The beauty: PPK/S in .22lr. Not much to say there, except that it's back. :cool:

The beast: PPX. Hammer fired weirdness. Walther nicks HiPoint? :evil:

LOL. I collect Walthers...they put the brakes on that when they discovered plastic. Now I just buy duplicates of the ones that were.

It's all steel.

Like the PPK/s in .22; not really sure what's going on with the PPX.

Kind of looks like a Hi-Point and a cordless drill got together one night on a blind date in Germany and this is the end result.

The PPQ was a thing of beauty, and a joy to shoot.

Couldn't have said it better! :)


But if it shoots as nicely as a PPQ, I could probably get over the looks if I didn't already have a PPQ.

Every once in a while, somebody on here says something that deserves being cut and pasted into my "Funniest Quotes" document. That right there is one of them.

I'm with everyone else on this one - well said Bannockburn!

The aesthetics of the PPX quite frankly offend me, but if it's a shooter... Well, I guess I'm not that easily offended after all!

Dropping the PPQ is a real loss - hoping to find one gently used someday.

The PPQ isn't dead. It's just Americanized.

"The PPQ isn't dead. It's just Americanized."

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I, personally, like paddle mag catches!

Another classic case of ignoring the "if it ain't broke" philosophy.

Dryft,

I'm with you. I prefer the paddle. Glad I got the original PPQ.
