    Default A couple of older gals

    I say gals because I think the Walther PP is a sexy looking piece. I've posted my PP in .22LR here before, but not my .32.
    So her she is:

    She's the older sister (83 vs 59) and not as pristine as the .22, but I'm pretty sure she's been around the block a few times, where as I doubt the .22 had been fired much before it came into my hands. Still, the 32 looks decent and shoots wonderfully

    What the heck, here's the 59 year old .22


    Regards,

    Looking pretty fine for the tender age of 83. I think that's the other Walther that was in my mom's safe at one time but it must have been the boyfriends at the time. This was 30 years ago give or take. He was a real gun guy and it was full of rifles and pistols. Most of which I procured in his behalf. He lived on Orcas Island a far piece from me and lived with the Little Nickel, a want ad type paper. He'd find something, call on it and have me go check it out and buy it if it was good. Sometimes a tough call but most sellers understood and said they would take it back if he wasn't pleased.
    His kids ended up with most of them on his passing or sold and given the money.

    You gotta love old gals, specially pretty ones.

    Could not agree more. Amazing how they achieved such a beautiful sleek design so many years ago. A classic for sure. A Regal Queen. A Tuxedo Gun. Thanks for posting.
    PS cannot believe that many years ago, I was stationed in ULM and did not go visit Walther.

    Nice looking guns. I remember buying a PPK/S in 380 back in the early 1990's for $125. Then I decided I was not James Bond so I sold it a few years later for around $500 to fund something else.

    Beautiful pistols. Certainly among the top guns in aestheticly pleasing designs. I still kick myself for not buying the .32acp PPK I was offered years ago. What was I thinking. I did manage to find both a PPK/s and PP in .22lr as well as a very nice PP in .32. Some of the most valued in my collection.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Judging by today's left wing, looks like Senator Joe McCarthy was right after all.
