Having been deprived of material goods as a child, my dad has poor impulse control when buying things. This has led to a whole bunch of crap in his house with As Seen on TV logos. It has also led to some really awesome things like remote control helicopters and my Glock 22 he can't use due to having a weak wrist from having it shattered earlier in his life. In his teenage years, he was really into the James Bond books and later on, the movies. He was at a gun store the other day and picked up a used Walther PPK (S&W made) in .380. The guy behind the counter convinced him his wrist could handle it. I was pretty doubtful until I got to hold it and was surprised at its hefty weight, so I have hope.
He was only back in town for a day so we didn't get to go to the range and it will be a couple weeks before he is home again. If you are familiar with the PPK, I'd like your opinions on it, especially regarding recoil.
