Hello to all. I live in France and would be interested in making contacts with other HKPRO members in Europe. Also, if anyone is aware of HK related events in Europe, it would be great to post them in this sub-forum so others can be aware.

Hello, ello, ello, ello, ello

Wow there seems to be quite an echo in here. I want to thank straightgrain for creating this space for International HKPRO members. But I'm wondering if there is anybody out there.

It would be nice to set up a meeting of HKPRO members here in Europe, or perhaps national events would make it easier to come to an event with your gun(s).

Guten Tag. You don't happen to be in Oberndorf by any chance?

Bonjour, monsieur! I live a few hundred km north of Oberndorf. But I came very close to Oberndorf when I drove to Alsace for a paragliding course last spring. And I'm interested in visiting the factory.

It would be interesting to visit the factory. Do you know if they do tours? The two HKs that I have bought both came from Germany. Within the EU it's not hard to import a weapon from another EU country. The problem is getting the permit here in France.

I would like to eventually get a MR308 and MR223, but the bank account is empty at the moment after buying 2 HK .45 pistols. I'm afraid my "friends" who own guns is pretty much limited to the people in my shooting club and I don't know anyone there who has a MR223. Sorry.

Hello from another German ... or to be more precise from a Prussian lol

As far as I know HK did factory tours for shooting clubs in the past but they don't do them anymore due to bad press. Possibly we could convince them that tours for HKPro members wont affect their press ... at least this idea would provide something like hope for us zivis ;)

Hello from France !

I shoot in Paris and Ile de France clubs, and I plan to get an HK gun (probably USP .45).
I hope to share info/advice about HK and meet interesting contacts with any HKPro members in Europe.

Welcome freethx. There is currently an HK USP .45 for sale on PAAF2. We spent 8 years in Les Yvelines near Versailles. Now we are in the south, near Carcassone. If you are looking for a place for vacation, we have a gite and you could shoot at my club.

How? How were you able to get the two HK45? In order to have one - maybe in March - I had to ask to a shop to get one for me in the USA. Will take months.
How did you get yours, if I may ask?

BTW I am from Texas, live in Rome (IT) and currently am writing from San Diego :44:

I bought them used. I found them both in Germany. If you are in Italy (when you go back), there is an excellent site for used guns (including HKs) here. I saw a like new MR308 on this site for 2200 euros.

Merci. So you imported them from Germany, got it. Oh yeah, I know armiusate (thanks). That's actually where I found my MR223 - brand new, 2012 version, 14.5 inch barrel, lovely!

You'll never find an HK45 on armiusate, however. I think the only HK45s in the world available to civilians are in fact, in Germany and the USA.
The shop I ordered mine from will import one from the US in fact, and I believe it is US made vs Germany made. Basically same thing...

Curious on how to find one in Germany and import it?
