Pretty maids in a row. USP45 compact, fullsize and expert.

Fullsize 45ACP and 9mm.

45 Fullsize and Expert.

45 Compact and Milt Sparks VersaMax II

Twotone P7s. 10-ring and I swapped slides to see what it would look like. The one on the right looked pretty sweet but the one on the left just looks...wrong. Slide was also too shiny and the picture just doesn't look right.

Twotone P7 and USP45C.

Benelli M1 Super 90 and P7M8. Benelli. So easy to use, no wonder it's number one.

I've got one that looks like the middle one in the top picture. Of course that switch thingy is on the right side of the frame where it should be. ;)

Nice "combo" collection you've got there, Skunkmeista' and Le 10-Ringa'..:D :what: :what: :neener:

Now, how do you do that cheerleader squeal again ? :neener:

February 15, 2003, 09:18 PM
:uhoh: See what happens when there's too much down time between stages at an IDPA match? :rolleyes:

February 15, 2003, 09:30 PM
Nice pictures!

February 15, 2003, 10:37 PM
Until Santa brings me a digital camera, I'll have to use a generic picture of my one and only H&K firearm. :)

hard chrome with brushed flats

I actually like the black slide 2 toned P7 better.

February 16, 2003, 12:59 AM
All my good pictures are on my broken computer's hard drive. Here's a picture of my USP .45 Compact from my last trip to the range with it.

February 16, 2003, 01:00 AM
I happen to be working on a background for my computer and her is my HK91... I admit it its actually a SAR-3 :( I just wanted to be a big man, enjoy.

February 16, 2003, 01:03 AM
Damn, I thought I had the image thing down, but heres an address if the thing doesn't come up.

Sorry about the dirty guns and the dusty Camelbak. It was between stages...we didn't have time for Beretta pictures either :(

Cheerleader squeal. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee as high of a pitch as you can while rapidly clapping with fingers perpendicular to terra firma.

The studio also cost me upwards to $20,000 and it still don't look as good as Olegs!

Only HK I have left. :)

February 16, 2003, 08:00 AM
Here is my usual (gotta make a new one) HK showoff pic... A semi-only HK33/53 or a P9S or an M13 will be joining soon, not sure which...

February 16, 2003, 09:04 PM
Gunhead, where's the P2000?

February 16, 2003, 09:10 PM
Skunk, didn't he say that he sold it ??:confused:

February 16, 2003, 09:48 PM
Noooooooo! He sold it???? :confused: :(

SteyrAug, do you have the "optional box magazine and drum feed mechanism" for your HK21E ??:)

February 17, 2003, 01:58 AM
Got a feed box but it gets in the way, I usually fire from the shoulder. And I like the look and sound of the belt dragging in the dust behind me.

Really unerves the people trying to hide from me. :D

February 17, 2003, 02:06 AM
Also, did you pay full "today" prices for that , or did you buy it when they were around 4K (or less) , if you don't mind me asking ? ;)

February 17, 2003, 02:11 AM
I don't think there is a "today" price, I haven't seen one offered in some time. Mine is privately held (not a dealer sample) and I got about 14K into it. Probably worth a bit more today.

Ken LOL glad I'm not the only one with an antique phone.

February 17, 2003, 05:29 AM
Skunk: Gunhead, where's the P2000?

Yeah, I know it's a shame... I wrote an article about it, then I sold it. :uhoh:

If I ever get another one that will be the variant without the decocker and with the 20 Newton CDA config.

February 17, 2003, 06:29 AM
last night at the range the guy next to me had a whole bag of hk weapons
usc-45 carbine
couple of usp's
and a few I couldnt identify,they were shooting rounds and brass all over the place,had at leat 300 rounds for each firearm and spent at least 4 hours there shooting at targets of makes some really good looking firearms,and I didnt notice not one ftf,fte,or any other malfunctions the whole time they were there.
man,I gotta get me a few.

February 17, 2003, 08:53 AM
I'm recoil sensitive, but handle my Beretta 9mm Ms without a hitch. I'm just curious what the kick on the compact H&K .45 is like given that's it's a small gun with a bigger caliber. Anyone?

God I hate this state...:banghead: :cuss: :fire: :barf:

February 17, 2003, 12:03 PM
I personally don't think recoil is all that bad on the 45C. I actually think HK's idea of "Compact" is a little skewed- it's nearly the same size as my full size USP 9mm.

