I would try p30 9mm the grip is a lot better and more slim than the HK USP compact.
1- Yes it will ! First thing you need to do is find a place to shoot . If it's indoors you want tonnes of makeup air blowing through. The lead you can't see can kill ya' as well.1- the range will ultimately decide.
2- I am female and have relatively weak hand strength.
3- I am looking for a firearm for personal protection and that is just fun to shoot as well.
If you came up to me at our gun counter and presented these requirements... I would show you some high quality single stack 9's... but with HK in your sights, I would suggest the P30sk and suggest you start off with the "small" side/back panels, and go from there.I think I know the direction I need to go - the range will ultimately decide. However, I'm still in research phase> I am female and have relatively weak hand strength. I also have smaller hands overall. I am looking for a firearm for personal protection and that is just fun to shoot as well. I really like the HK USP Compact 9mm. I am still open to suggestions to investigate. One kicker--I'm in Cali so we have some restrictions I appreciate any and all advice and ideas you provide.
3- Get something that fits YOU whatever it is !
Definitely go to the range and try them.
I just purchased my first guns last year. Female, no previous shooting experience, small hands.
Started with a 1911 but then a HK p30 (da/sa w safety).
I love the p30, adore it. I call it my security blanket. Lol
This year I picked up the p30sks. I also sent it to lazy wolf guns for a complete package (trigger, reset, nickel.) It's incredible.
My p30 is going next to Rick.
You'll know the right one when you spend some range time with it. I knew the p30 from the moment I grabbed it, the range just confirmed it was the one.
I can carry both but the p30sk is way easier. P30 is likely a winter carry.
I use the Dene Adams carry corsets. Conceal is amazing, I can easily get to my gun and they are sexy (as a bonus)
Side note, I just picked up the usp expert (9mm) and the grip tore up my hand. So make sure you put quite a few rounds downrange to see how it feels for you. I still love it, but ouch. Lol

Thank you!! Yes, that holster is from Savoy Leather - they hand color it. They have a lot of different options but I love sugar skulls lolV1X3NV that p30 is gorgeous. Is that leather behind it the holster? What the heck, where do I get one of those?!?! Too cool.
