    My cousin carries one and loves it!
    I carry a USPc .40 and anytime you change to a H&K it's an improvement JMO

    That would be me. It is the most comfortable gun I have ever carried.When I draw, the sights are right where I want them and it shoots great and is very accurate. I have never handled an M&P 40, but of all the guns I did handle before I bought this one, the P2000 fit me best. The only problem with it is that my wife wants to take it from me.

    ALWAYS wanted one. Just not in the cards.

    I just checked out one yesterday. The sights came up great, the gun felt AWESOME. HK reliability is great, being a lefty the ambi slide release was an added bonus, but I just do not like the mag release....Maybe it's just me but I scratched it off my list.

    The mag release is different, but you get used to it really quick. Before I got mine, I carried a USP 40 for about 8 years, so I was already familiar with all the controls.

    Yup. Same, here. Can't actually manipulate the release, due to my finger not being able to exert enough force that far away from the grip. Had they put it in the "standard" position, I'd have a pair of the P2000SK's right now.

    I carry the P2000SK in .357 SIG V3 (Decocker)w/night sights. The pistol has been a joy to shoot and carry. I used to carry a P2000 in 40 with the LEM trigger. The SK is easier to conceal for me.

    Yes. I have 2 9mm and 357 Sig with a 40 barrel. I'm going to take them to LFI in October.
    This is flat the most comfortable handgun I've ever carried. I use a Wild Bill's No Such Agency holster, IWB. It presents quickly. I'm going to put MMC adjustable sights on the 357 Sig as that bullet and 40 don't shoot to the same point of aim.

    I have 34 handguns, love them all, carried a Commander for years, then a Sig 229 and I could carry them all, but the H K is something else.

    My suggestion, if you reload get the 357 Sig if you can only afford one, then a 40 barrel, put MMC sights on it and rock.

    OR the 9mm and carry hot. A little advice, if you go 9mm get some of the cheap CDNN 40 Compact mags. Why? Becuse you can put 12 9mm's in it. A little trick during the AWB.

    HK P2000 .40 Decocker model with XS night sights- love it.

    Carry it every day in a Smart Carry holster with an extra mag.

    Comfortable. Concealable. Accurate. Reliable.

    Use both your thumb and your finger.

    I carry with DoubleTap +P 124gr and you won't catch me Jonesin' for .40.

    Or better yet, the P30 15rd 9mm mag.

    I swapped out my carry Sig P239 for an HK P2000SK 9mm v3 and have no regrets. I love the Sig, but the HK carries two more rounds and will accepts the 15 rd mag (and is nearly 2 oz lighter to boot, even with the extra rounds).

    The P239 is mondo accurate, and the SK is on par (both better than the shooter).

    Note I recommend the 10rd flat bottom mag with the SK for carry instead of the "finger rest" ones that come with it.

    It carries great in a K&D Defender.

    No can do. The circumference of grip I can get my fingers around is a fairly small one. (Think Kahr K9.) Even on the P2000SK, I simply cannot reach with any finger, adequately. I certainly cannot wrap all fingers around such that both finger and thumb touch the release pads, let alone sufficiently well to generate any force. Wish I could.

    I too carry and very much like the smaller SK model. If I were to open carry, or as a duty weapon I'd switch to the larger P2000.
