    Anybody carry a HK P30 or P2000?

    Thinking of purchasing either or but was concerned about the simplicity or lack of regarding the break down of the pistol for cleaning. Used to own a Sig P220 few years ago and I could break the weapon down in seconds.

    Basic field strip is no problem. Full field strip particularly the trigger return spring, control latch, sear, etc. can be a pain.

    It is as simple as its gets. Easy to clean it also. I use shoulder holster in cold weather, and OWB holster on other days.
    Mine is 9mm, LEM trigger

    Carried a P2000 as a duty gun for about 10 years and 15,000 rounds. Great gun.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

    Ask away! My favorite EDC, hands down. The P30. It was love at first grip. Yes, a bit tricky, at first, to get the slide to release, but once you catch on, it's a piece of cake (unlike the 50 and 60 S&W series!!). I have gone through, no kidding, maybe 25 EDC's over the years but my P30 is all I ever need and use. Accurate out of the box. I'll try and attach a pic of my P30 after a 40 hour Mas Ayoob class in the high desert. 20 hours of instruction and 20 hours of range time in a very windy, dusty, and sandy environment. I purposely did not clean the pistol the entire time to see if there would be an FTF. Not one. People "dropping" all around me with grunge issues. Not me. Here's the P30 and mags after the week long class. The "rust" spots you see are actually where dust and dirt was wind blasted into the gaps. The only complaint I had was the gnarly grips against bare skin when carrying in the summer. Somebody call a wahhmbulance.

    Mine is a P2000sk in 357 Sig. Easy to shoot, clean and carry!

    I had a P30 and liked it a lot. Then I tried a Walther PPQ - and fell in love. Everything I liked about the P30, but striker fired with the best trigger I've seen other than a 1911...

    I've been wondering about the P30 too. I had a Wather P99 in the past, and loved it except for the narrow trigger guard. I rubbed my finger raw shooting it. Darn, why did they make them so narrow. The other thing I did n't like about the Walther is it bulges cases, just like a Glock. I reload, so that's important to me.
    I've seen several video's on the take down of the P30, and it doesn't seem that bad to me. The P30 does seem to have a longer mag release than to P2000, which is a plus. I also understand the H&K's spring set up allows reduced recoil, and about 20,000 rounds before the slide spring needs to be replaced. The P30 has full chamber support. Yea!
