To me, the full size feels
thinner. The only explanation I can come up with for that is the different contour of the grip and where my hand sits on the gun. I guess it's a individual thing. When I first looked at the HK 45 I didn't think I would like the grip and that it would be too big for me. Man was I wrong! The HK 45 became my daily carry very rapidly following my first few range sessions with it.
For me to switch away from my prized and beloved 229 .40 Sig, that says alot!
I'm with ya on the p229. Ive had one in 357sig for a long time. Wouldn't even consider another make. Until these damn hk's. Bought a p30 and p2000. Now my 229 sits lonely in the safe. I think about taking her out and carrying her, but cant bring myself to part with my hk's for the day. Is that crazy?
