Forget cool factor, $$ and anything else other that which is better for a self- defense gun in the car.

Would you prefer a (semi-auto) SP5 HK or a Glock 9mm w 33 round mag?

Comparison is for guns as pictured other than optional sights to your preference.

No pistol looks cool with a 30 round mag. Period.
That said, a 30 round mag is too long and will get in the way.

If the long Glock mag will get in the way then the SP5 must really be too big for the car.

Depends... I would store a traditional pistol differently in a vehicle than I would a braced pistol. That being said, Iíd prefer the compactness of the Glock over shoving a 33 rounder in it. And if it is too long, what about the 24s?

I tend to have a handgun on me at all times... whether Iím in uniform and going to/coming from work or just on my hip while off duty. Only time I donít carry is when I leave the country... and as it sits now, Canada is closed. Stowing a Glock in my truck really isnít beneficial... unless I want an extra handgun for whatever reason (give to someone when they are unarmed, etc). I have been putting my AR pistol in my truck, but if Iím running out lately with the stay at home situation (grabbing milk or food)... I wonít take it. Too cold up here, as batteries die when left in the truck. Add in the fact that the range has been covered in snow, I really havenít been able to zero the pistol well enough that I would not pull it unless it was on par with North Hollywood.

I carry a Glock 17 with a MagPul 27 rounder as my reload. So, I guess that answers that.

I went with the MagPul mag as they seem to work 100%. I havent found that to be the case with the half dozen or so factory 33 rounders I have.

The biggest advantage I see with the Glock is, I can jump out of the car/truck and easily walk around without drawing any attention to myself. Dont see that happening with the HK. Not that you cant hide it, its just harder in everyday street clothes.

Glock for me. Its pretty easy to swap out a 17 rounder for the 33 rounder. AR, AK pistols are unwieldy in a vehicle especially if you're driving and not a passenger.

I own three 33rd 9mm Glock branded magazines. I would never use them for self defense. They are not practical.

I dont understand some of the comments so far.

What is the purpose of this gun? Are you worried about getting caught in another Rodney King riot?
Are you planning to shoot while driving? Really? Shoot at what, and how is 30 rds of 9mm going to help?

Just to add an alternative view, you are driving a 3-4,000 lb vehicle, thats a lot bigger and more powwrful than any handgun.
Nothing wrong with your carry weapon (perhaps a backup) and perhaps a high capacity rifle.

But the biggest, most dangerous weapon under your control is your vehicle. Keep your gas tank filled, your tires in good shape, and learn to drive.

Btw, I used to drive to work on Crenshaw Bld from 1989-1992.

Neither
For the reasons pointed out, the 30 round stick is just that
A 9mm PCC is anemic

I carry a Galil Ace as my Truck gun and a FNX 15 round 45 ACP just in case
If I am going to go there, I want to end it decisively

Pistol. As others have said, easier to wield in confined spaces, easier to conceal if you have to get out of the car with it. If you want to have that night stick as your backup magazine, have at it. There is a stat somewhere about how many shots are exchanged in a typical altercation. I'm pretty sure it's less than 33.

No contest, 100 times out of 100 times, the Glock.

* Cheaper by 300% or more.
* Mags are widely available and inexpensive. And you don't even need 33 round mags. Normal mags are even cheaper.
* Easier to conceal, and handle. Big pistols are hard to shoot well and awkward.

With the costs savings you can buy more ammo, more mags, or deeply discounted stocks. Ford is at $5... just saying.

That HK is a total overpriced range toy novelty. I've got dozens of guns I'd pick over that even at the same price.

TITLE IS Misleading..
I read it and thought he was asking about what was best for STOPPING a car,
not carrying around in one?

Who cares what you are carrying in a car? Concealment is not an issue, weight is not an issue.
what matters is the SIZE Of the car you are in and how much room do you have to maneuver your choice of defense weapon.
If you drive around in a van you can have room to swing a rifle.
if you drive a Corvette, now, not so much room.

For STOPPING a car, you want a minimum of 7.62 caliber or heavier.

It's actually extremely relevant.

* You can stuff a Glock in the glovebox, center consol, or under your seat, or conceal it under a baseball cap in the passenger seat. You can't do any of that with an HK pistol, certainly not in the glove box or console, and if it's under the seat it's a slow draw. And it will be more conspicuous in the passenger seat and require a briefcase sized object to conceal.

* A Glock pistol holster is easily mounted under the steering wheel or between seat and console. Not so for an HK pistol.

* If you had to draw it and shoot and drive, the one-handed operation is far easier with a Glock.

* If you had to bail out of the car (accident, car jacking, traffic jam, etc.) a Glock can be concealed very easily but an HK pistol requires a larger garmet.

* And the most reliable way of stopping a car is to shoot the driver, who is generally extremely vulnerable and unprotected by anything much other than angular objects covering very small % of his body.

You stop a car by placing a 1/2 lb warhead inside the car and detonating it.
Works really well on anything lighter than a tank.

1/3 the price of a HK and just about as good in my opinion. A subgun has considerable advantage over a handgun. The only argument is it is unwieldy inside a car, but you should had your carry handgun anyway. A truck gun is when you need more.
