I've had my Walthers much longer than my Glock 23. It's probably my least accurate shooter and very far behind my M&P M2.0 forty compact. I've yet to carry the Glock or that M&P but wouldn't hesitate to if needed. I'm just more comfortable with my P99c and PPS primarily for carry. I try to avoid what may be considered shady parts of town but shady people can gravitate anywhere so I try to be prepared regardless.

I brought my 1st and only Glock a few months ago after shooting my buddy’s. Gen 4 19 were th front serrations and steel sights. I prefer my PPQ m2 but still like the G19. I think the G19 is more like my FN509m. If I think things will go bad any of them will work.

EDC I prefer my PPS m2 as I shoot that better then any other sub compact. My FNS9c is a close second. But the baby Glocks are not as easy for me to shoot comfortably and as accurately.

I have a G42 and a CCP M2, and a PPK/S. I did try a PPQ, it just did not feel right in my hand, but it probably did not have the “right” back strap on it for my hand either. I am much more accurate with my CCP, than my Glock. I am more comfortable and confident with my CCP than my Glock or my PPK. Just my 2 cents worth...

Everything else equal, the grip on the PPQ just fits my hand better than any other pistol I've ever held. The Glock grip doesn't even come close. Especially with a Talon grip on it, I will often use it like a stress ball. It's like when Walther designed it they used my hand to shape the grip.

The very first non-Glock polymer striker that I bought was an FNS-9 full size. I liked so much I followed up later with the FNS compact. It is one excellent shooter. It has replaced one of my Glock 19s that I used as my car gun. Put it in the car when I get in and won't have easy access to my OWB holster. Take it out when I get back home.

Talking Glock Fan Buying a Walther

I own a PPQ M2 4" but my job issued a Glock17 Gen4. While both are very similar in size and weight (both 9mm), the Walther blows the Glock away in terms of comfort and accuracy at the range. I have taken 7 friends and co-workers to my indoor range on separate occasions and had them shoot both (about 50 rounds through each) and not one claimed the Glock to be superior. The Walther took the top choice each time. It is a beautiful gun to carry and shoot. The Glock is all hype.

I have said this before and still believe it to be true. I own a few polymer striker fired handguns. I can say something about each that one that is better then my Glock. Be it trigger, grip, sights..... But I can not say the Glock does any one thing better the the others. I’m talking an unmodified stock G19

I owned a G19 for a couple of years as my bedside gun because of the perceived reliability and ease of use for my wife. Upgraded the sights and really tried to like it. It turned out to be the least shot gun in my house. I just couldn't really bond with it. The stock trigger sucked and it was only average in accuracy. Never had a problem with it, but just didn't like it.

Bought a Q5 and after many thousands of rounds of reliability and trigger goodness, I realized I no longer needed the Glock. Nothing against the the big G, but the PPQ is so much more well rounded.

I have more than a few pistols including my Walther PPQ and a Gen 2 Glock 19 that is still box stock that I bought in the early 90s.

I love both pistols but my Glock 19 is the one I CCW when I want a double stack 15 round 9MM pistol which is often. For me my Glock 19 is a better size for CCW and the Glock 19 has a better trigger for CCW. I shoot my PPQ a little bit better at slower speed but shoot my Glock 19 better at faster speed. If I could have only 1 of the 2 it would be my Glock 19.

As always one should try out whatever they are considering and choose what works best for them. We are lucky these days to have so many fine pistols to choose from.

If I could shoot a Glock 19 better than a P99 or PPQ, the Walther pistols would lose most of their appeal to me, and I'd probably be posting on another forum.

I don't understand why someone would put any rounds through another polymer pistol that fills the same role, when a pistol with similar enough weight, durability, reliability, and accuracy was already available and already in my possession.

When I see a thread title such as "Glock fan Buying a walther", my first thought is, why? If you didn't shoot it better, then I'm having an extremely hard time imagining why you went out of your way to use money that could have went to ammo for your Glock, on a more expensive pistol with harder to find and more expensive parts and mags.

No, I don't feel safer with a Glock than a Walther, because I shoot the Walther better, and both have earned a reputation for being reliable, accurate, and durable. If I shot a Glock better, I'd be carrying that, and I wouldn't be wasting my time with a Walther. Ease of use and how easy it is to hit the target is a HUGE reason why I prefer the PPQ over most if not all of its competitors.

My question to the OP is, if you don't shoot it better, why do you? What is the appeal to the Walther for you? The Glock is cheaper, the mags and parts are cheaper and easier to find, there are more sights and holsters available for it, you shot it better, and you owned it already before choosing to purchase a Walther. Why on Earth wouldn't you just get rid of the Walther at this point?
