It’s very subjective as I know others feel the opposite, but I’m a big fan of the HK45 over the USP. It suppresses very well and balances great with a can on the end. Plus, it feels slightly better than a 2x4 in the hand, which I can’t say about the USP. I don’t have enough time with the USP Compact or HK45c to have an opinion either way.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Have one and love it. It's been shot a ton and lubed once (barrel only), but never cleaned. Just keeps going. The shorter slide helps balance it a little. I swapped to a set of Heinie suppressor sights.

My HK45c has a threaded barrel. I plan to put a can on it. As for the quoted section here included, I too have numb hands and fingers, not a jock though, and I too have a USPc45, I solved the soap problem with Talon Grips. It’s like having a new and different gun. Try it on yours.

I am a USP fan. So whichever size fits you best. Or say screw it and get a MK 23 because it is likely the greatest .44 host of all time.

I have the HK 45C with threaded barrel. I will be using this as a host for suppression. I believe this pistol is one used by the SEALS. It shoots very well, especially after an action and trigger job by Lazy Wolf.
Thanks for all the help and replies. Check a local shop, HK dealer, today and they found a HK45 compact tactical. His distributor had just received 10 in stock. I was lucky, told they do not last long. Will be here next week. I got it for $799 plus tax.
