    Finally get to pick up my PPS 43 on Saturday from the FFL dealer. I ordered it eight months ago and they were very back logged, small American company doing semi-auto conversions on submachineguns as well as manufacturing their own pistols.
    WWII Russian, 7.62x25, 32 round mags, folding stock welded in place making it a BATF legal "pistol".

    Are you sure its russian? I think alot of those parts kits out there are Polish

    Anyways nice "pistol" Was thinking of building one myself but would want the stock and the original barrel thus making me go through the red tape of owning one. No thanks!

    When I was travelling in the Kashmir area for awhile I used to carry a Ppsh-41, mean little bastard! I loved it, a tad heavy though. I finally traded it for a fixed stock AK47.

    Heavy yes, but I love the recoil, straight back, not up. Did you have the 80 round drum?
    This one has the 32 round banana mags and a much slower rate of fire (class 3) but is light and extremely easy to maintain. Push a button on the back and the upper and lower swing open just behind the barrel, it's one of the Russian weapons you can drop in the mud, kick around, pick it up and start firing again and never miss a beat.

    If you mean the 71 round drum, yes I had two of them. Plus one stick mag.

    Mmmm, no, not really. Just a fun little machine to play with. Remember the biggest mass murder I know of (other than terrorist bombings) was the asshole who burned 70+ people to death in New York I think it was with a gallon of gas. It's not the tool, it's the person.

    Didn't some guy go crazy with a Samurai sword in Japan and kill a bunch of people awhile back?

    On I side note I remember seeing a story about england wanting citizens to turn in their knives to a drop off point. :cuckoo:

    Yes you can watch the jail and prison reality shows and see the violent felons repeatedly let out to prey on society, I was watching the NATGEO program Hardtime and one prick they had on has killed 5 people including a cop! He keeps getting released! It is the person, not the implement! These libs need to finally realise that some are never to be released out into society, they are broken and can never be fixed.

    My mistake, 71 round drums. I have a couple of friends that own class 3 PPSHs which is why I am (somewhat) familiar with them.