The Colt Defender... now that kicks, and is much smaller than the HK.

February 17, 2003, 01:08 PM
I've shot my USPs alot & have some trigger time w/ a couple USPc 45's. From what I can tell there's not much difference between the two. The compact does have a little more muzzle flip, but no big deal...esp. if you practice ;)

February 17, 2003, 01:13 PM
Are the compacts affordable? I know the full size can be costly but if I could buy that too, I would. As I said, I'm not too concerned with the recoil. I would practice a lot by the way. Just wondered if a .45 has a really big bang or similar in feel to the 9mm. Thanks. :D Now, if only I could convince H&K to sell here I'd be golden. :scrutiny:

February 17, 2003, 01:22 PM
Gunhead, what do you mean? I don't know anything of the CDA, etc.

February 17, 2003, 01:22 PM
Hi Mastrogiacomo!
I find the USPc in .45 to be a very comfortable shooter - it's my carry piece when I'm not packing a wheelgun. It fits in my dinky girlie hands well - the area between the thumb/finger is thin enough to make the grip secure & comfortable.

The "bang", when compared to a 9mm is "different", but not any worse for me. It seems less "snappy" and is more of a "push."

The USPc normally runs around $700 in my area. It's high for a Tuppergun (and high for me), but when I was searching for a new carry piece (after a disappointing experience with the previous one), I didn't care. I don't put a price tag on my life, and I definitely don't regret buying it. :)

February 17, 2003, 01:31 PM
Doesn't CDA= LEM here in the states ?? ;)

February 17, 2003, 01:35 PM
When I paid for my Beretta compacts, they came to slightly over six hundred considering the state tax was factored in. I don't mind saving for a good gun, but just curious how it would feel to use one in the .45 caliber. Looking forward to finding out first hand though...:D Appreciate the info. Now I'm really jealous!:evil:

February 17, 2003, 01:41 PM
If anyone is intersted CDNN Investments have Full Size USPs in 40 S&W for about $399.99 and stainless for $429.99.

February 17, 2003, 01:45 PM
Skunk: Gunhead, what do you mean? I don't know anything of the CDA, etc.

The CDA (Combat Defence Action) version of the P2000 has no decocker and the trigger pull weight is always the same. The standard P2000 has a heavier trigger pull after decocking. The trigger travel is identical on all models.

I fired both versions, but I recommend the CDA. More simple and elegant, the decocker is IMHO pointless on the P2000 - unless you are (let's say) an average cop with just basic firearm handling skills, or you want to convert the pistol to traditional DA/SA.

Maestro you have good tastes too bad you're 3000 miles away, between 10-ring and I we have all the Cali-legal HKs.

February 17, 2003, 01:55 PM
Tell me about it -- and it hurts too. :rolleyes: When I get working, maybe I can afford to move where the restrictions aren't so hardcore like they are in Massachusetts. The only three guns that have appeal for me are the Berettas, H&K and Sig. I can get a P220 but it kills me to no end that the H&K and Cougars are out of reach. Where's that winning lottery ticket when you need it? :scrutiny:

February 17, 2003, 02:09 PM
BTW IMO the USP45C is pushy but manageable.

I rather have gone with the 9mm though.

Ken LOL glad I'm not the only one with an antique phone.

The newer phones in the market are pieces of junk. I have washed/dried mine many times with no problems.

Kenneth Lew

February 17, 2003, 02:42 PM
Yeah, but the new phones are so much more TACTICALLER!

February 17, 2003, 03:14 PM
Wow! Some of you guys take great pics!
Guess I have to start playing more around with my camera, and start cleaning my guns. ;)
I use mine... Some of yours look better than a NIB gun!

February 17, 2003, 03:24 PM
what is your guys' favorite USP model, if you could pick only one?

February 17, 2003, 03:48 PM
Levelhead, awesome photography! :cool:

Trimation, if I had to do it all over, probably a USP9C. My favorite USP changes every day and will probably end up owning them all except for the .40s. When I leave CA I'm going to get a Tactical just because it's illegal in CA, says Tactical on it and Korean SWAT ladies dig them.

February 17, 2003, 04:30 PM
trimation, I prefer my full size USP9. High caps and commonality of ammo with my MP5.
