Again reviews are rought ..Limited support and you need a tool to take down ...I much rather shell out and have the real thing a P7M8I missed that requirement though I don't find my P99c to be tough. But I agree the CCP would be a perfect choice. The gas delayed recoil system makes the slide easy to manipulate and softer recoil for 9mm. Excellent ergos with a fantastic grip and pointability. Not too expensive either. Somewhere around $400 I think. Field stripping is s bit odd but can be done easily once you get used to it. Pretty sexy looking too in my opinion.

The PK380 is a solid good shooting firearm. Easy to rack, not to heavy, ergonomics are fine and it really is not an issue to take down, even with needing a tool. Love it!My dad is finally looking at purchasing his first pistol. His requirements are as follows: Crisp trigger, .380 or 9mm, easy to rack the slide, easy to use, and around $400. I was thinking the Walther PK380. Who has one and how do you like it?
I have to say after owning a PPK/S for 15 years, I am not a fan. It's one of those guns that works ok, but is brutal at the range. The last time I shot mine my hand was literally bleeding after 50 rounds. And the problem with carrying it is how do you know it still works if you never shoot it?If 380 is his preference I can highly recommend the P-P-K/s I purchased mine used in the early 80's and it's as solid as they come. It has to be 40 yrs old and has never once had a failure of any kind. And it eats every type of 380 ammo I've put thru it
without a hiccup. Add to that being super easy to conceal and the PPK/s makes for an ideal CC pistol...IF 380 is your caliber of choice.

After that, I put it on consignment at my LGS.
Oddly I have the same problem I dont own any ppk or ppk/s in 380 they were really not made for that round imop ..They kick hard and bad imop ..The 32 and 22lr models I love and carry but I will only touch the PP in 380hmmm, I've never experienced a problem with mine, either from function or from handling it. I guess they're not for everyone,
just like anything else...guns, cars, cell phones, you name it...variety of selection insures there's something for everyone.
