Short Fingers a Curse

Tonight I was handling several of my 45's and admittedly the one that felt the best and more natural was the XSE Commander followed by the SW1911SC. I love my USP-C 45 but when I put my hand around it, the index finger and thumb just barely meet. Short fingers and wider pistol grips are a curse. Wide to me, that is. It's no real problem but there is a definite difference it the way it feels over the 1911 grip. I can live with it if for no other reason I don't have to tweak or try different magazine/spring/follower combinations to get it to run. It's perfect as is right out of the box and the various rounds I've tried in it from first rack to last one in the magazine fired, it's as slick as Clinton. You can't argue with that. I wish the USP-C was just a little smaller in the grip but I know there's guys that have thumbs as long as my index finger and it's perfect for them.

I understand it , too. That's why I had to go to the HK45C. It fits my smallish hand perfectly, as does the P7 and the P2000. Don't forget the P30. They are all just as great as the USPC. I was amazed at how much better I shot with the HK45C than the USP45C. It's just me, I'm sure but still...short fingers + smaller grip = comfort and control.
