SIG!

Ahhhh....picked my P226 tonight. Man, is it made nice! Going to spend some time reading the manual, field-stripping it, cleaning it, getting to know it, and practicing loading/unloading it with dummy rounds. That's something I do with every firearm I own, and one of those things that was passed down to me. It's quite a bit fatter-in-the-hand than my beloved 1911 pistols, so that's going to take a little getting used to, and I'm sure my grip will be different on it. It's also got a *very* different trigger pull than I'm used to with my 1911's. Oh, well....looks like a good reason to spend more time at the range!

  2. I love the 1911 so let me know how the P226 works for you. Whatever you do make sure you get enough ammo for both

  3. I'll post a mini 'Range Report' the first time I take it out. Been down all weekend with a nasty cold.

  4. I'll be interested to know "where" you shoot- Whether it shoots POA or you have to adjust... I tried a 226 and shot 530 low all day.

  9. Headed off to the range in a few minutes. I'll do some targets at 5yds, 10yds, and 15yds to how well it shoots to POA, and post some pix here later.
