Fernando, i had one of the older PPQ's in 40 several years ago. very nice shooting pistol and decently accurate as well. i think you and your wife are going to like it just fine. Walther has a stellar reputation for making quality guns. i really don't think eith of you will be disappointed with the choice you made.

Very nice. Hope you have a bunch of ammo ready. The only downside now is securing and paying for magazines. Walther certainly is proud and stingy with theirs.

I got a PPQ M2 .40 a few months ago and I love it. It comes with an extra +2 magazine by the way. Trigger very smooth, grip length is perfect for me. Glock and XDm are either too long or too short depending on the model. And in my N82 holster it carries very well, though it is slightly thicker than my 1911's.

I can't shoot it as accurately as my 1911's. I'm sure it's the longer trigger pull. And it could use some good night sights. Dollar for dollar it's one of the best guns I've shot. Along with my Kimber Compact CDP, Taurus PT-140 Millennium Pro G2, and Sig P938.

I might go shoot mine today, still trying to get the wife to go. I got her to go fishing last weekend so shooting this weekend might be a no go, lol. I absolutely love my ppq m2 40 so much I can pretty much guarantee another 1 or 2 in my collection in the next year or so. I'm thinking a 5" in .22 and 9mm would be great additions


Never enough guns or ammo

Looks great. Can't wait to shoot it. Any of you guys store yours cocked? I'm not a fan of dry firing and since its striker fired, dry firing on a snap cap just cocks it after I eject the snap cap. I heard that the little red safety flag holds the slide open enough to decock the striker. Yeah yeah, I know it's fine to leave tension on the firing pin spring. I just like the peace of mind knowing all parts are "at rest." Anyone store it with a snap cap in the chamber after dry firing it?

Strike it out on an empty chamber and put it away. It's not going to hurt the gun. A gun that can't be dry fired is worthless IMHO. Only a gun with a mag safety is the exception for dry fire procedure. In competition shooting you drop mag, show clear, and dry fire. If a gun can't do this, get another gun. Walthers can do this

My local range has been flooded the last 2 weekends. It's driving me nuts. I just got a Taurus Millennium Pro G2 .40 that I haven't been able to shoot.

I always dry fire my guns before I store them. I know it isn't recommended for certain guns but even so I think it takes many times to create a problem.

nice Walther there Fernando. i think after you shoot it a few times you're going to like it just fine. i can't remember if you got the 40 or the 9mm, but even the 40 in that pistol is still quite pleasant to shoot, as recoil isn't bad at all.

JJ, some of the gun manufacterers did the magazine safety to help prevent the gun being fired even if a round was chambered and you lost control of the gun. IIRC, i think this was done for LE usage for safety.

Yeah I know, but most guns with mag safeties can't be dry fired without a magazine installed or it could damage the striker. I hate mag safeties
