Before I bought my first handgun, I fired a dozen different pistols. I decided to buy a PPQ (M1). While the grip was a bit too big for me, it was that amazing trigger that hooked me hard. I instantly became a trigger snob, shunning Glocks and M&Ps alike (even with an Apex trigger mod). Since I'm ambidextrous and shoot both hands as primary, I figured the ambi mag release would be another asset. But I initially didn't really "get" the paddle mag release. Once I caught on (stopped trying to use my thumb) and used my middle finger while my index finger was still up on the frame (no grip change at all), it was like a moment of nirvana. I went from being the slowest mag swapper on the line to the fastest, after only a few nights of dry fire practice using a finger instead of a thumb. AMAZING. Now that I'm getting to a point where I want to compete, I'm looking for a longer barrel. So of course I want a PPQ w/ a 5" barrel which will be offered soon but only for the M2 lover. What about those of us that love the M1 design? Does Walther have to abandon us paddle lovers? Please, please, PLEASE offer the 5 inch PPQ with the original M1 design. I don't want to go to a Glock 34 or a M&P Pro with an Apex trigger but I'll go that direction if I can't get the M1 design because the grip is too big for me on the PPQ even with the small backstrap (which I've found doesn't matter if I'm using a paddle release). I completely understand why Walther offers the M2. No question. It was a matter of survival and it worked! But why ABANDON your loyal followers that love the M1? We don't want MORE, we just want what the new M2 customer is offered (a 5" variant that uses OUR magazines (M1) and has OUR preferred mag release (paddle)). Please please PLEASE reconsider and offer the 5 inch barrel for the M1 along with bringing back the M1 classic.
