Hi everyone, I just joined recently to learn more about the PPQ M1. Wife and I both jumped through all of Maryland's anti personal protection hoops,so now we're just waiting for our HQL "License" to arrive. Me being a lefty has prompted me to consider the M1 over the M2. Wife has tiny features and has trouble racking slides (even Smith Wesson's EZ), so she'll be looking at revolvers.We're both beat-up from working for paychecks for 50 years, so "ease of operation" is important to us. I should be ready to buy in December but 'finding' an M1 will be the challenge, let alone a 5 inch model that I'm after!
