You might take a look at a Bersa Thunder 380 "CC" model. It is a modified Bersa Thunder with a 3.25 inch barrel, very thin profile, reduced rear tang, smaller controls and integral low profile fixed sights designed as a concealed carry weapon. It has its own eight round magazine (not the regular 7 round Bersa magazine), alloy frame, and only weighs approximately 17.5 ounces with empty mag in place. It is still slightly, just slightly, larger than a PPK/S but much lighter. It is thinner than the PPK or PPK/S though the grip. I have one and also a PPK/S and must say both have been perfectly reliable - so far - in a modest amount of shooting. A caveat being that all my shooting has been with full metal jacket as that is what I prefer in .380.
Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do, or do without.
