Up front, I think that the HK P30 is a superior pistol, but as this is the one that I purchased, I'd like to say that it's a great combat handgun with some caveats.
- It's not really a compact handgun. It's size puts it somewhere between the true compacts and the full size combat handguns. Thus, it's not great for concealed carry, nor does it have the magazine capacity and barrel length of the full-size combat pistols.
- However, it's an accurate and smooth functioning pistol. I've chambered mine with hundreds of lower quality rounds and I've only noticed 1-2 jams at the end of a firing session. The material, fit, and finish are outstanding.
- If you can find one of these below retail, it would make a great personal sidearm.
