Thank you, I love my HK Expert. My first handgun as well. I thought about getting the Mark 23, but it was almost a grand more. I got that for like 1325, and the 23 was over 2k. I just got a baby glock nine the 26, I will post a new pic of shortly. Great eyes spotting the Expert by the way. Well done. A lot of people just think it's the standard HK.
