Oops! I Did It Again! PPK/s

Recommended Posts

I might have made a huge mistake, boys. Could lead to a divorce. I stopped in my LGS (Crossroads Guns, in Fountain City), for some HV .22LR for my Stoeger Luger. I walked out with the .22 rounds and after putting a Walther PPK/s in lay-a-way.  It’s a beaut, a Interarms Stainless steel pistol,  with both mags, box, manuals cleaning rod... all for 5 bills plus tax and BCG. Lay-a-way for 12 months!

Oh Lord, what have I done???  😆😆😆

Looks like this!

Well done Sir! I know you'll love it.

I sorta have a thing for the Walther PP series myself.

It’s small enough to conceal it straight into the safe

I own over 60 guns but have never owned a PPK or a Walther of any type.  You may have inspired me to grab one.

Me either! I had intended on getting another 1911a1, but this pistol was in excellent shape and at a great price, I just could not pass it up. And it’s an iconic piece to boot! This was part of a 40 gun collection, they bought from an individual. They originally had two PPK/s and they sold the other one earlier in the week.

A PPK has always been on the wish list if I'm ever cash flow flush enough to justify the purchase.  Hopefully you leave some for the rest of us,  @Grayfox54
 

That's a beautiful collection, though.

12 month layaway?

How you could afford not to buy it?

"Honey, you will never believe what this didn't cost me!"

Congratulations on your newest addition.

They are having to compete with Harvey’s, so I’m not surprised that they went to a Long Lay-a-way plan.  

And I can honestly say Crossroad Guns is one of the best LGS in Knoxville. They have always been been super friendly and helpful. Even loaned me a bore sight system once. They stock lots of holsters too. May have the biggest selection in Knoxville. And they have a great selection of firearms! It’s nice having a LGS like them, just down the road!

I'm becoming a Walther fanboy myself. Bought a Walther PPQ, Q5, Pro steel frame, with that free money Uncle Sugar sent me a while back. Shoots and feels great with not a hiccup. Now it's an internal fight between another Walther or CZ for the next one?

If she gigs you about it, just use the same line they use when they buy something they don’t need just because it was on sale: “Hey Honey look how much I SAVED!”

 By the way, are you gonna wear that with a fine suit or a tux?

I just might! Definitely going to have to get a shoulder holster for it! Just like Bond!

Just wanna say...there's plenty of couches available on this forum just in case. And you could always bring your dog too.

If you are going to at one time or another be IN the doghouse, just make sure it has heat and A/C. Mine does but it doubles as a place to reload. LOL

I congratulate you, at five bones & the governor, for an Interarms, that's a good deal. I have had several, but am down to a '74 vintage Model PP in .22LR, in the older style, smaller plastic box.

I have had and shot many, including cutting my teeth on Pop's WWII bring back 7.65 PPK (gone, as we were stationed overseas, in West Germany no less, when they passed the 68 GCA and convinced pop that it was trapped over there forever). When I worked in a gun shop in Connecticut, back in the mid 80's, I remember getting one of the first American made Walther PPK in Stainless, and it would feed Winchester Silvertips.  Amazing to think that just back then, that was state of the art! I've had blue and stainless PPK/s and even a PP Sport for a few years, but one thing I remember, if you have meaty hands, watch those rear slide edges, they will slice you up. Being a blowback, and that small (imagine an early Duralum framed one!), they kick more sharply then say a Ruger LCP or a S&W Bodyguard or other locked breech .380.

I'd like to find a deal on a blue PPK in .380, I'd grab it again just because.

Enjoy yours!

Harvey’s Gun &Pawn has a blue Interarms on auction on Facebook, right now. It’s at $545 with 15 hours to go at that price.  Comes with two mags. It’s been handled and as some light scratches, but it’s still in very good condition.

I like the old Walther's also. I have a West German made (Inter-Arms imported) PPK/S in blued with some scratches. Clearly marked W.Germany. I could be convinced to part with it. DM me if interested.

I'm tapped out till I get this one out of lay-a-way.  Thanks though!

      Anybody ever try and run 7mm subsonic? Was thinking about a 300 Blackout but I'm not stocked on any ammo or components and after seeing 20 rnds for $30 at the LGS I think that boat has sailed for now.
      I've got an old Contender in 7mm TCU that I haven't shot in eons. Wondered if anyone had tried running something like that suppressed? I do have some makins' to get that going.

      Ordered a Shadow Systems MR920 optics-ready Combat model tonight.  I should have it within the next 21 days according to the terms of the sale.  Everyone is so damned backlogged due to the volume of sales lately. 🤪

       
      This will bring me almost full circle back to a Glock 19 sized gun.  I've got a few G45 models still that I won't part with, so that covers my 17rd Glock platform needs, but I have rediscovered the desire for the G19 size during some recent training.  Oh well... it's not like you can take money with you when you go, and my kids would just spend it on something other than guns.  🙂
       
       
      Now I need to decide what I am thinning out of the herd.  I've got an idea in mind but I need to take some current photos so I can go ahead and list it on TGO tomorrow.

      Went to an estate sale yesterday and picked up this Stoeger Luger .22, with an aluminum frame. I think it’s one of the best examples of one that I’ve seen.  Really a bit surprised by the size and heft. It’s very close to the only Luger P08 that I’ve ever fired! Hopefully I’ll get to shot it tomorrow.
