    When I draw/fire my thumb on my strong hand turns over the safety, then continues past the safety lever to rest on the last knuckle/heel of my weak hand. Therefore I'll not decock the USP. That being said I've giving some very strong consideration to switching to a varient 9 detent plate for my USP. I've never been a fan of the extra wide extended safety levers on 1911s. It almost forces you ride the safety.

    Does that make sense gunut???

    ANother idea I forgot to mention is to go with the ambi safety. The off side lever will contact your hand way before it will decock.

    I wish I could get the wider safety on my HK compact (like the one on the fullsize USP) and also a hammer on my compact that can be easily cocked - the USPc has a bobbed hammer. That being said, I'll live w/ what I have because I am too cheap to pay the approx $200 that HK would charge if I sent it in. They are way over priced on their parts. Heck, I have heard that just the safety switch is like $80 from HK (for only the part). That's ridiculous.

    Yeah I understand. IF I have two hands on the pistol it does not matter because my other hand stops it from de cocking. This only happens at times when I draw and shoot with one hand. I like resting my thumb on my safety. I got use to doing it with my 1911 and is very comfortable. I think I just need to practice with it more.

    Notice the grip. My strong thumb rests on my weak nuckle and weak thumb sits aginst the frame just in front of the slide stop.

    I like to put a finger from my left hand on the outside of the trigger guard - on the front of it. I started doing that about 5 years ago, and I find it works best for me. I'm so used to it now that when I try to shoot w/o doing that, I don't shoot as well.

    Well, I find that it helps steady the gun - some guns even have checkering there.

    Others say that it can pull the gun down when you fire. I guess it just depends on how U manage to do it - it may not be for everyone. I just tried it for fun once and have done it ever since - I think I started in 98 or 99 (doing that)...

    Yeah I will have to give that a try. Both my HK and Beretta have checkering there.
