    Default Dark Side Feeling Imminent... Can Resist No Longer

    Going against the grain here given current market trends away form larger calibers... but I have been wrestling the idea of moving away from my USP Compact LEM in 9mm I have for EDC. I had been planning on making the move to either the P30L in .40S&W or the HK45 Compact. This current magazine promotion HK is running has gotten the priority level determined for me to just get the better deal of the two currently.

    That being said, I am not convinced that I really am getting an 'upgrade' in the P30 series over the USP Compact. Does anybody else here feel this way after extensive use with both series offerings? I mean, having a picatinny rail integral is nice but I have MR-08 Surefire adaptor for USPC. Everything else is up for debate it seems, depending on how you look at it.

    Regarding the HK45C, I really like a lot about it but the price tag and capacity. If I get one the best I figure I could do is about $700 roughly for a good shaped used example. Then me being the kind to want to know the state of my weapon I'd worry internals were not up to par and send it off to get examined by an armorer. That is much more than I can swing right now, so not an easy choice either way.

    this may not answer your question but I carry a HK45C as my EDC, and I love it as a carry gun.

    If I was to ever move off of my USPc 9mm for EDC it would most certainly not be for a P30L especially in 40. For me it tends to be about caliber. I own so much 9mm that I don't want to go down the rabbit hole of buying other calibers again- been there, done that. The only HKs that tempt me in another caliber are the Mk23 & HK45C. But there is so much to love about the USPc. I owned the P30L in 9mm and ended up selling it. All of the P30 series & the VPs negatively interact with my long fingers/hands. I can't get a locked back slide on an empty mag with any sort of regularity. I know, it's my grip. I'm just not willing to chop my fingers off to make them work.

    I lean more towards my USP .45 compact over my P30sk in 9mm. I still have both in my carry rotation.

    Well, I gone and done it now... grabbed a new old stock P30L in .40 BD date code for $545 shipped on GB. Bittersweet since this marks the end of my life with my USP Compact, unfortunately can't keep them both right now.

    You know those stories on here where a guy sells a pistol and regrets it. This is the beginning of that story.

    Just submitted the 4-mag offer for my P30S-9mm, perfect timing as I'll be converting one (with a sleeve) for my P30SKS CCW.
    Neither have 40/45 in the house, but was just at the LGS and picked up 200rds of S&B 45 with no gun to shoot it with.
    Cry once... No rush but now I have no choice but to join the Dark Side with a HK45C. I see the German BG/BH dates are starting to ship out, just in time for Nov/Dec deals (and stock up on ammo in the meantime).
