For the past 8 years I've been carrying a G17 as a primary duty pistol. Off and on I would qualify (day and night) with my HK P7M8, but I usually just tote my G17 around and I never really had a P7M8 holster that worked well for me. Recently that changed. I bought a Blade-Tech holster as well as a Don Hume J.I.T. Slide 25 and qualified with the P7M8. All is well with world. I love my P7M8...............until I had to clean it. For the love of God they sure are complicated!!! There's something to be said about simplicity. Glock pistols sure are simple to operate AND clean. To me that's a HUGE bonus, and one that many folks don't often mention. I know I've taken their simplicity for granted, but I'm half tempted to pick up a G26 as my off duty pistol and keep the P7M8 in the safe.
