USP .40 and a HK .40? I tell ya, can't find a finer weapon in .40, IMHO. I checked them all out, or so I thought back in 97 when I had a home invasion and my then wife had an epiphany that a gun might not be a bad thing in the house. I looked at a Colt M1911A1 first. The slide was rough to work, got stuck half way out of battery and the GS clerk used a hammer to smack it back in! That turned me off 1911's. (little did I know!!!!!). I looked at and fired a s**tload of guns, 9mm, .38, .357, .45, 10mm even a Desert Eagle .50. I bought the USP. My first pistol. Then I discovered better 1911 about 10 years later. Got divorced, life changed, I was alone again, I could start my hobby. Along comes that Springer and the rest is history!!
