    V3 is what you want. I love mine. Bill

    If it's for CC I'd go with an LEM trigger.

    LEM is fine if you like it but it is not for every one and not for me. I am a long time traditional DA/SA shooter and I use that system for every application. Bill

    LEM is ok but I prefer SA/DA. LEM is too long for my liking.

    It's not just the variant you need to be concerned with.
    You want a P30 9mm V3, but make sure it's not a P30S V3

    M730903-A5…P30 9 mm (V3) DA/SA, ambidextrous decocking button, with two 15 round magazines…$1,054.00

    Don't get the P30S, if you don't want a safety!

    V3 is DA/SA variant and can be had with, and without, a safety.
    The 'S' stands for Safety.

    It's no longer than the DA pull, right? At least with LEM you have consistency. Few people really practice in DA mode.

  8. I have the SA/DA (P30S) and at first I thought I wanted the LEM version. The P30S had all the features I liked so I chose what worked for me. Try both if you can and see how you like the controls or lack thereof. The trigger pull is not too bad in DA just have to preactice if you are going to take that first shot in DA. I highly recommend you try both versions if you can and get a feel for each. Good luck!

    I have a P30LS, 40 S&W. I really love it, fits my hand great.
    I also like the SA/DA setup.

    I agree all my HK's are TDA with safeties as my first USP many year's back. My first shot i simply use a press out and it's just how i like mine. Plus can carry condition one if i ever choose to. I see why so many carry a 1911 that way!! I have done some testing drawing and it's fast even for a rookie...spend time and i know it would be a superd carry method!!

    The target below was ~21ft shooting Fed. 9mm BPLE. I was in the wood's across from my house shooting at a medium speed,

    I carry my P30s some but my HK45c the most. Same distance above but faster as a storm was coming. GoldDot's 230gr. The first high shot was my press out...
