    Got a new 40 and I like it.

    I had just got my H&K USPc 45 last week and I fell in love with it. I wanted to try one in 40 so I got a USPc 40 to go along with it. It is just as nice as the 45 and it holds more bullets.I am thinking of making it my carry gun but I really like the 45 also.Both work well with the same holster. So far I have put 400 rounds down the tube and it is the most accurate 40 I have ever shot and as always with H&K's not a hicup.I am very pleased to say the least.

    Congrats on the new additions. ;-) I really like my .40 also.

    I'm glad you like your .40; its the one caliber that people either seem to love it or hate it, few if any in-betweens.

    People may disagree with me but I think the USP is a more durable pistol than my edc h&k p30. I have owned them both. The usp is one of my favorites.

    Congrats on your new addition. I've fired my friends USP .40c and it was a sweet shoot pistol.

    I love the .40 round! I don't find it "snappy" at all.

    Awesome set of pistols. You can't go wrong carrying either one. I like the .40 round, although I only have 1 pistol chambered in .40 I really like it and shoot it well. It's a XD40sc. HKs have a great reputation and the couple that I have held personally were very impressive weapons.

    I've noticed the .40 having more muzzle flip than other calibers, but it is certainly managable and once you are used to the weapon it is hardly noticable. The heavier projectile rounds in .40 seem to me to have a little less perceived muzzle flip than some of the lighter grain ones. Perhaps it is some sort of physics mass/velocity ratio thing...or it could just be my imagination. Either way, I like the .40 round.

    I am very happy with my .40 Glock 23. It is snappier than my G17 and G26 but it is accurate and not punishing. Love it.

    I have never really been a big fan of the 40 S&W Round. All the 40's that I have owned were not that accurate until this one. I am glad I gave the 40 another chance.

    I have fired the +p124gn 9 mm and I find them to be very close to a .40 in recoil I am a big fan of the 40 it penetrates good and hits hard and coming out of a hk is about as reliable as it gets.

    I have been very happy with this so far. But I still have been carrying my 45 Compact.

    I don't like to carry a gun until I'm VERY familiar with it. I traded for a Glock 36 last week and I've only got to put 100 rounds through it. I'm not carrying it until I have a chance to really get comfortable and dialed in with it. I'd like to tap the rear sight to the right a little bit, but from what I understand there is a pusher you should use to do that rather than tap it.
