    Backed into it.

    Was a NYC cop for 20 years. Retired, moved to Vero Beach, Florida. Walked into my LGS in Sept. of '14 for a new c.c.holster. Sitting in the case, with a kind of ethereal glow (picture the green trunk in REPO MAN) was the venerable MARK 23 with the KAC suppressor attached. Went in for a $50 holster......walked out with a $3K purchase and my first 6 month wait. As stated before, the addiction is REAL!

    P.S. - the LGS was the 'old' KNIGHTS ARMAMENT plant from the 80's b/f they moved to Titusville.

    I was lurking on a suppressor forum researching to buy my first suppressor. The two top recommendations back then for a host were the Sig P226 and the HK USP9sd. I went to a gun store and held both and liked the way the HK felt best so it went home with me.

    Those ads for the 94 and 91 (swamp guy) in SOF magazine in the early 80s. I ogled the full page adds for these in Shotgun News ever wishful my parents might take mercy on me and fork out the $500 or whatever they were back then -- no chance in hell. I never lost that attraction and started collecting and shooting them as an adult with disposable cash. Many HKs later, I still have not lost the passion for them.

    read these forums for quite a long tme. @AGG convinced me on a Mark 23. was my first HK purchase. just because work was good and i had the scratch, and it was always on my radar, since i went to MEPS and was disqualified from UDT school for high blood pressure/eyesight/and bad knees so they said. was a life changing wake up - joined my Union, and have been happy ever since. no complaints, minor regrets.

    I was exposed to HKs early in Europe and have always liked German things. I bought my first HK, a G3 type in the late 70s at a gun show. I believe it was 400 or so used which was a good bit of money at the time. Later in the 80s we had a fellow open up a small part time gunshop near my base and he stocked HKs, very rare in those days. I bought a P7M13, then traded that to another guy for a P7M8(grip size) and I purchased a NIB HK94A3. When USSOCOM adopted the MK23 I became interested in the new polymer HK pistols. I wanted a USP 45 but they were unobtainable at first so I bought the only one I could find, a USP 40.

    My introduction to semi auto pistols was (my brother’s) USP 40. Other pistols that I handled over time felt snappier or ‘less than’.... struggled with a cheaply made 1911 and then a glock 45 before buying my first HK. The first time I handled an MP5, I just looked down, shook my head and thought ‘I must own one of these!’ God help me if their long guns are as impressive!

    I shot my first set of HK handguns with a friend at the range back in '96, after that its been my mission to own HK products. The feel, the mechanics, the accuracy with minimal adjustment (or maybe I'm just a good shot). While I do own other "G" pistols HK is my go to preference. Now I'm looking forward to my first HK long gun purchase.
    I'm not cool enough to have a signature.
