    My new PPK/S

    I finally got the PPK/S I've wanted for many years now. I did what everyone said to. Field strip it, clean/lube it, add gunslick graphite, etc.

    My first time at the range I shot 70 rounds with 2 FTF and 1 FTE.

    My second time I shopt 200 rounds with 2 FTF and 0 FTE. I'm considering it an improvement

    I love how fun this gun is to shoot!!! Except for the blister on my hand

    Hey Masterbbg how about some pictures of your new gun? Sounds like it's coming along just fine. Most all of these small autos need a little break in time. Good luck with yours.

    Congrats on the new Walther!

    It is true that the PPK/s needs a break in period. Mine took about 300 rounds and have not had a malfunction since.

    was the ammo all fmj or was it hollow point? or does it even matter? I'm thinking about getting one in April/May.

    If it were mine I would go with FMJ for the first 100 or so anyways. Then I would try some hollow points.

    I've had a PPK/S for over twenty years. It is easy to conceal and mine is as accurate as I am. What I like about it is its appearance. Let's face it, this is a classic. I also the quality of design and manufacture. Finally, I like the fact that this is a narrow pistol.

    I know people brag about being able to conceal a 1911 or a double stack Glock. I suppose that I could do that, too. But heck, who wants to? Yeah, I know that a .380 does not have the knock down power of a 40mm Bofers gun. But I just have to believe that two or three .380 Silvertips would dim any attacker's enthusiam for the fight.

    I guess the bottom line is this. The design of this gun is now nearly 80 years old. There are lots of PP/PPK series Walthers out there and more are sold every day. That is as strong an endorsement of this pistol as you can get.

    I have to agree on the classic beauty and history of the PP-series pistols. It would be the #1 reason why I would buy one.
