    Default Saw a traded-in PPQ with two clips and box, basically unused, for $475.

    I might do it.

    Opinions?

    A modern 9mm combat pistol not rated for +P? Very odd.

    Default Think about 25 years from now when you are showing it to the grandkids

    And the polymer handle starts chipping apart before their eyes. The bent sheetmetal parts will then pop out and show what a piece of junk these things really are.

    Firearms should be made from only three materials:

    1) Steel
    2) Walnut
    3) Brass (only in limited amounts)

    Well, plastic grips are allowed if it's an older .45

    All things being equal, the longer barrel versions will be arguably more accurate, the shorter barrel versions will be better for CCW.

    Walther has a good name in the industry.

    The price appears to be approx. $50 - $100 off street price, depending on model. So, not a great bargain in my book as you likely miss out on warranty coverage.

    No. Walnut.



    OK, maybe birch is acceptable, maybe.

    well, it's no 1911... But it feels very good in hand. Better than a Glock.

    So, you pulled the trigger, so to speak, and bought it ?

    Range report pending.

    No walnut on this one either

    25 years from now you probably won't be able to take the chance of showing a firearm off to the grand kids for fear that one of them is properly brainwashed and will report you for child abuse/exposing them to anti-social and un-American relics from the past.

    I find Coltrock to be an acceptable component with firearms. Walther of today is nothing compared to Walther of yesteryear, like many things.

    I guess if you start them young, it doesn't take long. We went from Normandy landings to a guy calling 911 for a misbehaved cat.

    The liberal progressive: A person who stares down a long corridor with lots of side doors. They walk down the hall eyes straight ahead, never opening a side door because there might be something unpleasant or different inside. Doing as they are told, never challenging anything, absolutely sure that they are the smartest person in the room. Reality plays no part in their game.
