I've wanted a Walther PPK for a while now and my wife gave me the okay to buy... It's not something I'll shoot often (although I'm excited Smith & Wesson has taken over production in the state and extended the beavertail so if I choose to, my hand won't be eaten alive). My primary reason for purchase is CC and I'm torn between the PPK and the slightly larger PPK/S. Weight is VERY close (less than 2 oz. difference) but size-wise the PPK/S definitly is a bit larger. It offers 7+1 while the PPK is 6+1. I have smaller hands so that isn't an issue. My biggest problem is I can't find a local dealer in Portland-Metro that has BOTH models on hand so I can physically compare the two in person. The PPK/S seems to be all over the place, but the PPK is very hard to find for some reason. If you have any knowledge on either I'd love the input and advice on which to buy.
