    ok, i have the money to buy this HK USP 9mm fullsize right now. after shipping and FFL fees it'll be around $540. gun is like new with 500 rounds through it. i have some buyers for my AR upper, which is funding this buy for $440. so i'll have to put down 100 bucks to get the HK.

    my other option...

    somebody wants to trade my AR upper straight across for a like new Beretta 92 9mm with about 900 rounds through it. he also wants to pay me an extra 100 dollars for the scope, rings and bipod that were on my rifle. with this deal, i will come out 100 dollars on top, which will pay for FFL fees, a holster and some other accessories.

    help me! what should i do. i want to make sure 100% that i'm gettin the right gun for my first handgun.

    here are some pics:

    accuracy is pretty important to me. i've heard the beretta's are really accurate. can anyone comment on the accuracy of the HKs?

    man decide which gun YOU want, and then there ya go. Both guns are different, it's you who's living with the decision.

    Most pistols are more accurate than even an experienced shooter can be. Unless you get to a professional level where you would need to get a customized gun to match your abilities, stock accuracy won't matter. Get what feels the best to you. As my roomie has beaten into my head, if it doesn't fit your grip, it won't be accurate anyways.

    yea. i really want the USP. i guess if the only reason i would choose the beretta is to save money, i should just spring for the USP and get what i want. should have it in a week or two, will definitely post pics:bigthumb:

    i wouldn't mind a 226/9, but i found this nice USP for the same price, and i'd rather have that.

    ibedit :noes:

    Now that I think of it, that one was actually a USP Compact.

    I hate .40SW and DAO at any rate.

    And I'm sure it does, must try the 9mm :)

    What if, you're like that OTer that his truck broke down, as he was dropping off the MO to buy an XD. Then couldnt buy the XD, because he had to use the money to fix the truck! LOL :Owned:

    won't happen. i have a BMW, the ultimate driving machine. it will never break. ever. but if it does i have more money to spend on that. i was just bickering about money on this purchase b/c i don't spend money on guns unless i get the money from selling other guns.
