    As big of a Walther and James Bond fan as I am, I don't think I'd carry one given the chance. No FPB means you really should carry with the safety on, but as a lefty, that becomes a bit of an issue.

    If I did get one, it'd be in .32 and I'd only shoot it for fun (and oh boy would it be fun!).

    The one I dry fired at my LGS had such a terrible trigger that I thought it was broken. I don't know if they all have such heavy trigger pulls but I was turned off immediately.

    Is it a good choice for CCW? Maybe

    Are there better choices for CCW? Absolutely

    If I weren't a designer/maker, my girl's pink-handled PPK would be skyfalling from this holster:

    Give the late Paris Theodore his due, he was the right man at the right time. It's just that it expired almost immediately when the big boys joined in.

    My PPK was made in around 1962, A cousin brought it back from Europe when he was in the army. Its a 32 auto and heavy for its size. I once used it as a CC gun but wouldn't now because other than its original mag it wont feed reliably. Ive tried Walther and after market but none have worked. Either the first or last round hangs up. DR

    Like you, I love the idea of the pistol. I hope to own one someday but there are superior choices for CC out there these days. I think Bond used a shoulder holster so I imagine I'd follow suit.

    I'm a PPS owner. I picked the gun up when I traded in my 642 snubbie. Honestly, it was an impulse buy. It's a great shooting gun but havent considered it as a carry option because of the size to capacity. If I cant get my hands on a Shield before summertime I might just go ahead and start carrying. After all it does have a much smaller footprint than my XD subcompact.

    The Walther PPK/S is a gun I've always wanted not so much for carry but just to have in the collection. I mean afterall it's James Bond's gun.
