Default New Sig P232 Range Report

Went thru 98 rounds yesterday, not 1 misfire, FTE or FTF, smooth as a baby's butt, hardly any recoil, no slide bite with the Hogue grips and a pleasure to plink around with. Ammo was plentiful at 2 Walmarts, I bought Winchester white box and PMC and picked up some Remington last night. Sighting will take a bit of getting used to, time for corrective lenses I guess.
I also looked at the Walther but the Sig feels better and had a decocker.

The object is to hit all the outer red bands first and slowly work your way to the center.

I think she might be offended if she knew you called her aging...

Sorry Jack, I think I was a bit hard on ya...

From looking at your targets work on pulling that trigger a bit smoother, you look to be jerking it.. Happy shooting..

(Next time buy a real gun, a GLOCK) One last zinger..

Looks like you might be anticipating the recoil and pulling down to compensate. Go back to the range and fill up the mag with live rounds and every few put a dummy rd.

Every time you catch your self jerking thr gun down in anticipation of eat recoil empty out the gun and dry fire 10 triger pulls without jerking the gun down.

This will help a lot!
