A year later
And still love the hk45. To date with maybe 5k rounds through the tube the only issues came from women limpwristing it when I let them try it or kicking it around on a sandbar with the action open and mag out. That finally got enough crud in it for it to fail. A quick swish in the river solved that. (it went to a gunsmith for a detail strip and cleaning.) I absolutely love my 45. I actually havn't bought any others simply because I like mine better. There is a lot to be said for an accurate weapon that, provided the ammo is good and the action closed, will get rounds on target every time.
Well as Larry Vickers says about the HK45's: it's bomb proof!
