    Default Torn between P2000 and P30 9mm LEMs

    I currently own the following:
    P2000sk 9mm light LEM
    P2000 40S&W light LEM
    VP9
    VP40
    P30L 40S&W light LEM
    HK45T light LEM

    I have one LEM 9mm and two LEM 40S&W, so I've decided to get another LEM 9mm. The P30sk is too much like the P2000sk, so it's between the P2000 and the P30. The P2000 is cheaper and is just about the perfect size. The P30 would fill a model gap in my collection and has more sight options. I keep going back and forth between the two, so for those of you who own both the P2000 and the P30 in 9mm light LEM, which would you choose if you could only have one?

    The P2000 remains my all time favorite pistol and gets my vote. Sleek and very easy to carry yet large enough to be a serious, fighting pistol. My P2000 pistols get carried and shot all the time while my various P30 live in the safe. Bill

    One other thing about the P2000 is that it allows for more magazine flexibility, accepting both P2000 and P30 magazines. On the other hand, the P30 has more grip configuration options, and comes in light LEM out of the box, whereas the P2000 will require a couple of spring swaps.

    The P2000 gets my vote as well simply because of the price difference, which I'll never be able to understand.

    I've been going over the same thing. To me the P2000 came out ahead and I'm currently looking for a 9mm v2. I think the P2000 excels as a carry gun which is what I need. For a range/competition gun my VP9 fits that role better.

    It'd be a no-brainer if I didn't have a P2000sk already, thus my dilemma.

    Well I guess the question is what do you want to use it for?

    Not the same calibers.
    My P30 is 40 and P2000 is 357 (although I've got a 40 barrel and never use it).
    Love both, but the P2000 for me is absolutely the perfect size for concealed carry.
    It's the perfect balance of size, weight and ease of shooting well.

    I expect the prices of these to even out relatively soon on P30 9mm (probably similar to P2000), I've noticed them already coming down… finding V3 9mm Gray models at sub $700 prices now.

    My guess is they have in fact competed too closely with there own product in the VP9 release (against P30 9mm as they are very comparable in MANY ways)… how many average people will see the additional value over the VP9 in the P30?

    I would think that given current trends in the industry, many would choose striker fired over hammer given the choice. Just seems to be the way things are headed, though there will always be diehard hammer guys. Bring on VP9SK...
