problem. It will eat anything you put in it. That is why I will continue to carry it. Absolutely love this gun!

Just recently moved into the HK realm. I first bought a .40 P2000SK v2 (LEM). I liked it so much after the first time at the range that I got a .40 P2000 v2 the next week.

Today I just picked up a 9mm P2000 v2 for my better half.
I really like the LEM trigger and the pistol feels perfect in my hand.
I still like my Glock 19 and 23 but the HKs are very fine weapons and will likely migrate to my EDC.

I bought a used 45usp years ago for its left handed capabilities. Since then I've done a trigger job on it to smooth out the creepy/gritty awful trigger pull. Now its mainly my house gun but I carry it occassionally and shoot it regularly to keep up with the double/single system. I mostly carry Glocks now. The trigger job worked great and I have to say the finish has held up superbly.

My Wife has the HK P2000SK and loves it. She really likes the LEM trigger pull as well because it feels alot like her revolvers. I personally don't care to much for the mag release, but it doesn't bother her a bit. I think it's just because I'm so used to push to release and it's hard to change old habits. She on the other hand has always shot revolvers so it's not a problem.

Glad I read this post. I had an early USP and had problems with it. A cpl of shooting buddies also had them and found them less than stellar.

One of the strange quirks was mags that liked to disassemble themselves
when firing:eek:
Kind of left me cool about the gun, but since then it would seem they have worked out the bugs.

I know our state police are happy with their USP .45s. And it seems everyone here is having good luck with em. May have to acquire one!

I still own a P9S & a P7M8 and enjoy those occasionally but don't use either for carry anymore.

Yes, it has grown on me quite a bit. :) I'd have to rate it as one of my Top 5 fave pistols, along with the 1911, Beretta 92FS, Glock 38, and HK P7M8. (Yeah, no revolvers make the Top 5, but I guess the Ruger GP-100 would get 6th place.)

Took my old USP 45 out for another test ride. Bought it from a buddy ages ago cause I could make it left handed. I did a trigger job on it (first generation, really tough, gritty). Shot one big ragged hole from 10yards. What a big difference. A bit big to carry, but its my house gun with 230g HP's and Surefire light...easy to rack and shoot in the nite:)

I do my training and practice with that set-up,[10 rounders hold 12 9mm, and 12 rounders hold 15 9mm] but for carry I stick to the 9mm magazines. I will say, that in over 5000 or so rounds using the .40 mags, I have had no problems. But I still feel better with the 9mm mags for carry.

Y'know, the more I shoot this P2K, the more I love it. While I still would rather carry a Glock, I'm proud to report that I shot a perfect qual course yesterday, thus making me 2 for 4 with this weapon. It's the only firearm with which I've ever shot a perfect score on a qual course, either in my military or civilian L.E. work, and now twice to boot! :cool:

My first gun ever was the HK USP Compact Tactical .45 acp. That was only 18 months ago. My second gun was the HK USP Compact Stainless .45 acp. When I heard that they weren't making the Stainless anymore, I had to have one. I've been on the lookout for a Fullsize Stainless. Those are my two primary CCW guns. Not at the same time. I definitely need a P7M8 too.

Since then, I've purchased a Glock 17, Glock 30, Kimber Eclipse Target II, Seecamp .32, and yesterday a Kel-Tec PF9. I've been carrying the Seecamp .32 as a BUG but I might switch to the Kel-Tec PF9 if it proves reliable.

USPC LEM in .40.It's what's issued and I'm really comfortable with it. Otherwise a Sig 239 in .40, it's thinner and easier to hide but just 7+1.

I`ve got a P 2000 subcompact from my department last week as a back up gun and for surveillance on hot summer days. My first gun is a P 2000. I`ve shot only 100 rounds with the little baby but I`m pretty impressed with th accuracy. It holds 4" on 25 yards.
Which version of the P 2000 do you use? The DA/SA or the DAO?

