Default Walther PPQ to rent/shoot?

Long time lurker here.

I recently became intrigued by the Walther PPQ M1. I noticed that EBRW will do an SSE on one, but I would love to actually put some rounds down range in one before plunking down the cash.

Anyone know of a Range around here that might have one I could shoot? Field Time didn't last weekend. :(

Failing a range, anyone have one who's willing to meet up at a range and let me shoot theirs? I'll cover range time and your choice of ammo if so. Field Time is my preferred range, but I'll drive to meet you if you're open to it.

I have a USPc .45, and LOVE the magazine release. Was looking to get something in 9mm, and the PPQ has solidly seen great reviews, has a mag release I (should) like, and let's be honest, looks real nice.

I haven't shot many striker fired pistols, which is why I want to try before I buy.

I'm at Insight range in Artesia most Fridays. (Plus I'm willing to go almost any time). If you want to try one come by and I'll let you out a few rounds through mine. PPQ M1 in 9mm.
I have a membership @ Insight but I have never been to Field Time and would like to see it so I'm good with that too.

I got my M1 from OC Firearms. Cheaper than EBR or having it shipped to OC Armory.

OP, you can shoot mine at Field Time if you'd like. Send me a PM and we can arrange a time.

I'd like to get in on that action also. Do you guys think you can make it to the next Field Time monthly shoot?

I got interested in one of these too. OC Armory said they can't get Walther.
How much does OC Firearms get for them? Seems to me I saw a listing for one in the commercial sale section for $640 but was out of the area so I'd have to have it transferred - Mike wants $125 to do that. Ouch! I'd want the 4" one, I guess there's a 5" too.

Kind of thought maybe go PS2022 instead. Easier to get and costs less. You guys that have them, did you compare it to the 2022?

Sweet! How's it working out for you? I have always wanted one and it's good to know where I can.

Any chance I could try it out sometime? I haven't found a range that rents one out and have been really looking forward to it.

Don't even think about it just buy it. Still the best trigger out there for a striker fired pistol. Ergos are awesom.

Sorry for the random bump here. Very new shooter here interested in getting my first pistol before SSE goes away and was looking at the PPQ. The only negative I've heard about it is the muzzle flip and I'd like to try before buying it. Anyone know of any local ranges that has these to rent?

I'd highly recommend attending one of the monthly shoots if you're interested in trying out a PPQ. Next one is on the 23rd at FT3.

Wink Wrong, unless your button hurt

The Original or M-1 is superior to all pistols in many ways.
I will say the PPQ is the best in the world.

The M-1 is better than the M-2 in one BIG way, the magazine release.
Because of that one reason, I wouldn't even consider buying the M-2.

The M-2 has old style button mag release.
And in that area where the button is, there's some button guarding plastic that sticks out a little bit and may bug your middle finger while shooting.
Not a real big deal but why use an old fashioned button release when you can operate a paddle release more efficiently.
It's quicker and practically effortless.
Your trigger finger comes down onto it and moves a total of 1/4 inch to manipulate.

I guess some old school guys and girls can't get that button memory out of their skulls to enjoy ergonomic innovative ease.

They cried loud and long enough for WALTHER to go backwards in design in order to appease them.

Do yourself a favor, don't even worry about trying it out at the range, and go buy the original PPQ. Designed for 9 mm.,but .40 is just fine, it's what I own.
Go get one (or two ) before they're gone.
Anyone can find the old button reliease in similar guns.

To this day I can't find another semiautomatic that compares.
I'm spoiled from it.
