K Is For Kinder?

There’s little or no doubt that Heckler & Koch’s MP-5 series of submachine guns are some of the finest weapons on the planet, especially for urban work and for vehicle crews.

I had, however, always believed that the “K” in the compact variant, the MP5K, was for kurz (short) as opposed to kinder (children). 😉

K is for Kinder? I thought it was for For Kurtz. Oh well, she's training to achieve honorable peace in her time

Then again, given the size, weight, balance, and control of the MP5K, I really can’t think of any better weapon in this class for children’s training and use. H & K might want to think about changing their marketing. 😆

NOTE: The specific model of firearm the girl is using is the MP5K-PDW, distinguishable by its folder shoulder stock.
