Well, actually, the dealer has placed a two-day hold on them for me, which took just a couple of minutes. It was so busy inside the gun store, that I could not examine the Walthers until shortly before closing, after waiting for over half an hour; typical Saturday madness, of late. I live near the dealer, so I will go back on Monday or Tuesday, when it should be more peaceful, and conduct the transaction(s) in un-rushed peace. I may buy one, and layaway the other, or might layaway both, to make for just one transfer after an anticipated check arrives and clears in the near future. One thing, for certain, is that these newer S&W Walthers have smooth DA and SA trigger pulls. The serial number engraving looks like crap. Ah, well, these will be working tools, carried concealed, not jewelry. Why these older Walther designs, as carry guns? Well, my wife favors her German PP for carry, and having shot it, myself, I know the PP/PPK design is a good pointer in my hands. (I do believe in using the sights, whenever possible, but a handgun that points well helps me get on-target quicker.) As my right wrist deteriorates, and my right shoulder might require some structural work in the future, I am leaning more toward guns that work well in my left hand, and shoot well for me without the aid of a support hand. The PP/PPK is a good one-handed lefty gun for me; all else being equal, I tend to shoot DA/SA pistols better in lefty mode, and DAO better in rightie mode. Also, my wife is not the best at toting spare magazines, so I can tote mags for both of us. Moreover, there are places that she cannot carry under the provisions of a Texas CHL, but I can carry on my badge, under the provisions of the LEOSA; in an emergency, she could arm herself with a familiar weapon I am carrying. In case anyone is wondering, no, I have not yet seen the newest James Bond movie. I have no immediate plans to abandon my carry of heavier ordnance, nor my tendency to carry multiple handguns; when toting a Walther or two, I am likely to continue to have a .357 or .45 on or about my person.
