    New from sunny Moscow, Russia

    Good day,
    May name is Stan. I'm from Moscow, Russia. I'm 33 years old, married, with kids.
    I'm new to Concealed Carry, just got my permit. Of course, due to the Russian gun law, it's a limited destruction handgun (in my case - it's Makarov pistol based handgun which can shoot .45 Rubber bullets only), so sorry for the try of joining real guns owners community, but here, in Russia, our government thinks that a handgun with rubber bullets and domestic bear will be just right for selfdefence.
    Anyways, I clearly understand that's defensive carry it's a multidimensional discipline and there is no way to learn it by myself alone. Of course, I can try it, but for sure it will be finished in the worst kind of way for me. That's why I'm here.

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    Actually its only sounds interesting:) Its looks like real Mak, but have weakened сonstruction and ''teeth' in the barrel.
    on my owned, I've changed all It's bejesus to the original Mak spare parts, add a Pearce Grip, Wolff Recoil springs on it's way, I hope I'll get it soon, but still It's got all original Mak problems + ammo cost's around 1USD for one cartridge (just to compare - Russian made 9X19 Luger cost from 40-60 cents, I use Glock17 for my IPSC training, It's OK in Russia to sport clubs to own such guns).
