Besides a hard primer, how else does restrike help?
It can help bring the pistol back into battery if for some reason the slide does not completely cycle all the way forward. This can help with weak or bad ammo, a weak hold on the pistol, or something getting in the way of the slide as it is cycling. Especially if the other hand is busy doing something else.

I guess it depends on your definition of "allowed to carry". For the P99c, DA mode for sure, but you've seen the debate generated here just over carrying in long pull, AS mode. But does anyone think you should carry the 99c in the short pull SA mode? I certainly wouldn't.

As balance points out: if in a one handed scenario, restrike would be an excellent capability.

Not much different then carrying a PPQ....so yes there are three carry options.

If you don't keep fiddling with the trigger it should be OK

I do believe the AS mode is a decent compromise. If you forget it's in that mode, the click really wakes you up! But I still will carry in DA first shot. These guns are pretty easy to shoot accurately in DA.

For what its worth, I own both and have probably close to the same amount of rounds in both. I shoot each one equally. If I could put the P99c trigger reset on the P30sk, ultimate CCW gun. But everyone that has shot both of mine prefer the P30sk. I think the trigger reset surprises most people that have not or do not shoot a lot.

Thanks Tony - I suppose you have version 3, DA/SA? I hear folks changing out the hammer spring to get a lighter DA on the HKs. I do think that they are heavy albeit smooth in DA.

I do like the plus 1, pls 2, and plus 3 capability of the P30 SK - lets you slice it your way. (You can duplicate the P2000 size which is very G19ish). I think this MAY be the main advantage.

I DO like the slightly trimmer design of the P99C and weight for carry.

I do have version 3, I like the heavy trigger pull for the DA, and I really don't notice much difference in the DA pull on the P99c. I rarely shoot it in AS mode. I practice how I carry with both.

How so? I thought that with the P99 you will shoot in AS mode after the 1st shot or at least that is how mine is. IIRC, the old QA was supposed to be a short heavy pull from 1st to empty? Or am I misunderstanding you? It does keep the trigger similar for both my P99C and PPQ to be firing in AS as an example. They feel roughly the same when I draw and shoot the PPQ and when I do it with the P99C in AS mode but with it decocked, it does feel different. IDK what happens when the Adrenalin is running as to whether it will throw off my first shot or not or give me an instant of question. At the range, I can feel the difference and know I am adjusting for the next shot unlike the PPQ hence I carry both in AS mode, so to speak.
