I bought my PPK in 1988 and have carried it ever since. I like everything about it! Ergonomically it fits my hand perfectly! Both the SA and DA trigger pulls are outstanding, right out of the box! I shoot it very well (qualified 485/500 including 8 rounds at 75 feet).

I just received it back from 75% coverage American Scroll engraving by Michael Gouse ( www.mtart.com ) and I absolutely love it! This coverage cost only $300!!!!

What do you all think?

Thanks! I'm carrying it every day though. The stainless really holds up. It hardly had a scratch on it after 19 years. The holsters from El Paso Saddlery that I use protect it pretty well!

One more PPK pic to add! Anyone know why the first picture has the two red Queens and the Nine of Hearts?



Michael Gouse is a true engraving artist. I now have four guns engraved by him.

Yep, it was Bond's hand when they were playing Baccarat in Casino Royale. He took a gamble and asked for a third card, it was the nine of hearts; giving Bond the 9 points he needed to win the game.

I'd like to learn how to play Baccarat. I like the concept, much more interesting than Texas Hold'em *rolls eyes*.

David The Gnome! I'm impressed! You are definitely a serious Bond fan!
That's another reason I like my PPK so much, there's something about the Fleming/Bond/PPK thing that I just like!

It's not quite as impressive as it sounds lol. I just started reading the James Bond novels last month so it was still fresh on my mind. A quick flip in the book told me what I needed to know. ;)

That is really a beautiful pistol. I much prefer the American Scroll to the Germanic Oak Leaf one often sees on the PPK!

That's the perfect Pocket Barbaque Pistol! What ever you do don't stop carrying it now!

Dep: If you go into the No. 10 Saloon in Deadwood, S.D., you can see the actual cards (aces and eights) that he held, as well as the table he was at and the chair he was in when he met his maker, as the saying goes.

Deadwood is a gambling mecca today, which is a shame, but the No. 10 is an authentic piece of Americana that's worth a visit, if you ever get to the Black Hills. Wild Bill is buried in Deadwood, with Calamity Jane at his side -- by her doing, not his.

No doubt Bill would have carried a PP, had they been around in his day.

I didn't know that!!! I watched and was a big fan of Deadwood on HBO. Very pissed that they cancelled it for no reason. I hope that one day I'll get out there and see those cards. Thanks a ton for the info. :)

very nice indeed....use it and carry it everyday...just like library books placed under glass...worthless except to look at...not my philosophy...so carry use and enjoy...couldn't tell from the photos but is that fairly deep relief or shallow...I much prefer deep relief American Scroll myself also...Blessings.

BulbBoy: just $300 and your will be just like it! www.mtart.com

Gila George: It's pretty deep. It looks great in person and it "feels" deep when you caress it with your sensitive fingertips (yikes! I'm getting carried away!)....
