I just got back from the range, took my Sig Sauer P250 in 40 S&W for its first outing. I need to work on my technique with this gun, at 7 yards I was hard pressed to hit a 12x18 silly wet! I thought I was rusty, so I picked up my 15-2 and shot a 4" group at the same range and target! Went back to the Sig and had a hard time putting rounds on paper. Its got the standard triticon sites and I was aiming at the center of the target. I'm going to have to take a large piece of cardboard and paint it white and put it on the target frame so I can see where the rounds are falling so I can correct my aiming point. After 75 rounds I can't really say where the main point of impact is since the target backstop is like swiss cheese to start with. I've heard others say how accurate Sigs are and I know its a combination of me and the sites but dang, I've never had as much difficulty with a new gun in my life.
Anybody got any pointers for me on this Sig difficulty?
On a brighter note, I took my 15yo daughter with me, she had a great time! We took my Anschutz 22 rifle out to zero the new scope I put on it and at 25 yds she had a ball. She also shot my DW 357 at the 7 yard target and did very well. She shot 158gr SJH mags for the first time and loved it. Always before she stuck with 38 Specials, she is growing up. I can see I'm going to need a progressive press to reload all the empty brass I think she will be generating!
Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
If a man designed it, and a man built it, then a man can fix it.
