    I bought steel today

    I bought an all steel gun for the first time in likely 15 years today. I think you all are corrupting my polymer disposition. I picked up a stainless PPK today. I've wanted a PPK since I was old enough to shoot I guess, the Bond movies don't factor in, I just always liked the shape of the gun and the feel of it. Anyway I brought a steel gun home and six boxes of various 380 ammo, range day tomorrow.

    Edit: OK figured out the photo bit, thought I'd throw the LCP in the photo for comparison....Quality of photo is lacking, iphone is good at a lot, photography isn't part of the good.

    MIght want to wear a glove, or at least put a bandaid in the web of your firing hand... I hear PPK have a tendency towards biting.

    Enjoy your new steel, but they CAN bite.

    They've been called 'choo choo' marks since they leave two lines that look like train tracks.....red, bloody, train tracks....careful if you got big hands friend...

    No proof. No proof at all that you really have a PPK

    If it is a S & W Walther PPK/s don't worry about the choo choo marks it has a longer beaver tail then the German or Interarms.
    Hitler once said, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerers who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”

    It's a classic... just like the PPK railroad tracks! But if you got the model made under license by S&W, there's more of a 'beavertail' to protect your skin.

    Great purchase. The PPK is a fantastic pistol. I've not had any problems with slidebite and I have an older Interarms model. Love the way it shoots, I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed mine.

    I'm fairly certain that the PPK models had bite issues, they just never did for me personally.

    I like the looks and feel of the PPK as well. Almost purchased one but opted for something else at the time. In hindsight, it was in fact a Walther that was my final vinyl of guns.
