I agree with Winchester 97, The makarov and the PA-63 are great guns and I love them both. I have shot the P3at, but don't like the trigger. Really small and fits pocket easy, but the trigger stops me from getting it. The 9x18 is big enough. At close range, shot placement is going to be the deciding factor in my opinion. 9x18,.380, 32acp and so on. Shot placement is the key.
Winchester 97, welcome to the forum
