    Walther PPS

    walther_pps_1.jpg

    I am starting this thread so as not to hijack current threads about
    .380 Auto.

    I prefer this 9mm or .40. The Walther PPS subcompact. It is only one inch wide and is very accurate. For ISB concealment it is great. I have 6, 7 and 8 rd. single stack mags. The mags. are unfortunately outrageously expensive.

    This is a great alternative to the LCP or any other pocket gun. It has the stopping power needed and ammo is available.

    I've gone to a gun store to buy one of these three times, but I can't bring myself to do it. It just doesn't "sing" to me. On paper it looks like the perfect CCW, but in the flesh it leaves me wanting. No slam on the gun... it just feels too odd to me.

    I have the 9MM First Edition. Wonderful pont shooter and the recoil is very soft; I have over 4600 rounds through. Keep it clean. Very comfortable to carry!! Reasonable capacity

    I have a 9mm PPS. It has over 3000 rounds. NOT ONE ISSUE! It's my front pocket BUG. It is easy to shoot.

    +1000 on the PPS. i have both the 9 and the .40 and both are flawless. The 9mm has well over 3500 rounds through it and I can recollect zero malfunctions. It carries so well that sometimes I forget it's there.

    While I like my Glock 27, I LOVE my PPS's. They are my favorite EDC gun ever.

    It is a relatively new model but is proven. There have been no recalls.

    I'm not a salesman for Walther, S&W but if I was I would tell you this, it is one of the most unique and best hand guns you Will ever own.l

    I'll jump on the bandwagon. You can see from my avatar, my .40 is my EDC.

    Love mine. Flat and light. I wear it in a soft Uncle Mikes in SOB or a Crossbreed minituck. Excellent shooter and very reliable. Done looking for carry guns. My BUG is a Micro Eagle in the pocket or on the ankle. Glocks and 1911's for home defense and play.

    You guys are killing me!
    I just bought a Kahr CW 9 and am having trouble with it.
    I wish I had spent a little more and got a PPS in 9MM.
    If I can't get the CW9 to work like I need it to I will be
    taking a second look at the PPS.

    I like the idea a lot. The only thing I worry about is the backstrap 'safety'...I know there have been stories floating around about it popping off during a firefight, leaving the gun inoperable.

    If it weren't for that, I'd probably be rushing out to get one.

    Does it also have a magazine 'safety'?

    Too bad Glock doesn't make a single-stack 9mm.

    How about cleaning the weapon . . . I hear take down and assembly is more complicated than the Sig or Glock? Any truth to that?

    No not by any means. All you have to do is pull the trigger. To drop the striker, then use the pull down tabs.

    I have a PPS and an LCP. I seem to carry the LCP more since I reside in Florida, but on occasion I carry the PPS, as well as the P2000.
