    Default P30 vs P30SK

    Is there much of a difference concealing the P30 vs the SK model. I am leaning to the full size but haven’t carried a P30 before.

    It'll depend on body size and clothing you are wearing. You'll get a bunch of different answers and none will be wrong so go to your nearest LGS and try them out with a holster and a good belt, only you can tell us if there is a difference concealing. Buy the SK when in doubt since it cannot get any smaller, you can always buy more mags that will be compatible with the SK if you feel 10 rounds is not enough.

    13 round HK mags in SK give full purchase and little more firepower. Grip length close to P30, obviously shorter barrel on SK. I have both, they're sweet, SK little easier to carry.

    The grip length is often the distinguishing feature for concealed carry. Barrel length is the easy part to conceal

    As Superstar alluded, it depends.
    I have both P30/P30SK and in IWB the SK barrel makes a difference. In fact, I carry more my P2000 vs. P30, it's smaller than the P30 and larger than the SK. But 10/13/15rd makes the SK the most versatile.

    Default P30 vs P30SK

    I’ve carried both, and the P30sk is easier to conceal. That doesn’t mean that you can’t carry and conceal a P30. It’s just a little easier as the handgun gets smaller.

    OMG yes.
    P30 (LEM 40 S&W) I shoot wonderfully, but it is a little large to conceal.
    P30SK (LEM 9mm) is dreamy.

    BTW, for some reason I can't explain, I actually prefer the P2000 series.
    And carry a P2000SK regularly (357 Sig)

    Also the P2000 (LEM 357) is noticeably smaller and easier to conceal than the P30 for me.
    Your mileage may vary

    P30sk v1 in a vedder light tuck holster for me right now. Very comfortable. Carried my wifes sig 365 and glock 43 which were like carrying nothing. Eyeballing the Sig 365 SAS for myself when it comes out.
