    We pretty much flew through the Walther booth. We took some photos, but that was it.

    I still think Lew Horton makes some of the prettiest Walthers, though:

    Now THOSE are some space guns. Wow. I bet they're a dream to shoot competition with though.

    Video of the special PPQ decocking function:
    http://www.tanfo.de/wa/MVI_1984.AVI

    Basically you pull the slide back a little bit and release to decock the firearm. Not a function I would want though.
    I have been told by someone else that it is double action when you decock it. Not sure how true that is.

    That's probably true. That's how the P99 AS works, but with a button instead of the slide manipulation.

    Derek, the photo with the PPS has a laser on it? Is that from Walther, or a 3rd party part?

    Blowing up the photo shows the name "LASERMAX" on the laser. Does that help?

    It's a LaserMax. http://www.lasermax.com/ There's another picture of it on a PPS on the LaserMax web site. Might be nice, but if it required a new holster (which I assume it would), that would be painful.
