i had the pleasure this weekend to borrow a good friends USP .45. i borrowed the gun because i am currently working out a deal for a stainless model.the second i opened the box to this pistol i fell in love. this is the definition to kick doors down, shoot first and ask questions later. this gun is big and mean and angry looking. i shot it and shot it and shot it until my wrists started hurting. then i found some steel casing crap ammo and loaded it up. the gun ate it like it was corn flakes. it had one light strike with the crap ammo. but i just pulled the trigger again and away it went. as far as i am concerned this pistol beats Glock in every way shape and form. i cannot wait to get my own. if **** hit the fan and i could only have one gun. i would walk past 10 Glock stores for a 10 year old USP. i am sold.
