    What do you guys think of this thing? Comes in either .223 or 7.62x39
    Going for $500 at buds right now and has great reviews. Some pretty sweet videos on YouTube as well. I've handled this at my lgs and it felt pretty solid. Let me know what you think!

    I've just never tried one, and can't think of anyone that I know has one.

    The Zastava PAPs have a good rep. How do you go about shooting this one? I'm having a problem visualizing stance and hold.

    You can rapid fire from the hip, or hold it out in front and use the sights. I like this thing, just can't seem to find the point of it.......?

    They call that a pistol? Sheesh I wonder what the holster would look like? Looks like an awesome gun though and sort of surprised only $500.

    It has an under folding metal stock...which is how I usually shoot it...but it can be fired as pictured...with more forearm to hold onto than the PAP.

    It's really a close range weapon, but can be accurate out to 100 yards if you know the trajectory of the bullet you are firing...
