I have always liked the James Bond movies. So for fun I am thinking of getting a Walther PPK like he carried. This would just be for fun and shooting at the range. Does anyone here have any experience with one and can tell me how you like it or if you have just heard anything about them. Thanks for your help , Ed
Our resident Bond afficienado should be along shortly to help...
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
My wife has the PPK/S in .380. It's one of the Smith & Wesson-made guns. The DA trigger is indeed heavy, but it has a very short travel. It's kind of heavy for such a small pistol, but that's the all-metal construction. It's very accurate for a small gun.
If you're looking for authentic Bond, it's already been pointed out that he carried the .32. And if I'm not mistaken, the European-made models will have the magazine release in the butt of the gun instead of on the side, like my wife's.

"After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military."
