Just got back from my second range session with my new P30L/9mm. First session/appx 300rds, gun felt good, had Small strap/panels on. Trigger reset was noticeably "different" from ANY pistol I've ever shot before. Almost a two stage trigger on the reset. Just came back from second range session/400+rds, put the size Medium strap/panels back on, didn't notice the reset difference AT ALL. I've been shooting forever so I know EVERY gun is different, takes getting used to, but dare I say the P30L could become a Favorite? Gun shot like a laser! My 92A1's still my favorite, but VERY impressed with my first HK. I hope all the Newb shooters considering HK, aren't deterred by all the online BS about "Horrible" triggers, etc... After a little getting used to, who knows, maybe a favorite of yours also?

If I know I'm going to do my "test" over 600-700 rds at one time, I will wear a mechanics glove on my strong hand, this also makes the reset 4-5 mm shorter, and helps my thumb pad from getting mildly sore with .40.

If it's an HK I probably want one.

Knowing that I enjoy shooting my P30L, and it also being my First HK, would I enjoy the HK45 as much? Thinking about getting back into .45, I read nothing but good about HK45. I was hoping that model was a SOFT shooter also. Mulling over HK45, or Sig 227elite.
Yep. I own HKs, Sigs, CZs, Berettas, Springfields, and Walthers, and they all differ in terms of grip/purchase, trigger management, and sight picture. That's what makes shooting these pistols so much fun. It's the learning curve that never goes flat.
Have fun with your P30L !!
We own both, ups and downs for each pistol.
I'm not gonna go over each thing that is good and bad. The P227 tactical is actually my wife's. She loves hers. She don't have to reload as much as much with 14rd mags,as they have a nice 14+1 extended which comes with it, but they stick out like the Hk45c elephant for baseplates. The P227 is fun to shoot, as is my hk45.
You really can not lose with either. Both are fine firearms.
I have no issues with my P30's trigger (v3). It's by far my favorite pistol to shoot now. But I also don't mind my stock 2009 M&P 40 trigger either. Maybe I'm just weird.
You won't be disappointed.
No issues here either, sure I short stroke the p30 series more than I should, but they are for shooting, range time.
P227 is nightstand duty/protection.
