I just recently bought one. My SIL says it's the best $500 gun that you can buy for $200. Actually it does seem to be a good gun, and it shoots good too. Ammunition isn't a problem to get, you just have to check around. I don't have the ballistics in front of me but I've always heard the 9mmMakarov is more than a .380 but less than "our" 9mm?
I've got plenty (too many) carry guns, but I'd CC this gun if I needed to.
