Yeah - we have a bunch in the shop. I just want something smaller than my G19C for CC.
Why not just the G26 then? It's the same length as the PPS, it's height is less, and it's just barely wider. Depending on how Glock lists their weight (the PPS is listed without a mag) the Glock is either an ounce or two lighter or .3oz heavier. The Glock also comes with 2 10 round mags. The PPS comes with 1 7 round magazine. Add into that the fact that nobody has to ask if the Glock is a good pistol, and you see where I'm going with this.
It's .14" thicker. That's not exactly a lot, and it's height is .23" less than the PPS. I've always considered height to be more of an issue than a tiny difference in thickness when talking about CCW. Of course, that's just my opinion.
not to mention the interchangeability. you would save money on range mags and just use the 10 rounder for CC and have a 15 round as a spare mag. it just makes sense if you already have a 19
well, i'm glad i chose the glock over the walther.
it was cheaper, holds more rounds and not that much wider than the PPS
And it doesn't have a built in locking system.
In my brief searching I've seen a few reports of the slide locking back on the PPS when there are still rounds in the magazine. I don't know if this was limited to the first gen of the guns, or is still a problem.
i have a pps, the slide locking back was due to bad springs, they have seemed to have been worked out. just look for a later production the serial number will start with ac instead of ab. the are going up in price and only ship with one mag. so look out for that i found mine with two mags and a later serial number.
That may be the actual difference, but holding them together, there's a huge difference - especially inside the waist band.
I spent half the day with a PPS in an ankle hostler and the other half with it in an IWB. It is super easy to carry - much nicer than the G26 IMO.
are you overweight, cantank?
I like my PPS. I've never much cared for the double-stack subcompacts I've handles and shot for some reason, but the single-stack PPS feels more natural.
It is just stupidly thin without being a mouse gun or cheap-looking like kel-tec (which I've never fired, to be fair).
Not going to make any claims about reliability or carryability vs anything since I've not gotten off my ass to get my CHL.
Downsides are low popularity (few accessories), spendy magazines (how I miss sub-$20 Glock magazines), and low capacity (6/7/8+1 in 9mm ... don't even want to think about a .40S&W PPS after handling and firing the larger-and-heavier P99 in .40S&W).
I love it. I would trade my P250 for it based on size alone.
why would width concern you? get bigger pants
So i would have pants that didn't fit when i wasn't carrying? I don't dress around my gun - i want a gun to work for me.
You dress aroun your gun. Period..
why the fuck would you NOT be carrying?
you dress around your gun, always.
if not, what the fuck is the point?
You can't carry everywhere.
I should get all my suits 2 sizes too big to accommodate my gun.
the places i can't carry, i don't go to.
why do you carry a gun, anyway? to look cool?
it's not a big deal.
I'm sorry that i go to churches, police stations, courtrooms, etc.
you go to those everyday?
