    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.
