    After a longer than anticipated wait, I picked up my USP compact. Took it directly to the range and I absolutely love it! Probably had the best shooting session in a long time. The gun is amazingly accurate. Can't wait to go out again tomorrow.

    Nice choice. I like my USPc enough that I almost bought a full size to complement it (went with a G21 though)

    Thanks for the comments.

    For you guys that have one. When you carry it, do you carry it set in da mode w/ the safety on? Basically I put in a full magazine, then release the slide. Take the mag out, top it off and put it back in. Then drop the safety from on to decock...then back to safe. Is this the right procedure? I'm just affraid when the hammer drops when decocking that the gun might go off....even though it shouldn't. :noes:

    I carry condition 1 for a couple years now (I think). Never had a problem with decocking, but I don't do it very often.

    I don't see why you should decock it if you're going to be using the external safety anyway :dunno:

    Oh, and I have one of those handalls for it - I like the grip much better that way.

    Decocking has led to one well-published AD that I know of. To check if your gun has this problem, rack the slide with the mag out, put a chopstick down the barrel and decock. If the chopstick flies out, you have a problem.

    If I remember correctly, the only time that has happened was when someone changed a component (match trigger system?) on an older USP with a part that didn't match the old-style decocker system and allowed the hammer to hit all the way down to the primer on a decock. In any case, it wasn't a stock USP and it was an older version.

    edit: clarity

    AG is the date code

    A = 0

    G = 7

    07

    Conditon 1 is cocked w/ the safety on correct? I am just beginning to carry so I want to be as safe as possible until I get used to carrying a weapon. So I figured decocked with the safety was a good way to start out...then move to cocked and locked. :dunno:

    correct. loaded chamber, with the hammer back, with the safety on.

    you can carry it however you'd like. That's one of the beauties of this weapon :x:
