    Default VP9 vs P30

    I shot, or tried to shoot, the VP9 in USPSA for dozens of matches. Went back and compared scores, I did better with the P30L, and that was as a rookie.

    I’ve owned both. Personally the P30 v3 is my favorite. However if you want concealed carry, I strongly recommend a Vp9sk and you can buy the extended mags if you so choose

    I really do think it comes down to whether you like the striker-fired handgun or the hammer-fired one. They are so similar on every other count (except stippling, in which department the full-size P30 wins). I have both, and after learning the LEM trigger, I prefer the P30.

    I carry more my P2000/USP9c/P30SKS vs. P30/P30S (I have no LEM’s, nor strikers), my P30/P30S are excellent console backup on long drives. I traded my P7M13 for a P226/W.DE back when (and still have the Sig).
    What is your ’interest’ in the VP9/platform?

    P30L V1.5 LEM (in .40): For threat management and shootability;

    VP40: For pure shootability

    HAMMER TIME! = P30. And a safety on a trigger is like putting a small safety push button in the center of a bigger push button as far as I’m concerned.

    Familiarity. My other carry and HD handguns are HK hammer fired with safety. This dog is too old to try and learn new tricks.

    The VP9 is a fully tensioned striker fired pistol with no manual saftey..think about that for a minute..Even a Glock's striker is'nt fully tensioned, that happens when the trigger is pulled, and the striker is pushed back the final bit before the sear drops, giving you a small margin of saftey.

    The P-30 DA/SA, or LEM, has a long trigger pull on first shot, which acts as a wake up call, committing to pull all the way through fires the gun. Hammer also acts as warning device when reholstering, with your thumb on the hammer, if there's something in the way pushing on the trigger you'll be made aware of it.. You have no such luxury with a VP9, something gets caught, or pushes on the trigger when reholstering, and you don't notice it, it'll make a loud noise.. IMO, DA/SA/LEM guns have a level of saftey that striker fired guns don't, and I think that extra level of saftey is worth the effort of learning the DA/SA/LEM systems..
