    Finally Chose First ED Carry Gun.

    I went with the Walther PPQ. I rented and researched many guns before I found what I think is perfect for me. The ppq just feelslike it was meant for my hand. The lever style mag release is in the perfect spot. I told myself I wouldnt carry until I was gettingconsistent groups. I started getting consistent 5 in groups, and with the ppq Im shooting even tighter. More like 4 in. Obviously still need improvement but feeling comfortable enough to carry.

    Horrible choice!

    Nah, nice gun.

    Looks like the original PPQ is being discontinued in favor of the new PPQ M2. Walther Arms will be the importer rather than S&W in the near future.

    Obviously, how you shoot it is the important thing.

    Walther is opening up shop on this side of the pond as well. Hopefully mag prices will come down and parts will be readily available. I would like to grab a US made one after the new design is vetted. I waited as long as I could for a 9mm PPQ, but my preferred LGS still hasn't gotten anything but 40's.

    I was surprised to find one. And i got it for 510 because it was supposed to be on hold but they couldnt find it when i came in the first time
    And yeah that 3rd mag was 60 dollars. Only drawback as far as i can see.

    Anyway, thanks everyone.
