Re: Couple of new pistols
Ok, back from shooting a few hundred rounds through the USP. Now let me start off by saying that I'm not a fanboy of any brand of firearm, I love them all. Shooting my USP for the first time blew my expectations out of the water, it was extremely accurate and very controllable. The recoil reducing spring set-up they designed into the firearm works very well, the firearm recoils up and slightly back but it is pretty light compared to the snappiness of the .40 in my G22. I can't say enough about the accuracy, I was using blazer ammo and I was dead nuts on what I was aiming at. I'm sure if I used top shelf ammo it would be a gdamn lazer gun. I had absolutely no problems with the 200+ rounds I fired this afternoon, and I don't foresee having any problems thousands of rounds later. The only issue I have is the trigger pull in DA mode, it's a very long pull, but SA mode is great, I'm sure a trigger job would make it just fine.
All in all I am happy about purchasing the firearm, and the price tag does not bother me. It is expensive, but to me, well worth it. Any other questions you may have, ask, and I'll answer the best I can.
