So, I hab a further competition last saturday.

Good day at the range, lot of fun and due to high temperatures very exausting.

Came in with 269 from 300. Not as good as last year with the Beretta 82, but not bad either.

The left target is at 15m 10 rounds in 100 seconds. Should have taken more time to shoot, but I was exausted.

The right target is at 10m and 7m. Each 10 rounds.

10m five intervals of each 2 seconds and one shot. And then repeat
7m five rounds in intervals. Three intervals of 2 seconds each where a max of 2 shots are fired.

Shot ma PK380 at the German nationals and she did fine.

But the trigger was getting me off, so I took her to my gunsmith who took care of that.

He reduced the triggerpull in SA to approx. 1250gramms.

Can't wait to give her a run at the range

What type of competition are you shooting that has a division where the PK380 makes sense? In my experience, most competitions are either rimfire or "real" (9mm and larger) calibers, with nothing really existing in the middle for things like .32 ACP and .380.

I was young and needed the money.....;-)

Just kidding!

We have a competition called PP4 (Police Pistol 4 - Pocket Gun). We can use pistols that fit in a box measuring 180 x 140 x 40mm so we are talking about 3" to 3,5" pistols.


We start at 15m, then 10m and finally 7m

We can use calibers from .32 up to .455 and taking that the .380 or .32 Auto has a fairly light recoil, it`s a nice caliber to use.

So it's like medium- to short-range bullseye with a fairly generous time limit? (I'm used to USPSA/IPSC where your score is points shot divided by the time it took you to shoot, so it looked like everything was going in slow motion to me.) Are you actually required to lower the gun between shots, or is that just your personal routine? Also, those are some seriously wacky looking targets. Is there a reason for the swirls of black and white printed on them?

When shooting the intervalls we have to lower the firearm to 45°.

The targets used are the center of a humanoid target.
Full human like targets ar illegal in germany.

The routine is:

at 15m 10 shots in 100 seconds including a mandatory reload

at 10m 2 x 5 shots in intervals. Five intervals of each 2 seconds, whre one shot is to be fired

at 7m 2 x 5 shots in intervals. Three intervals of each 2 seconds, where max. 2 shots are placed. That means you can choose for 2-2-1 / 1-2-2 / 1-2-1

It`s a fun little competition that gives us the possibility to get comapct pistols..;-)
