    Hey all.

    I’m curious to see if anyone here owns and carries the HK45 Compact.
    I’ve been interested in this pistol for a long time and have tried to trade into one a couple times at Bud’s Gunshop but was unsuccessful. Everything I’ve read and saw on them was positive. HK does have that reputation for quality stuff. Of course I also like their P30sk too. Heck, what DON’T I like would be the easier question.

    Anyway, I’d like to hear your thoughts on them, if you don’t mind sharing them.

    Than you
    Larry

    I had one for years, carried it and really liked it. All the HK’s I’ve owned were the LEM trigger action, which I think is perfect for a carry pistol. Currently, I’m carrying a HK P2000SK, 9mm, LEM of course, nice size, I carry IWB in a Milt Sparks VM ll.

    I’ve checked out the P30SK but to me it’s a little clunky for a carry pistol, and similar enough to the P2000SK that it didn’t make sense for me to pick up. However, if it’s your first HK for carry, go for it.

    I used to have an HK USP compact 45. It was a very accurate shooter and recoiled less than most 9mm I’ve shot. I got a Dan Wesson Vbob and ended up preferring the trigger and slimmer profile for carry and moved on. There is nothing bad I could say about that gun though.

    I had one and carried it for some time, great pistol, reliable as all get out. Traded it off when I consolidated/downsized. I prefered the magazine flat floor plates for CCW, carried it in a Galco Summer comfort, thought it shot softer then the full-size, Only drawback Mags are expensive.
    Mine was the (light)LEM model, Nice thing with the HK45c is pricing has reduced some, HKs can be addicting

    Just wanted to add There’s another serious contender out there for CCW in .45acp
    The S&W shield, It can be had for less cash but not as softer shooter as the HK
    Mags are cheaper also.
    But for a good all around .45 pistol the HK 45c or USPC 45 Are really tough to beat, if I fell in to a nice HK 2tone uspc 45 it would probably be my new go to CCW.

    Have a HK 45C and a P2000SK. Both flawless shooters. In my opinion there is just something about a H&K. They can become habit forming.

    I Have a HK 45c LEM and it carries very well in a Raven concealment OWB holster. Holds nice and tight to your body. Can't go wrong with an HK.
