Default Which to choose!?

So, I was planning on purchasing a Beretta Px4 Storm Sub Compact. But now I am not so sure, because my dealer pointed out the HK P30 to me. Which would you recommend?


*will someone move this to handguns!?

Lucky for her she's in UT.

I'd take the P30. The P2000 is really nice, but the P30 feels even nicer. I just wish we could get them here. I'd take just about anything over the PX4, but maybe I'm biased against Beretta plastics.

HK makes better products.

Oh and whose really small rifles are you referring to or did you mean "they're?"

Are you LE? If not the P30 is out. Unless you find a PPT.... nevermind... just saw your location.


Get the P30. Hands down.

Out of curiosity within the same price range, have you checked out the XD sub compact? I don't have one, but people have really come out liking it in the sub-compact category.

It's sad how we have accepted our dire situation when almost every other state is so free to buy what they want.

No doubt. I had to explain our stupid "safe handgun roster" to a friend in Virginia the other day. He just couldn't understand how we couldn't bring old revolvers into the state. Of course, neither can I...

Oh yeah, they aren't safe.

As has been repeated... the "test" has nothing to do with "safe." It's all about "Certified." It's "the roster," not the "safe handgun roster."

Does anyone know if any gun has ever failed?

And how can anyone push you toward a Beretta over an HK. There's just really no comparison, IMHO.

I'm a huge fan of HK so I'm going to have to say the p30. The love I have for my USP is unfathomable. haha.
