PK380 but in 9mm

Hello,
New to the forum. Purchased my first gun about a year ago.
It is the PK380. Now Iím looking for a new gun with a little heavier ammo.
I am I love with the design and feature of this gun. Being left handed I love the paddle mag release.
Is there a similar gun that fires 9mm?

PPS model 1 (aka Classic PPS) does 6, 7, or 8 rounds with paddles.
P99compact does 10, 15, 16 with paddles.
Both are outstanding weapons.

Another vote for the P99C here. There are also the HK VP9SK and P30SK.

Unless you need to conceal it, I'd recommend the full-size P99 over the P99c. Even for an experienced shooter, it's noticeably easier to control, especially when trying to shoot quickly. All of the guns mentioned so far in this thread are inarguably built to a higher standard than the PK380, so they'll all be a nice step up in that department, too.

Thank you. No, I donít carry it.
Well only to the range.
Iím not opposed to a longer gun.

Does your range rent guns. I love Walthers but there are other great guns on the market today. Shoot a bunch until you find one that you just can't do without.

The gun that I love is the pk380.
I would just like to have a higher caliber to shoot at the range and for home protection.

In that case the Walther PPQ Classic and P99 and the HK P30 and VP9 would all be excellent choices. The Walther paddles are longer and seem to give me a little more leverage than those on the HK pistols. However, the P30 is the only one of these that is hammer fired like your PK380.

I currently have the PPQ, P99C, and P30L V3. The P30 has the most comfortable grip. The PPQ has the best trigger and is the most accurate.
