    I broke down and bought a brand new pistol. And a 9mm at that. Brought home a Walther PPS new in the box from work along with 200 rounds of Browning brand 115 gn FMJ. First new one since my Ruger P94 years ago. Trying to find a good IWB holster for it now. Selection is kind of limited cause I need a LH one. Going to give it a run tomorrow.

    Is this the PPSM2? If so I had two not at the same time but I really liked the gun and it worked just fine. Can't help with the lefty thing but I'm sure they're out there. I have a leather Bianci # 57 that I use, they may have it in left handed. I gave my son in NY my last one.I paid $300. for it at Academy.

    Good luck with finding a good LH holster at a reasonable price. I am one of the 7% of Southpaws who inhabit this Country. 7% isn't enough to make LH holsters or guns. In my nearly 80 yrs, I have yet to own a left-handed shotgun or rifle. They never seem to be making them in the model I'm interested in at the time I get the urge. I've been shooting trap for over 40 yrs with right-handed guns. It's no wonder I'm not very good at it. I finally quit using a semi-automatic shotgun because I'm too embarrassed when the empty shells keep hitting the guy to my right. Although, for a measly $12K I can buy a single-shot Kohlar with a LH stock. But then I'd have to go live in the box it came in.

    Remington makes an 1100 left handed shotgun or they did. I have seen them. You can get a shell catcher for the 1100's.

    I am left handed but shoot rifles and shotguns right handed. I have had very poor vision in my left eye. I do shoot handguns with my left hand. Getting holsters for a left handed person is a real problem. I get mine from Amazon. Its pretty much the only place I can find them.

    Yep. it's a PPS M2. It's encouraging that you liked the ones you had. When I worked at the pawn shop I let a Walther CCP get away from me. Been wanting a Walther ever since. Got this one for $325.00. Browning ammo was $30,00 for 200 rounds. I already had 100 rounds of 9mm Sig hollow points.

    I am beginning to question the validity of this thread.

    I don't see any pictures.

    When can we expect a range report on the new pistol?
