I would like you guys' advice on where to buy an HK45C tactical. Preferably I'd like to buy from a place that sells a lot of them (to increase the chances of getting one manufactured in 2010 or later).
I wouldn't mind having one from 2010 or later. For purely subjective reasons, I would just prefer to have a "fresh" gun.
It looks like that seller is out of stock. It seems like this gun is out of stock almost everywhere.
I'm plan on getting a CHL shortly and using my P2000sk for carrying and the HK45CT for house protection/range. Would a Benelli M4 be more practical for house protection? They seem slightly less difficult to acquire.
My point is that a factory "Tactical" model did not exist until late last year. I was able to acquire an HK45C made in Germany from 2009, and it runs like a champ; no worries on guns that are older, as long as they have not been on display. Put in your request, and wait would be my advice.
As long as they allow individuals to buy from them directly. You can try Duck Creek Armory ([email protected]) in Davenport, IA. That is where I bought mine about a week ago. Good luck. BTW, you should be able to get a new date coded unit, my 45CT is a BB date code, 2011.
Do you have a dog? If the dog attacks, and you have a shotgun with buckshot (most likely), you're going to hit the dog. Can you deal with that mentally and financially?
Do you have kids or a spouse? Can you manipulate a shotgun with one hand, whilst securing little ones or your significant other? That shot's going to suck one handed: don't miss.
Do you have oversized hallways and entryways? Clearing a building with a 12" barrel can be difficult. Now imagine with 18.5". Corners, doors, etc. are going to be really sh*tty, especially under pressure.
I want an M4. But, not for home defense. Just, weigh your consequences: a shotgun MAY be what you need. But, for me? A handgun will always trump shotgun or rifle.
No kids or pets and I live in a somewhat open town home. I'm afraid the HK45CT would put a round through my wall and into the neighbors section of the building after going through the intruder. M4 with birdshot may be less prone to this. I dunno though. An M4 Entry model (14" barrel) may also help to alleviate the reduced maneuverability associated with the 18.5" version. I will end up getting both the M4 and HK45CT (a year between each purchase I'm guessing). Its really a matter of which one I should get first and ease of purchasing. Opinions?
Gordon Miller's website hkspecialist claims to have 2 HK45 CTs in stock. The Variant 1 is $1145 and the variant 3 is $1199. Don't know how frequently he updates it though. I believe the OMG!!!Navy!!!SEALs use the V3, if it makes any difference to you.
