So I went to the range today for the first time since turning 21, (last week), and was sick of shooting revolvers so I didn't even bring those. I ended up renting a USP 9mm, Glock 34, Sig p226, and Springfield 1911. H&K USP (9mm) I started out with a USP fullsize in 9mm, with very high expectations, but ended up being pretty disappointed. I didn't mind the grip angle, but I thought the grip itself was really incomfortable. The stippling dug into my fingers in front and got really annoying after a little while, and I didn't think the trigger felt that great either. I thought the sights just downright sucked ass, but that could have been the individual sights on this one. I think this thing would be a waste of money for me, all things considered. I shot pretty bad with it too. Glock 34 I felt the opposite about this gun as the USP. I didn't think I was gonna like it that much, but I figured I might as well try a Glock while I was there. I ended up loving it. The grip angle was very very comfortable (I guess some people complain the grip is way too slanted back), and the finger grooves felt really good. I didn't know what to expect with the dao trigger, but It was surprisingly light, and I loved it. The sights were great too. Awesome gun IMO. SIG P226 (.40) This thing was awesome as well. The grip felt like it was custom made for my hand, and the trigger was excellent as well. I've always liked how these things look too, it shot great, and the sights were pretty good. I was somewhat surprised at the recoil though, never shooting a .40 before. It was pretty snappy, but I got used to it. I really want to buy a used one of these in either 9mm or .45...loved this gun. Springfield 1911 "loaded" This gun fuckin rocked. It had a rubber hogue grip on it with those awesome finger grooves, so it was comfortable as hell. It felt absolutely awesome too shoot...the .45 had way less recoil and noise than I expected, and I felt it was even easier to manage than the .40. I really wish I had the $700 or so to pick up one of these. I shot the best with this one. The 1911 and Sig were my favorites. (i can't decide which one) I should have tried one more gun and gotten the Sig in .45, but they make you shoot their ammo in their guns, and the ammo prices were outrageous. ($11 for a box of 9mm?! I probably would have liked a P220 even more than the 1911. I don't really care for .40S&W that much. The Glock was very close behind them though. And I doubt I'd ever consider buying a USP. Not worth it. Overall, awesome day!
