    lots of character in person. All the lines of the slide are shiny. Doesn't bother me, since it isn't rusting. The HE finish sure is tough.

    I doctored it up a little, but I am guessing thats a B&W pic right? You can see the holster wear on the USP now. You should be carring that Champion more

    just got the Champion to replace the Taurus PT 140 I Kb'ed. The Champion will be my summer carry piece. And the USP has been with me since '93. Thanks for the retouch ya still can't tell but the frame is a dark O.D. green .

    I like the worn look, makes it look like you have worn it since 93'. How much powder do ya got through the USP?

    At a guess, probably more than 5,000 rnds. I know I have run over 1,000 rnds of reloaded ammo thru it, but didn't start loading till 03 or so. So the 5,000 probably is on the low side. I really like the USP for it's all weather finish. Works great camping, kayaking or other outdoor harsh weather environments.

    Tough guns Rocky - obviously served you well.

    As Bud says - the HK finish and Gaston's Tennifer - have to be about the most durable finishes around.

    I have been eyeing the champion for my next purchase. Would love to hear a range report on it when you get a chance.

    Had it out twice so far. Only about 50 rnds due to the cold weather we have had. Sights were a bit to the left for me, but the recoil was very managable. Also the trigger pull was decent, but not too light. So far I am happy with it. Will give afull report once I get some HP's and a few more rounds thru it.

    Looking forward to it Rocky. One other question. What finish is on it? Looks gray and white on my monitor.

    I have the SA Champion. So far so good. Shot a little left for me until I got used to the trigger.

    Mine did the same thing. I adjusted by using the first joint of my trigger finger instead of the pad, that seemed to pull things back to the right. At the time I assumed it was the short trigger on the SA as the stock long triggers on my Colts never seemed to do that. My Champion is long gone now but I still have the Milt Sparks Watch Six for it should I ever decide to replace it (though now I'm thinking a Milspec will be the next gun to follow me home).
