Have to ask the question. Does anyone own and shoot Makarovs? I look at them as a .380 ACP alternative and all around fun pistol to shoot. Comes apart easy. Cheap, but well made for a Russkie gun. And carries concealed well as most mid bore small pistols. Bigger bullet than the .380 ACP.Easy to maintain and as accurate with the right ammo as any other pistol in the inventory. Have two Bulgarian Makarovs and bought them when prices were lower. Usually buy two of a type. If the first goes into evidence, another exact copy is ready to take the evidence gun's place. Not going to be caught unprotected if possible. All the controls are the same, so don't have to change the mind set or pistol operation.Makarovs come apart similar to Walther PPK or PPK/S series. Holsters by many makers are easy to find. Just enjoy them a lot.
