Thread: Heckler & Koch P2000 Subcompact

  1. #11
    My every day carry gun is an HK P2000 with the LEM trigger in .40. I previously had the SK in 9mm and it's a great gun too. The bigger P2000 isn't that much harder to conceal than the SK. I've gone through several guns trying to find the right balance of power, weight and concealability. I have tried Sig 229 and 239, Glock 23 and 19, Kimber Ultra Carry. I fell in love with the HK the first time I tried it.

    I also have to give a thumbs up for the HK. I don't have the P2000, but I have the P30. It's very nice. I have had to get used to the DA / SA trigger, but I didn't find it all too hard.

    I once owned the H&K P2000 LEM. If it had not been for the LEM trigger having an extremely long pre-travel I would have kept the gun, but I traded it for another pistol.

    I didn't like the LEM trigger one bit. If your new to handguns, or a novice of sorts, then the worst thing you can do is attempt to use a trigger system that requires thousands of rounds to acquire the proper release of the trigger to it's reset point with nothing more than muscle memory.

    I didn't have the time, nor the money to train up and dial in with that trigger.

    Nice gun, had I purchased the DA/SA with the decocker I would still own it.

    YMMV

    I own the LEM trigger and I disagree that starting with the LEM is the worst thing you can do if you're a novice. IMO, it's just the opposite. If you've learned on a DA/SA platform it's probably going to take you longer to adjust to this type of trigger as opposed to picking it up for the first time.

    It only took me a couple magazines to feel comfortable with the LEM trigger and now I prefer it.

    I think if you are starting out the LEM is easy to learn. I like the DA/SA better but admit it is probably from years of shooting Sigs. I still say that the P2000 and P2000sk are 2 of the best handguns to carry concealed.

    In a small aside last night on Best Defense they did some penitration examples. The .45ACP fans would not have been happy. I am very happy and confident with my HKs in .40S&W.

    I suppose it's either or ? I've spent a lifetime shooting single action (1911) and DA/SA so when I hit the LEM it was simply not to my liking. If your first gun is an LEM type trigger system, then your going to suffer if your given/issued an DA/SA or single action trigger. Point being that the dial up time can swing both way's.

    Again you mileage may vary, but I simply didn't like the concept. It's easier said than done to train an individual to only allow the trigger to the reset point, especially the novice is going to alway's alow the trigger to release until he or she feels the stop point.

    It's just not my cup of tea.

    Besides, isn't H&K the "Tommy Hilfiger of handguns?"

  9. I went to the H&K web site and their comment was that the LEM system allows for a "constant level of trigger pull and short trigger travel from first to last round fired". That sounds like a good thing to me. But then I know little about handguns.

  10. Currently the only two pistols I own are a Ruger Security-six, 357 cal with a six inch barrel and a Ruger Single-six 22 cal mag. with a nine inch barrel. I purchased both of these pistols in the 1970's. I use the 22 for rabbit hunting. The 357 is for scrutiny in my home. I have looked at many semi-auto pistols for concealed carry and from all of what I have read the H&K P2000 SK seems to be the best buy for me. What I have read in the reviews the P2000 SK is a well made, reliable gun that is easily concealed.
