Hello, all. I am new to the forum and just wanted make a post about a new weapon I purchased. I picked up an FEG PA-63 from the gun show this weekend, and I couldn't be happier with it! I bought 100 rounds of Brown Bear 9x18 steel cased ammo with it and went to a friend's house with a big back yard to giver the new girl a thorough test. 93 problem-free rounds later, I am happy to report that I love this gun! (I saved one clip full, as an empty gun is just an expensive paper-weight, right?) There has been much debate over whether or not hollow points are necessary in this weapon. Detractors say the round won't fully expand, while defenders say they will, and that FMJ's are ineffective as a man-stopper. And, there has been several comments about hollow points do not feed well in this weapon. Does any one have anything they would like to add to this? In any account, I think I made a good choice. This gun is much easier for me to conceal than my Bersa 9mm mini-thunder. It not only slips into most of my bigger pocketed pants, but it also fits nicely in my waist-band with the holster I picked up for 12 bucks. I was between the FEG and the Bersa thunder .380. I think I made the better choice, considering the 60 dollar savings and the higher velocity of the Makarov round. And don't get me wrong... I LOVE my Bersa Mini thunder 9mm. It has never failed me with over 1000 rounds though the barrel. It is just too bulky for concealed carry. It has become my "house gun" and the FEG will travel with me when I can afford to acquire the CCW permit. So, what ammo do any of you suggest for self-defense in the FEG?
