The only sig i own is a used p6 which I shoot about every two weeks and I love it. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger.

In the Air Force if you can shoot 35 out of 40 targets you were considered an expert with the M-16. Some people are actually able to come off of the streets and shoot this. Even with a subpar M-16. When I say that these "range" M-16s are used and abused and are rarely cleaned proper.

I know there are new standards on expert. But we only ever get to shoot that gun unless we are deploying. Which is rather laughable now that we augment a lot of army convoys.
You're doing OK for sure. I have never been a "group" or bullseye shooter so I'm not a good judge either. My "requirements" are to be able to shoot quickly at 7-10 yards and keep everything in a 4-5 inch circle at POA. This is why I like the bowling pin matches so much. The goal there is to clear 5 pins off a table at 7 yards as fast as you can. I've shot a sub 5 second round before and lost, so it can be really competitive.

As far as shooting expert in the AF - yup, that was a joke. I have a lazy right eye (about 20/100 or worse) and I shot expert every time - even with the abused range M-16s we had...

That's the beauty of real craftmanship for you!

Can see why they're so pricey. Good shooting btw...I am shamefully inexperienced and would love to get a grouping like you have there. And the fact you are able to go to the range 2 days running consumes me with envy lol

Nice shooting...the only thing that I observe is that you tend to group your shots a little to the left, did you shoot the pistol's at close distance to see if the sights are properlly aligned?
If sights are ok I don't quite remeber what error could be making you shoot a little to the left, maybe a if you are right handed you are squeezing the trigger a little to hard,although that would make your shots low too,so I`m not quite sure...
I love my 9mm P 228,It's the most accurate pistol I own...

Default Good on ya!

Congrats on your sig purchase! I just picked up mine as well, and I have to say they're well worth the extra cash.

Being a noob I have not sighted my gun in yet. I am off to the range again Sunday.


I was shooting at a 7 yard distance.

All advice is greatly appreciated!
