DEFENSIVE WEAPONS (Suitabilities)?
How does a "Makarov EG 9x18 pistol compare in the marketplace as a "Defensive weapon"?

For short range situations, what is considered
to be the most effective types of ammo to utilize?

The Makarov is a compact, well made, functional firearm.

This is always a matter of opinion, but I'd consider it on the lower end of the scale as far as defensive stopping power is concerned. Personally, I don't feel confident of anything less than .38 Special +P....and .45 is even better!

The Mak makes for a reliable CCW pistol if you like
something that is easily concealable and shoots
fairly well.

Personally I agree with X in that I prefer S&W Mod 60
with +P+ ammo in summer time, I'd rather my 45 year
round but concealability is too difficult in summer and
uncomfortable too, but a Mak is a fine CCW and I would
not feel insecure if I chose to carry one for self defense
