    I carry my HK45C, and one spare magazine. I use a TT Gunleather "Mikes Special" IWB leather, with elephant trim. It's really comfortable for me. I always feel it there, but it's not bothersome. It conceals well under some longer T shirts, and very well under a button down.

    It's the first pistol I have conceal carried, and it's great. I have run probably a little under 500 rounds through the pistol, with no malfunctions of any kind.











    Here it is pictured with an SL8-1/G36K SBR, which is also registered as a pistol in Michigan.

    I consider the HK 45C an outstanding carry option assuming the ergonomics and caliber work for you. While the gun is somewhat large for easy concealment, I think usability trumps conceal-ability. Just wear a slightly larger covering shirt or jacket. I'm only 5' 8", 148 lbs., and have never been found to be printing. "Micropistols" are ridiculously overrated and over-hyped. In fact, I think they're outright dangerous in the hands of a great many owners. If/when SHTF I fear many folks won't have the requisite handling or marksmanship skills. Like shoes, I'd rather wear a little large than a little small.

    I love carrying my HK45C as well.

    Hey...that gun holster is sharp! How is the retention on that leather? Does it maintain it's form or does it stretch over time? I may visit that website myself and order me one for my HK45C.

    Thank you! In the several months I have carried it, I have not noticed any retention differences on my draws. It has a firm grasp on the gun, I never worry about it falling or slipping out. The leather does have a steel reinforcement piece on the inside to help maintain the shape, and I'd imagine it assists in retention somewhat too. The TT Gunleather holsters are well worth the price, and wait, no question about that IMO.

    Those holster are sweet bro! I visited the site and loved the product. I actually contact the owner yesterday and have been speaking with him for the past few hours about which ones I'm ordering for my HK45C and HKP30SK. Can't wait to get them!

    if you are referring to my "HC.45C is supper accurate" I have the USPc in .45 too, I haven't run them side to side for accuracy but the HK.45C surprises me, every time I shoot it and the HK.45C carries a little easier both good weapons though.

    Worth noting that the original HK45 was slated to feature the HK45C frame, rather than the P30 type frame according to what Ken Hackathorn and Larry Vickers envisioned. Not to mention Seal Team 6 went for the Compacts, I honestly prefer it to the HK45 personally, just by handling it… had not shot either though (disclaimer).

    I own both the P2000SK and HK45C. Side by side, there actually is only a slight difference in size. A good holster and belt negates any weight difference. Factor that by your analysis of round count to caliber. I'll take round count. I carry a P30 mag with an XGrip thing on it in my P2000SK. Haven't carried my HK45C in years, or my P30 LEM either.
