Rohrbaugh R-9. Pricey though.
In a perfect world, H&K would make a 9mm the size of a ruger lcp. I can assure all of you that prayer doesn't work, or one would be on the market by now. Thanks for nothing, allah..
The rorbaugh just isn't doin' it for me. It might me ok, but H&K quality is completely in another league IMO. I don't see why H&K couldn't make a 9mm the size of an LCP. With a slide that stayed open on the last round and a hammer. Game over, that's my dream gun.
I'm not holding my breath though.
Never had either an H&K or a Rorbaugh. The praise of H&K quality in firearms is justified from what I read, but I can't say I'm convinced it carries over to the marketing department:
How many OTHER pistols will still function perfectly with the rounds in the mag reversed?
P.S. Just kiddin' of course, but there is a Sears commercial showing someone using Sears drill on a 2X4 with the drill bit going backwards.. I just never understand why whoever it is that is in charge of those Public Relations type commercials don't do a bit more homework before producing something obviously WRONG...
And apparently NO ONE remotely familiar with firearms, mags, etc. ever had a look at the famous H&K ad before it was released...
Further, there are antique pocket semi-autos that have (single-action) hammers, but the idea turned out to be a bad one due to both lint-and-crud collection and safety issues. The Ruger LCP's hammer stays down (DAO action), as does the Kel-Tec's and the AMT Backup's, which helps correct the problem. Pocket single-actions, though, are more subject to safety-lever "wipe off" than are belt-holstered pistols. Also, the lint-and-crud problem now would have two areas to affect: hammer and safety-lever.
Life is, sorry to say, a series of compromises. I have somewhat the same wish list as you do, and I, too, am not holding my breath.
