Opinions? (Note:If this is in the wrong forum please move) I saw one in the AIM Surplus catalog. Is it a good gun? Not looking to buy but to gather info.

shameless bump.

ehhh..I think I'll go visit the Walther forum now.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 6:14:23 PM EDT
You posted three times in four hours. Give folks some time, maybe no one that had visited the forum has had experience with the gun you were talking about.

No problem.

I'm aware of how the tech forums work...they take longer than GD.

Repentance comes in the form of READING, not POSTING.

Kel-Tec makes the P32.

Easy there, big fella. Not_A_Llama is correct. The firearm you are asking about is a "PP 32". "PP" is short for "Polizei Pistole". Even the Aim Surplus catalog lists it that way. Bud.
Here is a review from American Rifleman to chew on until the forum catches up with you.

My bad. But in your review it lists it as a "Walther." So which is it?
Link Posted: 12/18/2005 3:21:17 PM EDT
If in fact it is a Walther P-38 9mm, allow me to say thumbs-up. Most likely it's a former east bloc communist import with an alloy frame. These are nice little shooters. Mags are fairly cheap & they make a nice little plinker.

What is a Plinker? Is it used for "plinking?" What is plinking?

Never say that! You are NOT bad. You are Llama's little sweetheart, and don't you ever let anyone else say that to you.

Let me explain for you.

You didn't read the AIM Surplus site right. I can sympathize, though, since it's not like the term "PP32" is written across the top in prominant 20+ point font, like it is. Instead of writing the CORRECT model number, PP32, you wrote P32. PP32 is not the same as P32. The first one is missing one of the letter "P"; the sixteenth letter of the alphabet, prominantly featured in Cookie Monster's helpful "Letter of the Day" segment.

The only company that I know of on the market making a gun called the "P32" is Kel-tec. Kel-tec is not the same company as Walther. You can tell, because "Kel-tec" starts with the letter "k" (kay), and "Walther" starts with the letter "W" (dubble-yew). It's not your fault, though. They both have the same number of letters in their name.

Walther makes the PP32. When writing an article about one particular model of a device, people often refer to that device by its manufacturer. In an article about the Ford Pinto, a writer might say "The Ford" as a roundabout way of referring to the Pinto itself. A writer might also refer to "Elmer's Washable School Paste (Non-Toxic!)" as "The Elmer's", and so on.

"Plinking" is a very complex and difficult word to master, so I can relate. I have heard that putting the word in at some place like www.google.com, and pressing enter will cause kind dwarves that live on the intarwebs to tell you the answer! When I asked them today, they said a lot of things, but mentioned a lot of things about target shooting informally (informally means something is not serious)

Best of luck, from your bestest pal in the whole wide world,

Not_A_Llama

Not at all, when you can elicit responses such as N_A_L's.

Since these are the technical forums, you might want to ask some technical questions, rather than solicit people's subjective opinions.

Is it a good gun? Walther's are usually well made and reliable.

But what would you want it for? It would be a very good chioce for some people and a very bad choice for others, depending on their needs.

Do you need help defining your needs?

No.
I appreciate your opinion and it's duly noted.

Yes, I am trying to get more into the tech forums.

What do you mean by good gun? Good for what?

If you are starting with handguns start with a 22. Loads of good new and used ones are out there. Ruger Mk2, Buckmark, SW 422, other revolvers.

32 is ok, depends. Costs a lot to shoot, not very good for CCW but better then nothing, not a starter gun, and others.

DJ, get yourself a .22 as a first gun.

Simple, cheep to shoot which means you can practice more and you have much less of a chance of killing yourself if you have an accident.

I reccomend a used Ruger Mark II, III. You can pick one up for a couple hundred bucks.

Very accurate and a great starter gun to get used to.

(Not trying to start sh*t but I want to make a point)

If you cannot contribute to a technical forum thread without making a rude remark towards a fellow remember, then you should abstain from making said remarks.

I would like to thank you all for the opinions said about the Walther. If it's a uncomfortable gun that is expensive to feed, I think I'll pass.

1shott and Murdoc, technical forums, are obviously not about who got "owned".

strangleonthedangle, I will have to check up on the Ruger forums about the Mark I and Mark II.

Get a silencer, and you're well on your way to your career as an assassin, Mr. 47.

Seriously, I second strangle on this one. It will also be more fun to shoot because you will likely be "better" with it. IMHO, you won't be able to really enjoy shooting anything bigger until you're at least a decent shot with a .22 anyway.

Moving away from handgun talk for a second, I've got a buddy who *easily* has more than $10k worth of bolt guns. Last time he was back in Texas, we headed out to the range. All I took with me was my lever-action .22, because he had all the real hardware (and because he doesn't own a .22). Some of his optics (sights) are worth more than I am.

Anyway, my buddy shot his own guns for a while; eventually asked to shoot mine. Asshole wouldn't give it back. He looked like a fucking 8-year old out there with his first Chipmunk gun, he was so dumb and happy. I didn't mind; I got to play with some guns n' glass I'll never be able to afford.

He told me that, while he always has fun at the range, he could not remember the last time he'd had that much fun. Prolly had more to do with it being lever-action (and "only" having iron sights) than anything........
