    just put a deposit on a usp 40. variant 1. any happy or unhappy owners? paticular ammo that doesn't play well? second and third opinions are a good thing.

    I have both the USP 9mm and 45ACP compact models, Var 1--they are my favorite pistols, never had either one malfunction. Don't have the 40S&W, but expect it is just as good. No better pistols made anywhere.

    thanks for the owner's review, missle. i put more stock in someone who owns one, than a magazine review.

    You're welcome--I'm saving up for a HK45 fullsize to go with my compacts. I'd love to have a P30 V3 some day also. And I wish they made a compact .380...

    I have a USP Tactical .45 and like it just fine.

    I've carried a P-2000 on duty for the past 5 years. Good weapon but nothing to shout about in my opinion. I'm just not that impressed with it, at least not over many others. The magazine release took a little to get used to with the push down rather than push in. Don't get me wrong it's a good weapon but I would rather have a Smith or Glock myself.

    I have owned a couple of them and they're good solid guns. I'd never pay the new price for one though...

    At about $800 they're a lot less than many name brand 1911s--not saying they're better or anything, but arguments could be made--it all comes down to personal preference. For me, the USP/HK45 V1 has the best decocker/safety of any gun I've ever shot, and has been the most reliable and accurate DA pistol I've owned. I will admit that I don't like the mag release, but I've gotten use to it.

    No slight against HKs intended but I just can't see ANY polymer gun selling for the price of a new HK. They are very accurate and reliable and for the right price (or trade) I'd get another...

    I have a P2000 and a P2000SK both with the LEM trigger and I have a P7M8 too. HK makes OUTSTANDING guns that are worth every penny I had to lay out for them.

    The P2000(s) are 40S&W and will digest ANY ammo I put through them reliably and stupidly accurate. I normally run Winchester White Box bulk ammo 165gr. FMJ Target for training and I carry Federal 155gr HPs.

    used to have a USP in 45acp. didnt like the feel. it felt too big for the light weight of the gun. it wasnt outstanding as far as accuracy went but it never failed to fir never had any fte or ftf. my biggest gripe was everything was just a bit out of reach in all the wrong ways. bad ergonomics. i have medium large hands and no trouble with desert eagl controls.

    just my opinion.
