    My mind was made...

    My mind was made on getting either the Kahr CM9 or CW9 today when I went to the LGS. That was until I saw the Walther PPS sitting next to the two in the display case. I handled all three guns and the PPS felt great in my hand and just seemed of higher quality than the Kahr's. I was looking for a single stack 9/40 and the PPS will definitely fit my needs. If it performs well at the range, it will be replacing my G27 as my EDC. Thanks to Wisconsin's 48 rule I will have to wait until Friday to pick it up. Pictures will follow then.

    Let the wait begin!

    Congrats Sioux. I'll give you a $100 for that ratty piece of crap G27 so you don't have to look at it any longer.

    I am not surprised and am glad I have not stumbled upon one. I have heard great things. Congrats! Hope it serves you well. Can't wait for pics and the range report!

    Haha we'll see how much I like the PPS. I did get it in .40 by the way.

    It's interesting how a firearm sitting in a GS starts to call out your name.
    Congrats on your new find, may it treat you well.

    I've had a 9mm PPS for about four years and have been very pleased with it. It's extremely accurate, easy to shoot and has devoured every type of fmj and jhp ammo I've fed it.

    I think you'll like your new PPS. Congratulations.

    How come sooo many guns...know my name?

    Congrats on your PPS. It's tough to find a bad Walther. Keep us informed!

    I love the mag drop on these. Also been eyeing the PPS, most likely in 9mm. Good pick up!

    Want to trade for a Kahr ? You made the better choice in my opinion.
