The short reach trigger is not Sig's greatest invention. Swap it, use heavier ammo and stand perhaps one yard closer (or move target closer) and then get real good at that then move it back and use lighter ammo, and you'll shoot a little better. This may take months...

I would think that if you don't modify the pistol beyond just installing the GGI trigger, there shouldn't be an issue with the warranty. Switching triggers is a fairly simple process provided you aren't going to some off-the-wall aftermarket product and I surely wouldn't put a GGI trigger in that category. If you need to send the pistol in for warranty work and are concerned about that, just switch the trigger back to the stock unit.

Yeah - Good shooting!! Taking a class or 3 will give you some drills and techniques. If you conceal carry, timed shooting from a holster draw is very important training.

Cheers

Try really focusing on the front sight. I mean really focus. You'll find your groups will improve dramatically.

Not many people will tell you this shooting secret all the pros know . . . if you do ALL the things on the above chart at the same time while pulling the trigger, every round will go dead center. It's a yin and yang, forces balance thing.

You're welcome.

A cop friend of mine told me that a prank they pull on rookies/trainees is to tell them when pistol training that if they scream at the top of their lungs while firing they'll be more accurate. A few have done it all the way to qualification.
