No sweat Badgerstate.....just add another $125 or so to your pistol budget and get a PPQ.

Thats kind of my dilemma. I shot a PPQ in 9mm recently and loved it. Everything Ive head about the Creed says its a sweet little shooter though, its just much simpler and thus, considerably cheaper than Walther's options.
Not to mention if I get a Creed instead of a PPQ, I can afford to get a PPK/S when/if they come available or maybe get a PPQ .22LR.

Keep in mind the PPQ will have a better trigger and being one of the best triggers available, has 3 adjustable back straps that can help fit the pistol better to your hand and fingers, more compact in size if concealed carry is ever a possibility, and is built to a higher quality standard. For not much extra money those are significant improvements.

I dont get where you guys say that the PPQ is only a little bit more than the Creed. I couldnt buy a Creed for about $375, PPQs are around $650. The PPS and CCP are around $500 but not the PPQ.
I probably should just spend the money for the PPQ though because Im looking for a gun that I'll have for life.

Dang, guns are expensive up North.



Same store, Creed is $329.00, WALTHER PPS M2 LE $429.05 and CCPs in various colors and finishes around $400.

GrabAGun has PPQ M2 9MM in stock for $499. I have bought a number of pistols from them and all went well.

Hehehe, see image above

Says fixed sights, but the rear sight is windage adjustable, and the front sight can be adjusted by replacing it with a front sight of a different height. Can't remember if that baggie with all the different front sights came with the PPQ or the P99c.

I just bought mine and went to the range and put 150 rounds through it.

I own a CCP and that's what I'm familiar with.

The creed is like trying to shoot with a brick. I have to get used to the trigger.

JP, did you pick up and fondle the pistol prior to purchasing it? Most people will tell you they think Walt (as in Disney) sent Tinkerbell buy their house to measure their hand while they were asleep.....as the PPQ just seems to melt into their hand. The CREED's grip is patterned after the PPQ.

I myself have not fired a PPQ but I did hold one. The grip feels very much like the PPQ but with out the additional grip size option. The PPQ is a target gun or hunting if you enjoy that. The Creed is more a home defense gun with a similar PPQ trigger and feel. I bought my Creed for 329 and have fired over 1000 rounds with out one issue. It sits on my wall magnet ready for self defense. I take it out and shoot it at the range also and really enjoy it. My trigger is at about 4 lbs now and is great. Would I have bought the PPQ instead if I had the money? Yes, but for what I am using it for it made no sense for me.
