H&K USP Compact / Taurus PT-145 Side By Side
I'll throw in another compare and contrast for visual refrence for anyone considering one of these two. I posted this on another Taurus Forum too.
They both fit my High Noon Bare Asset...lucky me I didn't have to buy 2 holsters :) . The USP Compact .40/.357 sig is a significant hunk of metal though compared to the PT-145 .45. The PT-145 holds 10+1, the USP Compact can get 12 or 13 +1 depending. USP-c is DA/SA (Variant 1), PT-145 is DOA, Taurus switched the PT-145 in February or March to SAO with double strike capability (like their award winning 24/7 line) and put Heine 2 dot sights on them, I got lucky and found a brand new DOA version on clearance for $309. The USP I bought off a co-worker who didn't like it, unfortunately H&K's warranty only extends to the original buyer, Taurus has a lifetime Warranty that follows the piece, not the owner. Haven't had any problems with either one though.
I picked up the the PT-145 Millenium Pro for CCW after a few years of loving my USP Compact, but boy does it seem big now.
