I'm blown away by the PPQ

I just returned from the range where I bought a Walther PPQ on a whim. All I can say is this thing is special. If it holds together like my Glocks have, they really have themselves a winner.

Likes:
Grip angle (yeah, I'm a 1911 guy)
Grip ergo's
trigger (much better to me than my stock Glock trigger)
accuracy better than average for a combat weapon
stupid easy take down and re-assembly

Too early to crown it the best in the safe, but it is off to a fantastic start

The PPQ is a very fun pistol. I like mine a lot!

Did you get a 9mm or a .40? Some say they had to stop selling the .40 because the tremendous muzzle flip was breaking people's wrists and pulling shoulders out of sockets.

Congratulations on your PPQ! I had a hard time deciding on it or the g19. I sometimes wish I would have gotten the PPQ, and I still might.

Love my PPQ 9. It was down to a PPQ or a Gen 4 19 for me. If they had a better track record I may have not got the Q, but havent looked back once since I made my purchase.

The PPQ is an excellent choice. IMO the best 9mm of the plastics.

Quantify "accuracy better than average for a combat weapon".

Why does every PPQ thread have to defend the muzzle flip?

1) probably should have added "for me" at the end since w/o a ransom rest it is anecdotal. I have not been to the range in about 8 months, and here is what the silhouette looked like after 3 quick mags at the 10 yd mark. I shoot my Glock ok, but not this well:

General Firearms Forum


2) probably because this is the Glock Talk forum

I liked my PPQ---It excels at one thing: putting small groups on paper. I'd put it against any 1911 for doing that but........ I hate the high bore axis. I could never keep my splits where I wanted them while shooting this gun so I don't shoot it much these days.

But, I'm glad you like yours!

I have a PPQ in .40 & the recoil is not bad at all. If you've been considering one don't be afraid.

I have a PPQ 9 and the G 4 19 and appreciate them both; both are "stock." Each different, each wonderful. Some days I have thought the PPQ was more accurate, then I shoot a quarter size diamond with the Glock at 10 yards and have to rethink that. Alternating range practice with them as helped me to learn more about target acquisition, trigger control and staying on target. Each is a lesson. Like arguing about cars we all have preferences.

Overall, to me the Glock feels a bit more manageable in function and I prefer it's simplicity and blockiness in my hand. Yet, the PPQ seems more aggressive (can't define why--shorter reset?), yet not as rugged as the Glock. My Ruger Security Six .357 solid steel (except for handles) is a whole different thing. If they were horses: Glock a quarter horse, the PPQ a thoroughbred and the Ruger a draft horse--a clydesdale. The .357 can sub as a hammer or club.

You shot a PPQ, and still have an arm..... you've got to be kidding.

The P99 was a favorite since I first shot it. Going through classes with the CEO of Glock Fan Boys International (Yeager and his crew) I was constantly chided and told how bad the gun sucked. But it was accurate, never had "upgrades" and never failed. I grew to love the unappreciated, unmarketed, and EXPENSIVE P-99. When I read of the P99 RAD, I desperately wanted one, but figured I would never get the chance. I was wrong.

Well, good ol' Walther must have listened to their potential customer base this time. It's a very nice sidearm.

The answer is BOTH. I love the PPQ, but I own and carry Glocks.
