    There isn't much of a practical use for one but I guess if you've got money for a range toy....

    Pretty much all my guns are range toys.
     
  4. I'd buy a .22 pistol if you're concerned with ammo prices. I agree with Soybomb that there's probably not much use for that Tokarev. You'll have more fun with a similar priced .22 pistol, use even cheaper ammo, it'll probably be more accurate, and I'm sure it'll be made better.

    I already have a Ruger MKI.
     
  6. Then shoot that. :dunno: Don't take this the wrong way, but I don't see the allure of a cheaply made communist pistol when there are plenty of better options available if you just want something economical to make holes in paper at a range.

    Do you have a service caliber handgun that you can shoot really really well?

    I'm hot and cold on the milsurps. Some of them are really neat fun guns but I think alot of times people just buy them because they're cheap and it comes at the expense of having quality pieces or more range time to develop skills.

    The 22 pistol is the only one I have, and part of the reason I like milsurps is the price and I just like old guns.
     
  9. Why not save up a little more then, and buy a decent used Glock or other semi-auto pistol of similar quality?

    Well for right now, I don't have much of a budget at all for guns so if I'm buying anything its going to be cheap.

    I'm with you all the way, like $100 more puts you in used glock or metal S&W land and thats well worth waiting a little bit for.

    http://www.summitgunbroker.com/1048200.html gets you a modern gun for less than $50 more.
     
  12. Save up then. If you save the $229 that you'd spend on this, it puts you $229 closer to something nicer. :hs:

    I don't think it's bad for just fun. But if you dont already have a handgun in a common cartridge, I'd do that first like the others suggested. Try to pick up a Sig P6. If you can find one, you wont pay much more than what that Tok costs. Or just do the standard used Glock route.

    I'd say spend $40 more for a Sig Sauer P6 from the same company if you dont have one already.
