The PPS is a superb CCW pistol.....

It's been so long, I don't remember if I had gotten my PPS before the forum crashed.:silly:

Though I voted the 40 cal as my favorite self defense cartridge on the other thread, I have grown to LOVE my Walther PPS 9mm as a carry gun. It is unbelievably thin, lightweight, eats everything I feed it, and is far more accurate than I can shoot. In short, the more I shoot it, the more I like it.

I picked up a Fobus paddle holster for it a few weeks ago and I really like it. I swear, I really forget I am even carrying this gun sometimes.:guns:

    I was dreaming about that gun some time back. You might have made me get one in the future, thanks for the info.

    Fired Phillip's about a week ago.....that is the best handling sub-compact I think I've ever fired.

    While the pancake holster is probably very comfortable, I think the true value of such a thin gun is only realized IWB. That sucker is so light and thin, it would be great for those hard to conceal times with only a T-shirt.

    Looks nice
    I remember you had gotten something, though.

    That is a pretty little thing. A friend of mine has Walther like that and it is uber concealable. Congrats on a great buy.

    Need to shoot one! I recall Wambli loves his but I handled one at the LGS and it felt iffy in my hands, like it was about to fall apart, I think it is also made by S&W and their version of the PPK has a bad reputation but seeing that the members here like them I got to consider it again.

    The PPS is made in Germany by Walther (In my first pic you can see the markings on the frame). It is distributed in the U.S. by S&W.

    Putting aspirations of European and World domination aside, it can't be argued against that old "Gerry" certainly knows how to make personal arms!

    How's it compare to the Ruger LC9? The PPS is on my list but I can't find as much written about it.

    Arms? Hell, who has ever heard anything bad about any type of Teutonic engineering (outside of social engineering of course)? Walthers are actually a great deal for the quality if you price them against H&K

    Thanks, pehaps that single stack 9mm Glock I am waiting for has been replaced for a gun that exists!
