My first post....so if this is old news....forgive me!!!

I just received an email from TruGlo saying:

"We are now shipping our latest design for the Walther P99 and PPQ series pistols to dealers and distributors.

TG13WA1A TFX Walther P99 and PPQ
TG13WA1PC TFX PRO Walther P99 and PPQ"

I am buying my PPQ this week! Really excited!

I've been running these for about a year or more and love them!

You are going to love your Q and love it more with the TFX or Pros mounted.

Thanks so much!

We thought Dawson was about our best option for after market sights...but will now go for the TruGlo green/orange combo!

Hubby was 24 years Army....I'm a newbie!

He is excited about the PPQ (I picked it out)! That means I get to shoot it! LOL!

It has been my experience that when "wifey" gets to shoot a PPQ "hubby" loses all rights to the weapon. :D

As you state you are a new shooter, even though your husband will likely show you the ropes, I'd like to suggest that you invest in some lessons from a qualified instructor. You'll learn how to safely manipulate "your" Q and how to operate it in a manner that is fun and efficient. The $50-$75 spent on a one to two hour class will more then pay for itself.

Many serious shooters budget private instruction and group training into their annual firearms budget. It is a fun way to improve skills and we all can benefit from a set of "outside" eyes watching our technique.

BTW Dawson are a good sight but the TFX seem (to me anyway) to operate well under wider lighting situations....the Pros have the edge over the TFX especially because of the U shaped sight notch and the aggressive slope on the front of that rear sight which helps with belt racking (a technique you'll learn in class).

Keep us posted on your experiences with your Q and remember there are plenty of very knowledgeable folks here who are more then willing to share their expertise with you. Feel free to ask....no one bites here.

I totally agree about training. I have had quite a bit of training...and plan on more....especially if I decide to carry.

I am doing well at the range and enjoying it. Right now I am in the process of demo'ing different 9mm for a tartet/range gun.....NOT carry.

The 2 main contenders right now are a PPQ or an XD M OSP! I really like the Springfield 1911, but wish it had more mag capacity....

BTW - thanks for the links. I have not yet had time to check all the info available on this forum!

PPQ blows the XDm out of the water in every possible way IMHO. For range or defense the PPQ rules the world of polymer pistols. Along with the P99 of course...
