    My new carry pistol arrives this week boys! I was going to wait to post, but I can't.

    I got a screaming deal on a HK USP Compact in .357 Sig. I've always liked that round, and now I got something that will shoot it. :banger:

    It's my 4th HK pistol, and 2nd USP Compact (1st was a .45)

    Here's a sharp pic of one from Ken Lunde, whom takes some really good photos!

    I hear that's a good round. I've never shot a gun chambered in it though.

    It's peppy. They have consistent energy around the .45 caliber area and are high velocity. They are fairly consistent from make to make unlike .40 S&W.

    Alan,
    Nice looking "toy". Hope you enjoy it. What kind of velocity does it generate and with what bullet weight? I'm anxiously waiting delivery on another pistol also. This one will be a Wilson Professional (my fourth) with 4" barrel, stainless frame, and black slide. Now we know who likes HK's and who likes Wilson's. Maybe we can get together sometime and punch holes in paper.

    Good shooting and be safe.

    Alan. You'll have to let me run a few rounds through it at Red's so I can tell if I want to buy it in a month when you are getting something else!

    :rofl: Indeed... the ATF is going to come after me for being a dealer at this rate.

    Nice, what caliber?

    I've owned:

    USP Elite .45
    USP Compact .45
    P30

    I really liked the Elite. The trigger on that thing is nice, and the long barrel makes for good accurate shooting.
