    I owned 2, very good gun for everyday carry. If you get the V1, you have plenty of options how you want to carry. Cocked and locked in single action, cocked and locked in double action, double action and no lock, etc. Very concealable, reliable as any gun you can find.

    Have you shot one before? Try and shoot one first before buying it, what may be good for me may not be good for you.

    Stock DA trigger is pretty long and heavy, the SA trigger is not bad though. I did shoot mine once at a steel shoot and it was not bad

    The compact is not very compact.

    like, compared to other compact handguns? the compact definitely felt smaller in my hand than the full size one

    It's not a G26/27, but I'm a small guy and I conceal my USPc with no problem. It all depends on the equipment and attire (and I have shitty equipment even).


    My USPc has been flawless so it's an extremely reliable gun. Like others have said the DA pull isn't good, but that's not an issue for me because I don't shoot it in DA... only SA which I like.

    It's a more expensive option than other guns, but they can be found used for good prices if you look around.

    I sold my G19 to partially finance my USPc. I love my USP, but I couldn't imagine carrying it. It's maybe an inch shorter than my Springfield Marine Operator. I love shooting it at the range and have it as one of my home defense weapons, but don't carry it. I'm still trying to find the perfect carry gun.

    CDNN has some of the best prices around for used and new HKs. I don't have my CDNN catalogs nearby so I can't tell you what they go for used but I want to say in the mid-$500 range.

    I bought mine, a stainless version, for $580. I don't recall seeing any stainless compacts going for less than that.

    Am I just retarded or does CDNN not have any actual guns on their website?

    USP grips are made for operators. Make sure you like bricks before you proceed.
