I just bought a USP tactical in .40 and I wanted to ask how manageable is the recoil. All the ranges near me didn't have one to shoot, but I was able to get my hands on a USP .45. My hands weren't even big enough to feel comfortable with the .45 but I was amazed at how little recoil it had compared to my 1911! I know that .40 is said to be snappier than the .45's "push", but I also hear a lot that the .40 feels like 9mm in a "full sized" gun like the USP .40, not to mention that the HK boasts it's "recoil reduction". I felt this reduction in the USP .45 and I couldn't even get my grip around it properly. The .40 feels real good in my hand so I feel this is a plus. Will I be dissapointed? I have a G19 and the recoil is nothing. I hear a lot that the .40 in a compact gun is what's harsh, but that .40 in a full sized will feel like 9mm in a compact. Does this sound about right...?

Plus if anyone out there has the knowledge, what is the advantage about a tactical model compared to the others besides the adaptation of the silencer, and adjustable sights? They give no info on the official website.

Thnx to all

I shoot an HK .40 in USPSA a lot. The recoil is just fine. The Tactical model also includes the Match Trigger kit.
