I literally bought my PPQ 45 on the strength of 2 mins smart phone research. I'd seen the PPQ classic and put it on my "when I have more disposable income" list. Then I saw a PPQ 45 for $512.00 new in a small shop in rural Montana. I asked them to keep it for me and ran to the bank. (I rarely buy a firearm with plastic, bad idea for my marriage) inside a week, my venerable Sig p220 was angrily posting on Tinder from the safe, cuz I dropped her from DC use like 3nd period French! Never thought I'd see the day. The PPQ literally makes me look like a better marksman than I actually am. I know everyone raves about the trigger and there's a reason for that:the trigger is amazing! No, it isn't as good as a nice 1911 trigger, but it's damn close. The ergonomics are spot on, seems made for my hands. I'm going to ditch my P250 compact for a PPQ sub-compact withing 6 months. (I'm one of those fee who like the P250) So if you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and buy a PPQ!
