Not the most scientific of tests


But you do get the idea:

Not bad, not bad at all.

    I don’t that all that much about guns. I like that one though! I just have my little 25 acp. It fits nicely in the hidden pocket in my purse.

    Far better than nothing. FAR! Look into some good defensive ammo though.

    The .25 ACP isn’t anyone’s idea of a manstopper, BUT, it is still lethal and I can tell you from personal experience that bad guys will back up and leave when confronted by one. They just don’t want to get shot, period.

    Dump the magazine from a .25 ACP into a guy’s face and the argument is over. Practice with it until you can do that consistently. Remember you’re unlikely to be shooting more than 10 feet away, so being good at close, rapid fire, point aiming is more important than your group size at 25 yards.

    Moving on to the .380, its’ ballistics are virtually identical to the 9mm Makarov. One thing I always respected about the Soviets is that their weaponry was always functional and fully capable of doing what needed to be done. Frankly you’re just not giving up much with a .380 class round.

    I’m 5’11” and weigh 160 pounds. That means I have trouble concealing a pack of matches. While my all time favorite pistol round is .45 ACP, concealing a 1911 is a near impossibility for me. That leaves the smaller stuff like .25 ACP and .380/9mm Mak. I just don’t worry about it a lot.

    I would LOVE to buy a larger CAL. The first time he got into office, I had a 9mm at Texas Dollar Pawn..
    My daughter came home from college without letting me know. She came in my bedroom; while I was sleeping in the middle of the night. I almost shot her! I sold it.
    Then when Obama got into office, the prices had gone sky high. I couldn’t and can’t afford to buy another…so I got the little 25 cal acp.

    Delight yourself, and look at all of the beautiful guns at Texas Dollar Pawn….although, the guns were flying off of the shelves; and it is no longer a pawn shop. Take a look at this:

    LOL…..Thiis place looks like an arsenal.

    The thing about used guns is that everybody bought them all! Now we’re forced, forced I say, to buy new because everybody that has one is bitterly clinging onto them! Oh, the humanity!

    You bet we are clinging to them!

    Not to mention, those surplus Makarovs aren’t horribly expensive. Had one, liked it, gifted it to a “son” because he moved to an area I wasn’t real comfortable with and I wanted him to take something with him.

    I worked for the City of Dallas the year Affirmative Action went into play. There were threats againsr white women even though in a Dept. of 54 people…only a handful of us were white. They had all of the jobs so??? Why were all of the White women threatened.

    My Dad bought me a 9 mm and gave me a purse with a secret compartment in the seam of the purse. I worked late nights. At first I’d park in the normal parking lot….until all 4 tires on my car were slit 3 times.

    So? I started parking In BACK of city hall where it was very dark; and no lights. I’d stick my hand in the seam of the purse as I walked to the car. I could shoot thru the purse IF I had to.

    There were no newspaper articles of threats against white women. There were no news reports on any of the TV channels.

    I worked very hard. The Mayor of Dallas took note of me due to my work for The Director of Planning and Development for the Ciy of Dallas. I knew him so well, I coulo practially read his mind what he wanted next before he even thought it LOL.

    The Mayor contacted me to come to work for her. The world got around. I was walking towards a major filing cabinet next the the stairwell when a large Black Woman jerked me off in the tairwell and slammed me up against a brick wall…banging my head. She had me pinned poking her double acrylic fingernail between my eyes, “NOT” to apply for the Mayor’s office. You understand. She didn’t want the job. She didn’t want a white woman to have the hob.

    I had already learned to keep a hand-held recorder in my suit pocket. So? I got every word on tape. I handed it over to personnel. Do you know wha they did? TWO HOURS OF COUNSELING. THAT WAS IT!! TWO BLOODY HOURS!!

    The police dept. heard about it, and offered me a job with them. I went!! I then trained 6 Black women how to do background checks on potential police officers. It wa a nighmare.

    I will get back to you tomorrow…wait a minute. It is tomorrow. I will get back with you laer today when I get a little sleep.
