Fair enough, Fishbed. And Walther may have something good to offer with the PPX in that price point.
My feeling is that I want to see more P99 quality guns and less P95/Sigma quality guns. They each have their place and purpose, not saying the lower price point is worthless by any means.
That's my feeling as well, but the simple fact is that the P99/PPQ is already one of the best (if not THE best) polymer pistol designs on the market today. Walther really has nowhere to go but downmarket, and there apparently is a lot of money to be made with less-expensive guns.
I'm not thrilled about this, as I feel it cheapens a great name (similar to the Umarex-manufactured guns like the P22 and PK380), but if it keeps great guns like the P99/PPQ and PPS coming, I guess I won't complain too much.
