Thumbs up PPQ M2 5" in IDPA - SSP

Update on how my gun is performing.

Last outing, 2nd in accuracy against the 1911s. It is a very fast gun and the lack of points down prove it! I need to improve my reloading times.

Taking "Secret Agent" to the 2015 Alabama IDPA States. Anyone else shooting this gun in SSP? I learn more about it every range visit.

The only thing I changed were the sights. Dawson .125w notch rear (all black) and ended up with the .150T x .125W front red F/O. I found the .180T recommended front height was still shooting too low for the way I operate. 25 yard shots are no longer a problem.

I hope others are finding this gun to be a real player in IDPA!

Take care,
Bob

Way-ta-go Bob. I run a .165 tall front sight....maybe I'll try one of those .150's one day.

Nice! Is your front sight also a Dawson? I'm new to the PPQ and haven't done any competitive shooting but would like to try it out in the near future. I might start my setup by copying your sight setup if you don't mind!

The PPQ 5" has really turned a few heads in my local area. There are now 3 of them (mine included) in local IDPA matches. In my hunt for the ultimate sight picture, I ordered a .160Tx.125W and a .160Tx.100W Dawson red f/o front sight for my gun and I have the black rear .125 notch from Dawson also. I run only 124g ammo at 133-136 power factor.

I'm heading out to the range today to practice on the IDPA classifier, mainly stage 3. I'm routinely nearly cleaning stages 1-2 and working on my 45-60' skillset. I have shot my G34 and XDM 5.25 to the low end of SSP/SS and the PPQ sends me to the bottom end of EX and the last 3 training events into master. This gun absolutely rocks!!! There is a classifier next weekend and I want to be the best I can be for the upcoming IDPA Alabama States! No sandbagging allowed!!!

Updates coming........

(if the frame fits the new CCP rules then I'll get a 4" too!)

Another beautiful day on the range in the Florida panhandle! 73F and no rain!!!

I took my time practicing the IDPA classifier today and really took my time getting out of the holster, obtaining the sight picture and then letting things go bang. Even though my times were deliberately slow, the accuracy was way above my normal time/-0 ratio. I like how fast the Dawson sights are to acquire. This gun never seems to amaze me. Walther, you have a fan for life.

Although my local Tier 1 matches are all practice for the upcoming Alabama States, chalk up another win in the SSP/SS division today! Folks really took notice of the 5" Walther and were quick to follow me to the safe area and ask questions.

More shooting; more updates to follow!
