    Two semi-autos - Pick one

    There are two fairly new semi-auto pistols to consider. They can't really be compared side by side because they are entirely different handguns.

    1. The Walther PPQ in either 9mm or 40SW. Your thoughts and opinion.

    2. The Kimber 9mm Solo. Your thoughts and opinion.

    Consider size, features, appearance, any reviews you have read positive or negative and anything else you would like to add. Do you own one or have you shot one?

    I'm not adding photos but you can see them up on the manufactures websites.

    Limit the discussion to these two pistols. There are other threads to write about your favorite Glock, Sig, SA or other.

    I chose the Walther PPQ because I already own a Walther P99AS and it is a terrific handgun. The new Quick Action trigger on the PPQ is phenomenal and the gun's ergonomics are fantastic.

    Good choice. I carry a PPS and own a P22, My mini P99. The new PPQ is styled like the P22, a 3/4 size P99. Great to hold because as you mention, it has great ergonomics.

    I'm also full size Kimber owner. It is not very concealable in dress clothing without a coat. I think the Solo or a CDP will be next for me after a PPQ.

    It depends on what you want it for. If your looking for something small easy to conceal, the Solo wins. It's shorter, not as tall and lighter than the Walther. Only advantage I see for the Walther is capacity, but you gain that at the expense of the width of the gun.

    Don't like neither.
    If you gotta have one:

    Walther would get the nod.

    I've handled a Solo, but I own a PPQ M2. I voted with my wallet. Couldn't be happier with my choice.

    I like to shoot everything I own, Solo is not a range gun to finicky on ammo, the walther is a good weapon the grip is serrated a little rough for range work IMHO so I would vote neither

    The Solo is more comparable to the PPS. The PPQ has rave reviews, but is really a different class of pistol. I'd take the PPQ over a Glock, M&P, or any other double stack polymer pistol.

    I'd keep my PPS over a Solo.

    My PPQ 9mm First Edition has now passed 12K rounds without any issues at all. It eats anything fed to it and drives tacks!...It is fun at the range and I love training with it. It makes a great EDC.
