I ask because a few years back a retired FBI guy had told me he considered the PPK the "BEST" overall CCW pistol in his opinion. He was an older dude so I took it with the proverbial "grain of salt" but I did get the impression he knew of what he spoke. I've handled a PPK and didn't care for the mile or so trigger pull? I suppose though if you are accustom to it it's something that can be adjusted to...
...shot placement is the key.
I have 2 Bersa Thunders .380's... ...I have carried one in my car and the other in my closet.... each one has over 600 rounds thru them; and they are very dependable... breakin was about 100 rounds shot wet... have never owned a PPK so don't know about the differences...

Sorry that this is document is in Spanish, but if you can follow it through, page 15 begins a very detailed, and adamant refutation of that belief. The pistol developed over many years and several iterations, taking into account user requests, improved functionality, superior manufacturing techniques...and so on. You get a good feeling for the Argentine pride in the side by side comparison of the two firearms. Having said that, the major influence in the development of Bersa pistols was Beretta, where Don Hercules (the ER in Bersa) worked before immigrating to Argentina.
