How about a picture thread of 'Full Size/Compact Autos' ???
I'll start it off with the LCP taking center stage....

No more guns for me. This is getting ridiculous. I don't even want to think what I paid for this latest toy.

My new H&K 45 compact with LEM trigger, Uncle Mike's slip on grip and a LH AKJ Concealco IWB holster:

Mike you sound like my wife. "You spend HOW much for that thing?!!!"

My H&K45c was specially outfitted with the newest law enforcement modification trigger (LEM) currently not sold in shops in the US - only Variant 1 models (sa/da with a safety lever for righties are available). Mine was a special order and equipped in Germany before arriving on my dealer's doorstep. I had to wait 6 weeks for delivery. The LEM is a series of unique trigger parts created specifically (sayeth HK) to improve the quality and reduce the weight of the double-action only trigger pull in HK pistols. With these parts installed, the HK45 pistol can be fired like a standard DAO pistol where every round is fired by simply pulling the trigger fully rearward with the hammer starting at the forward position. In my gun, there is no external decocking or safety levers present or reqjired, though they are available as an option. The DAO tigger breaks at 4.5-5 lbs. Plenty good for carry. The nice thing about HK's is that the triggers can be changed/converted to differnt variants by simply swapping out parts, e.g., safeties, docockers, etc. So in essence, you are not locked into any one variant.

Are H&K's worth the hefty price they demand? Probably not to be honest. To a large extent we are paying the price for a strong Euro and a weak dollar (although that's reversed a little bit in recent weeks). The LEM does take some getting used to - I fired 200 rounds today. Quite a bit of pre-travel but a very quick reset.

That is a sweet HK45. I've got both my HK's (duty usp 40 and p2000sk 40) with the LEM trigger. No muss, no fuss just pull the trigger. In no time, you'll get used to the long first pull, then short reset shooting (like SA).

Spot on Phil. That was what drove me to the LEM versus another HK decocker (variant 3) or variant 1 safety lever on the side, carry in condition 1. I have to admit that the LEM does take some getting used to and I am not there yet. But I reloaded over a thousand rounds while waiting for for the gun so it won't be for lack of trying. :)
