She Went With a Walther

After renting just about every striker there is, my wife chose a Walther PPS M2. She's a lefty and that's what she's the most comfortable with. This is my wife's 1st automatic. She's a real Annie Oakly, better shot than me. She has shot revolvers all her adult life and wants to learn how to shoot an auto and apply for her CCL - in Texas it's called LTC - License To Carry. I'll order it for her this afternoon; it should get here by the end of the week.

I have a new respect for 9mm now after shooting several over the past couple of months. This will be the 1st 9mm I've ever bought.

Can't fault your choice.......I really like my Walther

Order a set of Talon grips, inexpensive, easy to put on, and I think she'll like the way the feel.

If you were here in Clovis, I could recommend Rick Queener. He's handling my divorce and knows the quality of Sig...

The PPS is a sweet shooter. I prefer the paddle mag release of the M1 but the egos on the M2 are nearly perfect.

Congrats to her- Beautiful single stack -

As a fellow lefty, she knows the mag release can't be swapped over correct? One of the things that bothered me and keeps me from getting one (along with the Shield), I either like a swappable mag release button or the paddle style like the HK's personally, 1911's are a different story -

However I'm sure if she trains with it its no issue, it is a righty's world after all

Sounds like she explored her options and made a reasonable choice. Nothing wrong with that weapon. Not MY personal choice, but the key word there is "choice" and she made a good one. I love it when people who are non shooters become shooters, AND I love it when women carry. Strong work on both.

My wife fell in love with the P380 then decided that she wanted a 9mm and decided that the P99 would fit the bill perfectly... Well we never found one for sale new or used and she ended up buying an XDs chambered in 9mm. If I ever see a used P99 in good condition, I buying it, if for no other reason than the brownie point back! I'm sure your will love it.
