    Handled one myself....feels nice, but I am tol dby sveral on here and others that the trigger is not the best, and the gun as a whole is pretty overpriced for what it is.

    I have one in 9mm. Love the gun. Shoots well and have had absolutely no problems with it. Have shot quite a few different brands and bullet styles. I have had no feed problems or fire issues. Was a little pricey though, but still worth the money.

    My SO uses it for her daily carry and loves it. The first time she shot it, emptied the clip in 1 1/2 inch group. (nice)

    Just my .02 on this little gem.

    I can get a new one for $500 out the door. I don't know if that's a good price or not?

    Great price!

    I would stick to the 9mm version. The .40's have been a bit problematic (feed and ejection issues) and keep the S&W warranty center busy.

    I own a 9mm version. it is a good , slim gun. I have no issues with the trigger . It is not a pocket auto but a great compact auto. Accuracy is better than I expected.

    Might check out this thread first. Seems there are those who are not happy with the way the service, or lack of is being done.

    I have one and its my main Carry. Mine is also a 9mm. I paid about 550 for mine about a year ago. I love mine. The wife "thinks" that it is her gun but she doesn't want to carry. No biggie, I have a p2000 that is "mine".

    I have a matching pair of 9mm PPS's in the house. It's my wife's primary carry gun, though I carry my Sig more often. The PPS conceals very easily and is small, thin and light enough that I can actually forget I have it at times ... never happens with my Sig simply due to the added bulk and weight.

    The mag release is a common point of contention, but in my eyes it's just a matter of getting used to it. You might want to look into the different mag sizes as they really do change the comfort of the gun in your hand. The 6 round is really nice and small .. but the 7 round mag (+1 in the chamber of course) fits my hand better and is therefore preferable for me ... see what works best for you. The 8 round mag is of course even larger, but you start to lose the benefit of the compact size (IMHO).

    I still don't shoot as well with the PPS as I do with my Sig's .. but honestly I don't spend as much time practicing with it either .. it's the shooter and not the gun.

    I think it's a great carry weapon.

    Jump on it.

    I have had no issues with just over 500 rds through it. Much more accurate at distance than I expected, as I bought it for EDC. And I love the trigger.

    I like mine (9mm)and have had no issues with it.

    If nothing else it's SLIM !

    I do hate the magazine latch though.

    The trigger on mine seems great to me, IMHO it has less travel than a Glock. BTW I like my two Glocks also.

    The thinness of it is what really turned me on to it. It felt pretty good in my hand. I bet that thing just disappears in a good IWB rig!

    I have a Glock, XD and a PPS and the PPS is my favorite...I love how thin it is and I have no issues with the trigger...I haven't had any problems with FTF or FTE's ...mine is in 9mm and it is far more accurate than I thought it would be. $500 is a great price...I would jump all over it. The only down side is the mags are kinda pricey...Robbie
