Sig P226 9mm Report
4 Attachment(s)
Went to the Base Pistol Club Saturday, to try out my new Sig P226 in a 9mm.

It was a lot of fun! The Sig shoots soooo smooth and I dig the double action!

I shot 75 Federal 115gr FMJs flawlessly through it! My target was the one on the top and my friends was on the bottom. We were all over the target and had some grouping. Keep in mind we were also shooting at a distance of 30 yards! :mad:

Oh well. It was still fun! :D

I'm glad you like your P226. It looks like a pretty nice pistol.

How come 30 yards? Don't they let you shoot at closer ranges?

I love the P226. I think it's a great weapon, but I have the same question that CA asked.

What made you shoot a pistol at 30 yards for a maiden voyage?? :confused:

The reason we had to shoot at 30 yards was due to it being a range on base. They don't let you shoot closer than 25 yards! The 25 yard lanes were already taken. So we were stuck on the 30 yard lane and I was also being the Range officer since I was last to show up lol.

I hope to shoot it at 7 yards next time!

There you go. ;)

Yeah the 226 is a great gun, I have 3. 1 Equinox .40 and 2 regular 226's in .40 and .357 sig. Never shot the 9mm but am sure it is a great gun.
Just a question to any who might read this........................
The .40 and .357 magazines are all the same, but if I was really stupid and accidentaly loaded a magazine full of .357 sig into my .40 would bad things happen, I'm sure if it was the other way around it would just turn out to be a fail to feed issue.

It's hard to beat a Sig. I have a 226 (9mm) and 229 (40) and have loved them both for every round they have fired. And it's a lot.
