I do too, but I still like the super+p and if I had to I can find ammo for it at the gun shows.
I agree with Rick on this one. Most people who have owned firearms for a while already have a certain caliber or calibers and a decent supply of ammo for those. If I were a first time buyer, I would be pretty attracted to the 30 super carry. But for use veteran owners, it's not really an option that fills any "gaps" per-say.. Just my opinion, but they are making this for the first time buyer that buys it, shoots a box thru it with their free range pass the day they buy it, and puts it away in a drawer for eternity.
And will probably, like creepy Joe Biden says, blow the lungs right out of a man! Ha!But, but, but..............
The mighty 30sc has the knock down power of a 460 ......WEATHERBY!
Will knock charging RINO's flat! 🦖
Funny. Every gun writer and tester known to man says it is the modern bullet technology that has improved the 9mm. Perhaps you missed reading that TON of reports.The weenie 9 is here now because lots of law officers can't handle anything more powerful. IF it is so great why didn't we adopt it in 1945.....77 years ago?.....Logic aside...Bigger always hit harder.
32 Magnum already exists. Probably their attempt at avoiding confusion with existing cartridges. Like when someone asks for 9mm, but they have a 9x18 (Makarov) or 9x21 (9mm Italian) not a standard 9x19 Parabellum. Or when I ask for .45 ammo at the gun counter and there's that awkward pause before I specify ACP because I've forgotten 45 GAP, 45 Super, and 45 Colt exist.I think the .30 Super Carry may very well be a good thing. However, I cannot figure out why they call it a .30. As others have mentioned it has a .312" bullet, which makes it a part of the .32 family. But whoever invents a cartridge gets to name it whatever they want.
I am a huge fan of the .32 H&R Mag. Never was a big 9mm fan but now I have three, including two new Shield's Plus. Check out my post "Shield Plus Accuracy" in the S&W Semi-Auto Pistols Forum.
Ha, yeah. But I don't think it would be a problem and .32 Super Carry would be a much more appropriate moniker.32 Magnum already exists. Probably their attempt at avoiding confusion with existing cartridges. Like when someone asks for 9mm, but they have a 9x18 (Makarov) or 9x21 (9mm Italian) not a standard 9x19 Parabellum.

I guess I sort of indicated I wouldn't be too interested in it, BUT...If Walther could make a PPK/S in the 30 Super, I might be (I have no idea if such a thing is ever possible with the blowback action). I've become a fan of the PPK/S recently and would like to have one in 32 ACP, but (1) can't find a PPK/S in 32 ACP at my LGS, and (2) can't find 32 ACP ammo anyway. Again, don't bother to tell me there are thousands of them on Gunbroker, or some other place. If it doesn't walk into Ali-Babba's House O Guns, I don't bother. They had a PP in 32, with box and papers, a few weeks ago that I should have jumped on. (Sigh)I'd be tempted to buy one, if one turns up on the used side of the room. I tend to be the guy who says, "Let me take that and try it out." If I don't like it, I sell it and move on. It's just a gun.
Maybe that's why I'm on wife number 3.
What I used:What plate did you use, if any? I have the 507k, but don’t want to file the rear lugs down.
My 30sc Shield Plus didn’t have the rear lugs when I removed the cover plate, but my 9mm Shield Plus did, so that was strange. The 507k works for my 30sc but not for my 9mm without an adapter plate.What I used:
C&H Plate for Holoson..
It's super thin... I don't think filing down the lugs is worth it, unless you want to save $50.S&W M2.0™ SHIELD S&W M2.0™ SHIELDThis is the optics adapter plate for the M&P® SHIELD™ which allows you to mount the Holosun HS407K X2 or HS507K X2.

I actually bought mine from "Aim Surplus". I knew nothing about them, but at the time C&H Precision was out of their own part. I found the C&H Precision plate at Aim Surplus and decided to go with them to get it. Before it came, it was back in stock at C&H.
Also an option, the DPP Titanium plate for the Shield Plus and Holoson 407. Only reason I didn't try this was availability. Its like $22.
