I would imagine it cells a lot better then the CCP. No one seems interested in the CCP but you still hear a lot of good things about the PPS.

Just can't get passed that removable blackstrap that completely renders the firearm inert.

Might as well add a magazine disconnect, pop-up flag indicators for loaded chambers, ambi exterior thumb safeties or even a decocker to go along with that paddle release.

The M2 is a better choice for me.

^^Yes, that was and is a thing to consider.....a very stupid thing to allow into the design of a defensive gun. However, I have this unusual ankle holster that I bought on ebay, made by Alessi, that was for a Glock 29/30. It actually hides a large frame compact very well, and is more comfortable than some other ankle rigs I have. It also accommodates a Walther P5C, S&W .45 Shield, and (you guessed it) a Walther PPSM1. As such, that Walther is the smallest of the four guns, and the PPS is now being carried more often than the other guns. I do, however, feel quite well armed when carrying the Glock 29 10mm with 11 rounds in it. Almost double the rounds as the PPS with the short magazine.

I agree plus I never liked the way the M1 felt in hand every time I picked one up. If they didn't make the M2 version I'd still have a Shield.

A rubber grip sleeve solves the back strap issue.

I found that to be true but did not like the way the rubber sleeve caught my clothing... had the disabling backstrap been done away with I'd still have my gen 1 PPS.

Yep. I paid over $400 and felt like I got a bargain. At $299, itís a steal.
