    Well if I had the bucks and the last four was what I had to choose from. I would go with the HK compact if I was going to carry it. I would go with the USP if I was just going to use it at the range and home protection. Your choice? Good luck.

    Between the Glock and HK the HK wins hands down!!! Of course they cost quite a bit more too.

    I love Glock and HK kick butt. But for the price: Glocks.

    I just sold my Glock 34 - I hated the trigger. The USPc trigger is much nicer

    No...but the better construction, sites, trigger, and ergonomics are

    It is only $140 more if you look around.

    I sold my HK USP and got a Glock 19. I did not like the harsh grip on the HK and it's slightly heavier than a Glock, which was another factor for me. Plus, it seemed parts and accessories were more expensive and less numerous than for Glocks. Both are great weapons though.

    Shoot both if you can then get the HK

    Did you consider the HK P2000?

    Thumbs up HK

    It will be well worth the wait to save up for the HK.

    I'd recommend against a 10MM. Ammo is getting expensive and hard to find for the 10MM. Many local stores carry a very limited variety of 10MM. I'd go with the USP in .45 or if you went with the Compact, maybe even a 9MM.

    I was considering the HK USP for carry but I discovered the last time I held one that it was a bit too large for carry for my tastes. The Glock 19 is perfect carry size in my view since I would want something with a 4 inch barrel or very close to that dimension. I like the looks of the HK USP C but I worry about having enough accuracy shooting a gun with such a short barrel to qualify for the Iowa permit. I like the Sig 229 but the cost and weight are giving me second thoughts. I'll make my decision in a couple of months when I move back to Iowa after wintering in NC but right now, I'm leaning toward the G 10 in OD green with night sights.

    Correction, that should be the G 19. Sorry

    My USPc out shoots any Glock I've encountered.

    Its all personal preference, either weapon will serve you well. Buy what YOU like.

    The bbl on the compact is 3.8" and I find it very accurate! At 12 yards un-supported I can get 2" groups with it.

    Given the choices of Glock or HK, I would choose the HK. The USP compact to be specific.

    I'd buy the Glock.

    Glocks are prolific, they are easy to get parts / accessories / holsters / magazines for, and they are boringly reliable. They have great capacity for their size and they are 'Tonka-tough'. The trigger is fine as long as you know how to shoot. I much prefer the Glock trigger to the crazy-heavy double action first shot from an H&K USP-- I thought I was shooting a PA63 or something.

    H&K customer service isn't very good unless you're a really big time customer, such as the government of a medium- to- large- sized country. You'll pay through the nose for additional magazines and any other kind of accessories. Glocks have fewer moving parts, less to go wrong with, same trigger pull first to last. I've not been impressed with USP pistols at all. The mags feel like junk, and so do their polymer frames. Glock frames are pretty substantial feeling, and they're slim and concealable.

    Especially in 10mm, I don't think there's any pistol I'd buy besides a Glock.

    Unless you're just a rabid Jack Bauer fan (and who isn't?) I'd choose Glock every time. And if the television show 24 is the deciding factor in your choice of defensive pistol, get a two-tone Sig Sauer like Jack had in the first season. It's classier than a USP, better-made and with a better trigger.
