I have pretty small hands. It might suit me.

I carried one (ppk's)for several years. As pistols improved through the years as in concealment and weight. I have changed. Although I still carry a 380 at times I now carry larger cals. . My walther is in the safe. I used to have a issue of jams with it. But after a lite ramp job. It shoots anything I put in it. Seems on a stock pistol, it has a slight hump on the ramp. Or so says the older guy's at the range. After a round pencil and emery cloth. Removeing the loaded round pin and spring just under the rear sight. And disableing the hammer drop ( which now I wished I hadnt done but it scaried me years ago). Trigger job. This is a most wonderfull pistol! I still get a lot of enjoyment from shooting it. And dont think I will ever sale it.

I have 2 Walthers and have carried them alot. Both of mine are very accurate. But they are on the heavy side. I now carry a Smith model 37 snubby.

I religiously carry my bersa thunder and love it. Never had any hiccups. The bersa just felt better in my hand and I like the trigger a lot better especially when shooting in double action mode.

polish p-64...more powerful than a ppk (9mm mak), same size and a lot less $$$. in a desantis pocket holster, conceals well even in close-fitting jeans.

Funny you should mention the P-64. I have been looking at them quite extensively.

I just picked up a P64 and have not been disappointed with it. Shoots great, small and for the price you can't do better.

I just might pick one up. I'm just weary of ammo availability and it being a surplus weapon.

The Poles made the pistols very well and the military and police that they issued them to almost never fired them so all they have is some ware from sitting in holsters for years.
