This gun keeps popping up in conversations and shooters circles and recently reviewed by Hickok45 hickok45's Channel - YouTube.
Simply stated I want one. I have held one and the grip is WOW!

Guess you'll have to go with the urge to buy it. :cool:

Me, I can't afford to go around fondling all the other fine brands of handguns out there, because I still don't have all the Taurus handguns that I want! :rolleyes:

Wanting and having are 2 differn't things. I agree with you, my budget will not allow either. I thought about trading my Glock 17. Truly the Glock is a tactical machine and I can upgrade it to a 3.5 trigger bar(dangerous light). I did some more research and the Walther mags and accessories and they are mucho$ (I already have 5 mags for the Glock 4-17's and a hicap)) and I am assuming the service is not as accommodating for me as the Glock, seeing how I live in ATL and Glock is in Smyrna about 15 miles form me( :) ). Prior to buying another 9mm I would fondle a MIlPro and see how that feels too. I heard Taurus got those right! The price point is very attractive on the MilPro as well.

The temptations for the Walther are, number one, it is a family thing since my Grandfather was part of the engineering team that put together the production line for the Walther P38 in Pre-WW2 era at the Sprewerks factory in Berlin. He was a Walther Engineer. The Walther trigger is second to none. The trigger on the PPQ exceeds law enforcement specs in the EU anyway, the reset almost makes it a machine pistol and usually they build a fine gun. The grip is hands down one of the best feeling guns I have ever picked up. The reason I will choose to stick with my Glock and you have to respect Glock for it. From a performance, reliability, durability, availability of parts, simple straight forward innovative design, modifications that are endless and awesome customer service they have their market share for a reason. If in the near or distant future if I can turn my career around and start making enough to shoot competitively I would probably use the PPQ over the Glock primarily becuase of the grip and the reset.

I can't fault anyone for wanting a light, compact, single stacked 9mm.

However, for the same weight (or lighter) and 1/8" thicker frame I have the beloved Taurus PT111 with 12+1 capacity.

Each to their own...;)

Price point most likely. Where else can you get 115 grain and up ammo for 8$-12$ for 50 and hand load for pennies on the dollar. In addition with a striker fired semi auto that has a good trigger and reset a set of double tapped +p 147grain jhp's WILL put you down for the count. Also +p 115 grain 9mm great velocity. Price point, good target round, adequate self defense round plenty of great platforms for delivery. What's not to like about it.

Guys, I have a PPQ 9mm and it is by far the most fun polymer gun I've ever bought/fired. I used to shoot a Glock 17C in our local club matches and the PPQ has been a surprise both for accuracy and especially the trigger. I rarely shoot the old Glock anymore. I got it next to me - half tempted to throw it on GunBroker. It was my first handgun and has been great to shoot but the PPQ has stolen her thunder..lol

I will say I'm waiting to hear from S&W if they can fix the finish on mine as there was a very small batch that had some blems, but it doesn't affect the function.

The PPQ is a double stack in either 9mm or .40SW.

Haha, I'm going to keep the old 17 I think. IMO, it's a better carry/ home defense gun as the trigger is NOT as quick as the PPQ. That said, pretty much everyone including me over on Walther Forums LOVES the PPQ.
