Coming home with 7 medals, 4 of them gold? I'd say that's pretty pretty damn good for a team representing an ex-communist country where until not too long ago all handguns were banned for civilian use and the Police and the Armed Forces standard issue sidearm was a crappy subcompact .380 pistol. I remember the little .380 Carpati was so ineffective and inaccurate past 10 yards, most officers were not even bothering carrying it.
Pretty impressive result from a shooting team that has a negligible tradition in shooting sports.
