I inherited a gun collection from my brother's estate. He had several brand new high quality rifles and handguns. I've taken most to a federal firearm licensed dealer to help market them.

I am going to keep at least one. I am on the fence about keeping a brand new Glock 19 9mm or a very nice almost new Walther PPK .380 cal.

I already have two CCW weapons in .38cal and 9mm. I'm a lifelong James Bond fan and lean a bit towards the little Walther.

Which would you keep?

Glock 19. It is the quintessential pistol - Sorry, James!

I mean, it sounds like you just want a range toy. You don't really NEED another gun. So, in that case, I'd keep the Walther. Glock 19s are fine firearms, I own one, shoot it regularly and have been nothing but pleased with the pistol's performance.

However, they're not neat, or sexy, or cool. They're just a functional, reliable firearm. When it comes to actual, practical use, the Glock is hands down a superior pistol, but it sounds like that's really not an issue for you.

Since the PPK is cooler, I'd probably keep it.

That said, the PPK is probably worth more (seriously, the prices Walther asks and gets for a 90 year old simple blowback gun are ABSURD), so if you need the money there's that.

Keep them both. The Glock is a better pistol but the Walther has more panache.

I would keep the PPK. A far classier device.

First and foremost, Sorry for you loss.

Sounds like your brother has a nice taste in Firearms.

Wow.......tough choice.
The Walther being a true classic, and the Glock a future classic.
If I were in your shoes, I’d keep both.

James Bond has moved on to H&K I believe. I would just keep them both. Glock for range, Walther behind bathroom toilet or in kitchen behind breadbox would be good or on top of fan in living room, or under dog dish in the pantry.
