    Ordered up a new/used USPc .40S&W w/LEM trigger to replace my G23 as my main carry piece. If I like it enough, I may get a full size USP to replace my G22/nightstand gun. Or may still pick up the P2000 LEM to go with the USPc as they use the same mags.

    I've had a few H&K pistols and like them alot. I currently have a USP40 fullsize for my carry piece. My housegun is a 3rd gen G21 with a tac-light. Goodbye Glock? No way.:supergrin:

    Congrats. That's the way I went. My dept issued the Glock. When I went to school I dumped it for an HK 45. MUCH better. :cool:

    On paper the Glock blows the HK away, but in my hands, the Glock is pretty worthless.

    I just picked up an HK45 last week & although no pistol achieves real "perfection" I think it's much closer than most. If HK only made a hi-cap 10mm and a slim single stack .45 my G20 and G36 would be sent down the road.

    Well we're movin on up,
    To the east side.
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin on up,
    To the east side.
    We finally got a piece of the pie.

    Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
    Beans don't burn on the grill.
    Took a whole lotta tryin',
    Just to get up that hill.
    Now we're up in the big leagues,
    Gettin' our turn at bat.
    As long as we live, it's you and me baby,
    There ain't nothin wrong with that.

    You can't go wrong with an HK, they're very accurate and extremely dependable. Did I mention expensive:embarassed:, but well worth the price and peace of mind knowing that you didn't compromise.

    I've been looking for 20+ years for the perfect carry gun, the Glock (in one form or another) has been in/out of that spot many times. It always falls into the "compromise" category. I am not enamored with striker firing mechanism and much prefer a traditional external hammer. I think the H&K LEM may well be the answer to the revolver type trigger on a pistol I have been looking for, but I might pick up a DAK Sig P229 as well. When my G23 had to go back for the frame "upgrade" (i.e. silent recall) and Glock CS did not perform to my satisfaction, I realized my pistols are too heavily dependent on a single manufacturer and I need to diversify and improve. Glocks will be in all likelyhood be relegated to the safe in the very near future.

    The HK along with Sig were also the only handguns to be approved by Homeland Security in the most exhausting tests to ever be done. Besides Jack Bauer carries one.:cool:

    I had a DAK and couldn't get use to it, so I sold it. I never considered a LEM because I thought it would be similar to the DAK. When I finally tried the LEM, it was love at first pull. Being an old revolver guy, it was like shaking hands with an old friend I hadn't seen in years. It reminded me of the professionally tuned Colt Python I stupidly sold back in the early '80's: light, smooth, with just the right amount of stacking before let off. Love the LEM, hate the DAK.

    Thats funny. because Glock has failed all of the recent government tests and HK has excelled resulting in huge purchases by various government organizations. Nothing wrong with Glocks if they are in rangelike conditions. Not so good in difficult conditions.

    I don't see the big difference in price to be that big of a deal. I got my USP .45 for 850 new when Cabelas was having their sale. Normally they're like 900 or so.

    For that 300 more, I love the HK over any of the seven Glovks I have/had owned. It's like comparing a high end 1911 to a Taurus. Co
    paring Apples to Oranges.
