    I carry a Interarms Stainless PPK/S in a Don Hume pocket holster 90% of time. 5% my Colt Mustang and rest a 1911. I love the fit of the PPK/s in my hand and the size. I don't want that little plastic squrit gun in my pocket. I use CorBon 90gr HP at 1050 fps and 220 ft lbs. Those figures come from CorBon testing of a PPK/S. My pistol is flawless as long as factory mags and good ammo is used. I have also never been bit.

    OOOOps ! Very good point - thanks for catching my typo. On the Mak forum, there is a lot of discussion on the dangers of using the wrong 9x* sizes. The MAK is 9x18 (also available in 380.)

    Which is more expensive: The Walther PPK, PPK/S or the SIG P232?

    Carrying a Bersa Thunder .380

    I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 100% of the time. It has been a great gun. Very reliable. I carry it in a IWB Comp-Tac holster, strong side, about 4:00.

    I carry Rem Golden Saber 102gn HP. I did some unscientific expansion tests and liked them. I am attempting to post a pic.

    Oh, yeah

    I also have a Kel-Tec P3AT. I don't have a holster for it yet, so have not carried it. It also needs a little more breaking in.

    Hi - first post here, lurking since I met Tim Schmidt last summer. Anyway, I have two CZ-83's (one blue, one nickel - I really like these guns!) in 9-mak and they are part of my rotation of carry guns. In fact, one also does duty as a nightstand gun. Because of the layout of my home over-penetration is a real concern so the 9-mak with HP's makes a lot of sense to me. And the CZ's hold 16 rounds.

    They are great guns - accurate, tough, reliable as the sunrise, easy to carry, and just plain fun as well.

    I carry a stainless PPK/S with Pachmayr grips daily, and shoot it at least weekly. Easy to conceal, not too heavy, and it's been pretty damn reliable. Never a failure with my carry ammo (150ish rounds thru) and only a few with target ammo.

    I like it considerably, tho I dislike the sights. They need to be bigger, lol. Other than the sights, I am happy with the gun.

    My wife carries the Bersa. I like the sights more. I am more accurate with her pistol then wioth the PPK, but the more I use the PPK, the more natural it feels and more comfortable, and predicable it is. I like that.

    I agree, the Bersa is nice, but I know why the Walther is more expensive, but worth it.

    My wife is not a full time carrier yet, but when she carries it is a Bersa Thunder .380. When not at work my carry piece is a Bulgarian Makarov .380. It is my favorite shooter. It just hits where I point it. With a little practice I have become pretty proficient with the mag release. I tried using a piece of leather through the release as shown in the picture below, but found it distracting and removed it.

    I carried a PPK .380 for 8 or 9 years. The gun always functioned
    flawlessly, and I loved it. Still do. A year or so ago I bought a CZ "RAMI", Model 2075, .40 S&W sub-compact.
    The CZ is my number one "carry" gun now, just because of the
    increase in power over the .380 acp cartridge.
    If I had a large enough body frame to pull it off, I'd carry a full-sized 1911 .45 all the time. But since I can't, I carry the RAMI. It is a
    pretty hot little pistol, and very accurate.

    Walthers are great little guns. I don't own one but have shot my buddy's on a few occastions. Pretty accurate for a small package and points very naturally. Nothing wrong with a .380 JHP for carry.

    I carried a nice Cz83 with PT Nites for a couple of summers.
    Was replaced with a 9mm RAMI.

    Sold the 83 last week..just had a hard time locating .380 ammo locally.
    I've also owned a 9mm MAK 83 in satin nickle. Same problem with ammo supply.

    The 83 is safe and sound as any pistol can be. They have controls identical to my Cz75s and superb accuracy for a pocket pistol
    caliber firearm.
