    Ready to carry the PPS. Good to go

    Just took a trip to the range at lunch today. I am really warming up to this little PPS. I am much more accurate with this gun than I ever was with the XDSC. Doubletaps with this gun are fun. I finally hit 400 rounds FMJ and 150 rounds of SD. It loves the 147gr HST's. I did have 1 FTFeed in the first 30 rounds the first day at the range. It was a gold Dot, but havent had anymore. I think it was more the mag springs being so tight that caused that 1 failure. The springs are insanely tight at first. 2 thumbs up...of course, I always forget to take pictures. Never can remember that cell phones have cameras. Oh, its also shoots soft. If your thinking about buying one of these...go for it.... I have a 9mm, so I cant speak for the 40.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Hihosilver, congrats on your decision to carry your PPS. I just got mine 3 weeks ago and in no time became my favourite.

    ArmyCop, here is a link to some of the best PPS pics from ppstalk.com.

    The 9mm PPS is my daily carry and I have really enjoyed it as well. Shoots great, nice and thin, disappears IWB. Just recently started doing some IDPA/action shooting to have some more fun with it!

    Also just put a Hogue rubber grip on it and need to get used to that now.

    I am sure you will enjoy it in the future too. I think the PPS is a very cool gun. Congrats!

    Glad you like it, I found the PPS 9 to shoot very well and conceal great. Enjoy

    Have any of you PPS owners installed a different guide rod. Ive seen a couple of different aftermarket alternatives, but wanted to get some input from someone that has actually changed to a different rod. Also, do you guys just dry fire it to dis assemble it, or do you follow the directions and take the backstrap off? I havent taken my backstrap off once. I suppose you could use a snapcap if they dont want you dryfiring the gun. I looked, and I didnt see anywhere in the manual that states not to dry fire it. I would think that the "dont have to dry fire when dis-assembling the gun" is some sore of marketing issue. Anyway, tell me about your guide rods and how you dis-assy.

    I just dry fire and take down like a glock. Would also like to hear about the guide rod replacement. Pros and cons, is it really needed?

    Same here, I just dry fire to take apart. Haven't tried a replacement guide rod but I know the one you're talking about. I've been thinking about trying it, some reports I've read state it make it it a tiny bit "smoother" but not sure if I'll be able to tell much of a difference. Don't think it's a necessary item, they seem to be very reliable with the stock rod. Guess I'm just curious more than anything :)

    30 years of concealed carry as a former coin dealer. The Walther PPS 9MM is superb. Over 5000 rounds with one issue; slide stop spring replacement. First edition
