Walther PPX, 9mm
I just picked up a Walther PPX in 9mm.
I had decide to get a "full size" 9mm and the Walther PPQ and then the PPX were at the top of a short list. I looked at both briefly a few months ago but hadn't decide to go with any specific brand/model yet. I've owned the Steyr M9A1 in the past and it and the M&P9 were also on the list of possibilities. The LGS had all four in stock yesterday but the Walthers just called out to me(I have and love the PPS, 9mm). The PPQ had a very nice trigger, short take up, crisp break with almost zero build/creep and a relatively short reset. The PPX has a slightly longer take up to fully cock the hammer but it is very light and extremely smooth. The break is as close to a 1911 "glass rod" feel as I have felt on any non 1911 with about 1/16" over travel. The reset is a a bit longer than the PPX but not nearly as long as I expected from a DAO hammer fired pistol. Since the PPX was $150.00 cheaper than the PPQ I saw it as a no brainer and the PPX went happily into the saddle bag for a short ride home.
After a good initial cleaning and Eezox treatment, I hit the range with it this afternoon. I only ran 50 rounds of Federal 115gn fmj through it but I was not disappointed at the pistol's performance in the slightest. I was holding 4" groups(5 rounds) easily at 25' and 8" groups at 40' firing quickly but not rapidly, just pressing the trigger as soon as I re-acquired my sight picture. It did seem to be shooting about 2" left at 25' when I took my time and shot for bull's eye accuracy. I got 5 rounds in a 2" group, 2" left of POA.
I am extremely pleased with my new piece of Tupperware!

I held one at our LGS the other day on a 'Man's Day' outing with a grandson. It felt VERY nice, though very full-size. Walther does make good product.
... Oh, and congratulations!

Walther makes a great weapon and i am sure this is no exception, but my first impression when I picked this one up at my LGS was it was one of the ugliest guns I have ever seen. Not quite as bad as a HI-Point, but running a close second.
