    Default USPC - Carry with Flat or Extended Baseplate?

    I'm getting ready to start EDC my USP45C. I've been going back and forth on whether to carry with the flat baseplate or the extended baseplate. Practicing dry fire and at the range from my AIWB holster, I don't seem to notice that much difference. I would like to know from the folks that have been EDC any USPC's for awhile which baseplate do you carry with and why. Also, any positive or negative experiences with either baseplate. Thanks in advance.

    I like the finger extension base pad, as it gives me a better grip on the gun, and doesn't appear to effect the concealability in the method in which I carry. My reload mag does not have the extension, as I've found I'm less likely to pinch my pinky using it in reloading.

    I switched to the flat baseplate on my P2000. The pistol feels so much slimmer now and it conceals more easily. I don't have very large hands so the extension does nothing for me.

    I prefer the flat. The grip fits my hand well without the pinkie extension and it is less for the shirt to snag on.

    High speed low drag is flat baseplate. Why carry something with an extended hook on the end if the whole point is "concealed?"
    I prefer to shoot with the finger rest baseplate though. That's what I assume you are referring to and not the extended 10 round mag.

    I prefer the flat baseplate with my sidearm, my spare mags I don't care.

    Same here, I use the flat base plates, don't miss the "hook" while I'm shooting and it probably saves about .5" in height while concealing.
