I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to add a Compact or Full Size in 9mm to my safe... I can't make up my mind!!!

For carry, compact. For taget shooting, full-size. Simple.

I voted full size because that's what I own. Ever consider the P2000?

What are you going to use it for. If it is for the home, general plinking, SHTF of a safe queen get the full size. If it is for CCW, get the compact.

I don't have a ccw permit, so for the most part it will be a general plinking gun with occasional holstering for wearing inside the house.

full sized then

I carried a .40C concealed for a year or two. It's the only forty I ever really liked, and I was as accurate with it as my 1911's (and nearly as much fun to shoot, too). I'd love to own a full size 9mm, but for concealed carry, I'd say it's the compact.

The main reason I'm balking at the full size is because when I get my ccw I may choose to carry that one.

I can carry my fullsize 45 IWB no problem. But I'm a taller guy 6'3" 220

Go with the fullsize. Its more versatle if you only own a few handguns. It can do the tactical thing and with some trial and error can do concealed work.

I think they make a USP Tac in 9mm to.

P2000 or USPc

I have shot the USPc with head shot accuracy for several mags at 35yds. I don't know how this compares to other non-poligonal bore guns, but its good enough for me.

Try both. The p2k is ambidextrous.

You need to do something about that!

Get both.

I'm not 21, only 19, I have to do private party sales.

If the SEALS prefered the compact, then I'd go with their preference.

Tough choice. Either way you are going to be getting an exellent handgun. I think you could get either without worrying about regretting the decision.

If I had the choice though, probably get the compact. It will still be dead on accurate, but will be smaller and easier to conceal for when you do get your CCW permit in 2 years

If a man could marry a firearm, I would propose to my USPc .40. I carry it as often as I am legally "permitted".

As for a target plinker, it is a fun gun to shoot.

Oh, get both.
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 1:33:57 PM EDT
Personally I'd get the P2000. I just bought a USP and the ergos kinda suck.
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 1:38:57 PM EDT
The fullsize carries just as good as the compact. It's lite and the right holster will hide it well.
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 2:12:34 PM EDT
Full size. I like the ergs of the compact better, but the 9mm Compact jumps off target like a Mofo. I actually prefer the USP45F.

Agreed, mostly.
