Thanks for the tip, that is close to what I want. I may get a hammerless revolver or something of that nature. What caliber is that little guy?

I'd say get whatever gun and holster is most comfortable for you, and practice like crazy. Get real familiar with your set-up.

I should just warn you SKS that those are not actually makarovs. I believe they were saying that when makarovs were harder to come by, so that would make people happy. dont quote me though. Im sure that is just as reliable, however

Being that whatever I get is going to be my carry gun IT HAS TO PERFORM FLAWLESSLY! I will be trusting my life with it and it better not fall apart after a few time at the range. I have seen a lot of .380s crack into pieces. Maybe I should step up and get a revolver or an XD-40 sub compact? Unfortunatley, I only have enough for a cheapy right now, 100-200 range so I want to get the best I can with that money.

I dont think it is actually a 'Makarov'. I would personally go with the one i showed you, because it has all those extras and is an original makarov. Like i said though, i dont know, but im sure that will function just as good. It is smaller so it might be more comfortable in a pocket

I just found out that the biggest importer of Russian pistols is here in Tucson. I am going to have to look into that!

that is disconcerning! I will stick with a revolver or a different semi-auto.

FWIW, the owners (husband and wife) of one range that I go to, BOTH carry maks when in "civilian" mode. They like the size and handling and both use Glaser ammo. I'm not trying to discount any previous posts, just posting what I have heard from associates. BTW, if you look at the General Rifle forum, you'll find some guys claming that SKS's are the worst rifles they ever owned!

I have decided on the .38 special snub nose hammerless Taurus.

Sounds like a good choice to me. I wish you the best as you familiarize yourself with and carry your new gun.
