I have handled them, but I personally just don't have much use for the plastic fantastics. I want that good ole solid feeling stainless steel. I have always loved the solid feel, pointability and shootability of the PPK, there just really aren't many like it! The Mauser HSC would be an acceptable alternative, though I'm more likely to end up with a Polish P64 in 9mm Mak just because of the price.
