I've grown up shooting, both long guns and handguns, and being that I recently turned 21, I would like to exercise my right to own a handgun personally. I've shot several hanguns, including 1911 variants, which don't particularly appeal to me for some reason, and Glocks, which I just don't like. I'm fully aware that they're extremely reliable, but I HATE DAO handguns. SA/DA is the way I'm going to go. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the H&K USP and the Sig P226, or I might go with something smaller, such as the P229 or USP Compact. I've shot both of these weapons, and they feel good to me. My question is to anyone that's also shot them or is very familiar with either. Which one would you recommend and why? Concealability is not a real issue, as I am attending a University, and we all know about the no-carry policies of most Universities. This gun with pretty much just be for my own enjoyment and for home protection. Also, of 9mm and .40 S&W, which would you recommend? I'm leaning towards 9x19 simply for the fact that ammunition is cheaper, making practice more cost-effective, and +P loads offer a comparable punch for protection. Any advice?
