I'm a new member, ex NAVY living in south Florida. I've owned and carried my P226 NAVY since 2009. Shot over 4,000 rds without the fist issue. Earlier this year I purchased a PPQ 9mm. This is also a wonderful gun and fits my smaller hands a bit better. At first it was difficult to use the mag release because I was so familiar with the Sig. After 200 rds in the PPQ it was more comfortable to use my "bird" finger on my soothing hand than my thumb.
I also have one of the very few PPQ NAVY's to make it to the US.
I have threaded barrels for the Sig and the Walther. Going through the process to get a can that will work on both.
I have a son and many of his friends and mine are Glock die hards, but they all have to admit they also like my weapons. Most prefer the PPQ because of size.
My next toy will be a Viridian X5L which will fit all my guns.

I'm not familiar with any of those Navy models but they sound good.

Welcome aboard, sailor.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

Welcome aboard Sailor. Two very nice pistols there. I didn't know they made a Navy model in the PPQ.

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Welcome from Fort Worth, Texas. I carry a PPQ.
