to stay connected to this great forum. Those who don't know...I sold my HKs...and without 1 HK to my name - I feel I need one to stay in this HK community. I've learned so much here in my short time - not just about HKs...but everything that revolves around gun ownership (marksmanship, gun safety, gun rights, etc.) This is definitely a class forum...so I need an HK!

I recently picked up a new PPQ in 9mm...which are hard to come by in the central Atlanta area. I feel like I need a complimentary "bombroof" full size 9 - that I can walk the plains with in a post apocalyptic world. I'm thinking USP 9 - with jet funnel! :41:

Enjoy the pic!

Gotta get back in the Hk game my friend...and a USP 9 w/JF is a good way to get your feet wet again.

BTW, I love my PPQ...she's quietly becoming my favorite german mistress. Sssshhhhh...........I just stripped her down and lubed her 10 mins ago.

The PPQ is a fantastic weapon. I'll probably pick up another one down the line. Just flipped mine to fund another HK and 10 P30 mags lol.

Thanks for the PPQ porn. USP 9mm with Jet Funnel = fun Fun FUN... so go get one as soon as you comfortably can. Hey Fifth, you're a super cool dude so HK or not you can always come back and share your experiences with those two awesome HK45's you had.

Great pickup on the PPQ, the size is very similar to a P30 and that's the only turn off for me, I needed a CCW for all seasons and It's just easier to conceal my USPc. But the PPQ is a winner.

I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point this forum became as much of my everyday activities as brushing my teeth, or driving to work. I almost shudder at the thought of not partaking in this anymore. Yes you should definitely get that USP9 and come back to the fold. Call it a bad analogy if you will but I too like to go out and test the waters with other gun brands. Glocks,Caracals,1911's,etc. But I always feel like the HK's are home and always love coming back to them. p.s. I can't stand that smith and Wesson writing all over the side of the PPQ. It's what's kept me from getting one. A great quality german gun, with that plastered all over the side of it. A shame.

I'm a little confused by the post.
I did concider a PPQ myself, but bombproof?
The real bombproof HK version of the PPQ, The P30, is so close physically you almost can't tell them apart?
So why didn't you just get the real thing?

One word. Trigger... Handle and shoot/dry fire a PPQ. It's a 500$ gun with a 900$ trigger on it, you can't beat that.

I wish it was black and white...but there's a whole lotta grey that led me to the decision to go to the PPQ. On the face though, price was a factor - and I get a whole lotta gun for +$500.
When I get the opportunity - I will get back into HK - and you're right, the P30 is a sweet platform and will be at the top of my list. As you pointed out - it may be the perfect HK compliment to the PPQ - without being another PPQ.

FYI: In whole Europe one magazine for P30 cost 65 Euro - that's like 80+ dolar for one P30 15 rounds magazine.
PPQ will be the same price for sure. And it's impossible to buy a P30 magazine in USA, because no one will sent it to you. They have some restrictions, even it is not main part of the gun.
And that's really bad, because I am planning to buy one PPQ for my girlfriend very soon, after she will get gun licence next month.
Because striker fired "P30" with easy trigger and perfect ergonomics is the best option for a girl I think.
And one extra bonus - PPQ cost in Czech Republic little over one thousand dollar. And I am not kidding :-(.
Fortunatelly for now, main Walther importer have 37 % discount for members of armed forces - police and professional soldier and I know two soldiers,
so one of them will buy me a PPQ for something about 700 USD. So 50 dollar magazine and 500 dollar gun is very good and you can consider yourself lucky :).

FWIW, the only thing keeping me from adding a P30 to my collection...is the PPQ. Aside from the appeal and durability of the P30, I'm not sure it offers much more than a PPQ without spending more money on a trigger job. I've got other Hk 9mm to fit that bill anyway. My PPQ has been flawless and I know there are others on here that have ran the p**s out of theirs without a hiccup.

What makes you think the PPQ is less durable than the P30? Curious.

You would not believe the minimal wear showing on my primary PPQ. It is a lot less wear than some of my HK's with similar round counts.

..and $900 dollar magazines.
They also use p99 mags. I never used them since I didn't keep mine long enough to.


While I loved the trigger, I also hated it. I prefer Da/Sa and if I kept the ppq it would have just been a range gun and not carried. The aggressive serrations on the ppq are far better than the p30 but the stippling sucks. They feel more like an m&p. I honestly do miss the gun but it made room for a USPc. If a user wants a striker pistol, I think the PPQ is a very good choice. I know there is a lot of snobs that think Glocks are terrible guns but they work and I think if the ppq was sold in the same amounts it would prove itself as just as good or better.(by opinion)

This is actually only an assumption based on Hk's track record for durability and the PPQ only being on the market for a couple of years. I've actually read some of your posts in the past detailing your round counts pertaining to the PPQ and have been impressed...one of the reasons I didn't hesitate purchasing a PPQ. I have no real life experience or documentation for comparison, but I will agree, my PPQ has been flawless and put more rounds through it than any of my other Hk's, though my round count pales in comparison to yours.

Nuttin' wrong with the Magnum Research FA magazines that work perfect in the Q for $28 a pop.

The Q is simply an evolved Walther P99 which has been around for some time and very proven. No "new design" worries. Bill

Wolvee, I can confirm, the P99 mags work fine in the PPQ. Haven't tried the Magnum Research magazines, yet. I'm still waiting on my commission check from Carl Walther, I've probably sold more PPQ's than Smith and Wesson's marketing and sales department.

Like Wolvee I prefer DA/SA classic trigger. And personally for me, P30LS is the most beautifull pistol on the market. PPQ is nice also, but not as mutch as P30, but this is according to everyones taste of course.
But as I wrote previously, for the girl is striker fired (without hammer, deckoking lever, safety lever etc.) PPQ best option. If HK makes mentioned striker fired P40, I will buy this one for my girl.

And the most important think - everything today is made for quantum, not for the quality (computer stuff, cars, chairs etc just about everything what I can think about). Pistol from HK is one of the last things, with true high quality.
So the price tag is irelevant in this area, because if you want no compromise quality gun, you must pay for it. You can buy cheaper and very good pistols (I mean normal, not some race specials), but if you want the best quality production,
you will buy HK no matter what it cost.
