Advice on a HK

For the longest time I have been obsessed with the USP. I love the look of it and really have wanted one. Well I got a chance to handle one in 45 and I was heart broken. It was just too big for my hand and for any type of carry.

So my question is, what is like the USP, ascetically, but a bit more on the slim side. Any cal.

Try the hk45 or 45c,
think of them as updated USPs.
the grips are ergonomical.

FS USP 9mm or 40 S&W are slimmer that a USP 45 ACP.
The new HK45 is very slim if your heart is set on 45 ACP?
The HK45c has a slim grip as well.
And a P30 with its S/M/L side panels and back straps will fit your hand for sure.

Ive got a USP .45 Compact and I carry it everday sometimes with no problems. Its smaller than the full size. The newer model HKs like mentioned above are nice as well especially the grips..............

Buy the USP and just grow bigger hands. Fortunately I'm 6'5 and the USPs are perfect for me,. I'd recommend the P30. Go try one out at you LGS. You can mod it to fit your hand. I actually sold my P30 because it was too small for me. My fingers kept hitting the slide release.

If you like the USP, then for a carry size the USPc is are ally good size. I carried one in .40 for a couple years.

I had the USP .45 and loved everything about it except the way it fit my hand. Traded it for the HK45 and that fit like a glove.
I now have the HK45C and it's the best all around .45 caliber HK, but the full size HK45 is the better range gun.

Take a look at the HK VP9. It is comparable in size to a G-19, carries quite well for CCW duties, and has a fabulous trigger.

P2000sk or the P2000 make great CCW choices.

I often carry my USP 45 compact. It is just about my favorite.

It is not a tiny gun, but smaller than the standard USP.

The HK 45/C/T/TC. They all are very similar. I switched from a USPC 45 to my current 45CT and love it.

HK 45C if you want a 45 ACP.
If you want a 9mm Look at a P30 or a VP9 for a little less money..

And the grip backstrap and side panels can be changed.

Yup. Also has 3 different backstraps (S, M, L) and 3 different left/right side panels. So, it's one of the most customizable handguns around.

Trigger is excellent.

Thanks everyone. A semi-local shop has a P30 and a VP9 in stock. I should be able to check them out in the next week or so. Just judging by the dimensions listed by HK they should be close to what I am looking for.

The HK USP 45 is a big gun! It's one of my favorite to shoot but the only one I don't carry, and I carry a Glock 21 or HK45T every day. Check out the HK45 too while your are looking, a lot like the P30 and VP9 only a tad bigger, but in 45.

Advice on a HK

I owe a P30 and my buddy has a USP .45. I can't grip the USP well - it's too big for me- yet I shoot it better than him lol.

P30 is very comfortable. I'm eager to try a VP9 and may go with that for my CCW rather than a Glock.

I have two older USP models in 40 S&W and 45 ACP, love them both. Also nice as I am a left handed shooter and controls can be setup for me easily.
