I haven't had one misfire in thousands of rounds. Neither has anyone else I know personally. It fits in the hand fantastically. I have no frame/slide wobble.
I'm not sure what finish issues you are referring to...the only PPQ issues I have run into online are the "1st edition" (i think how...
Walther PPQ is arguably the best gun on the market right now...If you can get your paws on one it is likely you'll never want to put it down.
Much more comfortable than a glock IMO (hated the way they felt in hand).
Fanmtastic trigger reset. Just a fantastic gun.

I suppose you have figured out your taxes so when you file you come out exactly $0 return?
Oh, and I really don't mind "giving the gubment and intrest free loan" of...

I usually get back 3-500 federal and 1-200 state. You may think i'm having too much taken out, I'm ok with it. I would rather get money back than take the chances of owing money at the end of the year.
It all balances out anyways and...
I have heard horror storied about Kimbers.
IOW, all the arguments you are using about reliability and accuracy, could just as easily be said about Kimber or some other big name companies. And accuracy IMO is a lot more about operator than the gun itself.
