Rootin’ Tootin’ Sig Shootin’

First Sig Target.jpgI went to the indoor range on Friday and shot about 65-rounds. I don’t frequent this place much but I decided to give it a go – what are you kidding? I could hardly wait!
I bought a couple targets, clipped ’em up, and sent them downrange. This was the first.
I fired a magazine at each of the lower targets at fifteen feet, then did it again at the the higher pair at twenty-one feet, and finally I unloaded two mags at the center one at thirty feet.
One thing that I did seriously noticed was that of my glasses prescription, the lenseses are not workin’ good for the shootinz’.
But I’m not a handgunner so I don’t know how this merits, except for a bit of wild verticla stringing…
The red 10’s are 7/8″ of an inch in diameter.

  1. Hi Shoothouse Barbie! For my birthday a month ago I bought myself an affordable < HREF="http://anthroblogogy.blogspot.com/2009/01/stripping-p220.html" REL="nofollow">used Sig P220<>. I wanted to minimize caliber variations and already have a 1911A1 and know that I’m happy with .45 ACP – turns out the gun is about twenty years old but you’d never know it to look at it! 🙂

  2. The aperture might work, but really I need a prescription adjustment for both pistol and rifle. I had to go with the larger peep-hole in the AR’s sight because I was getting “whiskering” or “spider-webs” in my sight-picture…

  3. Great minds think alike! I own a 220 as well. Bought it as a SIG factory re-man about 2 years back. It will absolutly drive tacks at 21 feet. I agree that your gun will like just about anything you feed it. Lighter weight bullets will likely have a lower impact than heavier ones (YMMV). When shooting at paper targets, you might try using an a aperture. To try it out, punch a small hole in a piece of card stock or the like, hold it up to your eye, and aim at something (safety check gun first, obviously). The improvement in focus is usually dramatic. If it seems to help, send me a PM (I think you have my email) and I will detail instructions on how to make your own using a pair of flip-up shades

  4. Thanks Tweety!David – I noticed using a center-mass hold I was still dropping the 230gr FMJ ammo down, and figure the gun will like lighter and faster hollowpoints (spendy!)? All I’ve ever shot in .45ACP is ball…

  5. Yer hittin’ the target just fine.pistol skill comes more slowly than rifle, I find, and is quicker to degrade once left to atrophy.Seven yards is plenty good for most of your drills too, and hopefully you can do some movement to simulate live fire too.My range is no-can-do with that last bit, so I make the most of doing dry-fire exercises with one of my DA autos (your SIG is <>perfect<> for this) after doing a safe check. This freaks out some folks, since it’s usually considered to be a violation of rules #1 and #3, minimum. A clear basement and extreme diligence is my answer.
