I'd be curious to hear some real world feedback as well. I carry a G27 or a S&W 642 daily but I've been looking at the PPS for a while now. I love my 27. I'm 5'11 195lbs and I think the 27 works well for me because I don't usually worry about "printing" so I wear it in an OWB Serpa holster. My 642 is more of a "grab and go" if I'm just running to the store or something and it rides in my front pocket.

I own both, love my 26, love my pps, 26 a brick ? I totally agree, which is why it stays in the safe for ccw. I carry the ppf in a pocket holster in my front right pocket with no problems. This handgun does have some snap to it, but nothing that would make you question your choice. The firearm is only the delivery system, try different makes of top of the line ammo, to find out which is best for you and your pps For me with the pps I settled on Hornady Critical Defense ammunition. never had a ftf or one jam. As far as the 6 rnd mags ? nothing that a spare mag in your back pocket wont solve. Hope this helped. Best of luck

They do have 7 round magazines available. It's not much but at least you would get (7+1) rounds.

"The reason it doesn't feel like a Block is the single stack magazine; hence the 'narrow' part. You either have thin or high capacity and thin is much easier to carry"
I disagree, I have double stacks that are half the width of a single and double stack glocks, Glocks are just bulky blocky guns. Pure and simple
"One problem with having extra magazines on your person is that if you ever are involved in a shooting, you appear to be "looking for trouble" when the police arrive."
So, going by this theory, allow me to ask this question. The fact that actually "having" a gun isn't cause for the police to assume you were looking for trouble ? and having a spare mag is ? lol now that's funny. Although a prosecuting attorney may try to spin it as a crazed vigilante. I doubt that any police Dept would give it a second thought. The Police just there to investigate and report the facts of the case they do not make assumptions, draw conclusions or prosecute anyone. This is what the attorney generals offices and Grand Juries of your peers are for.
"In the unlikely event that you are forced to draw your weapon, you probably won't need more ammunition than what you have in the magazine, if any shots are fired at all. Magazine changeouts in a surprise encounter are unlikely despite what some think."
you really need to expand your thinking here.
just for starters I would look here
In just these 2 examples I would much rather have 13 rnds than seven.....but that's me. In both of these cases, had someone fired on and killed either one of these suspects you honestly think having one mag or 2 would have made a difference to a grand jury whether or not you would have been indited ?
Also I would recommend to anyone, never draw your weapon unless you are prepared to firer it. Drawing your weapon to "scare" anyone is a dangerous mistake. [imho]
"The most problematic of situations you will face are the gray areas. Billy Joe Stanley gets all drunked up and is a funnin you by shoving and pushing. His drunken buddies insinuate you have been a messin with Lurlene, his wife/girlfriend. You really can't shoot the jerk and you can't let him get the gun you are carrying. Who knows what the idiot will do? Buy him a beer and escape without letting the world know that you have a really nice stealable pistol. These sorts of situations are what make stun gun and pepper spray sales and are for more likely than any armed confrontation"
I just find this whole statement, well, plain silly...sorry
being involved in a shooting is a nightmare all the way around. And should be avoided at all reasonable cost. However if I find myself in such dire straights that I have to discharge my firearm to save a life the last thing I am worried about is a spare mag.
But thats me.lol

The PPS is a good gun but just a little quirky for me. I tried it out when comparing a couple of new carry options and settled on a Kahr CW9 . I just didn't like the mag release of the PPS plus the CW was less expensive, just as accurate and has a sweet trigger pull. It all really comes down to personal preference.
Before strapping up the Kahr, I carried a Sig P239 and even a bulky XD at times. The Kahr is like a little sports car when compared to those chunks. I'm sure you'll like the PPS for the same reasons.
