Another help me decide thread


December 22, 2006, 07:30 PM
So I have been saving up a little $ for a new toy and just when I thought I found it another idea hit me and now I am at a loss as to what to do. First let me say I am a hypocrite. I have knocked Hk to no end, and have slammed pistol caliber carbines like nobodys business. Well the other day I was at the local range/gun shop and as I was checking out a lane I noticed a new gun among the rentals......a Hk USC :what: . Well I just had to give it a try to see what the buzz was all about so 100 rounds of .45acp later I was in love. It is indeed a fine weapon, so much so I can look past the gray thumbhole stock, and 10 round mag. They have 5 in stock for sale but at $1,600 it isnt an impulse buy. I have a few pistols in .45 in my collection already and have been thinking I really need something in 9mm as I have none at the moment. My thoughts were this for $1600 I could buy a USC or a Beretta CX4 with a M9 to go along with it. Plus a few spare mags, and a butt load of 9mm. I like the CX4, and have had an M9 in the past but traded it as it wasnt the gun for me at the moment. These will be toys and not working guns. What to do what to do? The Hk has collector value for sure and I have looked into conversions for it to take 30round M3 mags which are available, but a pair of Berettas sounds nice as well :banghead: help me decide please.

Buy two Glock 17s or 19s, since you have $1600 to spare. You'll have cash left over for ammo.

Guns!!!! Who needs guns!!!!
(See CountGlockula post) What a couple of bad boyz that post has. With a gun like that. Who needs 'em. Forget about buying extra ammo!!! Use the extra money to take the girl out.

Glockula that thought has crossed my mind but I wanted to add some more diversity to my collection and I already have three Glocks. Plus now the idea of a pistol caliber carbine appeals to me with all the fun of a rifle without the cost of rifle ammo. Im really leaning towards the Hk but its a lot of $ for what you get. Perhaps I just need to buy more lotto tickets instead ;) .

I really doubt any of you would want to see me in a pink bra anyway.

LOL! Go for the HK then. And make sure you show us some pictures!!!

You'll hate the suggestion, but my Hi-Point 9mm carbine has always been extremely reliable and accurate. Hideous, but it gets the job done and then some. Cons are capacity and aesthetics.

Past that I like the idea of getting the next best thing quality-wise, and either a spare pistol to go with it or a few thousand rounds of ammunition.

It sounds like you really want the USC. Get some good optics while you're at it.

Think "twofer". For $1600 you can get a CPO Sig P226 and P220 and ammo. The P226 could be a 9mm or for a little extra a .357Sig with and an extra .40 S&W barrel. That'd be a "threefer." Go for quality PLUS quantity.

Quantity has a quality of its own.

i had the $1600 to spend it would be the hk in a heart beat!:D
