Hey guys - posted here a bit but have never introduced myself. I normally put most of my time into ARs (the DI type, sorry to all the piston fans - we can still be friends!). Long time Glock shooter, and recently picked up a P30 and the rest was history :62:

Looks good! I love my P30s. It feels so good in my hands since I changed the straps to fit me.

Just grabbed another 500 rnds for today's trip...I think I'm getting close to being able to handle the trigger well. Want to get close to proficient before summer/instruction starts up. Goal for today is to shoot to slide lock each time. I like the thumbs forward grip and it seems I need to clock my support hand further forward (thumb almost touching rail) to get away from interfering with the slide lever.

Congrats, fellow AR guy here as well (LaRue OBR). I just picked up the exact same pistol last weekend. It does feel amazingly contoured to the hand.

This is my first DA/SA pistol as my other is a XDsc, so the trigger will take a bit of getting used to. Good luck shooting.

When you compare the P30 to the Glock, if you KNOW what you're looking at, the HK is FAR superior to the Glock. Look at the chambers, the Glock uses a tapered chamber while the HK uses a more expensive stepped chamber invented by George Luger in 1910 to get a better gas seal on the case mouth. Not many manufactures use this chamber ~ including Walther.
I'm with you on DI Ars! I think the piston guns are a solution looking for a problem. The average shooter can never gain an advantage using a piston gun unless he has a full auto in his weapon. We didn't have issues with our M16A1s once they figured out & corrected the issues with the original M16s. A good friend f mine has tested almost every piston upper on the market for accuracy. Per David Tubb, a piston upper on an AR15 does not shoot as accurate as a DI upper due to the piston assembly flexing the barrel in a downward movement. With 11 national Hi Power Championships under his belt, I KNOW David doesn't make off the wall statements.

Thanks everyone - M_E, agreed on the ARs!

I followed one of your threads recently on springs, thanks to you a light FPBS is on the way for the P30. Hopefully it'll lighten up the DA a bit.

That's what she said :41:

(Sorry, at almost 26 it seems my maturity level is dropping. The inverse of the norm but oh well!)
LOL. I should have phrased it, "You'll feel [the lighter trigger pull] as soon as it is in". A little joke here and there doesn't hurt. :wink:

Yessir I agree

Very Nice. Welcome.
Thank you sir! Good to see you on M4C as well.

Fast approaching 1,000 rounds. Just 600 this week :62:

Nothing epic, 100 rounds per target, 15 yards. Double taps from draw on left and 1 round every 1 sec on the right. Took me a bit to get used to the draw but I'm getting used to the triger woohoo!

Congrats, Munch. The light FPBS makes a noticable improvement in the V3 trigger. Though the reduction in trigger pull was slight in my V3s, it virtually eliminated the stiffness at the end of the DA pulls. It creates more of a rolling, surprise break. Good stuff.
