It's really a coin toss between the two of them and both are fantastic pistols. The .45acp USPT is far more iconic than the 9mm USPT though.

If you plan on shooting it regularly, the .9 is far more economical to practice with. And .9 defense ammo has came a long way in the past twenty years.
I love my tactical. 45. Only wish i could feed it better and enjoy it more.
Both are extremely good choices, but as always, get one you can afford to practice with. That's my opinion, Of Course. .
Good luck.

9mm will have a slightly smaller grip (and overall will be smaller), if you've got smaller hands. Mags are cheaper, ammo will be cheaper... .45 will probably be better to suppress since most .45 is subsonic. And the .45 Tactical has been around much longer the 9 Tactical.

Personally, I have a Mark 23 for my full (or perhaps past full) sized .45, and a USP Tactical 9mm, and don't feel the need for a USP Tactical .45. If you can afford the Mark 23, I say go for it, there's not a single handgun I can shoot nearly as well as it (USP Tactical included).

I dunno. It seems conventional wisdom would indicate get the USP45T as it's the "iconic" one, and yah, it's great.

I'll be honest though, I really like shooting my USP9SD w/match trigger and can. Using 147 grn subs or 158 grn subs (PPU ammo), I thought it was really nice.

Do you have a pistol silencer? If so, maybe make the decision based on that? If you have 45 and 9 cans, I'd just flip a coin.

personally Id get 9 as subsonic 9 is still considerably less expensive than any 45.
