arov can do at 10 ft, and MANY "think" that a mak has the ability to stop a man, at axeswing ranges. :) This of course assumes a proper load in the 223, vs ANY load you can fire out of a Mak, without blowing it apart, that is.

stuepe, an 11 inch CAR may have more ft/lb that a 9x18 at 500 yards but the .22 ice-pick wound you get at that range makes the CAR worthless. All you are going to do is piss someone off. The Mak will still have a full 9mm hole and a blunt hollowpoint and thus use it's power much more effenciently that a pos CAR.

Add to that the short sight radious of the CAR and about all you have is a 500 yard noise maker. Even the GIs with M4s try not to make those kind of shots. That is what sharpshooters with M-14s are for!

OH!! GOODY!! SUMMER RE-RUNS....:eek: Uh;I'd say we've seen this movie.WTF;rifle caliber vs.medium pocket rocket....anypne really take this discussion seriously??If your down to a pistol and the @sshole in question is bracketing you with ANY decent rifle over 100meters,nevermind 500,you're definitely knee-deep in $hit&about to hit the fan with it...never mind slinging the same fecal matter with the scoped-canned CAR15 with the .22lr conversion in the de-barked Chihuaua drawn assault wheelbarrel....:rolleyes: did I miss anything else?Oh yeah! a moral,firends don't let their friends piss off a rifleman with naught but a pistol outside of the operating envelope....Oh srew it,drink up everyone:beer: :cool: :D

Stupe, an assault wheelbarrow isn't 'tactics'. It's a stupid idea by a lame bozo. That would be YOUR stupid idea, gunkid.

Remember 'it is what it is,and it ain't what it ain't"..?What a Makarov is ;is a reliable little brute,that's just small enough to carry easily,big enough to shoot reasonably well(better with practice and the odd tweak)and priced that most folks who shoot could have a few should they want one.With the right ammo it beats throwing hard looks at'em.It's NOT an earth shaker,nor is it an "11 inch CAR";its more like a poor man's Kahr.
Is there better tools for the old kit?Is it the worst choice out there?Nope...I'm not gonna do the old reflexive @sshole -like behavior that someone here does when he disagrees with someone's choice.Unless that choice is "out there"to the point of being downright dangerous or careless;and then I'd rather suggest a better course.Neither would I want to be skylined and caught unawares by a skilled operator using either of these two items within their useful envelope.Personally,I like the Maks I've shot,especially some of the ones that had a little aftermarket work(trigger,sights&sometimes barrel/muzzle crown).For stockers,the East German ones were pretty damn good.Preference in a handgun?I'd still go with a service caliber auto or recolver with a 5 inch tube,but the Mak is nothing to throw away if you have one,or get in front of if you don't.
