I have to object to the comment about the HP .40 being a sucky pistol. I have one and it has performed very well. While it is heavier than the standard 9mm HP, the weight difference is more than made up for by the additional power factor of the .40 caliber round.
.40 HP did not sell because they were expensive compared to other .40 caliber pistols, and it did not help that the problems with the initial production run were kept alive even after the issues were solved.
I would take a .40 HP any day over a plastic Glock in .40!
