Got a new toy today :) - I traded my Springfield TRP for a USP 9mm and some cash. I went to all the trouble of refinishing that 1911, but I just wasn't shooting very accurately w/ it. My SW99 is actually my fav gun, but I did pretty good w/ this one at the range.

I like that the USP can be carried cocked and locked, if you wish... PLus, while the DA pull is obviously heavy, kinda like any SA/DA gun. The SA pull is really nice. It breaks very nicely.

I don't think I will hard chrome the slide like I did w/ my other 2 polymer guns. I had some issues with Tripp Research in getting my 1911 right, and I'm kinda fed up w/ them. I sent part of the gun back a 2nd time, and would have had to do so again next week.

Thanks. I shot it pretty well.

Sigs never caught my interest until very recently. I've been checking out various models lately. I can't wait for the SAS models (the ones w/ the wooden grips and two tone gun) to come out in other calibers besides .40 S&W. There may be a Sig in my future :p

Went to the range again yesterday. Took the USP and my Glock 34 - I haven't shot the 34 in a few months. It is my nightstand gun, but it doesn't get much range use.

Anyway, i shot better with the USP - It is a very good gun. Watch out for the plastic checkering, though. It is very sharp - but the gun won't slip in your hands, that is for sure.

The SA break on the trigger is one of the best I've had on a DA/SA. I haven't seen any equivalent to a "D" spring to lower the DA pull. But w/ the thumb safety on the frame, it doesn't matter. Since I'm used to 1911s, I keep the pistol cocked and locked all the time.

Actually, I made another post yesterday - don't know if you noticed - I got a compact USP in 9mm yesterday afternoon. Now I have a fullsize and compact. The fullsize is more accurate at the range, but I always have a tendancy to shoot compact guns not quite as well. For pure range use, I like 4" barrels or longer. But, it is a nice gun. I got the compact because I like the ability to keep the gun cocked and locked (w/ the frame safety).
