    Picked up a 'like new' Walther PPK/S today. Figured why not, always wanted one. Any other owners here?

    I've always wanted one. It's a cool little gun but I've never spent the money.
    Make sure it likes the ammo you pick before you carry it.
    Btw I like the black.

    That's why I'm asking. Hopefully someone can just tell me what they like. It is a cool gun. Classic. Feels great in your hand. Came with a second mag. Only had 1 owner and the gun store owner sold it to that guy, who then traded it back to them years later. I walked in today, saw it and said to heck with it, I'll take it. Cost $495. Not sure if that's good or bad. I think (hope) it's average.

    They're not inexpensive guns.

    She's a beauty. I always wanted one with a suppressor.

    I have a PPK non s version in .32 acp and it is one of my favorite guns. The joy i get from plinking with it is just amazing. It is also a favorite of mine to take on rabbit hunts as a back up. Hard to beat taking a rabbit at close range with a subcompact. I have lighter and more powerful options i use for EDC in the city but it has it niche alright!

    I have the Hungarian knock-off of the real deal, but I have never had the right money at the right time to own the real one. Congrats on your purchase of a damn nice pistol.

    Never had one. But I did have the P99 that Daniel Craig used in Casino Royale. Didn't like it and ended up selling it.

    Ppk380

    I've had a PPK380 for about two years now. Excellent CCW with inside the waistband holster. Fun at the range and very accurate surprisingly for it's size but the ammo is getting scarce so stock up when you find it.

    Back in the 80's I had a pre war PPK .32, which is what Bond used, with capture papers and it's original holster in almost new condition. It had the brown plastic grips without that pinky extension on the mag. I loved that little gun, but was forced to sell it in order to buy my Winchester Model 21 that I couldn't turn down.

    Those Walthers were great guns and I liked it's take down design by lowering the trigger guard. The only Bond gun I have is the same type Walther pellet gun used in some of the movie posters.

    That pellet gun, what is Walther's real gun that it's modeled on?

    I think it was designed after the 1936 model Walther Olympia .22 target pistol. That pistol if can be found mint and in the box can sell for $4-8,000. The grips, trigger guard and rear of the slide is very closely duplicated in the pellet version. This 4.5mm(.177)pellet pistol actually has an exaggerated recoil that simulates firing the real gun for training purposes. There is also a cheap Polish copy of my LP53 that they used for training in their military. How good it is I don't know. I believe the LP53 were manufactured in different LP models from 1953-83. Mine was purchased in 1963.

    I once knew a guy named James Bond. It was about 40 years ago. I had a part-time job as a security guard, and James Bond was a lieutenant in the guard company. He was the spittin' image of Barney Fife - about 5'2", maybe 100 lbs, dumber than a box of rocks, but extremely cocky. He carried a S&W model 64, a .38 special revolver with a 4" barrel. He was too stupid to follow normal, reasonable safety procedures, was prone to waving it around. Once he pointed it at me, and when I looked down the barrel, it had little pieces of plaster in it, lotsa dust, and would probably self-destruct if he ever tried to fire it. He had a habit of sneaking up on a guard at oh dark hundred in the morning to try to catch the guard loafing. One time I saw him coming, and hid close to where he was sneaking into the building. As he came thru the window, I pointed my S&W model 24 (a .44 special) at his face and yelled, "Halt halt halt". The pee was running down his leg and he was shaking like his wife's vibrator. Then he chewed me out for scaring him. A few months later he got feisty with a truck driver, and the driver turned him into a black and blue zombie for a few days. :D

  17. James Bond's PPK... in 7.65mm...

    I wanted a PPK when I was young. There was one in a local store in town and I would go and lust after it. To give you an idea of time, the pistol was a PPK (not /s) and the PPK/s wasn't being produced yet.

    Time goes on. I never did get one. However, I am now collecting 'Art Deco' .32 ACP pistols, so it's back on my want list. If I can find one without the NAZI proofs for money I can afford. Hope springs eternal.
