Ok, in recent months I have acquired a P30, P30L and P2000sk. The sk is now my EDC, replacing the P30. Now I am at the point that I think one has to go. Which should I get rid of? The 30L only has about 300 rounds through it while the P30 has about 2k but I don't have any holsters for the P30L.

Whichever one I keep I will probably put an X300 on it and make it a nightstand gun.

HELP!

I'm adding a TLR-1 to my P30L and using it for exactly your purpose. I held a P2000 yesterday and can see why that model would be your EDC (the P2000sk is just too small for my long hands). If you HAD to sell one I'd probably let the P30 go.

If your going to make it a nightstand gun then I recommend the 30L. Especially for a light. I've always had excellent night vision so I don't bother with them but night sights are fantastic.

Keep the P30L and ditch the p30. I always thought my USPc would have been perfect with a little longer slide/barrel... Thank you HK for answering that with the P30L. I guess I like all guns too much, cause I would rather keep the example I like more, and then buy something else... I can't afford (I really hate admitting that) to own a whole lot of guns. There are a couple I want, the P30l being one of them. I am VERY picky when it comes to my high end toys. The P30L at first didn't interest me either... the more I looked at it, the more I read about it, watched videos of it, yeah... That's a good pistol.

Keep all of them! Why must you get rid of one?
I COULD keep all of them but I found another must have-- a 1919 Winchester 52 with a Lyman 15x scope and I need to at least partially fund it. Besides, I have a lot of safe queens.

I would keep the P30 since you already have a holster. Should you not be able to carry your P2SK for any reason, you'll have a carry set-up available in the P30.

I agree with this even though I think the P30L is the most beautiful gun ever made. Whatever you do goodluck.

Of course I think you should keep all of them but if you were to get rid of one, it should be the P30. The P30L is actually just a full size by any other manufacturers size standards and it shoots like a Cadillac rides. While I like the P30 I like the extra 1/2" from the L more.

OK OK OK, twist my arm. I'll take the L off your hands.

If you want to maybe put a can on it one day keep the 30. If not, the L is the one to keep. You don't need a holster for a nightstand gun.

For a nightstand gun I'd keep the P30L, it will balance that light better too. You can sell the holster with the P30 since you won't be needing it.

Y hand gun for home defense? It should be for CW of backup, SA 223 /308 with subsonic ammo (if you care about your ears)is much better option

I have both a P30L and a P2000 SK. I would sell the P30 because the difference in size between it and the SK isn't enough to justify keeping it and selling the P30L.

P.S.- If you don't have a holster for the P30L, buy one. :wink:

Which should I get rid of?
As you are the owner of both, which one do you shoot better with?

I owned a P30L for a while, put just over a thousand rounds through it before trading it off. Now have a P30 and have found it shoots better for me, I found the extra 0.6" really didn't do anything for me. Sounds weird, but I am able to achieve better groups with the P30. Plus, the Insight light I had for the P30L fits just fine on the P30.

Since you have holsters already for the P30, and especially if you shoot the P30 well, it seems like an easy decision... sell/trade the P30L.
