Dragline,Stevelyn, they do have JHP rounds for 7.62x25. If you guys have heard these are ineffective in some way let me know, my minds not set in stone.
From what I've seen of the tokarev it is a (relatively) thin pistol that shouldn't be that hard or uncomfortable to conceal. It has 8+1 capacity and a round with some interesting qualities.
It's simple, so it should be easy to learn. I've heard repeated raves about it's accuracy, and I can practice with cheap surplus ammo. It seems like a step up from my j-frame in pretty much every way. The fact that I might be able to craft rounds effective against body armor if we see a bunch of copy cats from this guy is a bonus.
