Not looking for fun. looking for functionality, but I appreciate the input anyway!
Well here is an actual article that shows a test of 7.62x25 , 9mm and .45 ACP and a 357 Magnum being fired into a kevlar helmet.
BOX o Truth Test
The 7.62x25 is the only one that penetrated. how's that for functionality?
I have all sorts of toys , I have a Walther PPKS in 380 that I got from my father when he was on the job. (It was his ankle gun)
I still have my 1st Glock (G19 in 9mm) , I bought Back my G23 when I left my last Job. (.40) , I'm currently trying to sell my Glock 30 (.45)
The reason I said the CZ-52 was Fun is because I look at my other guns as "Tools" and the 7.62x25 was sort of a novelty to me. If you would take a
moment and research the info I'm giving you , you may see that it could be a worthy "Tool" for you. It's cheap , ammo is cheap and it's a proven
to penetrate , and handles fairly easy. I'm damn sure I know more about firearms than you , but my knowledge is limited to modern firearms. I was so
sure that I knew everything that my ego made me lose $100 to a buddy. When someone brings something to your attention , instead of dismissing it. Take
a second and read it. I already have all the guns I need for 2 lifetimes (except for that CZ-52)...lol I'm not typing this for my health , I'm
typing this because I thought it could be of benefit to you. Good Luck and I Hope you pick the right tool for the job.
I do appreciate the advice. But I have looked at Makarovs. I am not interested in them, mostly because of their ammo. I was not dismissing you.
As for you being 'damn sure you know more than me" about firearms, well, thats why I am asking for advice. But I HAVE done my research, and have
narrowed it down to certain things that I know would work for me. Which is, again, why I ask about those specific things.
I never claimed I knew more than anyone(in fact, i said the opposite). But it does get a little frustrating, when I ask about specific things, and the
thread then gets overrun with 'well, you should just buy a .45" comments.
I dont have the experience, but I certainly HAVE done the research. Its not about ego, its about wanting to get the right piece for ME, not the one
that is biggewst and baddest, or coolest.
As you said, I am looking for a tool. When someone is looking for a flat head screw driver, trying to convince them that a nail gun is what they need
isnt really productive.
