    Walther PPK/S - New home

    Here's a pic of a new (to me) gun. Although I would not have chosen this particular gun, the price was so good, I had no choice.
    Will get to fire it next week (hopefully). I sure love the looks and feel of this gun. I can hear the James Bond theme every time I pick it up. I tried my best Bond poses for my wife and she's still laughing. Sigh... I guess a tuxedo instead of underwear and a belly would have made a difference. Maybe it was the way I said "Bond...James Bond" with a NY accent that ruined it.

    Nice grab - it's a sleek and sexy gun, and even if it's not the best gun these days, you'll still feel like a champ firing it.

    Edit: How much did you pay for it, if you don't mind me asking?

    $0 - can't refuse that price, can you?

    Still a dead on accurate pistol. Natural pointer and a testament to design that was both ahead of its time and stands the test of time. Looks like as Smith and Wesson build... Don Hume makes a very sweet holster for it

    It is S&W built. I'll check out the Don Hume holster, thanks.

    Don't buy cheap aftermarket magazines for it. The PPK/S historically hates cheapo mags.
    There are also Chinese knock-off magazines floating around out there complete w/ Walther markings - and they are worse than terrible.

    Also the PPK/S can be very finicky with regard to feeding some ammunition brands/types and bullet nose configurations.
    Buy multiple brands of ammo and see what will feed flawlessly and stick with that.

    Only James Bond used a 32 acp.
    Dont know why anyone would think many better guns out there,granted some are and designed long time ago yet so many copycats,most of the 9x18 com block guns,bersa thunder,etc.
    I carry a pa63-9x18,looks a lot alike and im happy with it safer than a glock or most made without manual safety,da fairly long not light ,sa is great,feel safe carrying it loaded with either safety on or in detent.
    So while its an older design its also a hard act to follow.

    I've always liked the looks of the PPK. How do I find my $0 special?!

    Allways wanted a PPK, hope too buy one someday soon.

    I'm no fan of the .32 acp or .380 but when I get my PPK I'm sure I'll buy some quailty ammo and carry the darn thing from time to time.

    Well made, classic and capable.

    Congrats & have fun!

    Beautiful, well made little pistol. Heavier, less powerful than the new choices out there, but it still is on my wish list just because.

    I've been looking into getting one lately. There are 3 around here, at 3 different gun shops, between $569 and $629. I happen to think the weight and size are an advantage, as I like the substantial feel. Still mulling it over...
