Gotta shoot jacketed.
H&K all the way.
Look at the USP as well as the H&K45. Both are sold in either full-size or compact. Unfortunately they are pricey, you can save some money going to used, but they are still pricey (the upside is they have great resale value).
However, CDNN is having an incredible deal. You can get a USP compact in .45 for $700 brand new. You can get the full size for $10 less
. They don't advertise their firearms online anymore but you can give them a call I am doing so in about 10 minutes, CDNN
A copy of the catalog can be found here
. I don't think they had H&K45's advertised but I could be wrong. You are going to have to spend more if you are only interested in the tactical or expert, but the regular or compact are fine weapons. I am ordering a USP compact in 9mm shortly from them. And now looking at the catalog again I am in pain, severe pain, the P7 is like $700, normally about twice that
too bad I don't have enough money for both right now = /
Both the USP and H&K45 (I'm almost positive same with the H&K45 anyway) you can get like 9 different trigger setups. Variant 1 will give you a manual safety and de-cocker, carry the gun however you want (novel idea huh).
As for the difference between the USP and H&K45, I'm not positive since I'm not in the market for a 45 yet. You can get the USP in .45 of course, there are supposedly some improvements in the newer H&K45, but I also know many people still prefer the USP. Differences are like in grip and the H&K45 might have switchable back straps, relatively minor stuff like that.
