Anyone tried the H&k USP Compact 9mm?
Every once in a while its fun to venture outside the box (the Glock box) by trying a different brand pistol. I yearn for a good quality 9mm in an easy to carry configuration. While I was looking around today, I came across the H&K 9mm lineup.
The USP Compact model looks like an excellent pistol with features I would enjoy. A polymer frame with stainless slide is very appealing. This pistol has a safety feature that I haven't studied, but I'm interested in an external safety. The suggested retail is about $1,000.
I'd like the benefit of some first hand experience with H&K, and info about the USP Compact would be much appreciated.
