All right BDCSam! Thank you for proving me wrong, and thank you for sharing the picture of your beautiful PPK! We all love to see pictures of nice Walthers and you've done us all a service with your post. Thanks!

I believe you've made the correct choice. Get to the range and start practicing! You'll be amazed how accurate this little handgun is. It's one of the finest handguns ever made.

It's carried in a Pocket Holsters PocketHolster in the right front pants pocket. Great little holster, all leather, made in the USA
Thanks, I need a holster for it too! I'll check it out.

It's a .32, made in 1965 according to the chart and number.

=> Sam: A nice PPK. Some pics of my PPK you'll find here (if you like). About the value I can't say anything, sorry. The US market is not comparable to the German market. In Germany you'll pay about 100€...
LOL, is that allot?

The gun market in Germany is down since the last aggraviation of the german gun control law. Supply is high, but demand is low...

My preferred holster is a Bianchi Pro 100. Second is a High Noon Split Decision.

Carry it and shoot it! Some people get caught up in the monetary value of a gun or their perceived vision that a particular pistol is too collectible to be "ruined" by carry and shooting.

If you shoot a gun and clean it well and you're careful with it, no one will be able to tell (on a gun that's already been previously fired, not an unfired gun).

I have my grandfather's Browning shotgun which he shot trap with. My dad shot it. I shoot it. It's in great condition and it's a first year production gun from 1955 and it's very collectible and valuable.

I would never sell it though. I love shooting it and the family tradition of pulling the same trigger that two previous generations pulled. My daughter and nephew have shot it too.

If it gets a little more wear, it doesn't matter. It will go to my daughter or my nephew when I'm dead. I'm not selling it.

mm6mm6, that's just so cool. Those old Belguim made browning were some great firearms.

Thanks! I really like the Browning Double Automatics. I bought two more for my wife and daughter. My grandpa's is Velvet Grey and theirs are Dragon Black and Chocolate Brown.
