Back in the early 70s I really wanted a PPK/s, but what I could afford was an Astra Constable in .380 (closely resembles the PPK/s) which I bought in 1975 for $140 at Wal-Mart in Arkansas. Was a nice concealed gun for many years, but is now eclipsed by the mini-9mm's. Shot well for 45 years, but last July on the range suffered a catastrophic failure of the safety and hammer. Had a devil of a time finding parts, but did find a company that makes parts for out of production guns. Now just waiting for the gunsmith to replace those two parts.
