Regardless of whether not H&K only caters to LEO/Military, they are missing out on market share for not giving us civies what we want! They know damn well that their products have a cult-like following. Their phone lines are tied up all day because of civilians like me who like to order springs for their H&Ks, ask questions about pistol release dates, etc.
Hell, I'd be willing to bet that a good chunk of their sales is from civilians. While there are LE agencies that issue H&Ks, the fact is most of the agencies out there still issue Glocks, M&Ps, etc because they are cheaper. It's the handgun enthusiast or hobbyist that goes out and collects dozens $1000 H&Ks for the hell of it. Cops don't do that. But that's just how H&K does business, and as long as the handguns they do produce continue to be the best, I'm happy enough!
