She shot it better than the new P238 we picked up for her next week.

    I didn't think I'd ever want to sell my CZ P-01 which is a fantastic gun and only purchased back in August but I'm finding myself considering it for the chopping block for another HK. I've really been wanting a P30L but I find myself really liking the USP line. Decisions decisions....
    Wish I had known that last week. There was one for sale locally for 750.00 lightly used V3 with safety... I just checked. It's gone.

    I have the USP 9 and the USP 45, and I have had the same reliability with both: zero problems! Just my 2 cents..

If you use Hornady ammo you are asking for a stoppage and the kind the requires you to pull on the slide so hard to eject the round your hands will hurt. Beware.

    Hornady critical duty must be better off. I've shot a 3 hundredish 135gr +p through my usp9 with 0 problems. Plus several thousand of the 135gr training ammo.

    If I decide to get a P30 or P30L I might just try to go used, I usually go NIB. It seems like there are quite a bit of them on Armslist so when the time comes I might just go that route. First I want to get a trust going before Jul7 13th so I get grandfathered in.

    i'm not brand loyal, when it comes to a vehicle, i don't buy it for its looks or popularity, show me what's under the hood and how reliable is the motor . when i set out to find the most reliable weapon for CCW, i did not feel comfortable carrying my g19 . i have always loved the 1911 platform, so i researched and ask other experts for an honest opinion . i kept getting the same answer, H&K USP 45/USP 45c . bought 'em, carry 'em, bet my life on 'em . the USP 45 is one of the most reliable weapons ever made PERIOD .

    yall know my coined saying,

    Browning made history, Heckler & Koch made it better !

    Interesting that a caliber like the 9, apparently under-powered (as far as mechanical beat-up to the gun goes) should be the problem child. You'd think the larger calibers would pound them faster/harder/better/sooner.

    You misunderstood what they were getting at, it wasn't speaking to the durability of the pistols…. but rather how forgiving of limp wristing issues. The 9mm being least forgiving, .45 being the most…. .40 somewhere in between. Most pistols get sent in thinking their is a problem with them… only to have the armorer find nothing wrong, because the owner was not locking the wrist properly when shooting.

    When I first time looked at mine USP 45 I knew it will survive a lot. That is why I got it! :) It is german tank!
