I'm seriously debating my next HK - currently have the DA/SA HK45 and P30S V3 (9mm). I've had so much fun with my P30 that I want to get a P30L. I was originally torn btwn the two versions in my original purchase. Though I don't expect to find too much difference btwn the weapons, I would like to perhaps add something new to the mix. One thought was to pick up a LEM version (which I had another thread on for input); another thought would be to keep it DA/SA but to change the caliber. Am I missing anything not having a .40 other than more expense rounds. Additionally, I know from my reading of the forums that many of you have both P30 and P30L's (not to mention HK45 and HK45c). What prompted you to get them? Did you keep them the same variant such as LEM, or DA/SA etc? I also suspect that sometime I'd pick up a vertical shoulder holster for the HK45 and I believe I've noted in my readings in this forum that it could accommodate an P30L as well. Any thoughts and input would (as always be appreciated). I've picked up a lot of knowledge from this forum and am lucky (I guess) that the gunshops in NVA don't have too many HK's to look at or I'd probably have even more difficulty in deciding btwn USPs, P2Ks etc etc.
