Found a USP Compact 9mm today

Most places out here are sold out. But I lucked into one. I've never owned an HK before, but am looking forward to it.

I was deciding between the USP Compact and the P2000, both for 9mm. I could only buy one, because California has a "one new handgun per 30 days" rule. I decided to get the USP because the decocker mounted on the rear of the slide on the P2000 seemed weird to me.

Just curious - do you prefer the USPs or the P2000s, and why? (I do not think new P30s are available for sale in California).

Congrats.

I prefer the USP Compact slightly. USPs were my first two guns so I have a nostalgic spot in my heart for them. I also don't really care for the rattley right side slide lock lever on the P2000 (and the P30 as well) and I like that the USP can be carried cocked-and-locked and put on safe for loading and unloading and holstering.

The P2000 has the backstrap system and a standard rail but those are minor points to me.

I bought the USP compact for the same reason as you. The decocker. I think its out of place on the P2000 Congrats and a great gun

I prefer the USP Compacts. I like the slide release better. Ergos feel better to and work with my mitts better. I like the P2000 also. I may or may not have some of those too.

I went to the local range on Black Friday to pick up a G19, asked to see the P2000 LEM, as soon as I held it I was sold. Took it out about a month ago, 200 rounds without issue and very accurate. Love it with the exception a lighter wallet.

No experience with the Compact 9 but im sure its a fine weapon also.

Congrats, I prefer the USP Compact over the P-2000, I have both and what I dislike is the right side slide release on the P-2000 it makes a sound some times, both are great guns, enjoy your USP.

I will put one up in due course. We have a ten day waiting period out here. I'll pick it up next week. It's an HK USP 9mm Compact, variant 1. I am really excited about getting an HK. I've always been a SIG Sauer and Glock guy, and have shot an HK once; can't wait to see what all the fuss is about.

Congrats. Great gun. Of those two I pick the USP for the same reasons everyone else are saying.

Plus Jack Bauer used one in 24.
