I'm a HK die-hard, but PPQ trigger is better than VP. Also, PPQ M1 has paddle mag release.
I also prefer the ergos on the PPQ, but that's a very personal thing.
I own 20+ HK's, and carried a P7 daily for almost 2 decades, but I also have two Walthers in segments I feel they do it better
1) Striker-Fired: PPQ > VP
2) Single Stack: PPS > ???
