Chrstn Ghl’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump hails from Bundesrepublik Deutschland. She’s a police officer, obviously. (You didn’t really expect an average German to be able to carry a handgun, did you?) As this is Ms. Ghl’s work EDC, no doubt her Walther P99 is department-issued. Here in the Land of the Free . . .
Americans who don’t live in states with a roster of state-approved handguns (e.g., California and Massachusetts) or states that won’t let you carry a handgun in public period (e.g., New Jersey and Hawaii) can choose from a wide variety of personal defense firearms, including Walther’s triggertastic polymer pistols. And yet most of them choose a GLOCK.
Ain’t nothin’ wrong with a GLOCK. Except the stock trigger. And the grip angle. And the aesthetics (or lack thereof). All of which can be sorted or avoided PDQ by buying Walther’s PPQ.
I almost forgot to mention: Walthers are just as reliable as Gaston’s gats. So why not a Walther?
