    H&K HK45 vs H&K USP 45? help me decide

    I am thinking about another addition. I would like your opinions on the H&K USP 45 vs the HK45 ( not the compact version).
    What other brands have a similar type model that you would consider? Please let me know an approx. round count on yours. New or used? Seems like the used price is not much less than the brand new ones.

    HK45. Way better ergonomics, highly accurate, reliable as a hammer.

    I think all three are good platforms. I had a USPc in 40 for a while and it was a pretty nice. FN makes good stuff too.
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Leaning towards the HK45 found a used one that looks real clean. Maybe my solution

    The USPs tend to run a little less in terms of cost for the gun, I agree that the HK45 feels better in the hand and has some other little improvements, but the cost of that is a 10rd mag instead of a 12rd mag. The HK45 uses some different parts than the USP. HK aftermarket support is almost non-existent, and it's even less so for the HK45 but it's getting better.

    I will suggest though, that if you're looking to carry the thing, a USPC-45 or Hk45C might be the better choice. The HK45 is a pretty good sized gun.

    I got a great deal on my HK45 (Friend in need), gun and 9 magazines + Milt Sparks VMII for $1K, I have put about 3K through the gun in the year that I've had it and it's never skipped a beat.

    Went to Cabelas today. They got a sale and there is $75.00 off H&Ks. they open at 9:00AM I pull in at ten after. The gun counter is full 3 guys deep all the way down. There was a line of five guys at the computers for the paperwork. I did not want to wait around. I will have to go back.
    maybe I will attend the Gun Show this weekend. I wanted to use up some of my points.

    Hind sight 20/20 I shouldn't have bought my full size USP 45. My hands are too small for the grip. On that thought, I will NEVER sell it due to my fact that I can drive tacks all day long. It overwhelmingly compensates for my shooting style. I even carry it IWB (5'8" 185). My most accurate and easy shooting handgun. Love it....

    Have been CCW with my USP for over ten years now, this thing is accurate, and has never failed to feed anything I have thrown at it, and that is a heap of ammo. "Reliable as a hammer" more so.
