The single stack pistol that started it all. As more and more American’s began getting their concealed carry permits, the market started shifting to more smaller, thinner and lighter weight handguns. The 1911s and revolvers of the past feel like boat anchors compared to what’s available today. The Walther PPS was one of the first to hit the market with their super slim subcompact PPS model. At just one inch wide and nineteen ounces empty, the PPS is ideal for concealed carry. It’s also a great shooter and extremely reliable. A lot more options have hit the market since then, but still it’s hard to go wrong with the PPS.
