H&K USP40: Glock Killer?
Ive been a subscriber to Gun Tests for three years, and really enjoy your magazine and your editorial courage. Too many of the popular gun mags are afraid to tick off their advertisers. You arent because you dont take advertising. Keep up the great work.
Your comparison on the S&W 4006, Glock 22, Walther P99, Beretta Model 96, Sig P229, and H&K USP40 was of great interest to me. The first pistol I owned was a Glock 22, which I sold in order to buy an H&K USP40. There were several reasons for my decision to switch:
The Glock does not have second strike capability. You must cycle the slide to pull the trigger in the event of a misfire.
