I can find a load of holsters for the USP 45c, but the full size seems to be a bit tougher.

Do you folks have any suggestions for a holster that is for the full size USP 45 and that can be worn at 4 o'clock position for CCW?

I know I could by a USP 45 Compact, but there's so little difference in size I don't think I'd actually be gaining much. I know it's an excuse to get a new gun, but honestly, I've got plenty. I'd just like to start carrying my USP instead of a 1911.

I use the Comp-Tac C-TAC. I wear it about 3:30 or so. It took some trial and error to get it just the way I like it, because it is so adjustable. I ended up flipping the tabs (there's a post on the net somewhere about it, I can find it if you want) and using the full forward cant. In this position, it's really comfortable and practically invisible. This was the first holster I bought, and there really was no need for another.

I just bought a Comp-Tac paddle holster for my USPf 45. In the 4 o'clock position, it can be disappeared with a buttoned flannel shirt of appropriate length. I asked them to build it geared for CCW as opposed to competition; I have no idea if they did anything different from their usual design, but the holster holds the weapon closer than other paddle holsters I have used from other manufactures.

I was very impressed with the customer service and the wait time (~1 week and I was sent emails nearly every day with updates). The fit is very good and the construction seems very robust; I am very happy and will order from them again.

Thank you guys, that's exactly the kind of info I was looking for.

Years ago I had another HK USP 45f and I used a paddle holster that left much to be desired. I'm glad to hear there have been some improvements. My preference is OWB for the most part.

Thanks again...

Would anyone mind posting pictures of their USP 45f in the holster, and also a picture of it on the body, concealed? That’s the only pistol I have, and although I have the CCW, I don’t carry mine concealed for fear of it not being concealed. I am in debate with myself about buying a compact 40, or a P30 or P2000, but that’s a different thread.

Anyways, I like the look of the Comp-Tac Holsters, and am just looking for info about them.

First off you need a good belt!! Do you OSW, (out side waist,) or ISW (inside the waist,)

A great reliable source for me has always been www.fist-inc.com They offer a great variety and I have a fist high ride with an FBI cant. You can also get a good belt from them. Customer service is great. You don't have to wait months for it and they are lower priced than the above mentioned.

The high ride give you a little better concealment as well as you won't need to buy all of your shirts in a long, size. TJ

G-Code makes a great conceal holster. But the question is safety. Do you want any type of retention? If so, I would go with the Blackhawk CQC SERPA.

I use a Blackhawk Serpa with a 1911, but they don't offer one for the full size USP 45, at least not that I can see.

Right now I've settled on using a nylon pancake type - very comfortable and concealable, but a bugger to reholster the weapon.
