    Well I definitely do not want to void the factory warranty. I was hoping you would answer that question without me asking. Thanks for all your info. Very helpful.

    One more question. I assume it will be personal preference in getting the P30 LEM vs the P30SK LEM, right? I know it's odd, but I tend to shoot the smaller guns better.

    If going from striker to hammer, LEM will have a smaller learning curve than DA/SA.

    As a female shooter, I find heavier guns are frequently easier to shoot than lighter guns because the lower felt recoil is less taxing. If the weight difference is extreme than the weight might start bothering you but overall, I’ve found weight usually helps more than hurts if handguns of same caliber.

    By smaller guns do you mean shorter length or grip? If you shoot the shorter gripped pistols better than the P30sk is probably the way to go.

    Yes, I am actually more accurate with the vp9sk than with the vp9. Same with my sig p320....most accurate with the subcompact. I know, it is totally opposite of what is "normal." I like them all :), but just have slightly tighter groups with the subcompacts.

    If you can, you should try a P30sk with the LEM.
    We are lucky enough to have one at a local shop. We are going to pick it up for my lady.
    I shoot a P30 V3 and wish I had done the LEM. Perfect world to me.

    Having a p250 myself as a trainer for new shooters to see muzzle movement with trigger pull is a great tool with lasertrainers, But that's it for my use of having one.

    Now to give some advice, having shot both the vp9sk and the p30sk lem, either one is great, the light lem is the way to go but unless you train with it it can be to light for some people, my cousin who owns the p30sk doesnt train enough and now wants to change to a standard da/sa trigger to avoid any mishaps as his new wife also carries his p30sk. Dont buy something you aren't comfortable handling. Personally he should just give me his p30sk and buy a new one, he is a stickler for warranty.

    One thing you can do at the gun show is ask to tryfire to get a feel for the trigger, most vendors, at least down here dont mind that way you can get a feel for it then order it online and save some money.

    There is a gun show coming up in a couple weeks that I have been told is larger that the one(s) I visited. I'm hoping it will have a selection of HK's for me to handle so I can make a final decision. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone with a P30 or P30sk LEM to test fire. They only had the p30 v3 at the range for rental.

    I’m not sure why the USP9c or the P2000sk aren’t on the list. I don’t own either, but if a small compact DA/SA or LEM are being considered wouldn’t they qualify? Also, maybe when you compare LEM versions it doesn’t matter anymore, but the trigger on a USP9 is much better than the trigger on the P30 models by most people’s opinions. Wouldn’t that carry over to the smaller models?

    Looking at the three on the HK website and comparing them, the P2000sk might be something to consider? It appears to be the smallest.

    I hope to look at any and all HK lem's that are available to handle at the upcoming gun show. I'm not really ruling any of them out, however, the p30 seems to be a little less expensive. The idea is to learn how to shoot a hammer fired so I would like to do that as cost efficiently as possible. If and when I can master it, all bets are off and I will join all of you in having one of them all !!!

    I strongly recommend not buying an LEM trigger firearm until you at least are able to dry fire one but preferably spend some time shooting one first. People seem to love them or hate them. I love them, personally but have saved three people some money by letting them shoot mine before buying...they hated them and went the non-LEM route. Don't be in a hurry!
