    Smile Walther PPQ 9mm: So Far So Good

    Mid June 2011 I purchased a Walther PPQ in 9mm from my local store.

    Aside from my frustrating holster quest, I have some good impressions of this model.

    As of Northeast Storm October 2011, I've put approximately 1000 rounds though. Ammo has been a mixture of Georgia Arms loaded ammo, Winchester white box, UMC bulk pack and some Gold Dot LE Duty hollow points. Most ammo runs were 115 grain ball except a few mags of Gold Dot.

    Reliability: No malfunctions whatsoever.

    I've done some basic drills, majority being two handed standing target positions. Around 1/4 of these rounds were single strong and weak hand drills, single and double tap. Around 10 mag dumps as fast as I can (ammo waster)

    I usually do a cursory cleaning after each range visit, but I've gone 2 trips without a cleaning in between. I oil and then dry it off with clean cloths, in effect running it dry. I never carry a wet gun and that's my personal preference.

    This is by no means a torture or accuracy test, and my main goal for training is to influence my bad eyes to hit something (anything!) consistently.

    What I like so far:
    The trigger, crisp and consistent
    The sights
    The grip, fits my hand well with the smaller back strap
    No malfunctions, with the cheap not so hot ammo
    The price is a bit high, but will no doubt come down

    What I don't like:
    Too new for in depth holster info and options

    No DA option for carry

    Walther mag release (you either love it or hate it). It doesn't bother me much, but it's operation is too darn much like a trigger pull and in the general trigger area. With gloves on or an adrenaline dump, I fear an accidental trigger pull.

    Bravo

    iwb holster option

    You could try Checking out nate^2 tactical.com or google it. They make amazing iwb holsters and tuckable ones as well. I use one and they have been known to make a custom holster for newer guns then add the design to their inventory. Great moisture barrier and invisible in shorts and tshirt

    Took my PPQ to the range this past weekend. I was impressed with the constant and clean trigger, and some respectable groups. Never experienced a jam, failure to feed or extraction problem. The recoil is well balanced and its easy to get back on target with some decent iron sights. Two thumbs up on this one!!

    I seem to enjoy a post more when the author, when refering to a particular gun/holster/ammo/thing/stuff, puts a link to it so as to allow his or her readers an easier time of check'n out the thing/stuff. ;-)

  7. How easy is this to conceal? I'm looking for a 9mm to be my daily carry.

    That is going to be a hard question for him to answer. It depends on the person. I'm sure that some guys here could conceal an AK47 between their man boobs, while some of the ladies probably print a piece of rice in their pocket.

    My apologies friends. For some reason not receiving email notifications for thread replies.

    The PPQ is bigger and heavier than a G19 by around 3.5 ounces. Not the easiest (for me) to carry around.

    I also try to refrain from posting too many links, as I myself cringe when I click. Especially the blind link format of this site. I'd much rather read the address and type it in. Since Al Gore invented the internet, I can't remember ever getting a virus outside of clicking on something.

    But will try to type out the thing stuff dot com 8-)

    Based on your handle, I can recommend you connect with some helpful contacts.

    A couple examples:

  11. I am new to this site so I'm sorry if my question has already been asked/answered, but can anyone recommend a
    leather outside waist holster for the Walther PPQ? thanks
