All of the points were added to derive the "Total" then for the .45 caliber shooters the total was multiplied by 10% to give added Power Factor.  Those who shot 9 mm were not given this added benefit. Congratulation to Dave Shaw in taking the TOP SHOT!  Paul owes you a gun case. Malfunction was one of the elements we were looking to identify in the class. 1911's are known to have multiple malfunctions and thus often thought of as unreliable.  Although 60% of the class experienced some sort of malfunction, Oscar, Chris Weir & Matthew Kanin & Dave Shaw's 1911 demonstrated ZERO malfunction with almost 250 rounds fired in 4 hours. They now belong to the ZERO MALF CLUB.
