    Default Walther PPK .32 ACP

    I see Walther USA in Ft. Smith, AR has begun shipping the Walther PPK and PPK/s chambered in .32 ACP. When I find one I will jump on that faster than Bill Clinton on Jennifer Flowers!

    Might be very worthwhile! I wish you a long, happy and successful "relationship"! BTW be sure you're aware of what you're feeding it! My son's formed law enforcement organization permitted .32 ACP as the smallest caliber their officers could carry as back-up or off duty. But only if they used Winchester Silvertips. I'm sure there are better choices on the market today! Search them out and use them if you're carrying the piece for "social" reasons!

    Other than the James Bond thing, I don't understand why people like the PPK. It sucks to shoot. You have to hold it a very specific and uncomfortable way to shoot it without getting slide bite. Even the newer models that have the beavertail will still get you if you have beefy hands. And the beavertail itself will dig into the web of your hand. I hate every PPK and PPK/s I've ever shot.

    If you haven't shot a PPK or PPK/s, I recommend you try one before you buy.

    I rounded off the tang to alleviate the bite.

    I shot a .380 PPK of recent production. What an angry little mean gun to shoot.

    But I have to say the .32 ACP Walther PPK is an interesting proposition, probably more pleasant to shoot.

    Had a .380, most unpleasant of all my .380s. Did try a .32, not too great either. Now I carry a Kel-Tec p32; better in every way except for the literary cachet.

    I have one, go get one. The 32 is not bad to shoot, they can be picky about ammo. they are not 25 yard shooters, but great under 15 yards.
