andy said:if a load aint going to be a LOT more powerful than a .22, why pay more than 2c a shot for the ammo, hmm? why not at LEAST get a 9x19, and pay 11c a shot, since a Kahr is 6" long, 15 ozs? Sheesh, that's smaller and no more wt than an airwt Chief's .38. If you can't spare the room to carry THAT, you are really lost.
He's ranting against the Makarov.
JD lacks too much knowledge about ballistics to understand that just calculating energy numbers isn't everything. Nor does he understand that the Makarov has been known for killing people in real fights.
He's also rationalizing it out for being too cheap to buy centerfire ammo for practice.
