    HK just had to recall their G36 because they were failing soldiers in accuracy. If they can’t make a gun that they have produced for some time hold up then I have no interest in buying anything else they make because I don’t have faith in their product after witnessing the failure of one of their best rifles. Sig did the same thing with one of their new rifles. I watch a professional shooter try to get it to even fire consistenly and it was a impossible. You guys never have anything bad to say about anything and I can’t imagine that in 2015 we have perfected anything. Then your boy is talking about the holster “maybe the retention screws can be backed out”. You literally have it in your hands, Genius. You can’t try on camera and help us out? You reviews honestly just seem like ads for guns so HK will pay you any mind. If your really good at your job then gun companyies will come to and beg to review they’re guns because you know people will take them seriously. This man is having to grip the hell out of the gun, I can see he is anticipating the shot, and he has to re-settle his hands after every shot. It take him a considerable amount of time to get his barrel back on point where a 9mm would be easier to reset. People $hit on the 9mm but what happens when you need 2 shots to hit your target and they only need one. Under duress for you life can you bank on hitting your target the first shot? You’re a GD liar or egomaniac to say yes.

      Good evening,
      Mark, I have been shooting for about a half hour. Please never shoot once, twice or you will meet your maker, in a stop the threat scenario. Mozambique triple tap is your best method. If you need to use deadly force, use it wisely and with justification. Please stop watching movies and/or reading blogs etc.. which tell[s] you one round is enough. If you need to use deadly force be it a 9mm or [a real round] .45 ACP, shoot to stop and not to do whatever your single round will do[it won’t happen]. I lied I have been shooting for over a half an hour.. Be safe my friend.. Please understand the legalities of a Good Shoot..

        In Texas if you shoot an attacker in the head, even in the most clear-cut self defense scenario, you will be arrested charged with, and tried for murder. So the Mozambique triple tap is very bad advice. If you don’t shoot a .45 ACP well try a .357 sig.recoil is very manageable and it is slightly more powerful than the 125 gr .357 revolver round: the all time one shot stopper according to Evan Marshall’s research.
