    I've never cared for the USP. No particular reason.. just preference I suppose.

    They are awesome guns, but I would recommend a 9mm for your first gun. Ammo is cheaper so you can practice more, and there is less recoil, so you won't flinch as much. You need to learn proper shooting before you worry about having the biggest baddest gun.

    I too use to like the USP alot. It was cool to think that SWAT uses them and other elite tactical groups do too, but when I shot my friends and held it for a while, I really wasn't that impressed. There are other guns out there that shoot the same if not better for less money and in my case, fit my hands better.

    EDIT: I chose the XD-40 over the USP40/9mm and the Glock 23

    Despite what you see on the Rainbow Six box, the USP isn't the sidearm of choice of any major special forces group that I'm aware of.

    Delta - custom 1911s
    Marine Force Recon - custom 1911s
    FBI HRT - custom 1911s
    Navy SEALs - Sig P226
    SAS - Sig P226

    EDIT: Forgot to add that if you want the ultimate HK pistol, shoot the P7. You'll never think about USPs again.

    Im pretty sure the USP atleast *was* the sidearm of choice for one group or another. If i find out details i'll post up. but thanks for the detailed info on the other groups.

    You might be thinking about the Mark 23/Socom :dunno:

    They look similar.

    The SEALs do have the SOCOM in their arsenal. From what I've read they rarely ever use it, because if they are going to bring a weapon that heavy with them, they generally grab an M4 or MP5.

    The Mark 23 is a USP.

    Yeah, except the USP is more accurate, more reliable, and more concealable (USP compact).

    They are fantastic. Mine is a KF date code and has thousands of rounds through it, with no visible wear. It's accurate (for a combat gun), utterly realiable (I put 400 rnds of Wolf through it without cleaning it and it never even hiccuped). What more can you ask for? (Besides a better trigger?)
