    Who cares what socom uses or used? Itís the Indian, not the arrow.


    And the G19 is the most prolific sidearm within special operations if it matters.

    Just a suggestion for you to consider.
    I got an expert for cheap and couldn't be happier.

    ^^ Your points of practicality are hard to disagree with. Too bad yours hasn't been reliable. Of the PPKs I have run across from the 1930s, 1960s and one PPK/S from the early 70s, they have all been stellar shooters..
    Even if it was reliable, I probably wouldn't carry it for the other reasons. When I first got it, it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in decades. I've worked on it for a few hours or so and it is definitely operated better, but it's still not there. There are other guns I have that I've never had a problem with.

    I have always been enamored with the Welrod--- the B&T version is ridiculously quiet!!!

    Absolutely! Don't know any better words to describe HK addiction. I've used those words 20 times in the last past 3+ years to calm myself.

Hell, the longer you collect the worse it gets. I had to hunt a taupe one down for no other reason than than the fact that there are only 500 of them and I wanted one. Not because they do anything that the black ones won't. It's cool, I wanted it, I can afford it. Those are the three key principles in firearm collecting, LoL.

    Itís funny, thatís the go to...Ēyou canít afford it so youíre jealousĒ.

    Iím on a dedicated HK forum. I can afford one. Yet I do not have one. Why? I have no desire to have an $1800 paperweight. Iím not a collector, Iím a shooter.

    No, the price yo admission isnít the barrier. But that reminds me of the time I won a precision rifle match. One gifted individual stated the only reason I won was because of my $10,000 rifle. So the next month I showed up with an $800 rifle and won.

    There really isn’t a better suppressor platform out there. And yes, if you really love H&K, you wouldn’t be asking “is it worth it.”

    This just goes back to what I said, the mission drives the gear train...However, there is more than enough information from former members of these organizations, that suggests that the MK23 simply isnít used very often, if at all. Whether or not anyone wants to accept that, is up to them, In his book ďNo easy dayĒ author Mark Owen shows pics of his weapons locker, the pistol he used was a HK45CT, So take it for what itís worth..
