I do volunteer work at the Santa Monica PD, and their issue sidearm is a USP 45: they tried other calibers but feel that the 45 is most effective when they really need it. The USP 45 is a bit more solid feeling than my 9, but it also rattles a bit, kinda odd. Low recoil for a 45.

David, which USP do they use? If you have shot one (a 45) what did you think?

I've been thinking about getting a 45...
