Yup, it is compact but also just the right
size for me cuz I have small hands.

As for being Deadly well most are if you have to
use them. Which I hope I never have to.

Walter PPK. Often mentioned because of it's popularity in Thrillers and spy novels.

Well, that depends on the gun type. My opinion, as follows:
Assault rifle: Definately the Steyr AUG, but the Diemaco C7 is also quite good(even better than M16A2!), especially with fitted optics.
Submachine gun: H&K MP5's a great one, but there's nothing like a good ol' Thompson M1A1. Ever tried the FN P90? Light, compact, 50rd clip, great for close-combat! Dutch Special Forces use them.
Machine gun: At first, I would say the M60E3, but I'm particulary fond of the FN Minimi (or M249 SAW, is the same).
Sniper rifle: I've tried the L96A1. Great weapon, but has a recoil that kicks like a mule And of course the M40A3. For semi-auto freaks, there's only one true option: H&K PSG-1 (nice option on this weapons is, it can be equipped with a silencer)
Pistol: IMI Desert Eagle!!! Especially the .50AE! For guys with somewhat weaker wrists: Glock-17. Really light and very accurate.
Revolver: Don't have much use for those, because pistols have so many more advantages, but I really like the .454 Casull.
Shotgun: How 'bout the Ithaca-37?

My fave:

The FNC1 battle rifle.

Say, why are you laughing???

But seriously:

I think every soldier remembers his "first time". Mine was getting a 7.62 mm kick in my right cheekbone. It was love at first bruise.

Unlike the "new" C7, it rarely jammed, you didn't need to ration the oil you used in it, it didn't fall apart when you slapped it during present arms, and you got a bigger bicep toting it around.

lol, I stilllike my biathlon rifels. .22 caliber, and really light. Makes for great range practice!

WRT the FNC1, it's main disadvantage was its weight - about 12 lb fully loaded. As a radio operator, I found this actually to be an advantage. Once you got posted into a radio detachment, they took away your C1 and gave you a 9mm Sterling submachinegun.

Although I would prefer the firepower of the C1 (or fully-auto C2) in battle, I'd much rather schlep around the "Star Wars blaster" SMG while on exercise.

As for pistols, I only ever fired one: the 9mm Browning Hi-power. And I had no complaints. All the ones I fired were fairly accurate, all you needed were good elbows.

My only other exposure to weapons were the C7 (a Canajun knockoff of the M-16), the C8 (a carbine), the C6 (GPMG), the C9 (LMG) and the C5 (folding pocketknife).
