Spider-Man.........here I come!

After years of not caring for the Spider-Man grip, today, I bought a P30 V3
Should be here next week. Shot one at a local rental range. I still do
not completely care for the look, but the feel of the grips is amazing.
Super grippy, super comfortable........love it!

Congrats! Those things are sweet, man. Enjoy! Please post pics when you get the gun, if you get the chance. I've been wanting one of those for a while, but none of my local gun shops carry H&K. I always end up buying SIGs or Glocks instead.

Congrats, fwb! I got mine from Top Gun Supply last year, and it is a Lite LEM v1, and I couldn't be happier! I picked up an HK45 about an hour later...

Cross Creek Guns will help you out on magazines when they become available again.

Enjoy yours!

Just a running gag because the H&K marketing department screwed up a catalog some years back.

The P30 is one hell of a gun. They are just so ergonomic.

Meh H&K's marketing team that puts ammo in the mag backwards are feakin' amatures when compared to an Air Force shooter!!!

Heckler & Koch Forum

Yes, that really freakin' happened! I was the instructor for that class that day that took the picture. I guess "we" were at fault down there at CATM since we kept both M-16 and M9 mags in the same can... even though this shooter never even seen an M-16 magazine in the classroom so no idea why she thought this would be the correct magazine to use.

Ahhh, I see. I had to do a double take. Knew there had to be something behind it...

As far as the ergonomics go, I fondled one a few weeks ago. I have to say, the Walther PPQ is so similar in look and feel, I can see why the last 2 people that saw mine at the range thought it was the H&K.

I love the feel of my P30 40 just holding it.
But shooting?
The grip seems too narrow and torques in my hand.
I put a Hogue rubber finger groove sleeve on the gun.
And that solved the problem.

Plus I'm just not a skate board tape kind of guy.

The P30 and HK45 are sweet.
But I prefer the ergonomics of their HK45C, P2000 and 2000SK models.

It's splitting hairs really.
I'd be happy with any HK.
You really can't lose with any of them.

I do believe a HK45c will be in my future.

Five HKs.
Fourteen handguns total.
And the HK45C is easily my favorite.

You really must have one.

HK45C was adopted by
the United States Naval Special Warfare Command in September 2010

Congrat's! Wait til you use the side panel's and back strap's to fit your hand!
HK hiring Karl Nill for the grip was a great idea!...
