    Smile Range today with both HKs

    Went to the range today took both HKUSPCompacts .40 and .45. I took Fiocchi 170gr FMJ .40 and 230gr .45 FMJ Ammo. I could sure feel that the .40 had more recoil then the .45. Both HKs shot much better then I could shoot them. But the main thing they did not have any problems.
    And do I love the quick take down for cleaning really a simple deal.

    Yeah they call the .40 recoil "snappy". It's only snappy when you don't have a firm grip. How was your target?

    Did you look like this?

    Glad you had a good day there Flanker. HK is a fine weapon for sure.

    Thumbs up I expected nothing less

    Just like a week ago when I took the first HK45 to the range.Today I expected nothing less then a problem free shoot. I can't recall ever reading of someone buying a new HK handgun and it failing right out of the box. I have read of manty other handguns quickly failing their buyers.

    I am not a fan of the D/A so mine is setup for S/AorD/A but the USPCompacts can all be set up S/AorD/A with a simple change of the trigger setup. But I don't care for a non-military trigger so mine is the standard weight pull.
