    The .40 carries a little smaller. Either one a great pick. The .40 can also be converted to .357 is the mood ever struck.

    The .40 will have a bit more of a "snap" when fired . . . the .45 will "push" backward more when fired. I prefer the .45 greatly -- that's why it is one of my primary carry guns!

    Shoot straight!

    It depends on what caliber you shoot best, but I think the HK45c is the one to get if your going with a .45. I have the USPc 40 LEM - it's a little smaller than the USPc 45 and the same size as the USPc 9, but was built from the ground up for the 40 S&W. The USPc 40 also gives you the ability to acquire drop in barrels for .357 Sig...

    Get the .45, you'll be happier...bigger holes, less kick, more punch...

    Both are good

    I have the USP 40c and the full size USP 45. I bought the USP 40c about 4 years ago and have been very happy with it. But I am sure the USP 45c would be equally good. It comes down to your caliber and magazine capacity preference more than anything. The 40 will give you 13 rounds in the gun compared to 9 rounds for the 45, if that is important to you.

    Overall I have found the USP 40c to be reliable, accurate and easy to conceal.
