Doesn't S&W manufacture the PPK in the U.S.A. nowadays?

Thanks for the question.I have owned American, Italian, Austrian, Czech and German guns. The German ones had the best quality, trade/resale value, engineering, accuracy and reliability. This is my opinion. We all have one I am not talking out of my ass. I would be if I only owned German guns. Peace.

Interesting. I figured it was something like that. Solid reasoning. I've never owned German guns. At least not yet. I have no qualms against them.

I owned the Baretta and fired the Taurus. Oh I owned a .357 from Taurus too. I think the Italian gun has better quality materials. I also fired my friends 1911 from Taurus. I liked the quality of the Mark IV I used to own much better. Taurus is cheaper, and they work, but they are not as good as the originals they copy. Oh, I owned a PPK nock off from Taurus too. It failed to eject casings. I took it back and bought some weird plastic, fairly recent gun to the US market, called a Glock 17....

***Break****

Of the original 3 options in the original post, I would take the PPK if I wanted a .380.
The S&W if I wanted a revolver.

(I've had good luck with my PPK/s.)

I own a PPK 380. It is a good little shooter that has eaten everything I've put through it after the first couple magazines. And I have put some crappy ammo through it! I handled the Sig also, but the PPK felt better in my hand. Especially with the magazine with the finger rest. Put them both in your hand and see what gives you the warm fuzzies. They are both good guns. I also seem to have an affinity for well made, steel guns that have been around a while. I have a SS Colt Gov't to pair with the PPK.

Those are the three I've narrowed down for the lady. She does not like recoil much. Was looking for some personal experiences, so thanks. Anyone comment on a j frame .38 special recoil vs a subcompact 9? I imagine it is less than the 9. She does not like the 9 I carry. She likes my beretta though, just too big for her hands, and she is familiar and comfy with the operation, so i thought ppk since it has the decocker/safety. She likes the looks of that and the p238. i have shot that a bunch. super easy to manipulate. The .380s are something she can handle and would have fun shooting.

Just another helpless man hoping to get his woman involved in something he loves....
