HK P30 V3 9mm

I think I found my gun. Sorry to the Glock Cult. I went with my brother and handled a Glock, Sig, CZ, and HK. I was nervous and blushing my way through it. I left with such a feeling of excitement it felt so good in my hands, but would like some feedback from you although I'm pretty set on the HK P30 V3 9mm! Does anyone have this gun?

Hi Doll,

I've not fired one but H&K has a great rep
and that particular weapon has some really nifty
features, it's a little expensive for me pushing
one grand but I'd bet you will love it.

Yes the price is more than I wanted to spend, but I may use to save my life or someone elses and I'm not going to buy a lot of guns I intend to have it for a long time its great in my hands and ready to fire in 3 seconds. My brother also had to confirm I was making a good choice with all the above....

Doll--HK

I don't own a P30, but have fondled them and I love their ergonomics. I do have a HK USP and I love it. It is made extremely well and has never had a failure to function. Also very accurate. From what I hear, this seems to be the norm for most HK's. So, I say go for it if the P30 is the one you like. I don't think you can go wrong. You've already did the most important part, finding a gun that feels good in your hand. A firearm is a very personal thing. Take care, Brad.

Love the word choice "fondled" :) Thanks.

P30

don't have one, but have shot a couple. I prefer the USP if you're going with HK, but thats just my opinion. what sig did you hold? I'm guessing it was the p2022 or p250... if thats the case, I suggest you hold a p229.

Hi yes I did hold a p229 seemed slightly heavier and bulkier than the HK
yeaterday I handled the HK FN model..I am still thinking about it.I am having a hard time because I am letting the lack of safety feature on the P30 make me apprehensive in buying it. Any advice? Thanks.

Advice for you, Doll

Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot.

HK P30 is amazing

I have an H&K P30 that I would NEVER get rid of, it's accurate, has never had a failure to fire or feed in over 3,000 rounds, the ergonomics are incredible and the felt recoil is very very light given the fact that it's basically a plastic gun.

I love it.

I shoot Golden Sabres only in it +P.

I also like the rail to add a flashlight which I keep on it when the P30 is in my nighttable drawer at night. It IS a little large for everyday concealed carry, but there are no drawbacks to this fine gun.

Hope that helps a little.
