    I own 3 HK pistols. I have never had a problem with any of them and I'm sure that it will stay that way. People that like to bash HK are usually the ones that haven't owned one much less shot one. There are the people that will keep reassuring themselves that their lesser quality gun is ok in a endless mantra in an attempt to convince themselves that they actually believe what they are saying. I don't have to do that. I carry a HK, I carry the best.

    And I only have to say it once!

    HK=No compromise. :cool:

    For CCW, the choice is easy. P2000SK, I sold my old P2000 as the SK is more than capable for CCW distance with out the size.

    I'm still highly interested in a P2000, even thought I bought the 45c and the G19. Every time I go to the gun store I think about just putting it down on layaway. Hopefully someone buys it soon.
  5. Scrap the G19 and get the P2000!

    I've had the USP, and still have a P2000 and P30. All three are amazingly capable weapons with the P30 being the best "service size" weapon, and the P2000 generally better for concealment. They are an evolution of the USP.

    The P30 is, IMO right there with the G19 as the 2 best pistols in production today. The P2000 is very close also.

    Next up for me is the HK45c.

    They need to create a 15 round mag for the P2000. Yeah I know it uses USP Compact mags, but still, they need to do it.

    For the 9mm, there's always a P30 mag. (won't fit flush).

    How's the trigger on the 9mm P30...that is, 4#, 5#, short reset, etc? I haven't been able to find one to feel it.

    Both my 9mm and .40 P30 LEM's were stock V2's and I changed the the springs to make them V1's. And they are both right at 4 lbs and are very nice. The reset isn't as short as a USP or HK45 LEM but for me after some practice and building muscle memory its a non issue.

    Digging up an old thread, do you guys still feel the same about your P30's and USP's?

    I am looking for either a P30 or USP in SA/DA with a manual safety so cocked and locked is an option but haven't decided which. When carried, will generally be outside the waist band in environments where printing is not a concern and may not even be concealed for that matter so would prefer a full size, not compact.

    Yes, they can all be had in LEM (all of mine are).
    Own a USP Compact 45 SS, P30 40 S&W and a P2000 357.
    All great guns for sure.
    IMHO the P2000 is clearly the easiest to carry -

    BTW: Of the three ,
    only the USP can be converted to LEM without voiding the warranty.
    OEM LEM kits are available for USP and HK45/C guns.
    As for the P series? If you want LEM? Recommend you get a factory LEM gun.
    Bottom Line - you just can't lose with any Hk :supergrin:

    How is the mag release different on the P2000 vs the others? Too small?

    I put the extended HK45c mag release on my P2000 and P2000SK guns.
    Problem Solved.

    If you really want a full size gun carried cocked and locked?
    And don't care about concealment?
    Hk USP Tactical with it's match trigger would be my choice.
    (Had mine converted to Match LEM Hybrid though)

    My wife loves her P2000 and has never had a problem with accuracy , function or changing mags with her panted finger nails. Maybe you need to practice more.

    Love my USP's. They are a little bulky but they have been DEAD reliable. The compact is a former police issue pistol which I bought second hand and have shot the P i$$ out of. I honestly can't think of a single issue with either one and I shoot all sorts of cheap ammo through them.

    Don't hesitate to get an HK if you want one. They're fantastic firearms.

    Absolutely I still feel the same way about my P30 and USP's as well as the 45c and VP9T. I recently picked up a VP9T and shot it better the first time than I do my G19's. They are amazing handguns no doubt and you will not be disappointed.

    Here is a thread on an HK USP45 going 297,000 rounds without any breaking.

    The ergos on the P30 and VP9's are hands down the best in the industry! In fact, I'll be letting go of a few Glocks soon in favor of more HK's
