    Open to Suggestions: HK P30S V3 or SA EMP 9

    As stated in title, I have been looking at two pistols, the HK P30S V3 and the SA EMP 9, and cannot decide. It was a much tougher choice before the EMPs went up in price recently. The HK has a rail and the EMP does not. They both claim to weigh about the same. I am currently carrying a Beretta PX4 Compact in an SHTF Gear ACE-1 holster, and I really like it. I am just getting that itch for another pistol.

    Recommendations and/or suggestions welcomed. Please do not suggest a G****. I have tried them and do not like them.

    ps: Am left-handed, please do not suggest anything that is not lefty friendly.

    If you can't decide between the two, why are you asking for more suggestions? What are you trying to figure out? If the question is which one for cc, the EMP is a better choice.

    Can comment of the HK, but I really like my EMP9-shoots great and carries better.

    For carry, I would give a H&K P2000 a look at. It is smaller than the P30S. Better yet check out a P2000sk.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

    I have both, the EMP is easier to carry concealed but the P30 is so comfortable to hold and shoot, IMO, go with the P30.

    I own and daily carry an HK P30 V3 (Only difference between the one you are looking at and the one I have is the lack of a safety lever on mine). I would recommend a UBG Holster! I love the way it fits my hand (fully customizable), it's accurate and check out some of the stress test videos on Youtube; it's good to know what a firearm, especially yours, is capable of withstanding!

    HK all the way!

    As someone else already posted, the HK P2000sk is a monster and probably the best HK made for CC.

    Check it out, unless your mind is made up! I LOVE MINE!

    P2000sk .40 with the light (4.5#) LEM trigger. No external safety, fully ambidextrous, very CC friendly, super reliable and very accurate. I have no problems calling this my go-to gun if my USPf .45 isn't in arm's reach.
