range report.

went to a range to fire my newly acquired hk 45 usp. i had to used reloads that i got from the range since they only allow tmj. i'll try my normal fmj new ammo next time in a different range. i used 100 rounds.

i never fired a 45 before, but i fired sig 226, and colt phyton but this is a long time ago. the usp45 doesn't have too bad of recoil, shoots quit nice actually.
i had some trouble shooting first time as you can see from the paper target, it's all the way on the bottom! :) but some improvement after i got used to it.
a little difficulty shooting in DA, i guess i just need more practice. but overall it's good fun.

i noted that there are some chips on the slide, i'm not sure if this is from the brass or the actual Hostile Environment finish that wears off. I was hoping that the slide finish at least would hold, considering this is an $800 handgun. :banghead: dad's p226 didn't have this problem (alright, different caliber, but whatever)
but i guess if it works, that's okay.

i also used 2 promag magazines. no problems with loading or locking slide when its empty. it's cheap and it works as advertised.

Range reloads suck, so your groupings with 'real' ammo should be better.

You didn't state the distance of your targets.

I can't tell so I really shouldn't doubt you, but are those really chips in the HE finish, or are they just brass smudges rubbed onto the slide? I get those on my guns. If they are indeed chips, you should contact HK to properly finish your pistola.

Promags are OK for practice, but use real HK mags for self defense.

No worries, dude, those are just brass marks. If they bug you, you can rub them off with a little CLP. They are similar to the brass marks you see on the brass deflector of an AR15.

Don't second guess your USP. It is a dang fine weapon.:cool:

Nice report on your USP 45. As you get more rounds through it, the better you'll get. If the gun is new, the trigger will smoothen out & break in. Enjoy ;)
