A poster at HKpro asked in a recent thread "why no HK handgun in 10mm?"

some of the better responses,

Because it won't sell. If there are 10 people who want the round there are another 50,000 who don't give a rip. Companies have tried it, lost, and tossed the idea.
HK focuses on military / LEO market, which has zero interest in 10MM.
There's no large scale market for it. 10mm is one of my favorite calibers for sheer semi-auto power but it's just not popular enough. ..and with HK, no military demand means no market.
