My wife has small hands as well. But if the grip is the same just shorter the compact won't help. Oh well if she decides she want mine I'll just have to get me a tactical.

MDW, all joking aside, start hitting the gunstores and see what fits her hand the best. if really leaning towards the H&K brand, look to see what alternatives they offer in something with a thinner grip. see if they offer slimmer grip panels that can aid her grip on them.

Over the next couple of weeks I'll have her fire quite a few and look at others. I'm not a big fan of striker fired pistols which reduces the options. At 64 I'm kind of a traditional guy. In the end it's up to her. It's for her home defense when I'm traveling which is often.

Picked the 45c up today. To the range on Thursday. Will see if she likes it. Pick the 45 up in 30 days.

Great decison - The USP line has larger controls positioned like 1911 vs the new HK line. In addiiton, the decocker is frame mounted on the USP vs frame mounted on HK line. Other than that, the newer HK line has superior ergos.

In general, shorter barrels will always have better balance.

Almost a year later, are you happy w purchase ?

I'm happy with all three. The USP 45. The HK 45 & the 45c. My wife shoots the c and likes it a lot. She creams the bullseye with it. I also have a Kimber Custom II CDP and a Colt Commander xse.

Always nice to have a Colt or two. I've got the Officers & Combat Cmdr. I was trying to recall which was more accurate - never shot all four at one range session.

Wish HK went w 5" barrel on full size USP. While I enjoy shooting the 45C - calling it a "Compact" - is kind of an inside joke. My admiration for it went up when the starting makeing 10 rd clips.

Problem w HK is lack of aftermarket support. Only 1 fiber optic sight made for the competition model. I added it to both of my guns - also adj sight. Old eyes need help.
