I fired my p2000 .40 cal v2 lem for the first time yesterday and it is a difficult caliber/pistol to shoot. my shots were scattered but that was because i realized i was using wrong for. I then did the proper isosceles and i had a better group. i then moved to the springfield xd 9 sub compact and compact and shot a whole lot better than i did with the .40 at my best. is it that the .40 cal is just a bit difficult to master or do i have to practice more? it does kick a lot harder. i am thinking maybe i should have purchased the 9mm p2000. I purchased my p2000 .40 blind. I fired the usp compact 9mm and loved it. I dont think the p2000 in 9mm would be any different than its ambidextrous and ergonomic grip. I will practice more with the .40 cal because in the end, my group got better. plus theres that trade off, more stopping power = more recoil. But then again I also fired the xd45 tactical and i should almost as good as the xd9's. I just believe that the .40 cal is just harder to master. i will practice more.

I personally find p2000 vers.2 difficult to group well beyond 15 yards. I use the 9mm as a sevice pistol, and I only ran 200 rnds through it. I think its just a matter of practice, practice, and finally practice. I liked the fact that the trigger resets within 7mm of travel but it was difficult to get that into my hard head!

Hmmm shot placement means alot more than the old "stopping power" arguement. I will stick to my 9mm that I am far more accurate with then a snappy 40 that I am not as accurate with.
