Makarov Menu Bar

The 2002 Postal Match Results


The second annual postal match drew 17 entries, all but one of which were shot with actual Makarovs (one PA-63).  Stock Makarovs accounted for all but one of the Makarovs with one customized Makarov making up the balance.  Nobody decided to use the CO2 Makarov.

The most popular ammunition was Seller & Belliot 95 gr FMJ, (75% of entries using factory ammo)

Overall scoring was based on the sum of the 1 slow fire and 2 rapid fire targets. A perfect score would have been 200 (a total of 40 shots, 5 points possible per shot).  Scores ranged from 0 to an impressive 199.

Good shooting, guys! (No gals entered...once again, where are ya?)

Many thanks to all who participated, to those who donated prizes, and to George for getting the scoring together quickly.
