    Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

    I just haven't seen anything in the H&K line of recent manufacture that enthuses me.

    Sorry, it just doesn't float my boat.

    I see it as a very expensive glock.(and even they are overpriced)

    I'm not flaming your gun selection, just responding to your "BEST" claim.

    Are they good guns? Yes
    Are they overpriced? Hell yes
    Are they the BEST? Hell No

    I would love to own a G36,a UMP,or an MP5, but they are WAY to proud of their stuff for me to ever own anything made by them

    Lol me and my friend went out shooting our new tax refund guns a few weeks ago

    I got a Walther PPQ,ran like a dream... almost aims itself,I think I'd have to try to miss with it

    He got a HK Just compact .45,5-6 stovepipes before he finished the first box...

    OP sounds like spam/really bad attempt at advertising

    I stand corrected!

    Oh ok like I told the guy above me...I admit that I was a bit premature on the TITLE "THE BEST GUN EVER MADE"... and should have said "MY FAVORITE GUN, and ITS REALLY RELIABLE"...but you have to admit that they are some damn good weapons...

    Good gun non the less

    Thank you for your opinion, and I appreciated it .....I'll have to look into the PPQ, after what you said, it sounds like a awesome weapons system. Sorry your Friend had problems with his H&K...as far as the USP 45 goes, in my experience, it is a nail driver and never has had any problems while I have been shooting it...So hope he fairs better in the future.
    Oh and NOT SPAM=) but yes a little advertising of my YouTube channel... just spreading the word about the videos I do.

    The USP series are very accurate. Tough as nails barrels. Barrel sits too high in relation to the hand causing excessive muzzle flip. Mags can be inserted backwards under stress. Full size mags do not work in compact versions.

    Mine had a small spring break that kept the hammer from cocking. It is the first gun I have ever had to send in for repair and I rarely shot it. It was a nice gun and was very reliable and accurate plus had the 1911 controls. I traded it for a Glock.

    I have 2 H&K USP's one Elite and one Standard full size both 45 ACP.
    I've fired thousands of rounds through these handguns, without any problems at all.
    I've even tried to induce a malfunction by dragging through dirt mud so on.
    One thing that I like is the guns ability to be carried Sig style or if you like can be carried cocked and locked like venerable 1911.

    Had you read my post New Member From Northern California. on your thread in the Introduction section you would have seen the following request;

    We call it Condition 1, I'm not familiar with the trem "Sig style". I think more members would recognize it when referred to as Condition 1. (Thanks Col. Cooper!)

    From Wikipedia
    Cooper favored the Colt M1911 and its variants. There are several conditions of readiness in which such a weapon can be carried.

    Cooper promulgated most of the following terms:
    • Condition Four: Chamber empty, no magazine, hammer down.
    • Condition Three: Chamber empty, full magazine in place, hammer down.
    • Condition Two: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer down.
    • Condition One: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer cocked, safety on.
    • Condition Zero: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer cocked, safety off.

    I agee with you, I have owned and shot many weapons, my favorite is my HK USP. 40, but wouldn't make the claim best ever.( many members will quickly dispute that, even the ones who may not be familiar with the USP's ) I will say that it is the BEST for me. Best is very subjective. Pricey?,, sure. Worth it? IMO, Absolutely. But then again that's just MO. Angto address the post of the guys USP stovepiping, I would guess he was limp wristing, but again just a guess

    The ONLY time my usp 40 has stovepiped is when my 15 yo daughter shoots it, limp wristing. I've put around 2k rounds through her, never had it happen to me.

    Now that I think about it,my buddy may have been limp writing it.hes a big guy but is still relatively new to guns,we shot my .357 sp101 on the same outing and it was getting the best of him,thought for a second it may jump out of his poor grip on the thing. So he may have been doing the same with the USP and it was just not as apparent as with the sp101

    Yeah, i like H&K but, cant see spending a grand for one. I even saw one last week at the pawn shop for $699!!. If they were a little more in my range i would like a .45 USP compact.

    I have a USP 9 and quite honestly I don't see what the big deal is about H&K. I bought it because I really wanted to see what all the hoopla was about. The gun is OK, but that's about it. It is overpriced. The magazine release is poorly designed and can easily pinch your fingers. The magazines themselves are horribly overpriced and poorly constructed compared to a metal lined, drop free Glock magazine. A 33 round Glock 9 MM magazine can be had for about $31.00. A 31 round H&K USP magazine runs $140.00. That is insane. Also H&K has a buyer be damned attitude because they are heavily reliant on their military contracts. If it weren't for them they would starve. As I said the one I have is OK, but it is not my favorite 9 MM. I won't be rushing out to buy another.
