    I love my P30 9mm but love my HK 45 even more. In an entirely unnatural way.

    .40 S&W since all my handguns are .40 except the Ruger 22/45 and an old BHP in 9x19. My H&K is a USP40 and shoots very well with the hands down best recoil control out of the box on the market.

    9mm

    The felt recoil on the HK USP9c seems practically non existent when shooting it with two hands. I found myself shooting a lot with one hand just to feel a little more power and I still had very good accuracy during rapid firing.

    whats the recoil difference between an expert 9mm and expert .45? I got to shoot the 9mm expert but not the 45. Just wondering if the 45 blows your hand off or if the recoil reduction system keeps it under control? Big difference from the 9mm on this model?

    Hey guys, I have the p2000sk in .357/.40 and like both of them, for me the average joe i perfer the .40 for self defense. If i were a cop i would go with the .357 because of the penetration facter. I have some plinking steel spinners targets made for .22 cal, so i wanted to see what would happen if i shot them with the .357 and the .40 when i shot it with the .40 it folded the spinner at about a 45% angle and with the .357 it ripped it in half.

    If I go with an HK.. The 45 or 45C fire me up. Dead sexy!



    Although I wouldn't mind carrying a 2000sk in .40

    .... so I'm undecided. Shooting a 9mm 226 right now and love it, but was considering a larger caliber for giggles.. (edited: retracted stupid statements concerning caliber differences)

    In HK, the 45, the 2000 or P30 all call to me... "buy me! buy me!"

    I do best with my full size USP 45 by far. I have a good variety of other handguns but I cannot consistently do as well as I do with the USP. Seems on other weapons, either the grip angle or the trigger eventually get to me.

    I really owe it to myself to pickup a USP 45c or a HK 45c, but the bank funds are a little low right now. One day....

    Yea, I like the HK's...alot, but damn their pricey NIB. If I bought one tomorrow it would be the USP .45 I have shot many a HK's, smooth man, I love em, just don't have the pocket book for em. Shot the MP5 while I was in Kuwait, that was neato!

    I've owned a USP 40c, 45f, and 9f. And of them all. I liked the 9 best. Not to rehash tired arguments over caliber but, with modern quality rounds there is not a whole lot of difference in balistics. And add to that how cheap it is to shoot 9mm, I'll stick with the 9.

    (Though I did love my 45 too.)

    Thumbs up

    Just shot my brand new HK P30 9mm for my HR 218 card and it performed flawlessly. Carried a SigSauer in 357 sig as a duty weapon with the gov't. Both are great rounds.

    I shoot my USPc in 9mm is a hoot to shoot. I have a new USPc in .45 that I'm getting used to. Maybe next year I will get me a full size in .45 I'm just about done with 1911's

    Any HK in .45 is a dream to shoot. If you ever have a chance try a Mk. 23.
