Heckler & Koch USP Compact 9mm

This is the H&K USPc 9mm.

This is my primary carry weapon. It’s durable, reliable, accurate, and just the right size for me.

H&K offers the USP (Universal Self-loading Pistol) in a variety of calibers, and is available in full size and compact models. This compact 9mm takes a double-stack magazine. 9mm USPc magazines are available in 10 and 13 round capacities. I carry this in a Galco Summer Comfort IWB holster. It’s quite comfortable and conceals well.

This particular USP is a “variant 1,” meaning it is DA/SA with a “safe” position and control lever (manual safety/decocking lever) on left side of the frame. This means the user has the option to carry the pistol in a single-action mode (cocked and locked) with the manual safety engaged, or decock the pistol and carry in double-action mode. Double-action only (with or without manual safety) and right side or ambidextrous controls are available in other variants. The USP is also available in .40SW, and .45ACP.

The HK USPc 9mm is a surprisingly accurate pistol, just like its big brother pictured above. I’m not a great pistol shooter by any means, and I have no problems putting 5 rounds of 9mm in a 3″ group at 25 yards with this gun. Keep it clean, use good quality ammo, and it will serve you well for a lifetime.
