Walther PP style pistols are designed to be carried with a round in the chamber. And the double action on my P64 is so stiff it’s pretty much impossible to fire it by accident.

How do you like the P64?

I keep eyeballing them on dealer websites.

I just got a Bulgarian Makarov and absolutely love it. I figure that since I'm already buying 9x18, I might as well check into some of the other Iron Curtain pistols chambered for the round.

I changed the springs in my P64 to lighten up the double action after my wife complained. Even so when the P64’s safety is on, which also de-cocks the hammer and disconnects the trigger, I feel just as safe with a cartridge in the chamber as I do when carrying a loaded revolver.
