I am struggling with whether to go with the Lem DA only or DA/SA HK trigger for the P30 I would like to use for home defense. Currently have a VP9 but trigger is too light for my comfort considering I may be groggy in the middle of the night.

I shoot both. Sigs and Beretta along with striker fired pistols.

Having gone through the same decision, I prefer the LEM hands down for a defensive trigger.

To me the LEM compares favorably with a striker trigger, but with a longish take-up (like a 2-stage), and a clean break. It's also "auto de-cocking" (no reason to de-cock, let the trigger forward and it's there), and gives you the warm/fuzzy of being able to thumb over hammer while holstering. It is not for everyone, and some guys flat out don't like it. I find it easier to shoot than either a DA/SA or DAO (which it is, but only different)

What model pistol are you looking at??

Depending on the pistol, you can always buy a DA/SA, then convert it to a LEM later, this is the route I've taken with a couple of my HKs. Parts to convert usually run under $100, that way should you dislike the LEM, you can always swap it back to DA/SA.

Here's a pretty good write up:

LEM or go with a VP9.

No question here.

I prefer my LEM P2000 trigger to using DA/SA on my other HK's - although that's a moot point since I tend to run my HK's using the manual safety.

Ever since feeling the DAO trigger on my P99c and RM380, I really don't like my LEM P2000 anymore. Seems harder to shoot then the others. Too heavy

LEM is the issued system in the P2000s in the Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection. There are tens of thousands in the field. Mostly seems to be accepted and liked. It's a simple system to use. No safety to remember or forget. thumb on hammer when holstering. I've been carrying DAO since mid 1990s. Before that I carried 1911 or Da/SA guns. I prefer the simplicity of LEM in my USPc.

I shoot a 9mm 1911 in competition (3 lb. trigger), but really like my P2000 v2 LEM for CC. I tried the v1 spring kit, but didn't see the need for a lighter pull. I like the "wall". You can pull to the second stage wall during the press out (once the gun is pointing "down range" without risk of an AD/ND. And the thumb on hammer is nice during reholster. I would love to have a 9mm Commander, but I'm in California.

All of my coworkers hate the gun with a passion where I am. I didn't dislike it much until I started shooting other guns last year. P2000 was my only piece for a while.
