    Without a doubt, THE most accurate straight out of the box pistol I've ever had (+35). Phenomenally short trigger and reset, very good ergonomics and very good feel. Not quite the feel of my Rami or Mod 2 9mm, but very close. If you ever get the chance to check one out, do it. It might cost ya, though.

    A PPQ is on my short list next time I buy a full-sized piece. Hopefully the first third of '17.

    Glad you like yours...a lit of people agree.

    It's the only 45 i have ever owned, it makes me look good. I also have a PPS m2 9mm. It's my preferred EDC.

    I know what you mean. The first 20 rds I fired created a baseball sized hole, at 25 ft. I was laughing out loud. One on top of the other. Folks were probably wondering if I was off my rocker and needed to be watched. My PCR never did that, nor did the Rami. The only gun that came close was my brother's 4" XD9 a few years ago.

    Had one, did not like it, sold it. To each their own. Give me a Glock 21 any day over the PPQ 45.

    I am also considering buying either a PPQ-M2 or an XD Tactical to replace my 40 year old Smith&Wesson model 59 which is now semi-retired.
    I have a compact Mod-2.
    The new one will be for nightstand and range only.
    Decisions, decisions!!!!!!

    I tried the PPQ 45 last year a LGS factory shoot. I was blown away by it. Targets they had setup were only 15 feet away but I put 9 of 10 shots through the same about 1 inch hole and for me it was a very soft shooter. I already have a 9MM PPQ that I love and would have bought the PPQ 45 except for I don't shoot .45 much these days and already have a German P220, HK45, and 1911. Still maybe someday as the PPQ 45 was a very impressive shooter and has 12 round capacity. Going to keep and eye out for good deal on .45 brass cased range ammo.
