Default Walther PPS 9mm

I purchased a new Walther PPS 9mm yesterday at buds for $504. I took it out shooting today and I was very impressed. I shot a little over 100rds through it just for function and accuracy testing. I even shot a few rounds at a 12" square metal target at 128yrds hitting it with about 75% of the shots. This little gun is very accurate. The only issue I had was that the gun failed to lock back on an empty magazine a few times, but there were no jams or other failures of any kind.

When I first got the gun, the trigger was a little gritty and rough, but after about 1000 pulls of dry fire practice and then the hundred rounds I shot today it has actually smoothed out nicely, becoming one of my favorite triggers.

The long and the short of it is that I really like this gun as an off duty carry piece and I fully intend to purchase the .40S&W version in the near future.

I've shot the PPS and was very impressed with the gun.

I did find it a tad small for my hands and think the PPQ would be a better fit for my taste.

As a BUG I thing it will serve you well. Nice snag rpritchard0001!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Thanks. Have you shot the PPQ? I've heard a lot of good things about them. Apparently everybody that shoots one of them falls in love with them.

Same results here,(in .40) though not at distance (never tried). In 3 or so years, not one hiccup, no slide lock issues and I trust my life to it.

You should try stretching it out sometime. I think you will be pleased. I know that there is no practical reason to shoot a 3" barrel gun at 100+ yards, but it is crazy fun!

I know, I did that @ 100yds with my G30, learned a ton and was fun as hell. My PPS aka Dark Stanley is my spring/summer EDC so he's in hibernation right now...

Only fondled one. It would need to shoot really well to replace my BHP.

I could see the PPS 9mm as an alternative to my current BUG, the Ruger LCR.

I have shot both the PPQ and PPS in 9mm. The PPQ's trigger is better but, the PPS is very tough to beat for IWB carry. I'd like to pick up a PPS in 40.
