I am about to make another handgun purchase. I have a p2000SK .40 and a USP in 45. I want something else and I don't like the expert or elite. I am embarrassed to say it is just because they look wierd to me. I target shoot a lot and want to get into some IDPA stuff. It seems like most of the IDPA enthusiasts like 1911's but I have no experience in them. I would like to get another HK, probably a Compact USP. Any disadvantage to a 45 cal compact? Of course I realize the mag only holds 8, but other than that I like it.
