I have both and would trust my life with either. I personally shoot the P2000 better but like the USPc better. Only carry complaint with either is with the USPc if carried next to skin, the grip texture in uncomfortable.

For me it would be the P2000 between the two. If you require a safety get the USP-C, otherwise the P2000 probably makes the most sense in that it comes with four changeable back straps.

CDNN has a super sale on the P2000 right now for $499 brand new. A USP-C would probably be at least $250 more. At $499 if for some reason you did not like it you could probably sell it for at least $499 used.

That P7M8 in your sig is the best EDC you could dream of. If it's too precious, find one on GB in used conditon. If you elect to EDC the P7 in summer, I can vouch for the VP9 as a superb heavy clothing winter altnernative. They are very easy to cross train on, and have way more similarities (muscle memory and sight comfort) than almost any winter/summer combo I can think of.

I'm sorry, Unless you have smaller hands, I just can't really imainge wanting a compact when you have a P7. What more could you hope for in features?

I also looked at the P2000 this summer. They were trying to give them away. The combination of a hammer, and NO safety? EASY pass. DA 1st shots totally throw my triple tap, and dropping a hammered handgun without a safety? It was SUCh a pass for me. I found the P2K to be the weakest HK offering I have yet to see.

While the USP/C doesn't fit my hand well I prefer it to the P2000. I like the control lever for thumb placement on the USP line along with the trigger modularity. The factory triggers are better on the USP/C and a majority of the match trigger kit will fit making it even better. I don't care for the rear mounted decocker and the grip on the P2000 needs enhancement like a Talon or Agrip where the USP/C doesn't.

The P30 solves the grip ergo and traction issues but I still find the trigger to be meh and that rear decocker. Again all just my opinion.

I shoot my USPc better than a P2000, even though the P2000 fits my hand better. The trigger on the USPc is better, which is likely the reason.

I own and carry both.
Both great guns.
It's all about personal preference.
For me, in my hands, I shoot the P2000 a little better.
So that's what I carry more often.
Ergonomics with the four size backstrap options.
Give the P2000 a slim advantage for me.
But everyone's hands are different.
Really splitting hairs here.
Personally I'd be happy with either one.

I just bought one from a guy on ar15. Had I seen the ad for the cdnn ones I would have bought that one.
I only paid a little more though.
I am going to give the p2000 a try.
I agree the P7M8 is a great carry gun. Not sure why I do not carry it. Probably just to expensive. She stays in the safe most of the time.

I own both and each gets carried about the same.

The USP C has a nicer trigger, and still feels more rugged to me than the P2000, but its also blockier.

The P2000 seems to be easier to carry with its more rounded shapes, and has a slightly more comfortable grip.

I love both, so its a tough call for me.

i find the p2000 grip to slippery for CCW, i prefer "the bite" the USPc offers . it boils down to personal preference .

as for my HK45ct vs my USPc 45, both have been 100% reliable !

Helped friend of mine choose between these two exact pistols. He decided on the USP Compact 9mm because of the placement of the decocker. He said it just felt more natural to have the Decock where it's placed on the USP Compact.

I converted my USP Compact 9mm to V9 to eliminate the Decock feature, and prefer this setup.

Depends what you feel comfortable with.

I have both and like both but, prefer the P2000 as my CCF. It really boils down to personal preference, as they are both great handguns and both will CC well. You should shoot both and decide.

I saw the CDNN sale a few days ago and have been looking for a reason to sell my Glock and replace it with a nicer 9mm pistol anyway. I also have the USPC, so I'll let you know how the P2000 9mm compares after I've had a chance to put it through its paces. I have noticed that my USPC rubs my skin a little raw during carry, but the texture did get softer over time (or maybe my skin got tougher), and I don't notice that so much anymore. That said, I like the USP quite a lot so I don't expect it to be replaced, just complemented

I say USP Compact for the trigger alone. USPs have better triggers than the P2000s. It's icing on the cake that the front and rear checkering is more aggressive than the P2000. I also do like my surfboard slide stop.
