Walther pps light or laser or Combo. I don't know what to pick. I hear Lights are better. laser are unreliable a lot of time an not good for everyday carry. So I thought Combos but they are Big. Thanks for your help.

I tried my PPS with my TLR3 but didn't care for it on there. So neither a light nor a laser for me. Just some night sights and my Protac HL in the other hand if I need light.

I'm not sure about the size of lasers that would fit on there, but the light seems to negate the whole principle of the slim and small package that makes the PPS so desirable (IMO).

My opinion is based on the idea of carrying it concealed. If it's a nightstand gun, that's a different story altogether.

Can you recommend a brands of night sights.
Or the name of a company you can recommend.
I do know there are about 5 different types of night sights.
And I have narrowed it down to 2. Just don't know what company would be a better. So I won't have any mounting problems.

Neither. If I put a light or laser on it then I'd lose the super slimness of it for IWB carry (Why I bought it) and then I'd have to OWB carry it. At that point there are better choices for carry.

Meprolight makes good night sights.

x2, plus it wouldn't fit in either of my holsters.

I put Mepro's on mine, also use a
Streamlight ProTac HL Streamlight ProTac HL
in my off hand when I need a light. I prefer an unattached light.

Meprolight 18802's for me.

I will put up with having to use the Protac in my off hand with the PPS but I personally prefer the feeling of having two hands on the pistol and a weapon mounted light for ease of use. Just don't ask me to conceal carry it with the light attached. When I conceal carry my PPS, I have the Protac with me. If I was to carry either my PPS or PPQ with a light attached it would most certainly be OWB (as stated above) and far less concealable. I would also probably have the Protac with me as well.

Just cause there's a rail don't mean you gotta use it. I don't think the rail has a purpose other than if you were to press the gun into HD service, and that would only be something I'd do if I had absolutely no other choice. None of my weapon lights fit on the PPS anyway.

As for night sights, I had a bad experience with Meprolight so I stay away from them. That aside, I find the daytime sight picture to be weak because of the lack of a white outline. Trijicon all the way for me.
