I agree with what you are saying I on the other hand I train with and use the PPQ. My wife can't rack the slide on the PPQ so I got her the CCP witch feels like a smaller version of the PPQ except for the trigger.

Now that being said I do believe you are right when you say the mental side of self protection should happen before you pull the weapon. I feel this way as soon as you pull a lot of things come into the action. I train mentally every day that I carry that weapon. You have to be 100% committed to the fact that you may have to take a life to save yours. Then you have to be 100% ready to except the consequences for your action if you are wrong, or bad things will happen and that can't ever be changed.

I feel after you know where your bullet is going and you know how to put it there with anyone of your weapons you should be able to pick up the weapon point and shoot with a reasonable thought of where the bullet is going. After all most any center mass shot will stop most people.

My gripe is with the general build quality. My gun worked fine, but fit on internal parts is sloppy. Grind marks on feed ramp, plunger pins loose in the holes in the polymer frame, rough finish on sliding parts..... I understand building to a price point, but the S&W M&P Shield is cheaper, totally reliable and is a built to the same quality standards as the entire M&P line.

Mine CCP was 100% reliable, but I sold it to my friend who just wants a cool carry gun.

No longer a CCP owner and probably won't buy another Walther. Right now Walther pretty much sucks. Sorry

For a fun range toy perhaps, but this was heavily advertized specifically as CCW - something your life would depend on...

G43Shooter....here is another issue that might be right up your alley. Walther pistols are a bit hard to find around here. One good gun shop here has a 9mm PPX and a 9mm PPX. Not that there is anything wrong with a couple of PPXs....but that is it. A lot of shops have none....others a P22, PK380 or the new PPK/S.

So, giving up on the CCP for the present this afternoon I purchased the only P99c I've ever seen. It was sitting next to a CCP that has been sitting there for over a week. Anyway, the only thing I can see that I don't like about the P99 is the grip is at the maximum circumference for my hands. I can easily hold it and it does have the large back strap on it so that will come off. If there were more Walthers around here...there would probably be more sales. Just sayin'. M1911

It would not be fair to Walther to judge their entire line, both past and present, off of only one model. Especially from someone who has almost zero experience with the line.

Not so sure that's a universal truth. If I was sure all the issues (especially the sub-par trigger) were fixed, I'd buy one asap.

Don't trust your life to that myth. The truth is, even it does stop the majority, it is WHEN they stop that matters to you, many folks with great shots have been killed by the person who doesn't fall down in Hollywood style, and kills the good guy. Many cops on the streets will tell you that, many vets on Iwo Jima will tell you that, after shooting the enemy with a 30'06, not a puny 9mm... Never underestimate how tough some animals and folks can be in some situations. NEVER!

Go to your local gun store, and ask most customers what they think of a CCP. Most won't know what it is in most cases, and have never heard a complaint about it or most other guns. This limited audience here, while some may have reason to complain, is not as big or well known as some here seem to think it is with overboard comments beyond the facts of their issue to complain about. The guy comes on here to hear ideals and thoughts, along with issues, but may be scared away ... and never pay any attention to the chaos of agenda based comments... If you own one and have real reasons, then have a go, but bashing the poor guy is not helpful, as he is offering to seek solutions. If you don't like Walthers, don't buy one, that is your right, but that is not an issue is it? The free market will determine how long the CCP haunts the haters, and I think that will be a very long time.

I own several brands of firearms and I base my opinions on my experience with them. I realize Walther guns vary in quality, but they need to understand that you are only as good as your last product to most consumers. I have concerns about build quality and I posted them. Defend if you feel the need to. But that was not the purpose of this thread. Take care and happy shooting!

My only gripe is that I have not been able to even hold a CCP in my hand anywhere in my neck of the woods yet. We have a Cabela's, Gander Mountain, and a little longer drive away a Bass Pro store. None have had a CCP in stock yet. I'd love to see a CCP in the flesh.
