    Default Officially moved from "I just want a handgun" to addict.

    About 8 months after my first ever gun purchase of VP9, now it has a little brother. Drove all over creation yesterday to almost every gun store in the area (going to finish that journey today) trying to pick out an AR-15, and brought home a P30sks V3 instead. Also another 1000 round case to join the 1500 that were just delivered the other day because I have no self control when there's a moderately good deal.

    Now I can't really carry it yet, as it was an impulse buy and I have no holster. The VP9 aliengear seems to work, but having a holster the same size kindof nullifies a lot of the benefit of the smaller gun. Any recommendations? I'm thinking stealth gear. VP9 is horrible for appendix, but maybe the sk will work. I'd also like to find a laser/light-bearing IWB eventually. I'm also kindof surprised that it's pretty much the same weight as the VP9. Does the hammer really add that much extra weight? I also didn't get the LE version like with the VP9, and I must say I LOVE how much brighter the sights are for daytime shooting. They even seem to hold their charge pretty well into the night. I will miss the notch for one-handed slide racking though. Not that I ever used it, but it's nice to know you can if you need to.

    Now to clean it up and test drive it. I figure you all know well by now what a P30sk looks like, and there's nothing special or custom about mine, so I have no pictures. Maybe if the range trip reveals anything interesting.

    Still after the rifle, and already lusting over more HK and even a couple non-HK handguns. Yep, I never had a hope of only owning one handgun and maybe one long gun.

    Now it's all cleaned and lubed up, but I'm feeling super sleepy. Don't think I'm going to make it to the range today.

    Hey that red coating on the recoil spring doesn't serve a purpose does it? Because it came RIGHT the hell off on the initial wipedown. It's also gone from my VP9, but it took a lot longer. Also I don't need to worry about the finish already being worn off in spots do I? Frame rails and where the trigger rubs against the frame are bare metal out of the box. The back of the RSA where it mates with the locking block is fairly worn also.

    Check out the Stealth Gear IWB mini. Proving to be a great holster so far.

    Congrats on your new SK, I love mine.

    I use a Comptac Infidel IWB for the P2000sk for my P30sk. (already had the holster from my P2000SK.). As long as you don't have the retention cranked down a lot it works fine. They do have a new version for the P30Sk but I havent tried it yet.

    I have a light on my P2000SK, and use a IWB from MultiHolsters for it, it's a bit bulky but works well. You can customize the holster on their website to get the right pistol/light combo.

    Also, I hear you on the addiction. I'm at 8 HK pistols now (and many more from other brands), and keep wanting more.

    I use an Ozark IWB Kydex holster for my P30SK LEM and love it. I CCW it at about 3:30. Very easy to remove holster with P30SK in it while on belt which is really handy in the car and to put in and out of the safe. Comfortable too.

    It will only get worse until you go to a 12 step program and find you have to buy guns for your close friends.

    Congrats on your Koch addiction and your latest P30sk. I just picked one up last week in V1 and love it. Had it out at the range for a second run yesterday. Absolute tack driver. I pull and point and bang, its over. No hesitation and no misses. No need for practice with it as it gets it done every time.
    I use an inexpensive Winthrop IWB leather holster. It is very comfortable and for the price, it can be replaced in a few years should the leather become funky.
    Save up your cash. There are many more HKs in your future.

    Do you know if they customizes their holsters at an additional cost? I might get a vp9 soon but I'll want a threaded barrel for the obsidian I got that's in jail right now.
