All USPs feature a fiber-reinforced polymer frame stiffened by stainless steel inserts at areas subject to stress and friction. HK pioneered this use of polymer materials in the production of handguns more than 30 years ago with the development of the VP70Z and P9S pistols. The USP control lever, a combination safety and decocking lever, is frame mounted and quickly accessible, unlike the slide-mounted safeties common on many semi-automatic pistols. Using a modified Browning-type action with a special patented recoil reduction system, the USP recoil reduction system reduces recoil effects on pistol components and also lowers the recoil forces felt by the shooter. Variant 1 is double action/single action with "SAFE position.

I have shot and or owned tons of different pistols including a Desert Eagle .50, Tarus .44 Spl Revolver, .480 Super Red Hawk, Glock 30 .45, Ruger SR-9 9mm, Baby Eagle .40, Kel Tech .32, FNH 5.7, along with a boat load more but by far the H&K USP has been the best and my favorite.
The Glock 30 was a little better for concealed carry due to size but as for overall performance, like ability, reliability, and safety I would choose no other gun than the H&K USP or a H&K product.
