The 47 women who participated in the 5th Annual Ladies Pistol Project were unaware that they were among the first to handle and fire the just-announced Walther Arms PD380 pistol, a compact .380 ACP pistol designed for seasoned experts or beginners alike. How did the firearm rank among the 9 other .380-caliber models the women fired? Results will be announced soon on this site, but Walther clearly has the women's concealed-carry market in its sights.

“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.”

At the heart of the PD380 lies the renowned Walther engineering, offering comfort in design plus compatibility for concealment and confidence building. By granting shooters the ability to embrace every shot, free from concerns about high recoil, it ensures each moment on the range or in the field becomes an ideal experience.
