USP Compact .45
So which one out of the ones selected?
I like the USPc, but in 9mm. OUT of ONLY those choices, I chose the P2000 in 9mm.
I like .45, but generally only out of a 1911.

Thought about that, but with a suppressor on the Tactical I figured that would be enough! (maybe an ankle holster, whadda' ya' think?)
I Voted USPc but I will never apply for CCW permit
I could not vote on this one because I would like to carry them all and with a bad back the extra weight would hurt.

Number one, .Illinois dont Allow CCW at ALL!!!.
Number two, when there is new law that might arise, the Law enforcement will know that i have one and they will probably want to consfisifcate my firearm over a stupid new law that might come up in future.
Number three, I am deaf and I can't Shout (P.S. If I was hearing, I would proabably being a L.E officer by now or in one of armed forced brances)
E. none of the above
I would go for a P7M8.
Best shooter of the lot.
Before I bought a 1911 last year, I thought about buying one of these - but 1 - I hear they will be discontinued, and parts may be an issue in the future. 2 - I hear its not a gun U fire a lot of rounds thru at 1 session (heat and fouling in the gas chamber).Originally Posted by Dorian
And finally - the main issue - I won't ddrop that kinda money w/o at least firing 1 once. 1911s are still more or less the same, no matter what the brand. Before I spend that much cash - I wanna try one first. And, I know no one here w/ one.
Depending on where you are in Tx, you may be able to find some one to let you shoot one on this board.

As far as being discontinued, yes they were but you can still find new ones lying around. As far as parts being an issue in the future if you pick up a new one it is under a life time warranty, & I believe they will carry parts for at least 10 years.
When it comes to putting a lot of rounds down range it does get hot of you are doing rapid fire, but if you are just doing slow fire it is no problem at all. Or if you let it cool a little in between mags you will be fine. While fouling in the gas chamber is an issue we are talking about hundreds of rounds here. Think 500 to a 1000 not after just tens of rounds. That said I do clean mine after each time I shoot it & have never had a problem with it fouling.
I second Dorian's vote for the P7M8. All the USP derivatives, including the P2000, seem a little clunky to me. The P7 is a slender little joy in comparison. Slim, low bore axis, well-shaped grip, good trigger.
They don't design 'em like that anymore. To quote Obi Wan Kenobi, "It's an elegant weapon, from a more civilized age." Now we have mostly big, unwieldy cookie-cutter guns suited for the masses but not the well-trained serious shooter.
I'll never buy a USP or a P2000, but if I'm ever fortunate enough to run across a good deal on a P7, the wallet will come out. I can live with the fact that it gets a little hot and you have to scrape the gas tube. The gun has advantages that don't really come to light until you shoot it.
Thanks for the review... I'll look into that siteOriginally Posted by Dorian
I find the only real problem I have had with the P7M8 is my wife decided she liked it & wanted one for herself. So I had to go & order another one. The up side was when I started looking I found a pair of consecutive serial number P7M8’s Jubilee Editions NIB for us to go to the range with.
Oh well what are you going to do, anything that gets her to the range is worth it.
But it did double my range costs. LOL
Soooo......does that mean you have the first one for sale?Originally Posted by Dorian
Sorry No I’m not selling any of my P7’s ever if I can help it.
Psss… don’t tell them but I’m trying to catch up to hberttmank, & Clyde.
But if you are looking try that site I linked before several changing hands there all the time. Besides there are some great people there with a good sense of humor.
Yeah, something told me you would be that way I am a member of PCT but I only lurk. Without checking, I would say that I probably have never posted there. Looks like a good bunch. I'll keep watching the site for a P7M8 'cause I am in the market. Sorry to hi-jack the thread. I'm done.
