I was wondering if you guys had any advice for me. I'm getting my CCW and want something smaller than my 4" XD-9. I've narrowed it down to an H&k but I can't decide which to buy. A local sporting goods store has them both brand new for $739 plus tax. I'm 6'5" and am pretty thin if that makes any difference when choosing a carry weapon. Here is what I do know. I like the decocker on the USP better. And you can carry it "cocked and locked" unlike the P2000 which has no external safety. But I like the ergonomics of the P2000 slightly better. I heard that the USP Compact doesn't have the mechanical recoil reduction system then the P2000 and full size USP. I'm leaning towards .40 cal S&W. To be honest it's mainly because I don't want my only two handguns to be the same caliber. I unfortunately don't have the opportuntity to shoot either one. Neither of the two gun shops that rent have ANY H&K's. Someone told me that the P2000 is a bit "snappy" in .40 cal. Has anyone here shot both of these guns and can tell me which has less recoil? Or if it's bad enough that I would be advised to avoid it altogether in .40 cal.? Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
