Range Report, new SP2022, outdoor range

Well I just got it, and wanted to see how a $400 SIG would shoot.

So off to the range, 4 wheel drive to get in, (sign said range closed, too nasty for shooters, of course I am tough).

About 15 degrees, wind 5-10 mph, NW

I'm tough, (or so I thought), go out there, oh hell I forgot the mag loader, oh well, it is just 9mm, how hard can it be.

So loaded up the first mag, 10 rounds in a 15 round mag, spring stiff, probably from the cold, hands stiff, from the cold.

Shoots nice, hit steel silhouette, 25 yards, double tap, cool

Go back to bench, now can only get 9 rounds, in the mag, gloves on, fingers stiffer, oh well

Next mag, only 7 rounds, hell got two mags, load them both up, got 6 in the second.

Boom, boom, empty already, damn I wish I would have remembered that maglula, oh well

Load mag, only 5 rounds, hands hurt, take off gloves (skinny shooting gloves), hands now really cold, second mag, who knows, can't feel fingers.

boom, boom, empty again, w t f

Hell I can do this, (or maybe not.)

another 4 in the mag, then 3, hands numb now, face frozen, ice on mustache, questions about sanity coming to mind.

Oh hell, enough testing, gather up everything, have been here for......, check watch, what 45 min, you wuss, fired 60 rounds, awww go home and warm up.

Report:

Gun functions fine, shooter a wuss

glad to hear that the Sp2022 gets the job done in cold temps. Those mag loaders are worth every penny in my opinion

Before I took it out, I field stripped it, greased the rails, lube, wiped off excess.

It functioned without a hitch, and I was shooting some real garbage stuff, 60 rounds, boom, boom.

this is really a best kept secret, never thought that I would like a polymer gun, who knew

I've shot matches in cold wet weather, makes me question my sanity, because after a while the fun meter is pegged.

Congrats on the gun, I hear only good things about the SP2022.

Glad it worked well for you.

I have still never had a single round fail in either my 9mm or my .40 S&W/.357 Sig.

As for shooting outdoors in that cold, fortunately parking at the range I shoot at is right in front of your lane. Just get in the truck and run the heater while you are reloading, then jump out, shoot, and repeat.

LOL! I feel your pain! I shoot at an outdoor range too. Not so much this time of year!

Just got some Speer Gold dot that I want to try in my M11-A1, but below 0 overnight and highs in the teens next couple of day. Should warm up some over the weekend.

Dirt, don't that "4 Wheeler" of yours have a heater? Heck, if there wasn't anyone around, you could have trained shooting from a "vehicle". Oh, by the way, don't do what a guy from another department, did many years ago... put a couple of rounds through your own hood!
This sounds like an event to accompany the "Polar Bear" plunge... "Hope ya don't catch a COLD"!!

LOL that was a funny post. I find it weird that the springs on my SP2022 mags are more stiff (that's what she said also), then my other sig mags. Like my P320, P226 Legions mag springs are much more softer and I can actually hand load them full. But for the SP2022, it hell trying to get the last round in the mag (15 round mag). Heck I struggle with it with my speed loader also (upula).


But my sp2022 is very accurate like my P226 legion.

I did get in the truck to try and see if loading was any easier, it wasn't

Probably not a good idea for me to shoot from the truck, then I would be buying side windows today, oh wait was I supposed to roll that down,

DirtDiver69,

Thank-You, Sir, for your eval...

How would you compare the 2022 with a Glock 17 or 19? I know the feeling is different. I have a P226 TACOPS and a P938, as well as a G34 Gen 4 w/all the bells and whistles... I confess, I have totally, irrevocably fallen in love with the Sigs, and I've owned 8 Glocks over the years... Prefer them over my previous 1911's (10 over 40 years)... Closest to the Sigs, I like the Beretta M9A1 (shucks any 92 iteration)...

Hickock45 is a giant of a man, with hands that could easily palm a basketball... Says the grips of the 2022 are too small, but it works- no problems... For him, very high praise...

So glad to hear more good things about your pistol, Sir...

In addition to how the 2022 performs against a Glock, how about the 320?

Looking forward to your analysis...

GBY&Y's

Good stuff. I'm loving my 2022. 1500 rounds through it so far, no hiccups(well, one little stovepipe but... I still love her.) Well on its way to being my favorite work-horse gun. They look nice when they're clean, but they're just down right sexy when they're dirty.
I noticed my Mec-gar 17 round mag was a bit easier to load. Then again the factory ones were fine for me in this Texas heat.
