Couple of things for you:

The V3 in the P30 is the DA/SA with a decocker on the rear of the frame, so if you have the LEM you don't have a V3. Are you shooting from the reset (meaning are you pulling the trigger, gun going bang while holding the trigger to the rear, and then releasing the trigger out only as far as it needs to reset and then repeating)? Do you shoot the USP from the SA position mainly? Have you tried the ball and dummy drill?

Also, have you had any professional training? I ask mainly because the 9 should be easier to drive than the 45; and your groups with the 45 are (no offense, honestly), marginal at that distance when not shooting fast.

Before trading out, I would see if you could get better by doing some good drills. See pistol-training.com. Also, seek out a good trainer and get them to look at what you are doing and correct it.

Good luck, and I hope you are able to find some good answers. You have some quality tools, just need to get some honest evaluation.

I am making a guess, obviously, without seeing you shoot that you are having issues in the long first stroke of the LEM pull. If you are shooting the USP from the SA position, you are less likely to come off target on the shorter trigger stroke. Consistency is the name of the game when it comes to training and getting better, the inconsistent approach the the trigger after the shot could be adding the the issues. Ball and dummy is excellent for exposing what you are doing in that last bit right before the shot is fired. It is great to have a buddy load your mags, and to record your shooting so you can absolutely see what is happening after the range session is over. Also, I would suggest adding some training with a 22LR pistol to reinforce the good habits. Another guess would be that you have a flinch, perhaps from starting your shooting with a 45.

Training is so important as well so you can stop the bad habits, and build on a quality foundation. As with most things, seek out the best trainer that you can afford; it will pay dividends for years to come. Hopefully you did not take offense to my post, I was not trying to call you out.
