I've been on this forum quite awhile but apparently I forgot my creds and didn't want a lockout for exhausting 5 attempts, so I re-registered. Hoops a'plenty! ; )

It's an awesome gun I waited 3 months for. I didn't know it at the time, but I laid away a night sight model, which is cool. I was also impressed that it came with 3 mags. I do wish they made this model with a spur hammer, and I'm debating the factory replacement, but I hate shipping guns off. Wish it was as easy as replacing a 1911 part!

I remember asking here, when I was looking into this model, whether general user consensus was that it was as accurate as the full size. It's certainly as tight as my FS. I was assured it was as precise.

As with all things USP, the Leather Ironies abound: I have a nice skin-thin Don Hume IWB for my full size, but it's a fat gun and hard to sit on in a car. I bought the Compact as a thinner option, and my dream rig -- an Askins style -- is available for the short skinny one that doesn't need it (Blackhawk compact), but not for the full size. Go figure.

Loved my used one that I picked up here so much that I bought a second one. It's replaced my P2000SK as my EDC gun as to me it fits my hand better and is only marginally bigger. I also have a USPc in .45 as well, I'm a fan of the platform.

I love mine, find it very accurate. Although my full size usp9 has the match trigger which is really nice. I don't really carry, although the USP compact would be my carry gun. I need to get a nice holster for it. Congrats on a great gun:)!!

Congratulations on the compact. You're throwing me off about the thickness between the fs and compact. Though Hks website states that the compact is thicker than the fs, I believe they're both 1.26in. I would measure, but I'm not near both right now.

It is my favorite Gun, I carry my P2000sk 60% because it is so small but I prefer the USPc 9mm. I also shoot the USPc better than the P2Ksk but I live in the area of Chiraq so close encounters will be the norm. I did buy T&T Gunleather holsters for both and also clinger holsters for both so I do interchange as the mood fits. Both are 100% reliable with any load combo I throw their way. I even load the magazine with different bullet styles without any issues what so ever. So congrats and enjoy it.

Love mine! Added spur hammer, HK45C Mag release, Trijicon Green night sights, converted to V9, and DecalGrip. It's really an amazing fighting pistol!

USPc 45, summer the weapon rides in the N82 original IWB . winter CCW rides in Galco cop 3 slot holster .

USP line is one of the most reliable sidearms in history . congrats on the compact, i never leave home without it .

btw i just recently updated my USPt 45 with a new hammer, catch and sear spring . TooSixy has a post on Match Trigger Kit upgrade . i followed his instructions on disassembling the weapon, put in my new parts and reassembled the weapon . plenty of men on this forum with way more knowledge than me, if you need help with your USP your at the right place .

My favorite HK. Congrats! Got one in both HE finish and Stainless. Let me know if you swap the hammer. I was thinking of doing same.
