    They have CZ 9mm makorovs for sale for $180-220 right now, used but in great condition.
    Also have some CZ 7.62x25's running about $180 unissued, if I'm not mistaken.
    The older ones I've seen are a heavy hunk of steel, but they do appear to be very nicely machined. One of my buddies is nuts about makarovs.

    As far as I can tell they look well made.
    If they are anything like their modern counterparts, I'm guaranteed they are excellent.

    Right now makarovs are dirt cheap and plentiful.

    GOt a Russian made one and have shot an Arsenal (Bulgarian one) a bit. I love the target sights they slapped on some of them to beat the moronic GCA 68 import restrictions. THe ammo is much cheaper than the less powerful 380. I might have to get one of the CZ 83 jobs in the 9X18 too

    yeah I see your point. I tend to hang out with well educated gun people though. My 12 year old can pretty much ID just about any pistol that has had more than 100K copies made--of course he spends a few hours a week in a Gunshop/range and has been to about 50 gun shows by now. most of the 7.62X25 ammo tends to be corrosive IIRC. THere is a place about 18 minutes from me that carries lots of ammo-the wife goes up there at least once a month to save on shipping charges-its called AIM Surplus.

    yeah 20 minutes at most. I buy 95% of the 9mm and all of my rifle ammo from them these days. 45 and 38 and most shotgun stuff I reload

I own a baby eagle .40 and I absolutely LOVE that gun, it sounds like a .40, hits like a .40, but kicks like a .22, very accurate and repositioning for a second shot is a breeze.
    Not familiar with the baby eagle- tell me about it. I don't like shooting long guns because of the recoil and noise, but this one sounds like a maybe.
    The nice thing about the AK is its ability to put up with abuse and neglect and still work. Not a great gun, but highly reliable to work.

    Imo, every man (and some women) should own a hand gun, at least one rifle, and a shotgun. If I had to pick just one, it would probably be the shotgun.

    Pardon me, but what exactly are cop-killer bullets?

    For me it would be a P38 and a Mini 14. Handy and reliable.
