It's called "Programming". Read Edward Bernais's book and your perspective of all media changes. Reading thru some of the recent posts 2 main points have really shined bright. 1, the programming works and 2, people don't read or if they do it's not to comprehension of the subject matter. Glad to help.
So, who is carrying Walther strikers out there? Not a big striker fan so a PPS or PPQ was not on my radar. Recently been playing with a PPS M2 and have to say it's a shooter. It has raised my interest in a PPQ. Have others found these to be exceptional "strikers" in build, ergonomics and accuracy?
Man they are good to go, good trigger, more capable than most of its users. Quality manufacturer with a track record. Do I feel there are better choices, yes i do. If it's what you feel it is best for you then pull the trigger. Get a factory optics ready slide if you can. Have a great day. Edit: If you choose the subcompact model it is susceptible to "limp wrist" malfunctions from improper grip like pretty much all sc models handled by people with limited skills and training. I would also like to add that the CZ P10 series should be looked at by anyone in the "striker fired" market.
Main gripes about the sig I hear are: high bore axis and poor performance in elements testing.
Semi autos are kind of foreign to me as I like classic guns, got 2 double action 44 revolvers I really like and I spend some time using my dad's 1911.
Have shot a few other SA striker fired guns that were decent, a Glock 20, a cz 9mm to name a few. But I'm definitely in the market for something modern like this and also a range plinker that's fairly easy to handle and fun to shoot such as a kel-tec plr-16 or plr-22. Although I don't really care much for the exposed screws on their frames. But 26 rounds of 22lr sounds real fun
Guy says the "gun just discharged", Sig says "no mechanical failure". Someone isn't taking responsibility, either negligent or faulty, who knows. Sig has a long track record, people avoiding responsibility has a long track record. As for "drop safe", unless you test yourself, you are putting faith in someone else so the point is moot. Most would be surprised how many past and present firearms are not "drop safe" nor designed to be. If you are looking for a striker fired option I would suggest the Walther's and the CZ P10 series with ORS (my personal choice). Good luck man and have a great day.
