    From what I've seen people talk about online, that is not the main area of confusion about the PPS backstrap safety.

    If one reads the PPS manual, it makes it appear that one MUST take off the backstrap and thus make the gun safe, before dissassembling the gun to clean it. However, that is NOT at all the case!

    All doing that does is allow one to disassemble the gun without having to pull the trigger. The truth is that one does not have to go to all that extra work in order to disassemble a PPS. It can be taken apart very quickly in just a couple of seconds using the exact same steps that one uses in taking apart a Glock.

    However, that does require that a person make sure that the chamber is empty. The backstrap safety take down steps in the PPS manual are basically idiot proof, and will prevent an accidental discharge caused by negligence in leaving a round in the chamber.

    So if one feels that they are incompetent, and unable to check if the gun has a round in the chamber, then do all that extra work. Otherwise, do what I do, first making sure the chamber is empty, and then break the gun down in just a couple of seconds instead.

    Once you have pulled the trigger, the twin take down levers on the PPS are actually much easier to operate than the ones on a Glock. So the gun is actually FASTER to breakdown for cleaning than a Glock is.

    This is the main misconception that I've seen about the backstrap safety feature on the PPS.

    I've got a Limbsaver Pro Handgun Grip installed on both of my PPS pistols. The backstrap basically never comes off either of my guns. And that is because there is really no need to ever take it off. The instructions in the manual are misleading, and no doubt put in there by some lawyers trying to protect Walther as much as possible from liability with accidentally shootings happening during cleaning.

    Congrats! I'd consider myself a Keltec fan. They were pocket polymer .380 before it was "cool", same with the PF9 and P11, they've been on the market for quite some time, and now all the sudden these other companies copy them and treat it as though its the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    I Definitely meant no disparaging to the PPS as it is a fabulous weapon. The back-strap was only a problem in my head and never in real life. Like pictured above I had a Hogue grip on it that never came off, so it was truly just mental.

    What I could not overcome was the mag release. Again, that has nothing to do with Walther, and everything to do with me. Breaking in my PPS, I had 6 FTF's in the first 50 rounds, and 0 in the subsequent 300+. If this Kel Tek can do the same, it's all good.

    Very nice gun, but I prefer the Walther PPS.

    No more than the LCP was a carbon copy of the P3A-T. But it wasn't, was it? Looked the same, but was smoother, sweeter, nicer all around. I imagine that the LC9 will be equally refined.

    Not knocking your LCP, I was just pointing out the obvious that it's a rip off of Kel-Tec's design. My point is everyone is acting like it's something new.

    The chrome contrast really makes it look nice.
