First Impressions: Walther's New PD380 Pistol

Engineered to offer an elevated concealed carry experience enhanced by the famous Walther precision, reliability and unmatched craftsmanship.

posted on November 6, 2023

Today, we've learned that Walther Arms' latest evolution in concealed-carry handguns, the Walther PD380, is about to hit the market. As NRA Family readers know, CCW handguns always represent a trade-off between concealability (which demands a very compact firearm chambered in a relatively hard-hitting caliber) and shootability (which requires that recoil not be terribly punishing). The PD380 was engineered to offer an elevated concealed carry experience enhanced by the famous Walther precision, reliability and unmatched craftsmanship.

Whether you're a seasoned expert or new to guns, the Walther PD380 was created to make your life as a concealed carrier easier. The .380 ACP chambering is the softest-shooting caliber that's widely considered effective for self-defense. Industry standard sights ensure precise aiming, while an ambidextrous paddle magazine release and slide-mounted safety ensure that hand dominance won't affect your shooting experience.

This double action/single action offers you the option to carry with the hammer down while still allowing for rapid follow-up shots. Speaking of, the magazine has a 9-round capacity, so with one in the chamber, you have up to 10 shots. 

“Comfort, reliability, and confidence is at the forefront when you’re carrying, which is exactly what the PD380 was designed for. It embodies the perfect fusion of power, elegance, and ease,” said Jens Krogh, vice president of marketing and product development for Walther Arms, Inc. “Whether it’s holstered on your person, in a bag or in a purse, the compact dimensions provide a balance in comfort and concealability, making it an excellent choice for anyone seeking a reliable, high-performance pistol that doesn't compromise personal protection.” MSRP $449;
