Yeah see if it was for me, I'd just get the Makarov.
The problem I have though is that I can't find anyone that actually sells them locally. I'd have to buy one from AIM surplus and get a transfer, and that leads me to consider other things instead.
Does anyone know if there's a good defensive factory catridge for the Makarov 9x18 caliber?
And aren't Llama-Bersa the same thing, kind of like Rossi-Taurus?
