Shot Show 2017 Industry Day: Shooting Walther’s new Creed and Q5 Match


Despite it’s somewhat “HiPoint-esque” appearance, Walther’s new Creed is one of the most ergonomic pistols I’ve ever fired. And it may have the best out-of-the-box trigger on the market.

I sent a few rounds downrange Monday with the Walther Creed and the Q5 Match.

Both are incredible performers.

Follow-up shots came quickly — the pistols’ recoil is tamed by the aforementioned ergonomics.

These were some of the best pistols we encountered during all of Industry Day.

I’ll be buying a Creed. I only wish they’d named it after a better band.
