    My P30, with the ‘regular’ short lever. It cured my issue quickly.

    Yeah, I spent a significant amount of time teaching, and one of the hallmarks of a good teacher is that there are good general principles to performing certain tasks but also realizing that what works for one student may not work for another.

If it's not just an HK thing (like you're overriding controls of several different types of pistols), then overall grip needs to be looked at more.
    I can't say that I have noticed it on other platforms, but I shoot the P30 97+ percent of the time when shooting a semiautomatic.

    Noted. Give me a few days.

    I recently found myself in the same boat. After years and years of primarily shooting Glocks, I switched to a Walther Q5 which has a huge ambi slide release. Being left handed I never had an issue before. So now I can either modify my grip or my gun.
