It's been 5 days since my last handgun purchase (Kimber HD), so I'm due for a new one. I'm not big on poly guns - I like 1911's, metal Sigs, steel revolvers, etc. I've owned Glocks, XD's, M&P's and whatnot, but I've never owned or shot a H&K. I'm intrigued by the P30L in 9mm but know little about it. I think I like what they've done with the mag release, and how the slide drops into battery automatically when a loaded magazine is inserted. It's prettier than a Glock, but only on par with XD's and M&P's. I love DA/SA and decockers on my various Sigs, so the P30L V3 sounds right up my alley. My question however, is what makes H&K twice the price of Glock/XD/M&P? Extra special poly? A plethora of additional magazines? Heavy duty unbreakable barrel? International shipping charges? I want one of these, but how does one justify the grand it's going to cost?
