I know Deputy was just joking about being "bitten" by the PPK/S.
The first handgun I ever puchased was a PPK/S .380. It was a fine gun, an original Walther made in the early 1970's. It was a great pistol and I shot the heck out of it wiith very little problem. Back then there was only fmc and a couple of real goofy hollowpoints - which didn't feed too well.
I was never bitten buy that pistol. Or the PPK .32 I bought next. A few years later I picked up a Stainless PPK from Interarms and it carved my hand up with abandon. I laid blame on the fact the PPK is lighter in weight and just shorter enough to compromise MY hold on the gun. I sold the PPK (should have just put it in the back of the safe) and was without a .380 until I bought a PP Walther a few years back.
I had no trouble with the PP either, until it got me the other day, and that was my fault. The real "bite" of the Walther is that when you get one you can't stop, you just want more and more and more!!!!
