IMHO, Walther makes a expensive, overly heavy out of dated firearm in a ppk. It was in its time a fine example of a firearm. But its time is way past.
Like the German Luger, the Walther has a mystic quality about it. James Bond carried one.But, much more can be had cheaper and as good a quality, especially in a 380.
Ruger, Kel Tec, make a modern, lite weight 380. Easy to conceal, reliable firearm, as well as many others. It is not the best "target gun". In this day age, the shells are rather expensive and it likes much as a hunting gun.
You say, you have other guns. A Walther would make a nice, but expensive, addition to a shoot little, but admire piece. Of course, as always IMHO only.
As interesting reading, Jeff Cooper had published a soft cover magazine covering cartridges and hand guns than remains today a definitive work. If you can find one. Most questions one can think of regarding handguns are covered. And fascinating reading.
