Impulse Buy - Damn my Lack of Willpower!

Okay, I was at my favorite local gun shop today (on business, swear to God!!) and there was a little pistol in a nice satin lined case. Nicely polished blue steel, well crafted, attractive lines. Used of course, but just barely, and definitely not abused. The price was reasonable so I went for it.

It's a Walther PPK/S in .380. Not a huge fan of the caliber, but she looked so nice. On close examination it is a well made pistol. It's marked Made in West Germany and Imported by Interarms. It has Pachmayr Signature grips on it...some nice fake ivory might look good on her though.

I always liked the look of the PPK/S...yeah it has a long kinda stiff double action pull, but the single action isn't bad at all. It's heaver than my Airweight 442, so IO don't think I'll be carrying this one, but I might have to check NetFlix or Amazon for a couple of Sean Connery Bond flicks. :)

I have always felt that the PPK/S had style...I've been tempted to get one since the eighties, when I lived very near Interarms. I always manage to talk myself out of it (for exactly the reasons you mention, Terry: trigger pull and caliber) but they are very cool.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: always do the first disassembly of a new firearm in the bathtub, drain closed, shower curtain pulled.

If your wife discovers you and wants to know why you're playing with guns in the bathtub, you're on your own.
