I'm in the process of selling my Kimber (Custom Eclipse II). The Kimber turned out to be a $1000 mistake. It will soon be behind me. I may be confirming the obvious here, but my goal is to take the funds from my Kimber sale and use it to buy something that 1) has high capacity 2) is dependable 3) I can possibly carry and 4) great for home protection. The #22 seems to fit all 4 criterions. So why am I even asking, right? Here is my dilemma... besides being anal... I own a Glock 36 and have had 2 smoke stacks (out of about 500 - 600 rounds through it). My Springfield XD40 and HK USP Compact (9mm) never had a hiccup. The HK probably has 1100 rounds through it while the XD40 has about 300 through it. The Kimber is gone because... let's just say I could never trust it. While I really want the #22, wouldn't it be worthwhile for me to go with what has worked for me personally and get the HK USP in a .40? I'm drawn to the #22 because of the 15 + 1. If the HK USP 40 was 15 + 1, I think I'd have a better idea of what to do. Any similar dilemmas, opinions and / or experiences out there?
