So in hopeful anticipation of a good McDonald verdict and the idea that I may have a CCW someday, I was wondering, is a P2000 too big to be a CCW?

I can honestly say, it's a great choice.

Does it compare in size to a G19?

I would say the P2000 would be a great choice for CCW. A couple years back I held a P2000 9mm and it felt great. It pointed naturally and I liked having the DA/SA with decocker. I put a deposit on it and was going to buy it but I had a pit in my stomach at the time because of the price (about $800 if I remember correctly) and it wasn't a planned purchase but more of an impulse buy, so I backed out of the deal with the FFL. I felt bad for doing that and it was a really nice gun but I had to do it at the time.

I have since really gotten to like Glocks and have 2 on my CCW. If I was going to buy a HK for CCW, the P2000 would be the one for sure. One consideration NOT to get the P2000 for CCW for me was that they are more expensive and I would hate to lose the gun to the system if there were a shooting and it was confiscated. Other than that, if that's what you want, it would be a very good choice. I believe it is right around the same size as a Glock 19 too.

I read post of someone I know here who seemed to have one. But he was a tall guy and skinny too(and I wonder if he forgot to load his magazines :p). I'd say they are not that bad.

ok that was a really bad sentence. :p Here is better version
As far as I know, someone on this forum had P2000 for his CCW. I read it somewhere(either here or another forum he frequents) that he had it on his CCW. He is a tall and skinny guy.

You bet... The P2000 is a great pistol for many reasons including "Carry" I just purchased a P2000 V2 9mm.

sorry, but the name p2000 reminded me of a defunct pistol. does anyone remember the name and manufacturer. it was 9mm, had a rotating bolt locking system, similar to an m-16/ar-15, double stack mag. think it was an s&w. came out around the time of the glock.

Have you shot one? The POA is quite different than most pistols.

I love my P2000 for carry. Very comfortable in an inside the waistband holster holster just behind my right hip. Very reliable gun. I only have experience with the LEM Trigger, it is different, but with enough practice, its' perfect for the defensive purpose it was made for.

I did some comparison to the SK carrying wise and it's not all that much smaller than the P2000. Plus you can't beat 13+1 in a reliable compact gun. Gun runs well with winchester SXT ammo.

I love guns.

I like the P200 far better than the USP--the USP was designed for tactical operators wearing gloves--bigger grip, wider trigger guard, big controls. The P200 is more compact, smaller controls and grip, and seems lighter. I was looking at a Navy Sig P226 and handled the P2000 in 9mm for the same price--it got me thinking and I love my Sigs. But I'd want to shoot one first.

If you have an old one--I had a pre-hi cap ban USP 40 and I kick myself for selling it before the ban. Arrrgggghh! I am reminded again. Oh, the pain, the pain...will it ever stop? McDonald--take two and call me in the morning. Oh I hope, I hope.

So what do you like better? The G19 or the P2000? I see they are different calibers but tell what you like about the differences between the guns. Would you take one over the other? Any noticeable differences in accuracy for you? This thread is making me want to get a P2000. Dang it!

jdg 30,
i posted the pictures to show the difference in dimensions for the op cause he was considering a ccw.
between the 2, i actually prefer the glock 19 just because the 9mm is cheaper for plinking.
but for ccw, i would go for a glock 30sf cause it makes bigger holes.

Not too big; my P2000 v3 9mm is my carry gun, OWB carry. During hot days, just leave your t-**** untucked. I prefer DA/SA for carry. If you have no such preference, check out the Glock 19. It is smaller than the P2000 in all dimensions and holds 2 more rounds.

Well, I already *own* the P2000...was more thinking about did I want to get it a baby brother for carry purposes. :)

You mean the P2000sk? If so, why not go w/ the Kahr PM9? The PM9 allows pocket carry when the situation needs it.

It's nice to have the options of OWB (P2000), pocket and fanny pack (PM9). Pocket carry is nice when going out to places where you need to wear a suit. Fanny pack carry option is very nice during vacations.
