    Anybody on here got one? I have just about talked myself into getting the P30S in 9mm in variant 3. I've never had a DA/SA only SA, but I held this one and it seems like it would be a good'n. I've also only heard good things about it, anyone got anything they don't like about it besides the price tag?

    You know what I'm going to say! Really, I don't know that much about them except that everyone who picks one up loves the fit. And yes, they are proud of 'em $ wise. But comfort your self in knowing you got what you paid for. Plus you can look down on ALL glock owners! :D......... DING DING DING !!! Here we go!

    I have a P30 V3. I like everything about it except the trigger feels a little spongy. It does not have a crisp breakover. Accuracy wise, the pistol is better than I am. Having purchased it for primarily range use, I wish that I would have bought the P30L, with the slightly longer slide.

    It is built like a tank, yet light, nimble, and a joy to shoot. You could do a lot worse...

    It has never had a misfeed or FTF. It even fired a round out of a Glock mag that I mistakenly inserted...

    Make sure that you buy the model that suits your needs. They look the the same, but I would not want a V2. Some are DAO, but the V3 is SA/DA. There is a V0 thru V6.

    Well, picked up my P30 LS V3 9mm w/ night sights and the matching knife from my FFL yesterday. Wow, the ergonomics on this thing is great. Definately one of the best if not the best I've felt. I'm liking the ambi controls since I'm a lefty. I havn't got to shoot it yet but will be shortly. After I shoot it some it may even take the Ultra Carry II place off of my hip, we'll just have to see if it all goes well. Here's some eye candy...

    You'll hear negative things by spiteful HK hating trolls!

    Other than that, some people find the trigger pull and take up rather heavy and long but, hey, it's a service pistol.

    H&K make quality products and to my knowledge it doesn't have subparts made in the Phillipines, and it's made in Germany (not sure if the U.S. plant is pumping them out yet) and typically most products exported out of Germany are pretty expensive. It all adds to the price tag.

    They're no better or worse than other top quality firearms. By that I mean to say that after a certain quality and price point it has to do with the skills of a shooter. Like a top golfer could take a cheap Wally World golf set and score an eagle on a par 5. And, yes, part of owning an H&K involves owning the mystique of the brand like a BMW.

    Like the USP, the P30/P30L is based on the Browning design and even shares the same grip angle like a 1911 instead of, say, Glock which has a more angled grip. The "S" (P30S/P30LS) goes one step further and places the controls similar to the 1911 configuration. This isn't a coincidence since I read there was a lot of American influence in the design of the USP on which the P30's are based. Well if you want to get academic you can say the P30 is based on the P2000 which is based on the USP.

    It's also one of the few guns out there that sports BOTH a decocker and frame mounted safety making it adaptable to different carry conditions.
