Glocks rule and guess what? So does HK.
Here we go...
C'mon guys. Anytime there is a question between "Gun A" vs a Glock, you'd think there was a holy war going on. There is always a Glock owner that gets excited - ESPECIALLY on Glocktalk.
Nothing wrong with Glocks. But, I prefer, personally, many guns to a Glock. The P99 and HK's being among them.
I think the HK is made better. And, the trigger is a lot better - specially the SA trigger (U can carry a USP/USPc cocked and locked so U need not worry about the DA pull)
This is a great forum. On a topic that is as potentially fiery as this the disagreements were very gentlemanly. Good thing no one dissed a P99....
You really cant go wrong with a Glock 9mm. But if you can afford it I'd go with the HK.
You are either HK over Glock, or Ford over Chevy, or Pepsi over Coke. It is a constant battle, but every Glock owner I have met said they have a Glock because they could not afford an HK. It is the poor mans HK for lack of a better term. Not that you have to be rich to own one, but that you may be a little more frugal so you would settle for the cheaper weapon. I feel like you always get what you pay for.
I have shot many Glocks but I always go back to my HK and it was the duty weapon of choice for me. It to me has a better feel. The Compact versions are perfectly balanced. I can take my HK USP compact .40 and stand it up on the handle (pic to follow). Remember: "In a world of compromise, some don't."
As far as customer service goes, I had a friend buy an HK after shooting mine and after having it for a while wrote a nice email telling how much he appreciated the reliability and overall greatness of the gun. About a week after writing he received a package containing a H&K long sleeve T-shirt and a hat thanking him for the nice email. I have no personal story to tell you about H&K's customer service because in 9 years of owning mine I have never had to call them. In the past I shot more then the average person having to qualify twice a year as well as "fun" trigger time and training. I have dropped it, thrown it and slid it on the ground more times then I care to remember and it has never failed me. But that is just my experience with the HK. Take from it what you will.
