I recently just purchased my first Makarov after registering for my CHL here in Texas on a whim.

I bought it off of gunbroker and awaiting it's arrival (pictures, which will surely bore you, soon) from what I know it's a Bulgarian Circle 10 made in 1979, that I picked up for just under 300 bucks shipped. Came with 2 magazines (and the +2 extenders), loading tool and holster.

This is my first owned handgun, I have shot plenty of other ones before but I remember always liking the Makarov my buddy had. So I got one for myself...5 years later. Can't wait to start poking holes in paper.

About me, I am in the Air Force and I am a loadmaster on C-130s.

Thanks
Adam

A very warm welcome as well. And, we're honored to have you on board.

Once you start shooting your Bulgie and realize that you have a $300 gun that shoots like, if not better, than a $600 gun...that 5-year wait will be well worth it.

Consider yourself warned.
Do not going any where that might have another Makarov for sell, they will follow you home. :) It can be an obsession.
I've also learned recently that, my wife can actually tell one of them from another too, dang.
Enjoy! They are really fun little guns.

Welcome Mister!

Hey Adam, it is good to hear you are picking up a "True" Makarov for your first gun. I too got my first hand gun that was a Makarov Circle 10 Bulgie. He has had plenty of company in the gun cabinet since that first one came into my abode. I love them and I know you won't be satisfied with just one. Very user-friendly and typically very accurate for such a small package. Enjoy, and I can speak for others here that we will not be bored with any pics you share of your new friend. :)
