    Oh well - maybe they saw my socks and sandals!

    Questionable math and scoring. I missed 4. The score assigned was 65%. However getting 17 out of 21 right gives a score of 80.95. There were some scores reported that are impossible to achive. Did a little math and discovered the following.

    20 of 21 is 95.24%
    19 of 21 = 90.48%
    18 of 21 = 85.71%
    17 of 21 = 80.95%
    16 of 21 = 76.19%
    15 of 21 = 71.43%
    14 of 21 = 66.67%
    13 of 21 = 61.9%
    12 of 21 = 57.14%
    11 of 21 = 52.38%
    10 of 21 = 47.62%

    Chris there is no way to round any score to get 82% which you reported as your score. Nor is there anyway to round to get the 65% that was given as my score. RSSZ's wife got 81% which is a real score which is accomplished by getting 17 right. How many do you have to get to get 82%? Lots of people reported scoring 75%. So how many right answers out of 21 does it require to get 75%? I think the test just assigns a score sort of close to what you should have. Although I don't understand a 65 when I missed 4 questions.

    I was too lazy to do the math George but yeah - something seemed a bit odd. I am thinking my score should have been based on at worst 18/21 so that would have been 86% (rounding up). I still reckon I got 19/21 in fact.

    Seems very arbitrary - maybe the math coding within that test was very iffy - sure was not reflecting true percentile results it seems. Oh well - all supposed to be in fun I guess and - my guns go bang when I pull the trigger, that's way more important

    I missed 19 and 20. Oh well. Two weapons I'm not all that familiar with. SA80 just because I've only seen them on TV and the Desert Eagle because I don't give a crap about the Desert Eagle. If I want a magnum I'll get a Smith or a Ruger.

    All I got wrong was the .40 one (and I'll be honest and say I guessed on the Glock part count question) ... and that question has been argued hundreds of times on the net.

    I said "about the same" because the track record of both 9mm and .40 is actually about the same (keep in mind that there's almost a century of data on the 9x19).

    They might have made some questions worth more than others, Easy worth less
    Hard worth more.

    Just a thought.

    I got a 75, same as a couple of others.

    Yes they did, and even scarcer was the .41 mag.
