I work at a local gunstore in South Florida, & was at a competitor's store checking out a used HK USP 45 C no box 3 mags AD gun I heard he had, but my highest offer was $550, but the manager wanted $600 + tax. On the way out, a fellow tapped me on the shoulder and asks what I could afford to pay. He is a customer of our store as well. He tells me he has a USP 45C unfired gun from the store we were in. [ it was unfired] We settled on $725, & he brought the gun to my shop later on. I fired 10 shots, & it's real sweet. BA gun. So this will be my carry gun. I now have the dilema, do I sell the HK 45 USP full size which sits by the bed at night, & hardly gets shot, or do I keep them both? I know lot's of people have several HK pistols, but if the full size gun just sits, I could just have the 45C gun which I'd carry every day at work selling guns. GARY N4KVE

Sell that USP .45 full-size to save up for an HK45C and you're all set. :wink:
Tough call it's hard to beat a USP but if you have your heart set on a HK45c then go for it, if you can swing it money wise save and buy both.

I wouldn't sell your USP for another compact... what's the strategy in that? Fullsize guns have there place along with compacts and sub compacts. I vote carry your USPc and use the fullsize USP for a nightstand gun or put it in your truck/car for a rainy day. When it comes to HK's the more the merrier...

What I was questioning is should I sell the fullsize gun & only have the USP compact I just got as my only HK gun? Should I keep the fullsize which will probably just sit by the bed, & hardly ever get shot? Had the guy yesterday had a HK45C instead of a USP compact, I wouldn't have done the deal, as I'm not fond of the HK45C. I'm not really a collector, so if I don't really use a gun much, I don't keep it. GARY N4KVE

Keep the full size. I promise you will regret selling it. I speak from experience. :)

It would be hard as hell for me to sell any of my HK's!

Good post, amstaff. :) This approach makes sense to me.

speaking from my experience...the .45ACPs are the ones that are gettin hard to find (around these parts anyhow) and have seemed to me to be a "no ?s asked" value-holder...This is from a guy with 2 .40s who has been looking for a full-size OR compact USP in .45 for like 2 years ( in the area...I don't do Online unless its here:150000:)

Keep it...just in case...worse comes to worse you can raise some quiiiiiiick $$ if need arises

Do you have a need for the money? If you don't really need the money right now I would say keep it. The USP45 is a fantastic pistol and a perfect nightstand gun. If I didn't have to get rid of it, I wouldn't.

Sell the full-size, but use the money for a USP45 Expert. :wink:

That's about the only USP I want to buy, and also the only .45 pistol I would buy.

I have sold one HK and still regret selling it. One of the first USP .40 caliber's in the country serial number 22-141. Damn, I still remember the serial number.
