I have both a glock 19 and an hk 2000. After shooting both, imo, they are both are very accurate and are good ccw pistols if you have the right holster set up. The glock seemed to carry more comfortable for IWB carry but the hk is a damn fine pistol and the hk trigger was nice. See if you can shoot both to see what you like better. The extra money for the hk is worth it, at least for me. Either way you wont go wrong. Good luck.

Actually the USP was built around the .40, then upsized to the 45acp in 92 for US socom operations.

My mistake, I knew the USP was designed around a cartridge that started with a "4". In any event, it's still larger than a Glock 19 in every dimension except slide width, weighs almost as much unloaded as a fully loaded Glock, and holds the same number of rounds.

No prob, didn't mean to seem like a knit pick. Usp's in 40-45 fit the platform, as for the 9mm usp I wouldn't Edc one, but then again I wouldnt (if I had another,, larger option ) EDC a. 9mm,,,, but that's a whole other thread in itself....

It really depends on what you do with it. Are you going to reload for it at any time? Are you going to use hard cast bullets or any non jacketed bullets? If you do any of this with a glock you will blow it up after some time. Unless you buy an aftermarket barrel. (I just learned this. So I wonted to use it. Lol)

Glock and H&K are not even on the same level of quality. It's like comparing a aluminum Jon boat to a contender. But on the same note both have there advantages over the other. It just all depends on what you are going to do with it.

For the simple fact that HK's customer service is some of he worst in the industry and Glock's is quite good, for no other reason I would suggest the Glock.

I wouldn't know about their CS, as I ve NEVER had a single issue that would need cs,, seems like the glock boys must be on the phone quite a bit because I've heard this point trying to be made several times,,,, hmmm.......

Glad I'm not the only one who thought that was an odd claim.

Everyone makes a bad pistol now and again, but I'm really hoping the gun I buy doesn't require me to call customer service, ever. Horrible selling point.

Could that be there are possibly far more Glocks in circulation than HKs??
