Ulysses Everett McGill:

Baby Face Nelson asks whether Ulysses, Pete, and Delmar know their way around a Walther PPK. While the PPK was produced in Germany starting in 1929, it didn't gain a market in the US until after WWII, and sales only really took off after the introduction of the James Bond movies in 1962. Bank robbers of the 1920s and '30s generally preferred American-made pistols, like the Browning 1903 or the Colt 1911.
