I purchased one of the Classic HK USP 9 compacts and used it today for the first time. I was shooting 124 gr. 9mm ammo, about 200 rounds and zero issues. I greased it up with Weapon Shield, generously, my SOP with all my firearms when using them for the first time.

Here's my question.

As far as I can tell, it is designed and intended to be used in the following way.

Chamber a round, then put it on safe, holster, etc. Draw, safe off, shoot, then back on safe.

With the trigger in this thing, would you ever NOT put it on safe? Is the LEM trigger different between the first shot and subsequent shots?

I guess I'm not getting it. Not sure f I'm making sense with this question or not.

You got it.

Yes, the LEM is as simple as that. No difference in shots.

The gun you bought has a safety. This doesn't change how the LEM works.

It just gives you an inch or so of trigger travel before you hit the break. Is it the fastest system for splits? No. But as a street trigger for a CCW, I love it.

Enjoy the pistol!

I would say use this gun how you would any other LEM. Personally, the safety will go on to holster the gun and then come off and remain off until the gun needs to be holstered again. As long as the safety doesn't get in the way of me shooting accurately, I'll leave it on because I think it's kinda cool to have a rare USP with ambi safety. If it gets in the way, I'll remove it and shoot the gun like all of my other hammer fired HK's (which are LEM without safety).

It was very fun to shoot today....not sure how I feel about the LEM trigger yet, but it is a sweet shooter. I think I liked it more than the P30SK I just bought and shot today. The other thing I like about the USP 9 Compact is its ability to accept the VP9/P30 full size mags, but I recognize I have to get the spacers to avoid slamming the ejector.

I love LEM and have several. I explain it to people almost like a two stage trigger on a rifle. There is take up and than a break. Once you figure out the sweet spot for the reset, LEM can be shot very quickly.

It wont get you Gary Mucilek like splits, but for CCW it is great...perfect in my mind and I carry a P2Ksk in Light LEM IWB at 5 oclock position.

Have many LEM guns.
None have a manual safety.
Use it if it makes you feel better.
IMHO - the only real safety is you finger off the trigger.

I have 2 LEM pistols. A P30 V1 from the factory and a USP45 CT that I converted to LEM myself. Never saw the need for a safety lever with the LEM trigger. However I recently picked up a grey framed P30S and I must say I love having the lever there for my left thumb to ride on(I'm a lefty). It is so comfortable. I'm kind of wishing my V1 P30 had the safety. Well maybe just the safety lever lol, I don't care about the SAFE part, that is my trigger finger and my brain.
