I do not have any experience with the PPS, though I have heard good things from others. I do have a G26 for my CCW, along with my G19 that I use for CCW from time to time. I have been very happy with the G26 (as well as my G19) and would highly recommend them for CCW. It is what works for me. In the end though what matter is exactly what many others have said in this thread, what works best for you. If you can, rent the options you are interested in at the range and then decide based on what feels best to you. Then you'll get to make the next fun decision, the CCW holster. Again, this needs to be what works best for you and how you choose to carry.
