    New gun, new holster, new thread...

    Just picked up a new PPS in .40S&W. Gonna shoot it tomorrow, I'll let you all know what I think. Came with 1 6-rounder, got a second on order. (Not a real "range gun" with that capacity, but I wasn't buying a range gun...)

    Got a "Two O'Clock" on order from Comp-Tac, too, which will be my first appendix carry rig, so I'll let you know on that, too.

    I'll get pics up as soon as I get the holster, so I can show you both at the same time!

    Congrat's on your new gun and holster. Post pic's when you can. Now all you need is a new belt and you've got the entire package.

    Just home from the first range trip!

    I ran about 150 rounds through the PPS, 6 at a time. Took a while. Shot in a normal two-handed grip, as well as strong hand only and weak hand only. Single shots at first, then double taps and strings into two different targets. (Don't try that on a range...)

    My fiance has dubbed it "Donkey Punch" based on her view of the recoil of the .40S&W round in the little gun, but I must say the muzzle rise was not bad at all for a .40. It came straight back and was very controllable. The closest thing I have shot to compare it to is a Kahr PM9. Compared, I'd say the Kahr had more muzzle rise, while the PPS had more total recoil. I'm very impressed with my ability to keep it on target through 3 and 4 round strings with my weak hand only!

    Accuracy is about what you would expect of anything with a 3.2" barrel, i.e. Minute of Man at 7 yards in rapid fire. You won't be winning a bullseye competition with this little guy.

    I did get a rude awakening when I tried to practice a speed reload with it, in the form of a nice blood blister. I'm not used to guns whose grips meet the mag in the center of my palm, and figured out right quick that I need more low speed practice at home before I try that again!

    All rounds fed and fired perfectly, and it ejected the brass like it had something to prove, flinging it up to 15 feet in some cases.

    It's only 150 rounds, but so far so good! It's a nice little gun!

    Congrats. I think that you will get to like the PPS a lot as you carry and shoot it more. I have the 9 mm version and find it very soft shooting and accurate. Practicing your routines at home is good idea. Dry-firing helped me realize that the slim grip was making my trigger finger make the muzzle wobble when the trigger broke. Once I straightened that out the PPS accuracy was outstanding. Enjoy your new gun. BTW, let us know how the Comptac 2 o'clock works for you? I want to know whether the kydex is comfortable against the skin and whether the tip digs into the thigh or groin.
