    I've what's called the Classic M1 in 9mm. Love it for steel shoots, a little unsure about it as a CCW as the trigger is too light.

    TruGlo makes the TFX Pro for them, and they work great.

    I set mine up as a nightstand gun with Streamlight and Meprolight night sights. The gun's been 100% reliable since the first day.

    I love both of my Walther pistols. Walther is probably my favorite overall brand and the PPQ 45 you have is definitely one of the best pistols there is.

    Good luck with your new pistol.

    Creed is as great as the Apollo who played it in the film!

    I'm up to get a .45, and the 3 in the running are;

    - M&P 2.0

    - Beretta PX4 Storm (full size)

    - Walther PPQ

    To this point, I've only shot an OG M&P, and it was fine. The Beretta is a brick, and I have a feeling that the kick of a .45 plus the PPQ's lighter trigger might be a little much for me, personally, to handle well...but of course, I've not ever fired either.

    Most important aspects to me are accuracy (which I'm sure all 3 excel at), and muzzle rise.

    Enjoy your new PPQ!

    I'm surprised no one has pointed this out yet, so I will. The trigger pull of a PPQ is NOT that light. It's rated at 5.6 pounds, and my PPQ 45 measures pretty much right there. It only SEEMS light, because of the lack of creep, travel, grit, and general unevenness. The actual pull weight is not appreciably different from that of many other similar pistols.

    Not sure of the size 45 acp semi that you are looking for or price range but since I got this the 1911 just don't get out to the range very much at all.
    for me if you are looking for a top notch easy on the recoil, muzzle lift and accurate as can be, as well as very ergonomic and quality built take one of these for a test drive if you can.
    Buy one and be happy forever!
    10 round + 1 capacity, de-cocker or thumb safety, super duper nice trigger, reliable to a fault and plenty of factory and after market support.
    CZ 97. high 5 or low 600 cost, if you can find one in stock--Tritium sight and thin aluminum grips come stock.

    Getting back to Texheim's new Walther PPQ .45............

    Fit and finish is excellent and trigger reset is very light.
    IMHO, you have chosen very very well! Sometimes that gut instinct voice inside you will lead you to something wonderful!

    I find the new Walther PPQ .45 to be of great interest and I could see myself acquiring one!

    I hate that impulse buying, seem to spend more money that way. Congrats on the new slide gun.
