Help me out

I am buying a new pistol this weekend hopefully and I wanna know what you guys think I should buy. I have narrowed it down to three choices" Ruger LCP, Bersa Thunder or Walther PPK.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses

Ruger,
I really like this little gun, very concealable,very accurate for a small gun,not to mention cheaper than the walther.Taking nothing away from them they make great guns,if I went ppk i would want the german made gun though.
Also know that ruger has a recall on the lcp if the serial number starts with 700 it is recalled and can be sent back to ruger free of charge for a new hammer mechanism,last shot fired slide holds open an them when you get them back too. ooh and they throw in a new finger rest mag for you too.
If the derial number starts with 701 the gun is new issue after the changes and does not need sent back.

Never

never handled the ruger, but have carried a ppk for years as a back up. highly recommed it. I agree German made is better to me, theres just something not right about a ppk with smith and wesson on the side.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the input guys. I went with the Bersa as I have shot it before and enjoyed it, I shot a PPK last week and enjoyed it, but I felt like it was going to cut my hand every time I pulled the trigger and I decided against the Ruger for a few reasons, the biggest of which is that it fails the drop test, granted there is little chance of me dropping it but I would rather not have that type of risk on my hands should I ever, though it is a nice looking gun and I may buy one if they work that bug out of it. But thanks for the input!

I have an Interarms PPKS that is extremely unreliable. I'm told that they are poor quality across the board, but later models are much improved. True?
