biggest difference in the USPc 45 is grip, size and the standard 8rd mag capacity . USPc 45 will accept 10rd (elephant's foot mag.) mags .
i own both... but the USPc 45 (EDC) is hands down the winner ! if your a 45 fanboy the USP's will not disappoint !
you need to rent/shoot both, 2 total different sidearms .

I know what you mean about custom pistols, just had a very heavily modified Browning Hi-Power built by Don Williams come home in Ion Bond Diamond Black....HK are alot less exspensive and shoot just as well.
Ok seeing as how you are in CA ..I would save up and just get whatever you want in a free state ..Why you ask?
Well in CA unless you are cop etc your options for a handguns is the list stuff ..Now that you own a VP9 I assume you are either exempted from the safe list or have a way to PPT ..But even if your going to PPT it is not cheep and the price is stupid high for CA stuff off list
So I would wait ..Esp on the HK23 as you have to add the fun of getting a non threaded barrel ...I would go for a P7M8 over 13 due to the ban on over 10 round mags
As for rifles I would again skip or get into the roller lock sporting line ..Only as I hate the grip fin on rifles and pin open stock
Got my new-to-me HK45T out of jail yesterday. Version 7 Light LEM trigger. What a fantastic shooter! Felt great.
It even bested my USP Expert's previous result. Then I shot the Expert right after the HK45T. The Expert just barely outshot the HK45T in this go-around.
The HK45T is a winner even if I was more accurate with the USP this outing. Many many cool points.
So NOW which do I get? I'm leaning P30L or USP in 9mm. Just unsure if I want the full size USP or a compact one. Also have the USP .45 Compact with a stainless steel slide on my list. And I very nearly PPT'd a P2000, but didn't think it was different enough from my P2000SK/P30SK/ VP9 trio.
I guess the answer is all the above and the question is really "which is next on the list?"
Hey Time Welcome to the addiction that is HK. I will say that HK is mainly what I collect but there are others aswell. There are cheaper guns that do the same things but not as well. HK is like Porsche or Merc there are others that will get to from point A to B but maybe will less bells and whistles.
I would recommend a USP or HK 45C or even a Mark 23 if you want all the HK shoved into one pistol you can handle. Its also as accurate as my full custom 1911s. I like HK cause they are overbuilt like crazy and MK 23 is the king of that. The USP to me will always be the hammer I have almost every model of HK built and it still feels the highest quality of them all when you rack the slide it also has the best trigger of the bunch.
The P30 and P30L are great but the triggers aren't as good but certainly good enough for what they were designed for. I really like the P30L out of the P30s its soft shooting and very accurate. This holds true for HK 45 the trigger isnt as good as the USP Match trigger. Those guns are easier to conceal by far and have their uses of course.
Speaking from owning almost every handgun they have ever made over the years the Mark/USP will always be the flagship in my eyes. The MK 23 and Match are probably my two favorite to shoot. They have alot of personality. Next for me are the USP Tacticals or Elites. I just picked up an Expert so I cant comment on it yet but if its like the Elite its awesome.
