Great deal on a great gun
This is a discussion on Walther PPS 9mm.(Honest honey, it just followed me home!) within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I've been on a quest for the perfect(Yeah, I know) single stack compact 9mm. It started when my wife got her Taurus 709. I liked ...
I've been on a quest for the perfect(Yeah, I know) single stack compact 9mm. It started when my wife got her Taurus 709. I liked almost everything about it but the grip depth(trigger break to back of grip) was just too short.
Then I heard about the Walther PPS and after some one on one time with one over the sales counter I decide I liked everything about it but the price.
Then the Beretta Nano videos surfaced and I though "Man, that might be the one!". I am not thrilled about the internal lock but that's not really a deal breaker and the MSRP is more reasonable. Unfortunately I have not been able to handle one yet.
Then The Bersa BP9MCC hit the scene and there are actually a few reviews on the interwebz from owners and not Rag Reviewers. Again, not perfect as I don't like the mag disconnect. But, again not a deal breaker and the MSRP is significantly lower than the Walther or the Beretta.
So I go to the LGS today to see if there is any chance that they may have acquired the Bersa or the Beretta yet. No such luck! As I am talking to the manager and one of the sales guys, I ask if they have any idea when they might be able to get their hands on one or the other. They both ask why I don't want the PPS. I said that I indeed wanted the PPS but just couldn't justify the price. Well, that jack hat of a manager said "What if I gave you a new PPS 9mm with 2 magazines for $480.00?" I asked if he new a good divorce lawyer and started filling out the NICS paper work!
I know the thread is meaningless without pics so here ya go
I just have a feeling that this isn't really the end of my search so much as the end of this chapter!
Great deal on a great gun
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
Good deal . The PPS is a very good gun. Congrats and enjoy!

Congrats!...that's a great deal with the two mags. With these finally coming down in price, I predict a lot more people will be carrying them soon. I'd luv to have one myself and hear they are great shooters.

I'll get it to the range in a couple of days. I want to clean it thoroughly and treat it with Eezox first. I'll post a range report but I'm not sure what good anyone will get from a retelling of my mediocre shooting!
glad to see Walther dropping the price on the PPS. The only reason that the PPS does not have a greater following is because of the price point. IMO, the PPS is the Cadillac of single stack 9mm/40.
Nice deal on a great pistol.

Does the PPS grip plus magazine look a little long? Are there flush mags?

Congrats on the nice gun.
Im jealous of your buy! Mine sure cost a lot more two years ago! Enjoy it, it is a great firearm to carry and a fun one to shoot at that.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
OMG, I paid quite a bit more for mine. Was it NIB? If so, I officially hate you.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
Yea, steal of a deal. Cheapest I've seen it at any LGS is $515.
He assured me that it is NIB. It appears to be once fired(as near as I can tell) the feed ramp is spotless and the bore is clean but there is a bit of brass residue on the bottom of the slide from feeding. No external blems at all.
Very nice deal. Congrats!
