    Might also add the USP9c does come with an optional factory LEM, but it is the heavy LEM at ~7.5lbs at trigger break. The P30 comes with an optional factory light LEM at ~4.5lbs.

    Try a P2000. Smaller grip than the USP but not as ergonomic as the P30.

    Leave your VP9 alone and focus on the DA pull on a hammer gun. You need to pull quickly through the trigger, only when you are focusing on the trigger does it feel “too long”. No DA hammer fired gun is going to match a VP9 trigger.

    If you can master a DA trigger pull, you can shoot just about any trigger well.

    Good Luck and be safe!!

    Yes, I will have to leave my VP9 in order to master the DA hammer trigger. I wish I had started with a hammer first, maybe this wouldn't be so difficult! I have been on the HK site several times comparing the pistols available, and they all look great! I was able to "test fire" a P30 (5 shots) and thought it was pretty nice, I just wasn't nearly as accurate with it as with the VP9. Again, I know this is going to take some real practice. I think I'm going back to rent it for a full range run. I will check out my LGS/range again to see if they have any other HK's, but they primarily have striker fired pistols. I would love to try that P30 LEM...that sounds like the best answer. The USP LEM's 7.5lb trigger break might be a bit much for me.

    Although I'm a USP fan (and owner) sounds like the P30 with light LEM is the way to go. See if there's a local gun show in your area or a meet up. What region of Ohio? N, S, E ,W...?

    I'm east of Cleveland. Seems like the P30 LEM's are a little hard to come by. Not many on GB....and even the only lgs I would consider does not have them in stock. The gun shows I have gone to had everything pretty highly priced. I have found a couple on line, just haven't pulled the trigger on one yet.

    Is it possible to convert a P30 V3 to a LEM and if so, is it worth it (cost to make the change)?

    Thank you. But let's say I could score a new v3 for around $450....can that be converted to v1 and would it even be cost efficient?

    Yes it can. The end result will cost you $450 + $170+, you still don't have a factory LEM, and you void factory warranty. Your choice.

    I suggest that you do your research by reading posts on here, especially in the Reference Library subforum.
