    Default First range trip with USP Expert

    Yesterday despite having it for nearly a month I finally made it to the range with my USP Expert. I am thrilled with how soft and accurate it was with the 147gr Fenix ammo I was using. I had a couple of stove pipes that I will chalk up to the ammo and my support hand thumb dragging on the slide. I also ran a couple of mags of Federal HST 124gr +P my preferred carry ammo without issue. I knew I wasn't going to be a fan of the all black front sight and will be ordering a FO front from Dawson soon. Despite that and the less than stellar indoor lighting I was very happy with the accuracy. I do think that the grip will benefit from the extra length of a jet funnel as it is a bit short making the whole pistol feel front heavy when shooting strong hand or support hand only.

    I also brought my HK45 which has quickly made me realize I need more 45's in my life. The first two targets were shot at 10yds and the second pair at 15. I will add that as much as I dislike HK's OEM 3 dot sights (I've black out the rears with a sharpie) they are definitely easier for me to see in an indoor environment than the Experts all black target sights.

    It has been on mine for years. I think my only two other must haves at this point ar a USP9c and an HK45c.

    Congrats - both great shooting pistols!

    You'll love the fiber optic front sight on the Expert. I've bought and sold many, many different guns......the Expert 9 is one of the only ones I somewhat regret selling. It was absurdly accurate in my hands - a precision instrument. Maybe I'll pick up another one day.

    Enjoy it! :)

    I would suggest two things if its your first range trip. 1) Disassemble and lightly oil. 2) Run standard pressure ammo (115gr or 124gr). I'm pretty sure if I hadn't been using sub-sonic 147gr I wouldn't have had the few stove pipes I did have.
