H&K makes the USP. Taurus makes the PT92. Nighthawk makes custom 1911's. Beretta makes the 92FS and M9.

Well exactly. USP is a great gun and I feel it's a better deal than a Nighthawk. I guess I made a mistake saying that the HK is just as good as a Nighthawk, but really, who pays near $3,000 for a pistol? I guess you get what you pay for, but I think a USP is definitely a great pistol at a better price. I mean what does a USP cost? I haven't seen them for any more than $1,000. I suppose it depends too. The Tactical version is a little more. MK23 is around $2,000 where I have been able to find it. How about an MK23 USP compared to a Nighthawk?

I guess I'd say a USP is more practical than a Nighthawk. In terms of if you can hit your target, I say it's just as good and I don't think most people will pay $3,000 as opposed to $1,000.

Obviously JD thinks a Nighthawk is worth the cost along with the other folks on this forum that have one (or more). Your whole post revolves around the price of the gun - which is just one factor. A Hi-Point will sling lead downrange and quite accurately - this must make it the "best" gun available using your criteria.

I'll use the same car analogy I've used before - a Kia and a BMW will both get you from point A to point B, the Kia is way cheaper, do folks that buy a BMW waste their money?

Actually owning and shooting the handguns discussed provides a bit of credibility for your opinions - anything else is just empty speculation. Unless I've owned it and spent some time with a gun in question - I just stay out of the advice business. Just having shot one, a range gun for example, isn't the same as owning - range guns are often poorly maintained and rarely cleaned...

I have owned a taurus pt92 in the past. It was brand new and I put about 2000 rnds through it. It was a fantastic pistol! It ate any ammo I tried and did it with amazing accuracy! Frame mounted safety was what I liked about it and you also can't complain bout 17+1 either. I would recommend this pistol.
