    I'm curious if their hostile environment finish is incorporated into any of their other weapons after the USP series? I'm considering a P2000SK in .40, and I can't find anything regarding the finish.
    Otherwise I'll be purchasing a USP Compact .40 or .45.

    I would think the only hostile environment to consider is the
    open end of a 40 Gold Dot for short barrels coming at you
    pushing that 180 grain bullet somewhere at 1000fps:D You
    are kidding right? Or is this another, any form of being near
    any form of lead, will make ya sterile at somewhere around
    year 97:laugh:

    Hostile environment finish? Is that like San Francisco during a Brady Campaign march?

    A Pelosi rally?

    A Chicago Tribune Office Party?
