Hmm. The PPQ looked a bit thick in the slide, to me. The PPS is like a really skinny single stack Glock 26, I thought.


It is thicker. Just depends on your particular needs. Both are great in their own right.
Can't go wrong with either. Go for it.
Just be prepared to do some serious grinnin'.

FWIW, I made my first trip to Guns & Leather in Greenbrier today. Lots of guns in that store.
Did come away with a LULA for the AR & a bottle of Militec-1.
They do have some PPQs in stock, 9 & 40.

Man you can't go wrong with the PPS. I did a review on subcompact 9mm's and it really shined.

If you want a PPS you need to try the new Kahr CM9.

I have owned several Kahr's, guys. I really wanted to like them. 2 CW9's, a K9, a K9 2003 Elite, a CW45... hated all of 'em. But thanks...

PPS's are sexy little handguns, I'd want one one of these days. I got a couple of P99's like them, I don't feel the PPQ. Especially since it does not have second strike capabilities.

I bought a PPQ today after doing a lot of research. Was very happy with it. Let a guy at the range take a few shots with it when he saw what it was. You could literally see a difference on his target, his Glock shots were more spread out, the PPQ was much tighter and he fired the shots off faster! I'm not great with it yet since I'm just starting out, but he said it made him dislike his Glock enough after just 1 magazine that he was going to get one.

I did fondle a PPQ the other day. Trigger felt really good, and it fit my hand very well; but it seemed sizewise to be on a par with a G17, and it only holds 15 rds. That big, and 2 less rds doesn't seem like a good idea, to me.
