Are you right handed or left handed?


What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

The ergonomic grip

Tell us about shooting this gun:

Smooth, smooth, smooth. Shooting this gun is an absolute delight.  She shoots straight and is reliable. Not the recoil sometimes felt with the smaller guns.

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

Besides the bomb-ass grip, I chose this gun because the ease of the slide. The gun feels like butter, not kidding! I would swear that when they made this grip, it was off a mold of my own hand. The thumb magazine release is in the most incredibly perfect place. The three dot sights are phosphorus and quick to get back on target.  I can find my gun in my dark closet by the sights that are still aglow after carrying concealed all day.  (the sun must be getting to them somehow under my blouse?) After hitting them with my flashlight, they actually make the room glow and stay lit for hours in the dark.  There is no thumb safety thus, trigger pull is a bit heavy at 6.1 lbs, but not an issue for me. There aren’t a lot of doodads and doohickeys on this gun. Because I use it to carry, I don’t want to have to think about too much, ( i.e. the safety), if I need to stop a threat.  But that is a very personal decision.

How reliable is it?

I have been putting 100 rounds through it several times a month and not one misfire.  She says whilst knocking on forehead.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

I use 115 gr. Reload FMJ’s.

Does this gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:

None that I know of.

What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?

The slide stop is a reach for me and took some practice.  It’s still not easy. My girlfriend has the prettiest, daintiest small hands and it pinches her where the magazine meets the grip. (Not a problem for my man hands)

Was it easy to take down and clean?

To say I knew nothing about firearms before I started this journey is an understatement. I was one of those ladies who went to the range with her hubby once a year purely out of obligation. He would load it, rack it, hand it to me, tell me to point it down range and pull the trigger. After obediently executing his orders, I would promptly return said firearm and take the breath I didn’t know I was holding.  So, imagine my apprehension when I was told I had to actually take it APART to clean it.  THIS GUN ONLY HAS FOUR PARTS! Easy, peasy.  Did I say it was easy to take down and clean?

Would you recommend this gun?


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

Absolutely shoot every gun you can get your hands on.  Hit the range (with the girls) no well meaning husbands allowed. Shoot your BFF’s guns, rent them. Shoot, shoot, shoot. THEN try this Walther…you will never go back!

Anything else you would like to share about this gun?

I put a lot of rounds through, must be every gun of this size and caliber to see what I liked and what I didn’t. Some guns were obviously made for a man’s hands, this gun fits like a glove. I am 5’6″, 120 lbs., I carry concealed, kidney and I don’t print.  It’s  a good weight as well. I hike with it in a pair of the compression shorts with built in holster and it doesn’t bounce around. Try it, I think you will love it! Also, my husband loves to shoot this gun as well.

    So I have about the same build as you, and I have not found a good way to really conceal my gun other than wearing longer, baggier shirts. Do you have any suggestions?

    I recently purchased a Walter PPS M2 (non-LE). The first CC gun I picked out for myself (the other 3 were gifts from hubby). It had everything that the other 9mm didn’t. My first was far to light and killed my wrists. The second had a horrible trigger. The pull was so hard that I couldn’t get consistent with it. 3rd 9mm had a grip that was too wide and short. I couldn’t get a comfortable grip. This Walthers is a perfect weight, has a nice trigger and the grip is fan-freaking-tastic! The day we brought it home I put 100 rounds through it like a dream. It is so nice to finally have a CC gun I’m comfortable carrying. I’d purchase this gun again, no problem!

    I have a Walther PPS M2 and I love it! I’ve tried different semi-automatics like the Glock 43, a Ruger .380 LCP2, a Bersa 380, a M&P Sheild 9mm and various revolvers. They all hurt my hand. I was cursing with the Bersa. I don’t know what I said, but it was bad. Sometimes I got an immediate bruise or a cut from the guns (not a slide injury). I have also tried a Springfield (can’t remember model), and it was OK. I do have to say that I have hurt my right pinky getting it pinched when putting in a magazine with the PPS M2, so I hold my pinky out to avoid that. that’s been my only problem in the past. The Walther PPS M2 is smooth! Easy to shoot. Great accuracy. I don’t even notice recoil really. It’s got some more weight than other guns in its class which I think is a good thing. Feels good in the hand. It’s attractive. I’m thrilled mine came with 6, 7 and 8 round magazines. Night sites are nice to have, too. It is easy to take apart and clean. Great price for a steller gun. I just love this gun. I would like a second gun, but I can’t imagine anything being as fine as the Walther PPS M2 LE!
