    I decided to take some pics comparing my new PPS, P30L and the Glock 19.

    First up is a pic of the HK and Walther next to my buddies FNP-45. The FN kicks like a kitten. A very tame .45, a real joy to shoot.

    Here's a family shot of all my favorite little krauts

    Huge difference in width. The PPS is an absolute dream to carry. It's just small enough to be an ideal CCW, but big enough to be comfortable and easy to shoot.

    And again with the P30L

    The trio yet again

    The P30L was my EDC for almost 2 years, but now the PPS filled that roll. The difference is night and day

    The HK is easily the most comfortable pistol I have ever held. Here's a comparisson of the grips. The PPS is absurdly slim.

    Now here's a comparisson of the PPS with an 8 round magazine next to the Glock.

    They are almost the exaxt same height, it's just the angle of the Walther's baseplate that makes it seem longer when comparing them upright.

    Hope you guys enjoyed the pics!

    What kind of plug is in your G19? It looks like the M&P tool.

    I've fondled the PPS and loved it but never really realized it was so close to G19 size. Nice pics btw!

    Yea, the profile is very similar to the G19, but the girth is what really does it. It is absolutely night and day. Don't be fooled by the pics, the G19 is comfy to carry and all, but the PPS is in a different league in my opinion.

    As for the plug, I am not sure. I would personally take it out, but I usually keep the pistol at my Father's house and he likes keeping it in. It's sort of a present for him as I don't shoot it that much anymore.

    In terms of it being a "beauty contest", I realize beauty is in the eyes of the blah blah blah, but there is no comparison between any of the pictured pistols with the P30L, but that's just me.

    But yes, they all talk the talk, AND walk the walk.
    The first 250+ rounds through the PPS were flawless, and that was with cheap UMC ammo. As for the HK and Glock, we both know that story. Flawless as expected.
    Of all of them, the G19 is my least favorite (don't shoot me lol). It's a workhorse, but the HK spoiled me in terms of comfort. But like I said, that's just my opinion.

    The PPQ in .40 is what I enjoy...Walther is putting out some nice pieces.

    Saw the walthers at bass pro the other day. They did look amazingly slim. I would like one of every good thing but my preferred caliber is .45 and they don't seem to have any. Used to have a g36 single stack but its not much thinner than the doubles for 4 less rounds so currently carry a g30.

    Nice pics. I had a pps and I loved the size for ccw. I sold it because the trigger was terrible.

    Is the trigger really not good on the PPS? Does it fit well in a small hand? It looks like its shorter than the others front to back which is something that would help me

    How many rounds did you shoot? I found that at the 200 round mark it smoothed out noticeably. Also, if you're impatient you can go in and polish up some components. There's a how-to at the Walther forums.

    Personally, though the trigger initially felt gritty with a spongy reset, it didn't dissuade me from the weapon. I've read that it improves with trigger time, and that's what happened.

    However, if we're talking striker fired pistols, the PPQ is hard to beat. Wish they used that trigger in the PPS ;)

    So to anyone on the fence about the PPS, I strongly suggest you get one. Just be sure to pump lots of rounds through it to smooth the trigger and reset up.
