    I have a german ppk/s and i have to say its the most accurate sub cal gun i have eaver seen . No problems with it at all on reliability either . Untill i went to Kahrs it was my primairy carry 9 times out of 10 . I have not owned an american so cant speak to smith's quality and the Kahrs are basicly same size or smaller with full 9mm + stainless + to me about the same felt recoil due to the differances in blowback and locked design . I keep it for the " bond factor " LOL and have to get it re blued since it was used as a carry gun for quite a while . If i were to buy today i would pick up a Kahr , or wait a bit for the Kel-Tech pf9 depending on the $$ i was willing to spend . I am glad i have my little ppk/s and really dont want to sell it , but I shure wouldnt buy another one knowing what i know now .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    I have a new S&W PPK that I bought about 6 months ago. I've shot 240 rounds through it so far without a single problem. The fit and finish are great! It's a pleasure to own such a classic gun. It's also quite slim and comfortable to carry IWB.

    I've mentioned this before

    Just thinking about it again though.
    I originally bought the PPK/S for my Wife & she just did not have the finger/hand/arm (whatever) strength to easily operate the PPK/S slide. She shot it quite well but, had trouble with the slide which was too stiff for her.

    My PPK experience

    I bought a used PPK about 7 years ago - the blued Interarms version of the gun, in .380 caliber. I put several hundred rounds of various ammo through it at the range, and it never jammed. It was also pretty accurate, for a small gun with very small sights. It did not "bite" my hand, so I guess I was holding it right.

    I carried it once in awhile, in a thin suede Bianchi IWB holster. The gun and grips were so thin that it was very comfortable in this mode, and concealed easily. I carried it chamber loaded and safety off with 6+1 rounds of Federal Hydrashok, relying upon the fairly long and heavy double action trigger for safety, much like a revolver.

    I haven't used it much lately, as I am a little concerned about the adequacy of .380 in stopping an attack. I prefer the calibers .40, .45 and .357 and use them preferentially. But I would use the PPK in the future if circumstances called for a small hideout or backup gun.

    Any gun developed in 1928 and still being manufactured and sold must have something going for it, don't you think?
