What can I tell you? With over 4,000 rounds out of my PPS, and use as my EDC gun, you can guess my opinion.

I currently have 2 PPQ's in .40. I use them as my EDC with very little issues. I carry mine at 4:00ish with my Crossbreed IW holster. Thinking about selling those and getting the PPQ in 9mm though. Either way I would still use them as my EDC.
I've had a 9mm PPS for almost four years. It's uber reliable (1,800 rds. of assorted fmj/jhp so far with 1 malfunction), accurate and a pleasure to shoot.
Walther hit a home run with this pistol, IMO.
It's top notch gear.

The obvious choice would seem to be the P99c.
The PPK is a bit heavy for what all you get.
PPS would suffice.
I like my PPS 9mm very much---I don't currently own a PPQ, but it could happen! I do have an SW99 (P99 by S&W) in 45 ACP---like it a lot also. As for the PPK, I don't have one and probably won't as I don't want to add the .380 round to the inventory. I do have a 1969 Walther PP in 22 lr---dandy little gun! Over the years, I also picked up a couple of stainless TPHs in 22 lr and a 9mm P5. I guess I like Walthers...
The PPS is the best Walther 9mm for concealed carry, if you can't comfortably conceal a PPQ or P99. The PPX isn't a compact. It's slightly larger than the PPQ. P99c are good pistols, but they aren't much of a departure in ease of concealment from the PPQ/P99.
If I carried single stack, I'd carry a Kahr CW9 or a PPS. Instead, I go with the PPQ in a DeSantis Speed Scabbard most of the year (we wear over garments 8/12 months in Oregon), and a Ruger SR9c IWB during warm weather.
Had a PPK/S some years ago and couldn't wait to get rid of it! it beat the h--l out of the thumb "web" on my shooting hand and, after I sold it, I heard of others who had the same problem. Love my Rosewood gripped Sig 238; you should give it a look. Good luck.
