    Goddamned right, Foe, on the PPQ Classic (or M1 as the new(er) crowd calls 'em!)

    Graham (88turbo on here) was up a year or so ago, he fired my Q, PPS, and my .30-06, they're all great. He's got a PK380 too, and it's ok though I don't really care for .380.

    I had a PPQ Navy (M2) but I sold it because A, it had the button, and B, two otherwise identical 9mm pistols was a little redundant, especially since the mags are very similar but non-interchangeable.

    I've not yet has a chance to shoot the PPS M2, but I'd probably love it, aside from the button.

    I WISH WISH WISH Walther would make the Q45 available with the Classic mag release, too. Bastards.

    To me, a pistol has to have a slide release, that's what keeps me away from the PK380. I've also heard a lot about feed failures, and being extremely sensitive to limp wristing.

    I rarely ever use the slide release, despite the fact the PPQ has two big ole honkin' levers on it LOL.

    The PPS is such a chore to thumb the release, and I was always taught to use the slingshot method anyway. The rear sight (Mepro) on my PPQ is a big blocky bastard, one can rack it by catching the sight on a belt, and having at it. I've done it, but nothing more than a trial. Odds are, if I'm ever in a SHTF ordeal I'll be running on instinct and will revert to what I've always done...slingshotting the slide with a new mag. Though the PPQ will auto forward if you slap the mag in with any kind of force. All three of my PPQ' would, in fact, even the Navy, and it was brand spankin' new when I got it.


    What's your take on the PPX/Creed? I've handled and shot a few, the trigger is nice, as good as a PPQ or even a P99 in SA mode......the only thing I am concerned with is the three piece barrel....

    I bought a Creed in March, put 1200 through it. And thought it was the best pistol ever. Then a guy at the range let me shoot his PPQ. It was all over after that. I bought the PPQ in July and sold the Creed in August. Probably the best polymer hammer pistol ever, but PPQ is superior in every way. Also, it's (the PPQ) slightly smaller in every dimension, which was weird. What I didn't like was the long reset and the rounded trigger guard. Never had a single malfunction, and never had an issue with the barrel.

    Long time since I've seen this thread. My current gun/pointy thing collection includes the same Remington Model 700 .30-06, a Lakefield Mark II .22 bolt action, a Remington semi automatic 12 gauge, a Savage .308 (bought for my husband, he's starting to get into hunting), and my new this year toy, a Centerpoint 370 crossbow. Going moose hunting next week (Sept 25-30), then deer hunting with the crossbow from October 2-26, then deer hunting with the .30-06 from the 27th through November. This will be my first moose hunt (we have a moose tag lottery, our hunting group won it this year), and will also be my first year hunting with the crossbow. I am actually looking more forward to using the crossbow than the rifle! Just using it at the cottage, sighting it in, I've been having a blast. I even pulled a Robin Hood with it, and put an arrow inside another arrow.

    There have been some changes since the first pic was taken: The Remington 700 has a new synthetic stock and the .22 has a scope. Second pic is the Savage, the day we brought it home. Third pic is the crossbow.

    That's a hell of a crossbow LOL. I've been wanting to get one, just have never pulled the trigger, pun intended.

    Foe, I've also got a P99c, but I'm not too in love with a SA/DA trigger. After carrying my PPS since 2013, what I want in a doublestack carry is probably a P99cQA. That's "quick action" and it's more like a glock style trigger than the P99AS OR the PPQ. I just don't want a soft, short, easy trigger on my carry, though of course I'm more accurate with such. It's hard to find a P99cQA in 9mm, I've got one .40 but I ought to sell it. I should add I've sold the Navy some time back and have kinda kicked myself in the ass since. Don't sell a Walther

    I'm a guy who likes to build shit, so I think my next gun is going to start out as an 80% AR lower receiver and grow out from there.

    I've been kicking around the idea of an AR10, or possibly something that's multi-caliber, with the eventual goal of .300 Blackout, suppressed. I've watched some Hickok45 shit on youtube about the .300BLK, and it looks like more fun than a hot tub full of willing women. I had a Bushmaster in .223/5.56, and while it was fun, I'm a guy who likes to feel a little recoil, see shit come apart when a .30 bullet nails it, that sort of thing.

    And as much as detest glock, I've been considering a 10mm long slide. I could always throw a jarvis barrel in it and run .40, too. And .357SIG, and...and....


    I've gotta get a safety ball for my Mossy 500, and will get a ghost ring/fiber front sight for a little better sighting. (was mentioning this to another forum, some jackwagon said that shotguns don't need aimed...LOL. n00bs)

    80% you say? They're a heck of a lot of fun to build up, just gotta keep 922r in mind as you do it.
