Thank you very much! Any recommended ammo? I’ve yet to shoot it just because it seemed to be in such nice condition.

I have a similar vintage PPK that likes WWB and Remington UMC.

Those old grips are brittle. There is a possibility that they could crack during shooting or removal. I don't want to discourage you from shooting your pistol. Just be aware of the risk.

Much appreciated, I will only shoot it if I ever end up comfortable enough to remove them and get some replacements.

Matt, got mine off without too much drama (I was gentle...), but they are fragile.
With the family history of the pistol, and the condition, maybe just don't mess with it.

I appreciate that honest opinion. I’m thinking you’re right, I probably will just keep her in the safe looking pretty.

If you have plenty of PPKs in the safe that is an ok plan. If it's your only one I think you're making a huge mistake by keeping it a safe queen and missing out on shooting one of the greatest pistols of all time. It's what they're for.

I respect that opinion sir, just if something were to happen to it I’d be pretty upset. I may just have to try and track another one down or maybe a pp. I definitely do want to shoot one though.
