    Walther PPK/s .380

    This is my 1st reply to your discussions. Bought a PPK/s several yrs ago but didn't spend much time at the range until today. Did carry it in the car though. Was part of a S & W recall several yrs ago, got gun back in 4 wks. Today put 75 rounds through it. Only problem was it pinched my trigger finger between the bottom of the trigger and the top inside of the trigger guard. I'm right handed so the pinch is on the bottom inside of my trigger finger.
    As for stopping power I agree that the .380 2X center of mass with HP will do the job. I have a 1911 but its too big to carry around. Want to start my wife on the .380 but want to resolve the trigger pinch 1st. Anyone else have the problem or any ideas? Thanks in advance and keep up the well thought-out discussions.

    I just don't like .380's, the ammo is too expensive for the power. I'd rather use a 9mm or .38spl personally.

    I have a PPK/S from S&W, and it works without any problems to date. I have had it 8-months, and put 1000 rounds in the tube. Never had a FTF nor FTE. So far, it is as relaible as my G19. I admit to feeling more confident with my Glock...and I am not sure why that is. Increased magazine capacity? Possibly because my Glock has tru-glo tritium sights and a CT laser. I plan on getting a laser for the PPK/S, but the lack of night sights is something that does bother me, I guess. Other than that, I love my Walther. Never shot one from another manufacturer, so I have nothing to compare to, but it has been super reliable!

    Question, does the ppk/s have a tilting barrel or fixed?

    Thanks, then the PPK/s should be just as accurate as the Bersa.

    I own four ppks one german ppk/s, one interarms ppk stainless in 32 and two S&W model ppk in blue and one stainless in 380. I love the S&W made guns because they work. Feed ramp redesigned for hp's and longer tang to eliminate slide bite. My S&W walther's are superb.

    I have a newer S&W PPKS. It's a great shooter and has been very reliable.
