Oops! I Did It Again! PPK/s


Moped

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!

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.

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!

      Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 For sale. Like New Condition with box and manual. Purchased in Feb 2017. Taken to the range once, fired about 225 rounds of various FMJ and JHP ammo. All ammo ran flawlessly. The gun was surprisingly accurate but the trigger bit my finger more than I was comfortable with. None of the You Tube reviews mentioned anything about this so I guess I was the odd man out on this. Anyway, I'd rather sell it and get something that doesn't pinch my trigger finger.
      $180 + bill of sale to TN resident and DL or Carry permit.

      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.

      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.

      The Canik TP9 SA.... Looked at one of these several weeks back when my wife and I were looking for her a new handgun (she ended up with the XD-9 mod2 sub compact)... Well I really liked the feel of the trigger and just the overall feel of the Canik. I think it would be good to have a full sized semi auto on hand considering all I have currently is the XD mentioned above and my shield 2.0 EDC gun. Well I went back the other day and they still had it so I went ahead put it on layaway. In a few more weeks I will have it in hand. I have already seen ways to deactivate the decocker but is it really that big of a deal? Any other general feedback or things I should look out for on this particular firearm?
