Was at the Pasadena gun show and there was a P30 there for $769+tax and I just couldn't walk away. I was talking to the dealer and another guy started looking at it and I just had to buy it. Now the only problem is that I don't want to shoot it because I have this crazy feeling that this one is going to be a serious collectors item and will fetch top dollar in a few years. I might just have to buy a second one.

All the low serial numbers were released to Europe, unless this example has some unusual markings...I doubt it has any collector value at all.

Go shoot it and enjoy it! :)

Well, collector value-depends. I'm an Hk collector, so I'd like to get one someday and simply have one in the collection. I just don't see the value going up and they will actually, more than likely, go down in value over time. The only reason they are right now in the $800 range is because they are new and people want the new things. Just like the P2KSK's; they were high as hell when they first started coming out-now I see them in the upper $500's to lower $600 dollar range. Same thing will happen to the new P30's out there.

The only real way I see them going up in value is if the mag ban hits again and you have one of these with two or three "pre-ban" mags. That will definitely make them more valuable.

HK's are made to be SHOT!!!!! I would say that if they start building them in the USA then the German ones will be worth more but other then that don't worry about it. A P7M13 for example that has been shot but in great condition gets the same amount of money a NIB one would. Did you buy the gun because you like it or because your trying to make a buck in future? I buy what I want to shoot, don't plan on selling unless I have to.

I have a USP Compact stainless 9mm, I don't wanna shoot that either because I think one day it might go up in value. But then one day I remembered that it's an HK!!! I should just shoot the crap out of it and enjoy the pistol for what it is, a good shooter!

You know what you need for your P30? A crap load of ammo!!!
