    Picked up two new to me handguns today. Both Makarovs, the first being a bulgarian makarov and the second is a still new in the box Norinco type 59.
    got the norinco for $300 and the bulgy for $200 due to holster wear.
    Both are chambered in 9x18 mak. Fired the bulgy today and it surprised me as it was "snappy". However reviews are that ppl love these guns and some ppl even carry them

    Ahhh Makarov! Great underrated handguns manufactured in Soviet bloc countries, fires every time with the 9x18 Makarov round. Some were Soviet Bakail models in .380 and will fire +p 380 without worry. These are some of my favorite things! jb

    I just recently got rid of all my 9x18 pistols. Cool round, but I never shot it...

    Makarov's seem to multiply - LOL!
    Got an unissued, hand picked and cleaned Bulgy from TopGunSupply.
    Shot it and fell in love.
    Immediately bought a second and then they sold out (what a surprise - LOL).
    Finally found a third, unissued but covered in cosmoline, that's being cleaned.
    Guess felt recoil is a relative thing.
    As I feel mine is soft shooting even with Underwood +P.
    The accuracy is phenomenal.
    And yes, I sometimes carry one.
