I know these threads have been done but man I can't make up my mind. So I went down to a local shop and fondled a PPQ, FNP/FNS, and an XDM. I found all of them nice but went in to see the PPQ and came out wanting one. Yes the PPQ has a nice feeling grip, especially for my short fingers. The trigger felt very impressive. The price is reasonable online. I would like to have one. I'm on the verge of ordering one now a few times but keep backing off. My thoughts are, that it would make for an excellent range gun and would perform adequately as a defense gun. But, my purposes are truly defense first and last. Yes range shooting is fun but the main reason for range shooting is to practice and prepare for the worst. I realize some people shoot merely for fun and for no other purpose but not the majority of us. So the thoughts I keep kicking around are that my G19 has huge parts availability, a good service backing, and does everything in a defense role at least as well as the ppq. 33 round mags are always on my list of pros against any other pistol. Sharing of mags, components, holsters with other glock models. Aside from the Gen 4 black eye still healing, the glock does not fit the hand like the PPQ, although a significant improvement for me. That fantastic PPQ trigger would be no advantage in a close quarters defense scenario I feel. PPQ parts are reported difficult or impossible to acquire. Mags twice the price. Reports of night sights having loose fitment. Reports of poor customer service and turn around times on S&W's part in repairing the walthers(Did some reading on the walther forum). It looks as though they do not take their role seriously in repairing the arms they import from another maker while many report service for S&W arms as excellent. I really want a PPQ but I can't seem to justify it Plus I could use that same money towards a G4 G23 or 32 once they become less scarce. Help me Tom Cruise! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
