Those HK pistols (the USP you mentioned, though I'm a real fan of the P30L) are very, very nice. But I don't own one, and it is solely because of the price tag.
Glocks, XDs, and M&Ps are all nice handguns, but they're all rather similar. You may want to take a look at some other options that will give you a bit more variety, including pistols from CZ
, and Beretta
. I'm not necessarily trying to point you away from polymer frames and toward steel (I have and love both), but it's something you need to decided for yourself.
