I have been a previous HK ccw'er and somehow let them get away a few years ago. I recently found a P2SK on a website and had enough! The gun got bought by me and now I am waiting delivery. I can now (soon anyway) say that I have returned to the fold. Finest guns made and can't wait to get the newby out to shoot it. :cool:

I have never strayed too far, always on the lookout for a swell deal and finally got it. By the way, I did get a P30SK a while back. It somehow did not stand up to the P2SK. Whats with the silly sights? Anyway, I will report on range activity.

My first was the 40 in LEM, (bawl, bawl) looks great and more importantly, the gun was a dream to shoot in every way. Traded for a 9mm LEM when Arthur started to visit more often.

Welcome back! What silly sights? And what brand did you cheat on HK with? Lol
The P30SK, and others, came with optional night sights that aren't night sights. (Phosphorescent) Packaged in an "LE" deal with three mags. Although not a big night sight fan, I just had a moment of weakness. Glad they don't put things near the counter checkout at a gun store LOL. I tried Smiths and (gulp) a Glock. Carrying a Kimber Micro 9 now. The P2SK I ordered has REAL night sights and three mags also. Shipped Tuesday, arrive via mail Thursday.

Got my P2SK and went to the range for the first time. 225 mixed rounds to include Fed 147 HST HP and nary a slip up. My plan is to take 100 rds of 124 FMJ and 100 or so 124 JHP and shoot those along with 100 rds 147 fmj and 100 or so 147 jhp to decide on my carry ammo. I firmly believe I should practice with the grain bullet I carry. I like the HST rounds and those will be my carry rounds, just don't know if they should be 124 or 147. The 147 and 150 Federal HST will not feed in my Kimber Micro 9 using Sig mags. They are about .15 longer and I don't know if that impacts the feeding process. I intend to post rage reports.

It will in your Kimber... but then, that's the least of most Kimber issues. A total non-event with HK pistols.

Your preference for HST ammunition is well-founded. Its pretty much the best quality (and performance) "self-defense" commercial factory ammunition available today.

You might want to think about staying with the 124gr bullets. The 147s shoot rather high on common-issue HK sights at 25 yards; I have had five 9MM HKs- USPc, P2000, P30- and all shoot the 124s exact POA/POI. I actually carry the 124+Ps, which give a bit of extra velocity which is always good when having to shoot meat.

That said, the 147s work better (IMO) as a duty round for the po-lice, because the one defect of the 124 HST bullets is that they do NOT stay solid when shot through safety glass. This is because they are shorter than the others, and simply cannot be manufactured to ensure stability going through safety glass... which really shreds conventional projectiles.

All THAT said... as a retired LEO, I can carry pretty much anything I want to, and the 124 grain +P HSTs do pretty good against unprotected meat... which, as a "civilian" who will only shoot someone who is trying to hurt me or mine, is what I need.

FWIW, I know more than I should about all of this, because I work at a crime lab and examine bullets that come out of corpses and almost-corpses. The HST, along with the Speer Gold Dots, are the best I've seen in almost seven years of examining what we call "meat bullets". Much of what you'll see in gun magazines about "the best defensive ammo" is utter bull****.

Thanks LSP for the insight. I am also using the 124 HST in my HI Power that I sometimes carry. The HK2sk using the HST has become my EDC. I appreciate your input.
