... "with a delivery of a brick through a plate glass window". What movie was that from ? Dr. No, when he gets his Beretta taken away.
I learned, over the years, PPK, PPKS, and clones are unforgiving when held improperly as they bite ... HARD ! Also, will not tolerate limp-wristing.
I much prefer a compact 9mm or .357 Sig.
I'd take a S&W Model 39 any day of the week but that's probably just my background.
