The Walther PPQ has one of the best if not the best out-of-the-box triggers in any semi-automatic pistol for sale today. No need to go aftermarket; it’s clean and crisp with a sharp reset. It’s also a supremely comfortable gun, with extremely palm-pleasing ergonomics. Walther brought the PPQ to the first Texas Firearms Festival; it was a firm favorite with shooters. Walther will be bringing the PPQ back to the 2015 event – and other fine handguns for your dining and dancing pleasure. (Remember: ammo’s free with your ticket.) In fact they reckon they’ll debut . . .

a new model they can’t talk about now.

Sorry. But it does reaffirm what we discovered last year: the Texas Firearms Festival is the scene for pre-SHOT Show model debuts. Last year, the SIG MPX. This year? A new Walther and more.

You’ll be able to buy your Walther from the Sportsman’s Finest gun store tent. If you’re from Texas it’s cash-and-carry. If not, they’ll ship it home for you.

Now’s the time to book your tickets for the Texas Firearms Festival, November 14 and 15 at Best of the West Shooting Sports in Liberty Hill, Texas (outside of Austin). To keep line length/wait times down, tickets are strictly limited to 250 VIP and 1500 general admission tickets per day. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Click here to come and shoot it, y’all.

  1. I’m thinking and hoping that the new model they can’t talk about yet is a true mini-9 or mini-380. Their current CCP and PK380 are too big for those britches. They need to out-G42/43 the G42/43.

  2. Hmmm…I think I liked the original ppq with the mag release lever instead of the button…I know i probably complained about it before but, the lever is a bit more…unique.

  3. I just picked up a PPQ 22 LR with a threaded barrel and it is a sweet gun.
    It fits my hand like a tailored suit.
    It mates up perfectly with the Silencerco Spectre II which by sheer coincidence fits perfectly in the foam slot of the hard case that come with the gun.
    It isn’t a small gun for a 22 but that’s fine with me.

  4. And very lefty friendly!

    PPQ M1 is my favorite. In keeping with the paddle style release I went and shot a PPS in 9mm. Apparently no-one had shot it previously, I would imagine due to the popularity of the shield. In any case, I was hoping for a fairly PPQ like experience, and while it felt and shot very nicely, the damn thing bit my trigger finger hard, after about 2 mags worth of rounds my finger had a distinguishable red mark on it. I can only speculate that the trigger safety didn’t quite sit flush and when the slide went forward the trigger pushed into my finger with all the weight on that little sliver that is the trigger safety. I haven’t shot another yet to see if it was just an odd manufacturing defect, though I found plenty of people who experienced the same issue. I’m kind of hoping for a PPQ-C in the tradition of P99C, would love to have the slightly shorter grip and maintain some capacity of the double-stack.

    • Its funny, I had the opposite experience with the PPS. I shot the PPS on a whim at TIFF last year and it surprised me so much I went back and shot it three more times.

    • I have a new LC9, and it does not have the dingus in the trigger, but tended to pinch the tip of my trigger finger very like you describe, when I was firing from a rest, not otherwise. Like you, I examined the trigger area, could not figure anything to explain that.
