First 9mm Carry Pistol: PPS M2

New here but not new to forums---started in 1999. Just ordered a PPS M2 after considering a P365 and the Glock 43. The 43 does not have the mass that I require for a carry pistol and I have not had good luck with Sigs since assemblly moved to the U.S. Additionally, I am a Tennifer (sp?) proponent and currently carry tennifer-based Glocks and HK's. I carry in Kydex and couldn't care less about the finish as long as the pistol goes bang and doesn't rust with normal care. I have always been a .40/.45 guy but in a sub-compact frame, 9mm is as large as I will go. As a big for caliber person, I will be carrying 147 Gr. JHP Subsonics. I am looking forward to taking delivery on this handgun. My only fear is I will want another Walther after this one.

Welcome aboard. like you I have a fondness for the PPS M2. it is fair to say it is my favorite semi ever. It is perfect for my need, my hand strength, and by budget. I am using the JHP part of the Winchester Train and Defend ammo for EDC. It offers consistent expansion out of a 3” barrel with 15 inches of penetration. Beats any other JHP including 147 gr HST standard and +P. Having the right gun is important and having the best round is too.

You picked one of the best. The PPS M2 has to be one of the most underrated guns ever.

Welcome abroad. You made a good choice. The PPS is the best shooting polymer single stack 9mm out there.

I dont think the gun is so much underrated as it is ignored. The people who actually shoot it tend to like it.

Welcome aboard. You've ordered a fine pistol. Now, if you want the best that Walther has to offer today in carry pistols there is always the P99AS...... just sayin'.

Great choice. I've been carrying my PPS M2 exclusively since around Memorial Day. It's a great option to relieve my P99c which is normally my workhorse. I also have 147 grain JHPs (HSTs) in all my 9mms. Welcome aboard!
