Default Glock 19 or Walther PPQ?

I have been all set on getting a LEO/blue label Glock 19 with my GSSF coupon for the past several months until I started reading (and You Tubing) about the Walther PPQ. Everything I've seen and heard is that the PPQ is amazing. I haven't been able to shoot the PPQ yet because none of the local ranges have it. PPQs are also sold out everywhere, and Walther is quitting their distribution agreement with S&W. QUESTION: I got 500 bucks. I can get a LEO/GSSF G19 with night sights for $500 -- or I can get a discounted (but brand new) stock Walther PPQ for $500. Which one should I get?

My personal experience with Walther was only friend's P22. Then decided to get Ruger SR22 instead, arriving monday at my LGS.
But i'm a huge fan of Glock. G19 Gen4 was my first handgun. So far it had brought home his other 3 friends.
If i were you, deciding between those 2 which both have the same price tag, i'd definitely go with the Glock.
Just my 2cents..

I'm definitely a Glock man, but I would still say wait until you can handle both and see which one feels better in your hands. The are each excellent guns.

Or just buy a Glock.

This^. Some traveling may be required. Perhaps a dealer can let someone they've sold a Walther to know of your interest. S&W/Walther should be able to provide a list of dealers.

Personally I don't care for Glock or Walther but of the two I would say Walther.

Now that is just my opinion. Both Glock and Walther are very common guns and most ranges will rent them. Your best thing to do is rent them both and shoot them side by side to determine which one you shoot best and performs the best for your style of shooting. That is the best gun for you.

the Walther PPQ does fit my hand better than the Glock, so for me the choice would be the Walther. but for you, it may be the Glock. you need to handle both to get the feel for them and then make a decision. what feels right to me or someone else may not be right for you.

Thanks guys for all the input. I'm going with the G19 because I'm very familiar with it and I've shot it. As great as the reviews have been on the PPQ, I have no personal experience with it. And since I can't find a PPQ anywhere to handle or shoot, I can't drop 5 bills on it -- even if it is a better gun.
