    If you had your choice between the Beretta 84FS or the Walther PPK380, which would you choose?
    Which is the most reliable and shooter friendly?

    I have never owned a PPK, but i did own an 84f. I sold it, and it is the one gun that I wish I had back. 100% reliable and deadly accurate.

    The Beretta costs more, but is a superior gun.

    I don't have the Berreta 84 but I do have a browning BDA pretty much the same gun. I like the Walther but no where near the gun that the browning/beretta is.

    The two pistols really aren't comparable.

    The Walther PPK was designed for discreet carry, it was a smaller version of the Walther PP was was designed as a Police duty weapon worn in a belt holster...both were chambered in .32ACP.

    The Beretta 84 was also designed to be worn and carried in belt holster. It's nod to the American market was the chambering in .380 and the staggered magazine for higher capacity.

    In feel and function, the Beretta, being a more modern design, is a better gun

    The PPK is smaller, but yet weighs about the same as the Beretta. The Beretta holds 6+1, the Beretta holds 13+1. The PPK bites, the 84 doesn't. IMO the Beretta trigger is better. Both are quality guns, offer good accuracy, sights are similar, but I prefer the Beretta, especially if "shooter friendly" is a consideration.

    Have owned and carried both a Walther PP,..and a Beretta 84. I carried the Walther for almost 20 years and sold it when I acquired the Beretta. The Walther was a great gun. The Beretta was 84 was better. My 2 cents worth.

    The Beretta M85 would be a better comparison as it is single stack. The Beretta 84/85 series is superior to the Walther PP/PPK pistols. I have a Walther PP and a Beretta M85FS which I carry often. The Walther hasn't been out of my safe in years. The Beretta is one of the best .380's if not THE best out there.

    Congrats on the new Beretta you will not be disapointed. I use the same holster that fastcast uses above. I have purchased some so called better ones from DeSantis and Galco but i don't like them as well. Go figure

    That's what I like to see...a man who asks a "what's best" question, then 24 hours later, posts pictures of his find. I love the Beretta 84's looks, but I really have no use for one. Someday, maybe...congratulations!

    My wife is looking for a .380. She did not like the Walther at all. She ended up comparing the Browning BDA to the 84FS and has decided on the 84fs.
