Default Glock 26 vs walther pps

I'm looking for a CCW. Glock is a bit fat but legendary for its reliability. Walther looks really nice and thin. Other than that, I haven't heard much about it. I would really appreciate feedbacks from owners of both.

All I can tell you is that walther is a great firearm but a bit picky on ammo they don't like cheap rounds! But I have never owned a glock so I can't compare them personally this post might give me a good reason to go buy one to try

I carry a 26 everyday. I love it. It lives on my 4:00 in a Crossbreed Supertuck. That being said, I am thick, or even dare I say, a little beefy.

A close friend, on the other hand, carries a PPS in .40 S&W. I think he carries IWB also. Walther makes great pistols; reliable, accurate, and classy.

Regarding weight the Glock 26 and Walther PPS or almost identical. The walther is going to be much thinner than the Glock and as a result of that it has a lower magazine capacity of 6,7, or 8. The Walther has the "European" style magazine release that is located on the trigger guard whereas the Glock's magazine release is just a standard button. I find that on the Glocks that unless it's a generation 4 or has an extended magazine release button I have to change my grip dramatically to use it, but that's just my experience with Glocks.

Regarding what you choose that's all up to you. You need to go to some local gunshops and take a look at them and compare the two, and see which one feels the best to you.

My summer EDC is a PPS in .40, have thousands of rounds through it, ZERO malfunctions of any type, accurate, powerful, and thin...Don't own a G26 but a G30 instead is my winter EDC, it is a bit fatter and since I prefer to carry IWB, it tends to print a bit more than the Walther. It's all a matter of where you plan to carry it and comfort since both of therse guns are top notch...imho...Only drawback to the PPS is it's a bit more expensive off the shelf, only comes with one mag, spares are around $60 a piece, and a smaller capacity than the Glocks. I trust both with my life so that may tell you something as well. Either way, it's like 6 in one hand, half dozen in the other, you can't go wrong with either weapon...imho...

Besides the PPS
Walther also makes the P99c. Same size as the Glock 26 and costs less than the PPS or Glock. CDNN has them on sale for $439. Save some money and get a built in rail. If money is no object get the PPS. Walther makes great pistols in 9 or 40.

You can't go wrong with either brand

I just got a glock 36. It's their slim grip compact for a 45cal. It is great for concealed carry and packs a punch. The recoil is low and carries great. Just another idea to throw out there.

Same here, minus the beefy part. I'm 6'4", about 200 and it still disappears under a normal sized t-shirt in my Crossbreed Supertuck. I'm wanting to get something like a Galco Stow-n-Go to try appendix carry, but haven't done it as of yet. While I have no experience with the Walther so I can't tell you anything one way or the other on it, although I'm sure it's a great firearm, I can wholeheartedly recommend the 26.

Thanks for all the great advices. I guess I'm down to capacity. Does anyone have any experience using your EDC? Any comment on 7 vs 10+ in the mag?

It seems to me that on the day you need your EDC, conditions may not be ideal, i.e., a chance to change mags. But again, it's probably as unlikely to have a shoot-out that lasts over 7 rounds.

All comments are welcome.

That has not been my experirnce with my PPS. It runs at 100% with anything I feed through it from cheap Remington UMC FMJs to Hornady TAP ammo and +Ps. I Love my PPS and as far as I'm concerned it's just about the perfect CC gun. Light, easy to hide and exceedingly accurate and reliable. I carry a spare mag in my off pocket or the back pocket of my jeans.
