Range Report: Walther PPS M2 — Redefining Conceal Carry

Walther’s new PPS M2 is an excellent example of the refinement Walther brings to conceal carry pistols. The original PPS Classic ushered a 9mm conceal carry pistol that was thin, polymer framed with modular backstraps, and a striker fire trigger. The M2 does the Classic one better by using all the great features of the Classic and combining it with features found on the Walther PPQ series such as the ergonomic grip shape and grippy texture.

Comparing Inexpensive Red Dot Sights

For the price of a state-of-the-art Aimpoint purchased in the 1980s, you could buy eight $50 red-dot sights today. The question many of us have is, how good are these inexpensive red dots? To see for myself, I compared three sights costing under $50— BSA Model RD30 ($19.99), NcStar DBB130 ($27.23), and the Tasco BKRD30 ($30.30). In addition, I added a potential ringer — a Bushnell TRS-25 ($80.72) — that cost nearly double the other sights, but is still affordable for most budgets.
