    I feel like they're never really mentioned as a solid company. The PPQ probably has the best stock striker fired trigger I've ever felt. The PPS is my favorite single stack 9MM on the market.

    But when most people ask what to companies/pistols to look into, Walther isn't mentioned that frequently.

    Yet they look cool (to me) and they're pretty reliable.

    I’ll be picking up a Q5 Match Steel Frame shortly. Nice pistol.

    I got 2 PPS, one 9mm and a .40, both first gens. They've been stellar, but to be honest I wish they didn't reconfigure them to the current gen. 2s.

    They haven't had a good idea since 1938, so I'd say their continued existence is more love than they deserve.

    the PPS and PPQ aren't good ideas? come on man, the PPQ is probably the best stock trigger there is for a striker fired pistol.

    Yeah, the lack of holster options for the PPQ in .45 caliber reminded me of this issue. I did find a couple of options eventually, but it wasn't nearly as easy as finding what I want for any given Glock.

    familyman357 I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

    Walther doesn’t do a good job of promoting its products.

    FN is even worse.

    I have a PPQ M2 9mm and just acquired the Q5 match conversion upper. Excellent shooter and I am a Glock owner. Love the PPQ; only complaint readily available spare parts.

    They make a solid product. I like the PPS and PPS M2 better than the Shield, Glock 43, or any of the others in the sea. As with anything, some people are going to hate especially if it's not a CZ, M&P, or Glock.

    They've never made a single gun I've wanted to buy.

    I agree, the PPS was the first pistol I bought and I tried a TON of pistols before that one. It was my favorite of the sub compact single stacks.

    really? I think both the PPS and PPQ are attractive looking pistols.

    Every gun company has their own fan base, there's just bigger names that's been around longer. Walther USA was established in 2012, and the PPQ is coming up at its 10 year mark.

    I like the PPQ enough to buy $400+ worth of magazines. And the Q5 Match is very popular in the competition market.

    The P99AS was ahead of its time and not appreciated.
