Yet, when a pristine S&W PPK/S showed up at the Gonne Shoppe where I worked, I had to have it!
I've always admired the panache of the Walther PPK/S. From the prewar Polizia work, through its service with the Luftwaffe, to it's after war popularity in the US, it's always been an interesting gun. Plus, there's that James Bond mojo going on. So when this little gem, with less than 100 rounds through it, manufactured by S&W with the extended beaver tail, came in - I was immediately drawn to it. However, I certainly didn't need another safe queen. I agonized for a while, then finally confessed my infatuation to the Princess. Turns out the first gun she ever fired was a PPK/S, and she had fond memories of it. She said I should get it.
Well, I didn't have to be told twice - I lept out of bed, called the gonne shoppe, and had a friend put it in the back with my name on it. First gun I've bought nekkid. Anyway, here she is:
BTW: I've only fired ONE PPK/S round. With the first one, the friggin' slide sliced the top of my hand open. Wouldn't have bought the gun without the extended beaver tail of the S&W version.
