Try a USP!!!
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
Try a USP!!!
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.

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!
