I have the light LEM on my P30L. I've been curious about the P2000sk as a carry gun for a while. I haven't had a chance to shoot one, though.

I often carry a P2000SK with the light LEM. The only thing I didn't like is the finger rest on the magazines. I ground them off about 30 minutes after getting the new gun home. I've heard of others doing the same. Now the magazines are good, and I prefer them over the flat base ones.

I can easily see that happening, haven't shot it yet but I've played with it enough to understand exactly what you're talking about! I've carried a Glock 26 since 2005. Having my pinky curled underneath it and my P30sk is second nature to me, so I may look for some flat base magazines. Need to put a few hundred rounds through it and decide how I feel about it then? Never owned a P2000 before, just USP's and P30's, hope this little pistol is everything I hear they are, they seem to have a pretty strong cult following. It's definitely built like a tank!

Man oh man. Just got that M15 in. Pics later this evening.
Has to be one of the best triggers I've saw on a rifle or pistol.
The reset is ridiculous and the pull weight is no more than 3 pounds ( it seems - has no creep, so that can fool ya ) I'll measure pull weight tonight. Very happy thus far.

That's one of those dreaded Assault (AR :rolleyes:) rifles! Just looked this one up on Armalite's site, what a great looking rifle, congratulations! Looks like a tack driver, what scope are you going to mount?

Thanx ben :)
Prolly just a Vortez Prism ( Spitfire ) and Magpul BUIS
But, if I wanna get serious and she what she can really do, I'll mount my Vortex Viper PST GenII on her.
I mainly just look to have a lot of plikin fun with this ole gal.
Of course, she can do it all imo. Just need to clean her often.
There or there was, not sure if still there or not, but a POF Edge on the Guide that I would really like to get for a SHTF rifle.
But, that CZ Bren 805 I have is pretty sweet. Just that POF is built like a brick chit house, ya know? :D

That’s the true definition of a purpose built weapon, great looking 870!

Thanks guys...

It's what it is and what I wanted for the purpose it was made for because one really never knows what will happen. :)

HK USP .40 Custom Combat with OD green frame and Jet Funnel magwell. I’m a huge Glock fan but I’ve been on a HK kick for a couple of years now. Having said what a Glock fan I am, these HK’s are definitely better built, higher quality pistols, especially the older USP series, they’re built like tanks!

Let the rock slinging begin! :D

My HK VP9 with talon grips is hands down my favorite handgun (the Walther PPQ 9mm being a close second). Guess my dad instilled a love of German guns in me from a young age - he was a big collector. My husband is a Glock guy, but I've never warmed up to them.

Here’s another pic of this OD green frame, I’ve always despised colored frames and would have never considered a colored frame Glock, just didn’t look right (to me).

When this green frame USP became available, I fell in love with it, plus they’re rare!
