    New pistol +Franken-Holster + New EDC thread.

    So here's what Ive got,

    H&K USP .40 full sized. Came with UTL, Jet funnel kit, 3 mags, LEM trigger up grade - And it's DAO.

    Shot 100 rounds through.. Groups very tight. No fails. Now for the downside, it was expensive!... I could have easily purchased two XD's ; Next... Holster selection, is HORRIBLE! No one carries anything in stock. So I made one.. (fit's any leather XD holster) almost perfectly.. So , I'll show a couple of that as well.





    Here's the every day carry, Minus the droid. (using it for pictures) the other phone is my work phone. The Knife for all you blade geeks.. It's a S&W HRT .

    Here's a couple of the franken -Holster I made.

    It's a Galco fletch. Front cut off, and smoothed out. Straps from an old belt, and some belt clips.. For IWB, or OWB wear.

    Any range results photos? Nice sidearm. The grip look aggressive, is it? Is that a partial hammer protruding from the back? is everything but the frame poly, like all the other components, are they steel?

    Sorry, lots of questions....oh, welcome!

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    I was shooting at some rifle zero targets ,However, I didnt bring them home. But on focused steady shots all the rounds were within a 2 inch square. On fast drawed shots.. I was dealing with about a 5 inch group .

    The texture on the grip feels comforable. I shot in the rain, with, and without gloves. I didnt notice any slip, or sliding on my grip.. I especially like the large trigger guard.. Easy to handle with winter gloves.

    Also, the Hammer is showing a little -Without a round chambered it's flush, almost unseen. the hammer is metal, the lower is poly. the slide is metal,much like a glock ,Except it also has a steel guide rod with a bomb proof spring/rod assembley.

    Only if they're Masochist's and love pain.

    That reminds me of the old joke about the masochist that was married to the sadist. The masochist kept saying "Beat Me" and the sadist always refused. A marriage made in heaven.

    I like your adapter. Its a clever way of converting an OWB to IWB. It never occurred to me, but it makes sense.

    If it turns out to not work as well as expected you may check out Tucker Gun Leather. They make some very nice IWB holsters for your gun, with or without the weapon light installed.

    Congratulations and welcome to the forum. I've always thought I'd like an H&K but the price is somewhat prohibitive, esp considering that my Ruger KP345 was only $450. Maybe someday it will be higher up the priority list.
