Jackie,

In my opinion even though the other pistols are good pistols. I believe the top quality pistol of the ones listed is the Sig P238. Not knocking the others but the qaulity, performance and accuracy of the Sig P-238 is unquestionable.

2 options I know are .380ACP, but isn't the S&W Mod 60 pro a .357 revolver?

Have you looked at the Bersa Thunder380? It is styled very much like the PPK and is MUCH more affordable. It is also available with a double-stack magazine that holds 14~ but at the expense of a thicker, heavier pistol.

Smith and Wesson. After reading reviews of the PPK, I wouldn't even consider it much of an option, but that's with no personal experience either. All reports I've read say they're uncomfortable as hell at the best, and damn near worthless arrty the worst, with the bersa as the better between the two.

Sig makes amazing guns. I can't say anything bad about them. They also have one styled after the PPK that I have shot, and it's awesome.

But Smith and Wesson wheel guns... oh yes. Oh yes.

And of course, because it's less expensive,..like a Kel-Tec p32 or P3-AT it's almost impossible to find a Bersa Thunder. I only see the .22LR around here,.in the 3.5" tube. I understand the 4.25" only comes in the larger calibers....wouldn't mind a .380 with a long barrel like that!...

Many moons ago, when I did PI work to supplement my teachers income(my Cousin had a law firm in Westchester co. NY) I had a pre-68 PPK in .380 as a Back-up. now we have the Stainless PPK/s in .22LR, and a stainless PP in .32, Plus an FEG.Walther copy in .32ACP. The SIG 230-232 is the PPK like SIG you speak of Trip....very sweet piece indeed...but Hard to find.

PPK has a long proven track record. Sig and Walther are high quality and reliable guns. Easy to shoot and very accurate. I would go with the German guns. I would love to have a PPK myself, but it does not meet my needs. I am a little confused why you pick to semi-auto .380s and one .357 revolver though.

You always do seem to gravitate towards the German guns. I know you live there and everything, but is there any other reason why?
