    Default Decided to let my p30sk go

    no, it's not a fatal design flaw. LOL

    it just hurts my hand. specifically, my support thumb. i'm left handed, and i have short fingers and thumbs. this puts my right thumb right on top of that big pivot point for the right side slide lock lever. that's where my grip naturally falls. i can push my thumb way forward, but it's an odd feel, and not as firm a grip. i can raise my thumb, but now it's riding the slide. i can leave it on that pivot point, but very quickly the skin is getting rubbed by it. it raised a blister once

    ya know, i really wanna like this gun. i like the idea of carrying a hammer fired pistol. i like the LEM trigger. it's a quality build. but hey, a gun isn't gonna work for everybody. i absolutely love my vp9sk, and i'll continue to carry it. the lever on it's right side is so thin it's flush with the frame and i don't have these issues. i just liked the hammer advantages of this gun. oh well

    That is too bad. I use thumbs forward grip and I don't touch any auto loading pistol frame/slide/control with either thumb keeping thumbs parallel to the frame and slightly away from it.

    i do too, but my thumb is short enough that i can't seem to get it forward of that pivot point. like i said, it's not so bad; the vp9sk is probably my favorite pistol

    This monstrously oversized lever on BOTH sides is the first reason i am not even loking at the gun, and considering older models.

    I love my p30sk and am also left handed. I have a very high thumbs forward grip and am always on the slide release on my p30's and vp9's. I don't shoot my sk a whole lot but haven't had any issues, but it's always best to have the gun you feel most comfortable with, especially for carry!

    I was skeptical of the USP line at first too, until I finally tried one!

    I replaced the right side slide lever on my wife’s P30Sk with the short lever style. I’ve actually done this on all my P30 LEM guns.
    The P30LS LEM guns I have came with the shorty.
    IMHO, this is a must do mod for lefty shooters.
