Rewind a couple or four decades and the PPK was just about the only game in town if you had need of a small semi. My Interarms has logged lots of miles and I was glad to have it handy.
Today, there are more practical choices. But, these don't fit into the holy grail catagory and lack the 'cool' factor as James Bond didn't carry one. Better carry leather and ammunition choices are available today also.
My PPK hasn't seen daylight in several years. The aftetrmarket tritium lamps are now dull and I imagine the DA trigger would still feel like about 20 pounds. Just a personal comment, but one Kahr 9X19 has more utility value than a bucket full of S&W PPKs.
No 'dis, but you asked.
