Walther PPS 9mm
by Erik L Date Added: Saturday 10 November, 2012
First off, this is my second experience with Buds (first Springfield TRP 1911) and they were great. Fast, friendly and quick turn around on shipping. Also, best prices I've found even with other discounts available to me. Onto the Walther--I first fell in love with this gun when I rented it from a local range. Fun to shoot, accurate, very light, super concealable and what you would expect from a German product. Only negative is 1 year warranty and one weak point to me is the removable back strap that is mostly plastic on plastic. Other than that, I love the lack of rail safety or back grip safety like the XDS and Shield. In a stressful or injured hand situation, all's you need to do is have one in the chamber and pull trigger. The PPS will also fire without the magazine in. Being a former federal law enforcement officer and other federal agency officer, I have vast experience, training and expertise with various weapons. This is my favorite small/slim polymer pistol I've yet to shoot. Lastly, my gun case came with a 7 and 8 round mag and two sized back straps. I have average/normal size hands and I found the standard back strap and 7round mag were perfect for me. Perfect for range and carry. Today was its first day at the range, after an initial cleaning and it performed flawlessly. Backed up the target to 15yds (45feet) and all within 5 point circle (aka heart area) on Federal Trans target. Grouping wasn't as tight as my full-size 1911 but still very good for a small, light 9mm. This is now my everyday carry. Only issue at range was when my girlfriend used it for some point shooting/stress drills and feeding issues occurred. After some quick looks, it seemed her support hand wrist wasn't locked out completely. Whenever I used it, no problems though. She's still learning. Anywho, there's alot of talk about the XDS and Shield as major competitors to the PPS. And trust me I did my research on all 3 before buying. XDS isn’t available in 9mm which I wanted and also has a back strap safety like a 1911 which I didn’t like for everyday carry. The Shield has a slide safety and its grip/trigger didn't appeal to me. If you’re looking for an everyday carry, polymer and 9mm pistol that is an amazing product, you won’t be disappointed with the PPS. My two cents. Enjoy!
