    How does it feel? Do you recommend it for carry?

    I carry a bersa thunder from time to time copy of the ppk but a better gun in my opinion. Way better trigger and a better feed angle for hp ammo. Ive owned ppk's in the past and while the material quality is higher than a bersa the bersa is a superior version functionally than the ppk

    My preference for carry is something chambered in 45acp but when i need to be uber discrete the bersa goes with me.

    The only problem I have had with my Bersa .380 CC is getting add on parts, like extra mags are hard to find. The market for extras probably is not enough to peak the manufacturers interest.

    Other models of the Bersa Thunder line are easier to get extras for.

    As for the gun I love it, easy to conceal, shoots well and so far zero problems after over 1K rounds.

    My wife bought herself a PPK/S. They are very nice pistols. IMHO, they are a bit on the heavy side for the caliber, but that's my opinion. The wife loves it.

    I've had a PPKS for 30 years and it looks pretty, but it is to heavy to ccw and I hope someone on here says they can hit with them because I have never been able to hit squat with mine, it's been retired to the vault for about 20 years or so. I really wish I had something good to say about it other that it's pretty and 007 carried one.:(

    I use the PPK/s at times.

    Though it is a little heavier than some of the firearms on market now.

    My buddy carries a stainless PPK .380,one thing I noticed is just how small it really is in your hand.

    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.
