    Ok i am looking to get a gun in the next few months. Now I know it really all depends on how the gun feels in your hands and stuff but i just want WMD opinion on these 2 guns

    Springfield XD SC .40
    HK P2000sk .40

    If you had a choice which one would you pick.

    I plan to carry it concealed and price isnt an issue

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    I realize that HK is quite a bit more expensive but there has to be a good reason for it :dunno: plus i like the whole idea of the LEM trigger. Well at least it sounds nice on paper

    Not really but HK vs XD kind of hard not to pick the HK on that one, theres plenty of other guns I would of recomended the XD over but this isnt one of them.

    "Oh snap, its $900, it has to be good. "


    "umm.. obviously its better than a glock, its twice as much :hay:"

    I wasnt implying that at all because i know a caddilac is more expensive than a honda but the honda will last twice as long. But i really like the looks of the HK but i also like the xd i think it will all come down to which feels better when i shoot it

    Is this poll some sort of joke? HK and it's not even close, I can't believe there are actually 9 people on here who voted for an XD over an HK, especially when the guy clearly stated that price is not an issue. If price isn't an issue, then you buy the HK.

    Yes, but the fact that you have to buy rust removal in bulk from Costco offsets any difference in price.

    :mamoru:

    And he said price wasn't an issue, therefore it would be dumb not to buy the HK,

    They fixed the rust issue. Explain what exactly makes HKs worth $200-$300 more? Just because I can afford it doesn't mean I'm going to get an H2 over a Jeep.

    fuck, even a jeep liberty is better than an H2 :mamoru2:

    and yeah, with the melonite, rust shouldnt be a problem.. (even though it doesnt hold a candle to tenifer :o )

    or just get a bi-tone :hsughno:

    I wouldn't get a POS H2 over a Jeep either :mamoru:.

    What makes them better? First of all, if you have to ask a question like that then it's very obvious you've never shot one. Battle proven reliability, the type of quality that you would expect from an $800 pistol, they were the ORIGINAL in polymer pistols, they don't come from a 3rd world country, fit and finish that is second to none, they don't feel "frail" in your hand like some other polymer pistols which will remain nameless, the list goes on.

    Go shoot one and you'll very easily be able to see why someone would pay that much for a pistol.

    If you're just buying a range gun, then buy whatever you want, but if you're buying a gun that you're going to carry and may one day have to use to defend your life, why would you sacrifice quality, reliability, and a battle hardened reputation just to save a few hundred bucks?

    I bought a Sig a few days ago and I also considered an HK USP Compact, however I ultimately decided against it for two reasons, ergonomically it did not feel as good in my hand as the Sig, and number two which is the biggest reason, HK is alienating their civilian market very much like what Colt is doing, also customer service and all things related to it is virtually non-existant.

    i own an HK, and i have shot multiple XDs. HK hands fuckin down. i'm not just being a sackrider, but just by handling the two, the HK feels and looks better made than the XD. no offense, but the XD has so many cheap features to it, while the HK is just right down to business. i could see choosing the XD over the HK if price was a factor, but since it appears not to be, why in the fuck would anyone choose the XD?
