I have a Walther PPX 40 S&W that I’ve had for 2 years. I’ve shot at least 1200 rounds and it dosen’t miss a beat. I’m very comfortable with this gun, but was looking to get something new. Is Glock worth the money or should I stick with walther firearms?
We own a Walter P22 that doesn’t get shot much. My wife (it’s her gun) isn’t as much of a shooter as we both thought, and reassembling that gun is a real exercise in losing the recoil spring. I own three Glocks (17, 43, 43X).
That having been said, get whatever you are comfortable with…or whatever strikes your fancy. I don’t see myself moving away from Glocks (after a Beretta, a Stoeger, and a Keltec) because I like them and shoot them well.
Then again, I might just pick up a shiny revolver one of these days. Ya never know.
Oh this is not subjective,!
Well Glock people will tell you Glock and Walther people will tell you Walther.
What ever works for you, what are you most comfortable with? What fits you better? Why does it have to be a Glock, or a Walther?
Oh, and with all the panic purchasing, I wish you luck finding what you are looking for. Be prepared to pay, did the gunshop tour yesterday and today, you can expect to pay MSRP at the least and have noticed 50-60$ bumps above that.
Good luck in your endeavor!
That crazy gun bug keeps biting and it makes you want to take another step into another gun. Just as I have bought myself an AR Ruger 556 I was thinking an AR 45 would nice to have, and I had not even shot the 556 yet! I have my reasons for each one of those but, practicality should be pondered upon,… what size, another 40? or a different size? How much are the rounds? and how available is the ammo? That is a big one right now because ammo is hard to find right now.
I was looking for a 9mm this time. I like walther because they are some well built firearms and very reliable. I’ve heard Glock 19 was one of the best 9mm to have. Ive never shot a glock.
Have you ever shot the Glock 19 sir?
if you are happy with your gun then don’t ask other people what they think. I have a 92FS and some people bash it. You can only judge whats good for you.
You are right. Thank you
As a Glock lover… (everybody knows I love Glocks, I own all the models) … UPS… stop, stop, stop…
As the most important rule says: shoot what you are comfortable with…. I’d suggest to stay with Walther. You’ve already known how Walther fits your hand and shoots… no reason to change it.
Rent and test Glock… it’s good to know if you can shoot it. Only this way you find out which one is better.
Thank you. I’ve heard the Glock 19 was worth the money. Is that true?
@Chadwick1… I cannot answer the question… I would be banned
If I would find PPQ and G19 within the same price range… I go with PPQ.
But I strongly encourage to rent and test G19 to find YOUR option.
Thank you sir
Let us know if you shoot Glock - what are your thoughts.
I’m curious what Walther owner thinks about Glock.
Perhaps you find it better …
They are quite different. I suggesting renting the ones you’re interested in and shooting them. Having tried Glocks, I can’t imagine ever owning one. If I inherited or won one in a raffle, I’d sell it unfired. I’ve loved every Walther I’ve shot (PPS, PPQ M1/M2, PPK/S and then some).
I’m a fan of Glock. They come out of the box and go bang every single time I pull the trigger.
Reliable, cost friendly, easiest guns I own to clean.
I dislike Glocks, but love Walthers. Recently got a PPQ Navy. Love it.
If you are used to Walthers, you probably love the ergonomics. Ergonomics that seem to be entirely missing in Glocks. I suspect as a Walther veteran, you won’t care much for a Glock, but see if there’s a range that will let you use both and see.
I’ve said This to tons of people over my lifetime. Walther is probably the MOST underrated gun manufacturer selling in the USA right now. Their quality is as good as Glock and actually just as good as other premium European manufacturers selling for a LOT more money. I’ll catch a lot of flack for this but they are as good as any H&K I’ve owned or fired, and I LOVE H&Ks!
I think Walther relationship with S&W in the USA hurt them because they became a second product line to someone with no incentive to bring them up in the market to where they need to be. But in my experience they are a fantastic guns that are flawlessly reliable, more accurate than they should be (Walther makes Olympic level accurate guns and barrels) and folks need to buy more of them before the company realizes they are giving their guns away and raise prices to where they really should be.
No need to justify buying a new pistol here. Find a good one for a good price, add it to the family. Win!
if I find a good PPQ for the money I may add it to my collection.
Sorry Guys and Gals,
I only know one thing about Walther firearms and that knowledge comes from my abortive ownership of a Walther CCP “easy rack, light recoil” 9mm semi auto. It had the worst trigger I have ever encountered in 60 years of owning firearms. It had a gritty, creepy pull with a mushy, inconsistent break. Just terrible. As a 6 year old kid I had toy cap pistols that had better triggers. I must assume that other Walther firearms might have similar triggers and I would never ever have one in my house. Not even if it was free. My vote would be for Glock.
Unfortunately wrong thinking.
I don’t have anything against Glock, but if you’d chosen PPK or PPQ line you would be positively surprised how great and smooth the trigger could be.
CCP is a different pistol - blowback, not recoil; so the feel cannot be compared to Glock…
