Is spring fatigue an issue with cocked and locked handguns held as such for home defense?
Not with an HK.
Should be no problem
They are built like tanks
and kids around? Un-chambered is less likely to be a problem.
Just the wife and myself around, no problem. Just like a 1911. Kids around? Left in double action mode or locked in the safe unless in my immediate control.
It has a firing pin block, no better or worse than any other pistol of similar design.. well maybe better (I own one)
I would leave it hammer down, safety off which is how I use my DA/SA guns for SD as intended.
I used to have a full size USP .45 as my night stand gun in this condition with a WML.
I carry one of mine cocked and locked and the is Light LEM
On nightstand right now, USP40, hammer down, safely off, every night!
Round in chamber, hammer down, safety off.
I converted my 45 USP compact to variant 3 because it was always in this mode. Now I don't worry about the safety accidentally being on. I don't miss the safety.
My HK45 sits on nightstand most of the time, one in the chamber, hammer back and safety on.
My nightstand gun is a USP 45 Tactical-one in chamber, hammer down, safety on.
That's the beauty of the USP. It can be carried just like a 1911 if one chooses (and has trained the way). When I carried one I had the hammer down and safety off
