    Walther PPS Availability

    I was all set to buy the Kahr in .40 caliber when I saw a post about the PPS and immediately shifted gears. I have owned Walthers in the past and thought that they were really well made and relatively ergonomic. The PPS looked like it had everything I wanted in a pistol with (what looks like) a more comfortable grip than the Kahr and almost identical dimensions.

    I have tried several local dealers and no one seems to have them, should I be surprised? I know they are new, but I thought that at least a couple of shops would have them on-hand already.

    Any suggestions on where to get one? Also, is there is a distinct difference in size between the .40 and the 9mm? With the very similar 1 shot stop ratios I am considering going with the 9 now.

    Thanks!

    Not sure on availability. Maybe try gun broker as well. the .40 or 9 should be the same size frame. However , 9mm seems better for less felt recoil on ultralight guns.

    Just checked gunsamerica.com and they have four posted ranging from 525 to 695.

    I want one but they are not on the CA approved list yet.

    Calgon please take me away from this state.

    Any reason to get an all black over the "First Edition"? I like the look of the first edition, but if there are mechanical differences. I am not concerned with "collector's item". Personally I don't think anything marketed as a "collector's item" will ever actually be collectible.

    Nice review on Gunblast. I don't need a PPS (got a Kahr PM9 and P9 Covert filling the ultra compact/lightweight 9mm role), but I sure want one!

    The black and First Edition are the same... just the color of the housing and the slide marking is different....
    If you can find a First edition for regular retail ($579) you will get a nice case and a extra mag (3 total) that will make up for the extra price compared to the regular PPS. ($529)
    Mine will be a shooter too.... not buying any more guns I don't shoot
