Oh man, all the stories are true, she is a sweet shooter.

Might have to change my name to Walther_Flo.

Now to try and find some mags...

I don't get why I didn't see what all the fuss was about.

Could I just be a freak of nature or something? To just give it away.

^ lol

It was to one of my best friends, that was always there for me when I needed him when I was going through some issues. He needed his first gun, didn't know where to start. I helped him out since he's left handed anyways, he couldn't be happier.

Well I am no pistol expert, but the size/weight balance, the grip, the ambi features are all perfect to me. The trigger feels great. What is not to love?

Out of the box today I shot it better than my HK USP .40 that I have thousands of rounds through.

My only gripe is the push button release, but I have to admit having swapped it to left handed it feels pretty good. I can see why righties like it. I still would prefer the true ambi trigger guard release because I am used to that on my HK and my wife is right handed and she may (hopefully never) have to use the gun.

My USP feels like a panzer tank. This feels like a BMW 3 series. I like both for different reasons.

Hopefully, Walther will bring back the original mag release of the PPQ/P99. The button release of the PPQM2 is definitely a step backwards.
