    Holy resurrected thread!

    My USP 45 is a nail driver. If yours is not accurate or shooting where you're not pointing it, get back to the shooting basics!

    I am curious, as I may be purchasing the usp40 tactical...(maybe) I have heard great things, and the prices are great on .40 !
    Fullsize USP .40SW won't run .357sig, HK could never get it sorted out.

    Only the USP Compact .40sw can be
    converted to .357sig

    Thank you @Kost ! Much appreciated.

    Still considering the usp40T. I know my p30 .40sw is way too light for the .40. The USP should be a better platform for the .40.

    Cheers!

    I've trained and practiced with the USP.40 since 1997 and I love the pistol. I have a few. Recoil is not an issue with any USP. Capacity and penetration in various objects, the .40 wins out in my book.

    You really can't go wrong with either. The USP40 and 45 are excellent guns. But if cost is an issue, the USP40 will be far less expensive.

    I agree in general with many firearms, but not for the USP. For the size of the gun I would argue you get more bang for the buck with a USP .45. 12+1 of 45 acp is still great capacity for the round whereas 13+1 for a modern .40, especially for the size, is below average. I guess I am saying go with the .45! :D

    Try them if you haven't. Only issue I have with the 45 is it's longer grip, I don't get a good perch on it like the other where the mag flare is up against my pinky.

    USP 45, can run .45 Super if you need protection from large animals. GJM on pistolforum wrote a lot on this.

    I have big bony hands so I like it better than my USP 9mm or my HK45. I have shot the USP 45, USPT 45 a lot they are very accurate.
