Finally took the plunge and bought my first HK, a P2000 V3. Can't believe it took me this long to realise what I was missing.

Watch out around here, other HK enthusiasts like to look down on us because of where we are from. Other then that, it's a good forum.

Got my P2000 v3 last night and took it out for test this morning. It shoots real well, fairly accurate only because I can not hit anything with any pistol. It was a bit snappy but it is a 40, not a 9. Only other 40 I had shot was a Glock 22 and I think I like this P2000 better. I will need to try the different back straps later, getting ready for a week long fishing trip to Canyon Lake.

Congrats and enjoy your P2000!

I think V3 is the way to go...at least for me.

Well I got back from the lake, the weather was great, my boat and motor ran great, had no problems going anywhere on the lake but the fishing was terrible, and i even lost a Fly reel, that is another story, So today I went to Cabela's and bought some Hornady 155gr XTP's and some 155gr Berry's bullets and loaded up 100 with some winchester 231 for a trip to the range tomorrow. Hope the weather holds. Gotta get used to this 40cal. Been shooting 9mm lately.

Welcome to the forum, and no one will look down on you for your state, we do look down on you state though.

That is true we are south of Kansas, I tried those loads with winchester 231 and they seemed pretty weak, so I am going to get some Hogdgon Longshot and give it a try. Shooing this P 2000 I want to use Hornady XTP's but I do not want 180gr bullets, so I am stuck with 155gr bullets.I shot some Federal 165gr loads and they were pretty strong. I am going to try to get my loads that strong. And a range report, same as usual I can hit the target but that is all.

That did the trick, Hogdgon Longshot makes that p 2000 sit up and take notice. It feels more like shooting a 357mag. I even started to get a group on the target.
