    First off this isn't about reloading in a self defense situation. I am not quite sure where your response came from unless you are just padding your post count. I was just stating my opinion. Keep it on topic.

    I have no need or desire to pad my post count. I just don't see how your thumb causing the slide to not lock open could be an issue in a carry weapon. Some carry weapons don't even have slide locks. Now if it was a gaming gun I can see it being an issue.

    Yeah, that's never happened in the history of self-defense. Why even carry a 15-rounder?

    Anyway, if one's thumb is riding the slide-lock it's possible that may induce other problems. Either change your grip or get a different gun.

    That is why you spend lots of range time to try out what you are going to be using to protect your butt. That is also why I don't carry the P-30. I really, really like it- but not for carry.

    That's why I shortened the slide release.

    Very rarely do I hit the slide release by accident anymore. Just got word that the P2000 slim slide release is on its way from HK, should take care of the issue completely.

    Here are the P2000 slide release levers. Much slimmer than the stock part. Didn't have one failure to lock the slide through a 1000 rd. class this weekend.

    The huge slide lock lever is the #1 thing I don't like about the P30. Seriously, did they really need to do it that way?? Huge strike against the otherwise great ergos, IMO.

    P30 or the Walther PPQ. Both so darn tempting. Not sure which is "better" but either would be a nice Christmas gift to myself. :)

    Not a problem with me, as I don't shoot with my thumb sticking up like that. I find that a very awkward way to shoot.

    The shorter lever won't solve my complaint. My support thumb touches the lever at the front (the pivot point). Not a huge problem, I just find it distracting.
