I'm new to the board and hooked up with this site because there's a general lack of Walther groups here on the net. While I have a P1 and a P38 my two P5s are my favorite Walther pieces and close to being my favorite pistols hands down. I had one of the P5s at the range today and no matter how much I shoot these pistols they never cease to amaze me. For a 3.5" barrel the P5 has to be one of the most accurate and reliable semi-autos you can own. The nice thing is they are still quite reasonable. I've had a friend tell me that the P5 is too heavy to use as a carry piece, yet the same guy carries a 1911 for his CCW. Go figure. While I really like the decocker I do wish the P5 had an external safety for cocked and locked. The single action trigger is one of the best out of the box I've used. In fact I think my HK P7M8 is the only pistol I own that can beat it for SA trigger quality. While the DA is a bit heavy and long it is at least smooth. Not much else to say. I just wanted to pitch in my 2 cents worth on a truely well crafted and great shooting gun. If you don't already own one you really should consider it. I'm thinking about getting a third, maybe the compact this time around. It's either that, or a PP in .32. I do enjoy shooting the little .32s. It's just that the P5c is calling out for me to buy it. We'll see.
