    After about a year of renting, range training, and safety. I finally decided on a handgun. The hardest part was finding it in SS, since HK stopped importing SS USP's a few years ago. This was one of the last with an AD build code (2003).

    So here it is...FINALLY! H&K USP 9mm Compact SS. Sorry for the crappy pic, office is dimly lit.

    Looking for some education on some accessories though. I picked up a pair of Silencio Orion ears (28db) and some foamies to go inside. The combo was about $15 bucks. I feel like I should be protecting my ears more in the long term. They are worlds better than the range/class loaners though. Any advice on good muff's?

    Also...it seems like the only tac-light that fits w/o adapter is the HK M2. I know I can get a picatinny adapter from GG&G but hopefully someone knows if there is another light than the M2 preferably LED that exists out there.

    Now I can stop lurking WMD...

    Eh, it's not for CCW, range gun and more of a personal thing anyways. I'm in love with it. :bowdown:

    Said it before, and I'll say it again: the only gun I'm never going to sell is my USP9 Stainless. Very nice choice, dude... :big grin:

    I like the round I can shoot most accurately, plus the USP-c .45 is a larger frame size. :wiggle: To each his own!

    Nice. I had a NIB stainless uspc in 9mm. Never could get myself to shoot that thing. Ended up trading it for 2 guns. One regret that I had about it was that I should have got it in .40, then I would have kept it.

    Nice gun....what made you decide on this particular gun?

    I'm going to be getting one in the near future but I don't know much about all the different models. I do like the looks of the S&W M-P tho.

    Yeah that P30 is looking mighty nice. The HK45 looks tight too... I hope they make a compact for it.
