    Question which Hk do you carry ?

    do you carry an Hk? if so i would like to hear from you, i have a P2000 in .40 as my EDC, concealed. i am curious as to what other Hk carriers chose as their EDC and why. which model, what caliber, which fire control group?

    i got mine last Xmas and it was a struggle to pick just one to buy. so i want to know what others have chosen for concealed carry.
    i choose the P2000 instead of the SK because i don`t like sub-compacts made from larger guns and the SK grip is too short for me, my pinky has nowhere to go and it just didn't feel right for me. the USP compact is also very popular, if you choose this after the P2000 became available please explain why,i choose the P2K over the USP compact because the latter is bulkier and uses a proprietary rail, also i like the Decocker on my SA/DA version 3.

    there are many fine guns out there and i have carried a few other brands, but for the purpose of this thread, i don't care about the other brands, just the Hks. there are plenty of other threads debating the "best" gun and "best" caliber.

    P30 9mm LEM or P2000sk 9mm LEM, I've carried the P30 more simply because I've had it longer..I supect that will change with the sk (only had it a month or so).. Pinky gets modestly smooshed on the sk and it's also why I have left the magazine extension on, I get all three finger in and it fosters a very positive grip. LEM triggers are the only way I go on HK pistols, after knowing what a Sig SRT is like..no way. Grown to quite love the LEM, for self-defense its quite a solid choice. Nothing too stiff, but everything deliberate, very safe way to go IMO.

    The P30 is a great gun and is fighting with my long-beloved Sig P228 for being my favorite. For self-defense, the LEM trigger is the best on the market. For those carrying DA/SA (from any manufacturer), the recent event in FL, if nothing else, should have taught that absolutely everything about your carry decisions will be scrutinized if you should ever find yourself in a position like Z. At that time, responsibly carrying some flavor of DAO will be a very wise decision.

    are you saying that LEM is better then SA/DA for court room purposes? why? i would think that a DA first shot would be better, in case they tried to say it was an accident/hair trigger. not that it should matter.

    Any variation of DAO, like LEM, will always be better if one should find themselves in a courtroom and someone is questioning their use of a firearm.

    My EDC is a P30 .40s&w, imo it conceals well but I am 6,4 so my frame helps.

    The weapon feels great in my hand and I like the adjustable grips. I find that I am accurate with the p30, I used to holster in the crossbreed super tuck but I bought the X5l tact light and laser and bought the Raven holster to accommodate the light, jury is still out on how I adjust to that setup.

    OK, here's my 9mm, with a grip and the Tucker IWB. I like the whole set-up. The holster has been well broken in since the pic.

    Care to expound on this? Your statement makes no sense to me.

    Oh, and I've also got an older H&K 4. Interchangeable barrels. Cool pistol that I sometimes carry in a shoulder holster.

    I'd prefer to let you do your own homework and arrive at your own conclusion. My statement is known as fact in our industry and, frankly, it's just common-sense. There is a segment of the gun population who can't possibly fathom that not being able to pull the trigger as fast as humanly possible might be a good thing. They're typically young and prone to decisions that might not be optimal. You can accept it or find your own answer.

    "My statement is known fact in our industry?" What industry would that be? Your info says you work with computer systems? I am trying to understand where your train of thought is coming from on DAO being the ideal system for a defensive shoot to alleviate liability, if you are going to drop a statement as factual please back it up with some type of rational or reason for your belief.

    It's a shame that the poll only allows one option! I routinely carry a full sized USP9 but it splits time with my P30S. Both are carried Condition One. I have two USPs, one of them has a Match Trigger. The other has night sights so usually I carry that one (but not always). When either of those options is too large I carry my Beretta Nano.

    That is a slick HK. Looks like .22, .32. .380 and 9mm is that correct? Nice set up.
