    Couldn’t agree more. It’s my daily carry. 8+1, and 2- 7 round mags in a pouch.

    What do you find as the best IWB holster for this? ..I had a nice leather one I liked that fit it pretty well. But didnt work out, the flex the holster had wld always compress the Mag release & eject magazines, while holstered, certain ways I wld move around. No bueno

    I LOOOVE THE FINGER GROOVES ITS WHAT MADE ME BUY THIS PISTOL



  4. Leroy Worsley on August 25, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    I still Love it!



  5. Michael Sobrado on August 25, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Did you find the slide release to be very tight when you first acquired this pistol? If so, did it loosen up after a few hundred rounds? Thanks for a great video. I purchased one of these for my wife based in part on your recommendation. Keep them coming.

    Good knowledgeable review

    If you are looking into buying this gun do yourself a favor and dont. Every conceivable problem a firearm can have I have had happen with this gun other than completely locking up. Within my first two magazines my pistol, stovepiped, failed to fire, failed to battery at end of magazine , failed to feed and the magazine failed to lock in and fell out. Also accuracy sucks. After cleaning and firing several times these same problems continue. Experimenting with different ammo has helped yet some of the same problems continue. For some reason it seems to do better with Remington target or hornady defense so i keep those but I really should get rid of this thing. I typically carry my revolver because I cant rely on this temperamental piece of shit. Ive seen a ton of negative reviews saying similar things and I dont see any on here which is strange. Alot of people were saying many of the problems are being caused by the magazines themselves. any thoughts or similar experiences?

    After I bought this, sold my Shield and LC9. The Walther is superior in my opinion



  9. TJ3much Winninn on August 25, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Does it have safety



  10. Derek on August 25, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Figures this one wouldnt be left-handed friendly. Seems about perfect for what I’m looking for. Guess the Shield 2.0 is gonna default.



  11. Lot 21 on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Just bought one this weekend.



  12. Mark Norwood on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    And for seniors/ people with failing grip strength, I’ve noticed that every Walther I’ve had are noticeably easier to rack the slide as well.



  13. sejrec56 on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I just bought this for $350.00 used but looks new



  14. R. W on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    4:06 S&W M&P9 at no 3 while the PPS M2 at 10 So no reason to pick PPS M2 if based on their study. Am I not understanding this?



  15. Asa Thomas on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    It’s time for a 10+1 PPS M3! If the folks at Walther could figure out how to make it compatible with the old magazines, that would be amazing too.



  16. Chase Tuttle on August 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    want this gun so bad



  17. Kevin Block on August 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Love the PPS M2



  18. jett on August 25, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Dude you don’t clean your guns after everytime you shoot?



  19. FireheartSamurai on August 25, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Sounds the PPS M1 & M2 are both good, underrated pistols for CCW.



  20. Walter Ritchey on August 25, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Anyone else prefer the paddle shifter? Seems much more intuitive to me personally.



  21. Liangjian X on August 25, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I don’t know why in my many handguns, pps is the only one I like to carry it every day



  22. brad slinkman on August 25, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you!!



  23. random269 on August 25, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    This is how you do a good video without annoying music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gdKW6nXquE



  24. Grant Buchanan on August 25, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Why would you do 25 yards accuracy test on a gun this size– doesn’t make sense i.e. Useless and dumb!!!



  25. EDMAN23able on August 25, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Sad that the magazine release cannot be switched for left handed shooters. Other than that, great gun



  26. SDW on August 25, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    I cant decide between this or the Glock 48 for edc. Opinions appreciated.



  27. Ryan Jobb on August 25, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Boo, xl blows all these out of the water. Just get a ppq it’s easy to carry



  28. Fuwozkvx Tsiwjzgxx on August 25, 2022 at 8:35 pm

  29. jlcruz2402 on August 25, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    What do you think of the Walther CCP M2 9mm?



  30. Trooper Rogue on August 25, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Own all three. I love the finger grooves



  31. baller on August 25, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    They should have made it 6, 7, and 9 mags



  32. Richard Rice on August 25, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Good videos! xds mod2 has 7-8&9 round mags.



  33. Redskins 11 on August 25, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Glock 43 sucks!



  34. Rogue Trooper on August 25, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    IT IS NOT +P. That is a big negative. Grip is just a bit to thin for me. I do not to like it for that other reason. Walther tests it with 115 grain. The 6 round mag NEEDS TO GO. LE should of had 2 7 round mag and 1 8 round mag. Thanks for another great video. By The Way, I LIKE THE FINGER GROOVES. Peace Out.



  35. Paco Rodriguez on August 25, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    I have and have bought every pistol you can imagine. I rotate three pistols depending on where I am going and what I am doing. WPPSM2, Jericho 941 and Masada 9mm. My choice of carry is the WPPSM2. It is lite, accurate and I carry 2 extra extended mags. The WPPSM2 is truly my favorite carry gun.



  36. GoombaGenocide on August 25, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Walther’s trying to be like all the cool new kids and put front serrations on their pistols, But they’re still putting that goddamn ribbon logo right there so it defeats the whole purpose. The point where your thumb would be gripping is smooth from the logo



  37. Jason Meeks on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    If an EDC won’t fire anything I put through it, I won’t carry it.



  38. MILANI VLOG TV on August 25, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    why you don’t have over a million subs is beyond me. The quality of your videos and reviews is A++ hopefully one day you will get the recognition you deserve.



  39. MP WMU on August 25, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Bought a ton of ammo from you folks. Great prices and service. Shield solves all problems.



  40. J Chis on August 25, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    First time buyer and I’m going with the PPS M2.



  41. dpb on August 25, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Still prefer the pps classic though



  42. jim smith on August 25, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    I can’t decide on this or the Glock 43 for an edc gun.



  43. Poldus Eri on August 25, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    100% agree! So far, my best CCW, even better than the Glock 43X



  44. Sean Wilson on August 25, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Just traded off my Ruger security 9 compact for the Walther pps 2 LE. I love this gun! It feels a lot better to carry than the Ruger. Less rounds but man….this gun shoots sooooo much smoother. Love this as my edc.



  45. David Spin on August 25, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    I shot my friends today, very accurate and easy to shoot.



  46. Martin Mach on August 25, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    I bought a gun last year. and I am extremely satisfied. it’s the best edc in the world



  47. Jimm Murray on August 25, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    great detailed review. enjoy the straight forward honesty.



  48. RAVENFAN518 on August 25, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    own it , love it



  49. Charles Luck on August 25, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    The review was great! I held this gun in my hand, feels terrific. Guess what. You do what you want, I am not buying a gun from Nazi collaborators.
    After Carl Walther died, leaving the company to Fritz; the beginning of the Nazi’s reign marked a new era for Walther Arms. The budding alliance between Fritz’s reputable enterprise and the Nazi Government began in 1938 when the Reich commissioned them to produce P38s as the Wehrmacht’s new standard-issue sidearm. Additionally, the Fuhrer himself ordered Walther to supply PPs and PPKs to the Luftwaffe pilots, and assorted Nazi Party officials.
    As World War II raged on and the demand for military guns was skyrocketing, the company had to look elsewhere to meet the Nazi’s quotas. In order to meet these demands, Walther Arms decided it would be a good idea to utilize slave labor at the Neuengamme concentration camp.
    This part of their detailed history has been conveniently left off the Walther website!
    BTW, I have the same allergic reaction to the thought of buying a car from companies who have a history of enabling the Nazi regime.

    Like I said, you do what you want, but I have standards. I’m not going to uphold my 2nd Amendment rights with a German gun.
