      I really like this pistol. I actually had it on my next to buy list until I handled the VP9. Exceptional pistol!

      The PPQ is next on my Walther list but I wll go for the M1 version because the mags are compatible with my P99. Plus, the paddle release is pretty sweet.

      I think most will agree that the PPQ has the best trigger of any striker fired polymer pistol, to some it may be to light, but still it is the best one out there. It's followed closely by the Sig P320c and then the VP9, all of which IMO are better than a factory Glock.

      In most of the reviews I've seen I'd say it is about 50/50 on preference of the PPQ to the VP9. Personally, I think they are both great triggers, but to say one is better than the other is not exactly right. It comes down to preference. I actually had the PPQ on my list to buy next until I got my hands on the VP9. I preferred the shorter take up on the VP9 to the take up on the PPQ. I thought the break and reset was equal, one no better than the other.

      I really like the trigger on the P320 and tend to think I might like it even better than the VP9, and at $499, I may just have to acquire it. The thing I like a lot about the VP9 is the controls and ergonomics. After holding any pistol, going back to the VP9 feels like going home. It just fits me better than any pistol I've handled, and that's quite a few. And now that 007 has apparently chosen the VP9 in his next film, it looks like it will become even more popular!

      So far I have managed to shoot the Sig P320 and the HK VP9. Both excellent pistols but for me the Sig worked better. Which trigger is better? I think the argument is moot. Some are going to like one better and others will choose the other. I will say (as have others) that the trigger on the Sig feels better when actually shooting it than it does dry-firing it.

      I haven't shot the PPQ (only dry-fired and fondled it) but hope to get a chance. I do agree that all three of these pistols kick Glocks to the curb so far as action and ergonomics are concerned.

      Its believed that the Walther ppq m2 has a relatively high Bore Axis and therefore its more snappy. In these two videos its explained how a heavier guide rod can help tame down the flip. Any first hand opinions on this.

      I've heard that, but not sure how effective it is. I have not tried it, but I don't think it's a real issue.

      I have the PPQ M1 in 9mm Para, and I am very pleased with that gun. A great range and target shooter. No doubt.

      That version has the paddle mag release, which I have come to prefer now.

      I have owned one before. I like the grip of the PPQ over the grip of the P99 A/S.

      In the end, I sold the PPQ, however. I only like DA/SA guns for self defense. The PPQ was only ever going to be a range gun. I ended up selling it to use the $ for something else.

      The long slide version of the PPQ is interesting. I wish they sold the euro version of the P99 A/S that has the PPQ style grip. A long slide version of that would be awesome (the A/S). I'd be tempted to buy that

      We're lucky to have so many good choices in the market now, and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. It will be interesting to check out the new Beretta APX when it comes out.

      Imho

      I have read the reviews, and own several striker fired guns( glock , h-k,sig,walther)--hands down the walther ppq is the best--IMHO--

      I am most accurate with it ---- no issues ever--wifes love it too--BUT there is NOT much difference between these brands functionally. The glock with a match barrel installed is close to as accurate as the others,BUT the trigger feels so cheap..the Walther and H+K are very accurate--out of the box-both have great triggers - I prefer the walther-- again--my choice--- the sig does not compete--good gun-- just walther ppq and the HK VP9 are better


      enjoy yours--

      glock factory triggers suck--what are they thinking? sig ,walther and H+K are MUCH better triggers and more accurate shooters--let the games begin-what will glock do next? compete? or give their fans the finger?

      I prefer the PPQ - on the VP9, my thumbs tend to rest on top of the slide lock, and others have also commented on the lack of the slide's locking back after the last round.

      The PPQ's erogs are amazing, and although there are theoretical concerns about bore axis and muzzle flip, it reacquires rapidly. The best measure of erogs, bore axis, sight radius, etc, is how well it shoots - 30 rounds to the chest at 7 yds, 15 to the head at 15 yds
