I found out last week, the PMR-30 makes a rather fine Steel Challenge pistol. Simply on a hunch, I took it to Monday's shoot, after fastidiously loading the two magazines with 25 rounds each. I had only two failures (misfires) during the match, and so didn't fare any worse than anyone else, while shooting a gun with far more growl. I find the sights near-perfect for shooting steel. Naturally, I'm not as fast as I am with my optically sighted Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite, but I feel that will come with time. Biggest problem is finding ammo, plus the cost factor. So much fun though, I'm using it again tomorrow.
