    I'm taken with this gun. I want one, but they are expensive. Very close to a singlestack Glock. I'll take mine in 9x19.

    Your opinion/experiences?

    It would complement a G23 that curently serves as BUG and off duty.

    I like those too, however I've never shot one. But, depending on who you talk to some like them a lot, some not so much. You may want to GOOGLE "PPS REVIEWS" and "PROBLEMS WITH WALTHER PPS". And if at all possible try and rent one at a local range. If you do let me know what you think.

    The PPS is very popular with my agency. I carry one as a BUG in an Uncle Mike's vest holster and I carry it daily as an off-duty gun. Incredibly accurate 9mm and very reliable. I carry it with Ranger 127 gr +p+. It conceals very well under a t-shirt in an Inside the Waist Band holster. Avoid the 1st edition models as they had some functionality problems.

    There were some issues with the first edition. They were resolved. I don't think you will hear anything but praise for the later models.

    I did for a while, just recently sold it to buy another toy. Great pistol, very accurate and it handled my duty load (Ranger 127+p+) just fine. The funny thing about this gun is it is engineered like a slim Glock 26, I'm a Glock armorer and there are alot of design similarities. I think they are a little expensive though...

    I was going to get one.
    After looking at it I bought a Glock 38, in .45gap.
    A lot a money for a gun that looks a lot like a Glock.

    I'm very fond of MY PPS, but I'm still having difficulty in getting used to that DAMNED mag release lever!

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Toyed with it for a while but just can't get over that damned trigger guard mag release. Too much of a deviation in my manual of arms to get over. It's also not as slim as my Taurus 709 Slim which was my choice over the PPS as my backup weapon.

    I still carry my G26 off duty but the Taurus replaced the LCP.
