    20 Years ago people spoke poorly about Glocks like he did about the HP's.

    When you pointing a Gun at a thug he doesn't care how much you spent, so using money and cost as a quality factor in a firearm is silly and I'll be happy to sell you any of my HP's for 8 times what they cost to make you feel better.

    FYI went to a local gun show and the HP carbines were going for $349.00 here in Fl.

    Sorry, but after watching a few of this guy's videos on you tube, I opinionated he was an idiot.

    Of course that is my opinionated opinion. :D

    I guess I needed to state the reason for posting this. It was for the factory optics mount for all you gadget freaks.............;)

    Not sure of the cost but I doubt I would spend a bunch of money for optics on a HP pistol. HP's are good, affordable, reliable personal defense guns for the budget minded. For competitive shooting and hyper accuracy there are better choices than a HP
     
  11. Nobody questions mounting optics on a Glock, and from most reports the HP is just as accurate, and dependable.

    Unless I was a competitive shooter I would not mount any large sized or expensive optics on ANY handgun HP or otherwise. I would use my money for good quality optics for rifles or carbines...but that is just my opinion. Now a high quality Mahan site for a C9 would be a good investment but only if the stock plastic sites crapped out on you. Even then HP would replace the sites if you damaged the ones that came with the gun.

    Joey trigger, Mahan sights and TM grips are about as far as I would go.
    Optics are just........a tad too much.

  16. That would be a difficult carry holster, now race holster might be different.

    Personally if I went that route I would just mill off the sights and mount the reflex to the top of the slide. Then a modified fobus would do for a holster.

    Zamak is easy to mill compared to other metals, about like aluminum. A lighter spring might be needed because of the heavier slide though. I would prefer that a HP vender would supply a modified aluminum slide for the mounting. I believe alum is lighter than Zamak.

    Its great we can add this to our HP's, doesn't mean we have to .
    But for any old farts out there this is a nice add on.
     
  18. I don't see anything wrong with an optics package for the handguns. Not big on the scope but I like the idea of a red dot on the gun.

    And I think the camo pistol's pretty.

    I agree with this...options are nice to have even if it's not for everybody
