    Seems like most stories I hear about MDW's imports are along those lines...

    Stay strong, though. You'll forget about the wait after you have it.

    Given my avatar, my bias is plain. That said, how can any of us know which you should buy?

    You appear to know enough about the guns; after that it's totally a matter of what *you* like and what you intend to use it for. 9MM vs. 45 preference?, higher or lower capacity?, race gun with the jet funnel for games? longer sight radius for maximum slow-fire accuracy? etc. At this point there's not much more to say beyond "get xxxxx, you'll like it!" (although I do believe the "buy both" comment was a worthy addition).

    I know. I forget I even ordered it until threads like this come up!

    I just asked which one do you guys like better/prefer. I didn't ask anyone to pick it for me.

    45 is outdated and belongs in the era of the 1911 and MK23. Heavier, less rounds per mag, more expensive to shoot, and these days 9mm even suppresses better with the heavier bullets. Also, being rare doesn't make it better... give it time, im sure HK will stop production of the Expert again, and they will be just as hard to find.

    Get an expert and don't look back! 18 rounds of 9mm, zero recoil, insane accuracy, less bullet drop when you push those rounds out, near half the price for a case of ammo, and if its for defense, not many are walking away from 124 or 147 gr JHPs. Im likely biased because every time I get a 45, its sold within a couple weeks, but for me, I just don't enjoy shooting them nearly as much... but I do admit the older I get, the less I like recoil and noise. Find my thread on the USP Expert write up, I have two and sent one out to get a RMR installed and already have the Jarvis threaded barrel for it!

    Im sure I will get flamed for disliking 45 ACP, but it just doesn't serve a purpose in my world.

    I think I like the era of the mk23 and 1911...

    That said I like the expert over elite.

    Looks like they belong to the same era to me
