Default Walther PPS .40 or Glock .40?

Looking to get one of these two for concealed carry, but having a tough time deciding. Any insight would be appreciated.

It mostly depends on how it feels to you. The grip angle is different on the glock. The G-27 has less felt recoil over the PPS. Price point is very close. The PPS comes with one mag and the G-27 comes with 2 mags. I would recommend you go to the range and rent both, you will know which one fits you better. My choise would be the G-27.

I have both. the PPS is much thinner because it's a single stack. Both pistols are great shooters. Can't go wrong with either one IMO.

There's a shooting range here that's rents them out... I'll just shoot'em both and see what draws me in more. Thanks for the info!

What he said...to me, it's like 6 in one, half dozen in the other. The PPS will conceal somewhat better when wearing lighter clothes. Both awesome shooters but the PPS is a bit on the pricy side, extra mags going for about $60 apiece.

I say Glock, its a all around better gun than the Walther IMO, cheaper more reliable, and lots more accesories for glocks....

Ruger?? Did you mean Walther? I'm curious as to how you arrived at the better reliability conclusion...I've had very good luck with my PPS, just wondering if you'd mind sharing your experience...

Walthers are a good gun, but I just dont think for the price you can beat a Glock most early Walthers were good but alot of the newer ones just arent made as well as they use to be... Glock has be proven to be reliable and will run no matter what ya throw at it... show me a Walther that will do what a glock will do, dont get me wrong Id take one if given to me, but im not gonna spend my hard earned money on something other than a Glock thats just me, it all comes down to what the end user wants in his or her guns and how much they are willing to spend,....

glock would be my vote .... I shot a pps long time ago and I didnt really like it, it was bulky had a too high for me bore axis which also aided in muzzle flip. Is ugly looks like an embellished hi point . But was extremely reliable.

Glock Low bore axis g27 compact size for CC fits the need , reliable , And I know im gonna catch heat for saying this but I think glocks are a handsome weapon. Simple not a lotta crap to muck up the profile. and the customer service is excellent and aftermarket is extremely well supported.

just my 0.02$
