Since my last post I have purchased the USP compact 45 and the USP 40. These guns are WONDERFUL. I shoot the Tul ammo in the 45 without a hiccup. People that shoot these like them even better than my 1911 loaded Springfield. That includes the gals! I get the biggest kick out of taking women out to the range, watching them overcome their anxiety, and then get attached to my USP's. Forget the FNP 9, which I love, and the 38 special, the Ruger Blackhawk 357! Just gimme the HK, the women say. Smooth shooting, nice feel in the hands - actually no gun is too big for a woman's hands when they hang on with two hands. Anyway, chalk me up as another HK fanatic.
