But, I've always heard great things about the USP, specifically I'm looking at the USP Compact, probably in .40. It's roughly the same size as the Kimber, and would give me 3 more rounds to use in the magazine.
Welp, let me put it this way. My HKUSP45C was replaced by a Kimber UCDP, that totally and completely outclassed it in every conceivable way. My HK is a safe queen and hasn't been shot in years. The Kimber, OTOH, is my EDC for over 8 years now and that's not likely to change.
If you're anything like me, you'll be wasting your money.
