Hey All, A friend of mine is willing to sell his two tone PA-63 Makarov for $200. I like the gun, I can shoot it well, and the price seems reasonable(it comes with the original leather holster and 3-7rd clips). I'd like to carry it in Tennesse when I turn 21 and can legally do so. I have a few questions about it, though. 1. Is there a "better" CCW for under/around $250? I think this is pretty much the smallest caliber that I want to carry. Any good, small, semi-auto or revolver would be fine. I could certainly live with a nice .38 spcl or .357 snubby-loaded with .38 spcl, if they were as accurate as the mak. By the way, I can hit 6" plates out to about 40 yds. with the mak. NOTE: Please don't any of the 1911 people chime in and harp about the superiority of thier ultra compact 1911. Those guns are too thick through the grips and my relatively small hand can't reach the slide release without turning the gun completely sideways. The same goes for the glocks. 2. Does anyone know what the best (most reliable) ammo is for the Makarov? Silver Bear seems to work okay, but the wolf stuff jams constantly. 3. What would be the ideal holster for this gun? I'm pretty short-5'6" -and closer to thick than thin, so I was thinking either small-of-the-back or ankle. 4. The gun seems to torque back or pinwheel significantly. Is there anything I can do to combat this, i.e. weight, grips or my hold on the gun? Thanks for any feedback you might have. Also, if you have any opinions/feedback on this gun or one similar in purpose, feel free to share. Later.
