The Walther PPS M2 is a single stack 9mm concealed carry pistol that is easy to conceal, dependable, and accurate.

In fact, the grip on the PPS M2 lends itself to accurate shooting because it locks the pistol in your hand in a way that leaves the gun pointing toward the target when you raise it to fire. In other words, if your hands are pointing toward the target, the PPS M2 will be closely aligned just because of the way the gun is made.

Breitbart News reported on our first impressions of shooting the PPS M2 on February 7, 2018, and the grip was a highlight from day one:

From February to July, we have carried the PPS M2 concealed, shot it in many different conditions — with a variety of ammunition types — and the gun has proven itself again and again.

The PPS M2 weighs just over 21 ounces, and that lightweight means all-day carry is no problem, especially when the gun is paired with a compact holster like the Clinger Holsters’ Stingray model. The Stingray is a Kydex holster that is placed inside the waistband on your dominant side, right where your side and your back meet. The Stingray is sweat proof, offers a secure hold, and is designed to make all-day carry a breeze.

We drew the PPS M2 from a Stingray holster repeatedly:

The PPS M2 holds eight rounds of 9mm (seven in the magazine and one in the chamber). It has no external safety, rather, a safety is incorporated into the trigger. This means the gun is immediately ready for action if carried with a round chambered and a concealed carrier finds himself under duress.

The MSRP for a PPS M2 is $469.
