The HK USP platform is a very good gun. The barrels are dead tough. The bore sits a bit higher in relation to your hand and muzzle flip is more pronounced than with the Glock. I have personally witnessed a squib load cleared by the next bullet. HK can certainly make a barrel.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

I'm going today to try one out. And hopefully if they have it try a glock 30sf. I have been stuck on an hk since I seen the military channel. Kind of why I bought the M9. But I sold the M9 because I didn't like it as much as my sig. That's why I really want to shoot the hk before I buy. Don't want to throw money away.
Seriously. Which is better. The usp or hk45 ???????
I'm presently shooting 6 Glocks and 1 H&K. There is a reason for that. I've found that H&K is way over priced for what you get in a Polymer framed pistol, which isn't a hell of a lot with H&K. The magazines are outrageously expensive, the magazine release is poorly designed, and can easily pinch your fingers. And to be quite honest about it, it doesn't do anything better than a Glock can, except contain more parts and cost a lot more.
On the plus side is it has a nice large trigger guard, easily acquired sights, and a good trigger. I bought mine because I wanted to see first hand what all the hoopla was about concerning H&K handguns. The gun is OK, but I doubt I'll be buying another. There are simply better guns avaliable at much better prices that represent a higher degree of value, than what the Elves in the Black Forest are coming up with these days.
I personally like glocks over hk they are more economical accurate out of the box and reliable as f*** great carry gun. Has a great feel to it and abundance of accessories to make it your own. It's like a funny saying kimber the gun you show your friends, Glock the gun you show your enemy. : )
