    Went to Bud's yesterday and ended up buying the PPQ and Nano. Tested the Nano today and love it except for the extremely heavy and long trigger pull. The trigger will take some getting use to, but I was very pleased with this little beauty. Walther is up next. I can already tell that I'm going to love the trigger on it.

  3. A word. of caution about that PPQ.

    First, wrap your fingers, hand, wrist, arm, and elbow like a NFL lineman so the monster recoil and muzzle flip caused by the extremely high bore axis won't tear your arm off, or remove parts at the joints.

    Second. If you shoot at a range with a table\bench, kneel under the bench and hold the pistol against the bottom so it will help control the massive and uncontrollable muzzle flip caused by the extremely high bore axis. But be careful, you won't be able to shoot but a few rounds before the bench tears apart, and most ranges make you pay for damages and repairs.

    Third. Wear a helmet. It's not uncommon for the massive muzzle flip from the extremely high bore axis to drive the top of the slide backward in an arc and into your skull. There have been numerous incidents where people were killed and knocked unconscious by the uncontrollable muzzle flip caused by the extremely high bore axis.

    Four. You better hope you got it in 9mm and not 40SW. But I guess you couldn't get a 40SW since Walther had to recall the 40SW because of the carnage associated with shooting one, due to the extremely high bore axis. The cost of medical bills associated with shooting a PPQ typically makes it not worth it.


    Otherwise, have fun.

    So, you're saying the bore axis is too high? ;)

    Also, wear a life preserver if you are anywhere near water, the recoil will force you in.

    Be sure to install an airbag on the striker plate, to cushion the blow of the pistol against your forehead, after each shot

    If I ever buy another polymer pistol, there's a good chance it will be the PPQ.

    That's a big "if" though.

    You think the nano trigger is that heavy? I think it's great compared to most of it's competitors.

    The darn thing is tempting. If I buy a non 1911 handgun the PPQ is towards the top of the list. I am thinking a new gun this week but not sure what. :dunno:

    In the mean streets we learned to deal with an extremely high bore axis by rotating our grip 90 degrees to the center. This transforms a extremely high bore axis into a hella wide bore axis. Problem solved.

    Well I may have overstated it a tad, but it is quite heavy.

    Can't be any worse than the 27 and that's my favorite carry gun.

    Doesn't that hurt innocent bystanders?
