Dude! I would never have noticed that. Thought it was a 22 pistol like a Hi-Standard.

"One time I walked over to my cousin Bobby’s house holding that gun in my hand the entire way (Bobby lived a mile away from where I did, back in New Jersey). Imagine that…a young teenager like me walking down the road for a mile holding a pistol in his hand. If a kid in New Jersey tried that today, they’d call out half a dozen SWAT teams and maybe even the National Guard. Back then, it was a normal thing to do, and nobody got their shorts in a knot over it."

You gotta read the article:
When the Bond franchise was just getting started, the movie folks scheduled a photo shoot in which Bond was supposed to pose with his iconic Walther PPk, the signature secret agent .32 ACP automatic Ian Fleming wrote about. The only problem was that whoever organized the photo shoot had all the props except, you guessed it, the Walther PPk.

As it turns out, the photographer (a lensmaster named David Hurn) was a pellet gun target shooting enthusiast (me, too, but I’ll get to that in a bit). His target pistol of choice was, you guessed it again, the Walther LP53. The LP53 is a physically large pistol, and it’s a high class, high-ticket item. Real steel, deep blueing, and all the good stuff that makes old guys like me get all dewey-eyed. Hurn ran out to his car and came back with the LP53, and the rest, as they say, is history. Much of the public is completely unaware that their hero, silver screen idol James Bond, posed with a pellet gun.

Really good read. What really got me were the parts about walking to Bobby's house a mile with the firearm in hand and shooting the can upright, both really got me. Thanks for posting.

I always chuckle at the "7.65 mil. With a delivery like a brick through a plate glass window."

Yes, because when I think stopping power, I think .32 ACP. *laughs*

Well, if you think about it, a brick would lose a lot of velocity after traveling through a plate glass window...so he's kind of correct. LOL.

Allegedly Bernard Lee who played "M" supplied his own PPK for the scene when Bond was issued the PPK. The propmaster didn't have a PPK available so Mr. Lee used his own. The PPK then went to a friend for some favors and later was ALMOST up for auction. The auction house wanted more documentation before stating this was the original PPK.
