Welcome! Looks just like my first HK, except newer. :)

I think that's one of the finest firearms ever made. Makes me look good every time I go to the range.

Since i bought her I picked up 2 of the ten round extended mags a AKER IWB and belt holster and two Mag Carriers.
Never leave home without it I feel naked without her on me.I started carrying it cocked and lock ,I found of the 20 plus years of shooting that the USP is By far the best handgun i have ever owned.
I am wanting to add a USC to my collection But that will be a while
Thank you guys for the warm welcome

I prefer a 2-color set up, green in the rear and orange in front. 3 green dots could mean your aiming wide left or right or even centered. Assuming you MAY use it as a HD weapon, I'd take in account the stress level you'd experience where it's easy to make simple, stupid mistakes like that. Having an orange dot in the middle will help make sure you hit your perp and not fire a hollow point into your hot water heater. :-D. As for the extended mag release, I did it and LOVE it! Ordered it from HKparts. Had to set up a notification when it came in stock and purchased within minutes of getting the email. You may already know its just the factory HK45C mag release and that it won't plug and play with a full size USP but will, and takes minutes to install, on a USPc. Happy modding!

No problem. In a 'tactical situation' I try to keep a keen eye for the simple. Under the sort of stress of being under fire, simple things become difficult. Training helps a whole lot but a complex or confusing item will be a problem under fire. Despite all our training, I've seen fellow Marines having a hard time just changing magazines under fire. Where I had a personal AR that I practiced mag changes and stoppage clearing while watching TV (in y off base apartment), I rarely even recall conducting a mag change when I'd actually done four! Point is, K.I.S.S. in everything you'll use in those situations. Even your kit layout on your vest/belt. If you're only gonna shoot the "X" out of targets at the range, adjustable sights would be great. But for defense...not so much. I'm rambling. LoL Enjoy your firearm!
Oh and remember, to win a fight you must have this mindset: "I am the weapon, my gun is just a tool."
