I must start by admitting that the HK45 and HK45C are on my buy list for next year.
Having said this I must also say that I have been a disappointed by HK's recent offerings because they lack a certain elegance that typified some of their older offerings, for example, the P7.
My preference for HK's NEXT handgun would be a .45 that is specifically designed for concealed carry. It would have the following characteristics:
1. it would be as LIGHT as possible;
2. it would be easily concealed because it would be as slim and as short as possible;
3. it would have all corners and edges dehorned and NO accessory rail;
4. it would have NO finger bumps;
5. it would use a small cap (short) magazine for in the weapon and a larger cap magazine for the carrier; and
6. it would have high quality sights, perhaps something like the 24/7 express sights. (Some of us are getting older!)
It would be the perfect "always have on hand" weapon, and, best of all, it would be an HK, not a Kahr PM45.
I should also admit that while my preferred concealed carry firearm is my USPC .45, I probably carry my Kahr PM9 more frequently just because of its sheer convenience. But its a Kahr........
What would you like to see HK offer?

It's been said many times and it is a pitty too, but HK only makes firearms to Military, Fed, and LE contract needs now days. It's ahame it's like that, but you can't blame them.
A P30L in .40sw
A 5" HK10 (HK45 in 10mm w/ longer barrel/slide)
I'd like to see a refined MK23.
MP7 in both pistol & rifle (SBR) configurations
Something truly Hk/unique....and not so generic as the latest offerings.
