Loving my P229 more and more

After two months, I finally got back to the outdoor range and the steel silhouettes. Our sheriff opens up the dept.'s range once a month to the public. I missed July's date because of a dislocated left shoulder and fractured humerus. I was out there today in my immobilizer shooting right hand only.

Three 15 round mags times three reloads each equals 135 rounds. (Note to self - buy 200 rounds next time) I worked mostly on double-tapping three silhouettes in different sequences (slow is smooth; smooth is fast). I worked my way out to 25 yards with 85% accuracy, with only one hand.

My point is this: that's really good for me, and I give my P229 the majority of the credit. It is so easy, and fun, to shoot!

Glad to hear you are liking your 229......glad to hear that you keep practicing..as it is our duty as leo's to make sure that we are very proficient with our guns (as we don't want to mistankenly miss our target and hit an innocent bystander. In my dept we qualify like every 4 months..i have been shooting my p229 and p220 for several years now and continue to appreciate the quality of these 2 guns. Life is good and hope that you recover well and soon:d!

Deliciously accurate ! Mine's a .357, and will group with all holes touching out to 15 yds. That, to me, is pretty good shooting.

The P229 is another one of the stunning pistols in the SIG P series that is a proven performer. I own a couple myself. Glad to hear you are loving yours.

There are people who I can't convince that SIG pistols like the P229 are definitely worth the extra investment - until they try one of mine and that changes everything for most that do.