I don't know if your department lets you use your own holsters... for concealment you may want to check out the Ehud holster. I've got one (kind of a custom job from Dale Fricke :rolleyes:) and it works very well. PM me if you want to go that route - I will have a pretty good option to get a holster to Germany shortly.

Niedersachsen State Police use the P 2000 DAO and P 2000 SK DAO.
A choice I didn`t like in 2002 when P 2000 pistols were introduced ( I prefered the Glock 17 which is the pistol of all SWAT teams in Niedersachsen) but: the gun is realy tough , reliable and accurate. I fire 200 rounds per week, never had a malefunction or a broken part since 2002

Looks like you got the perfect amount of training ;) to get used to the trigger!

I hope so. We also have 8 H&K P 2000 FX and 2 K simunition rounds per year for tactic training and FOF (we are 6 operators in my team).

In areas where magazine capacity is a (legal) issue, I have a P7M8 with me. I used to use my P7M13 as my primary defensive and competition weapon, but have now switched to a Para-Ordnance P18 for most shooting, and a Para Hawg 9 or a Glock 26 (with a recontoured grip so it points like a 1911) for CCW.

I miss the P7s.

Just bought my wife an HK45C. She is now learning to use it before carrying it. First range night was last Saturday. She handles the recoil without a problem, but her anticipation of the recoil is causing some shots to go low.

Love the H&K. I have a USP Compact .40 cal as my daily carry gun and a USP Compact .45 cal in the lock box in my car. Accurate as stink, reliable as the the sunrise.

I carried Glocks for a long time and still love them, but the H&K is what has filled my holster for the past 2 years...;)

I carry an HK USP 45 fullsize. I made a Kydex holster fro mine in my KNifemaking shop(those of you that know me know what I do for a living), but I also have a few Blackhawk holsters for it too.

I been trying to figure out which gun might do the job for Taka to carry but shes very partial to Glocks. Nothing wrong with Glocks, I have both.

I carry the USP compact .40SW LEM (Law Enforcement Modification).

The LEM makes the trigger action somewhat similar to the Glock and removes the safety selector.

This is also the type weapon issued by my "department." HK offers the same weapon to folks in my line of work for a discount. I wanted to keep the equipment familiar for both on/off duty...

I'm in a war zone as a civilian, and the military won't let me carry firearms.

So does a Handkerchief & Knife count?

My favorite .40 was always my USPc in .40. For the past months, the only ammo that has consistently been available at the local wal-mart has been Blazer Brass in .40 s&w.

As a result my USPc has become my most carried firearm.

Alternate between the G19 and HK45.
*Update* G19 traded in for USP 45. The plan is to go back to HK's after December qualifications.
Further 'update'; After a month, HAD to get another 19. It's September 2010, still carrying G19 every day. :)

The second gun I bought after I got my carry license was a USPc in .40. It's currently my car gun. Also have a P7 PSP that's probably going to replace my Springfield EMP as my "formal" (tuckable) gun after I put another few hundred rounds through it.

I will sometimes carry my USP 45 in the cooler season. The length of the pistol is more of a problem than the wt. I have a good pancake holster to distribute the wt. I would carry it more often if I can find a good shoulder holster for it.

I have to update the status of my USP compact from "EDC" to "UTC" (Used to carry) :rolleyes: - The Glock 19 conceals better for me and is just as accurate.

Seriously considering tossing the HK45C because it's hard to flag the thumb on the drawstroke without running into the cocked hammer first at some points...other than that I'll be doing cardio and weightlifting to expand chest size to allow for AIWB

still trying to decide between the M&P 40/45 and a lighter drop in sear or a Glock 23 or 27 with RMR as a possible replacement...

Used to have a USPf .45 and USPc .45. Sold/traded both. I would love to get another for HD, but I thought that they can't do anything better than my Glocks for some reason and the Glocks are way cheaper in price. Still thinking of trying to get another G30sf, or another G21sf for HD here in the mountains.

If you want to throw the money at it, the HK is a fine choice though.
