2022 Range Time

Finally got my new .40 2022 out the the range. It rained this morning so it was a tad on the muddy side. But I knew there would be vary few people out there.

Couple things I came across. My thumb interfered with the slide release, which would not lock the slide back, a known problem which I adjusted and all was well.

My target holder can not withstand repeated shots of .40, as I only got to fire 89 bullets, 79 were wwb, the other 10 were remington ultimate home defense which I had no problems with but just don't care that much for.

Another thing I had to adjust for was my sights. This 2022 came with contrast dot the i sights. I had to line up the center of the front dot with the top of the rear sights to get it center of the target. this was at around 20-25 feet. This thing feels good, I'm never getting rid of it. I might change out the sights though, not sure yet.

I shot my 9mm 250 after getting some rounds through the 2022. I must say that thing is looking more like a turd everyday. I think I was shooting high and to the right with that.

Here is my results

I've purchased both the home defense and golden saber. To me they appear almost identical, the quality control is a little better on the golden sabers. The sabers were also $5 more. Performance was identical at the range using both.

If I remember correctly glocktalk had a thread about this. I believe that someone was able to talk with a remington rep and confirmed that they were one in the same.

Just got the 2022 in 9mm & couldn't be happier! With old right hand fracture, I labored for months looking for low perceived recoil & at range yesterday I couldn't be happier. Some have knocked the DA long pull "safety" trigger!? Seriously? A Glock is much much easier to pull IMUO. Isn't that the point of "DA only" safety? I mean when in SA mode I think Sig is 5 to 6 lbs.? BICBW. Feels like 6 to me with fairly short take up, smooth break, & reset! This Sig is accurate, balanced, ergonomics of long slide & mag release are spot on for my medium hands! To each his own but IMUO this is the 9mm for me at any price point!

Here are my lastest results at the range.

This was my p250 9mm. Don't let anybody tell you these are ****(I may have refered to mine as a turd but I changed my mind this morning), once they are worn in they are awesome.

A few tips:

In the first photo here, there are a lot of shots outside the head region on the left side. Slow down and focus on your trigger pull (unless your sights really do need adjustment). Accuracy first, speed second. Misses don't stop the bad guys, only scare them. Practice double- and triple-taps on target with that DA/SA switchover. Perfect practice makes a better shooter. Have a friend load up your magazines with a combination of snap caps and fire one shot per second at a steady pace and you'll quickly find any problems with your trigger pull.

Slowly build up your "pace ceiling." A couple misses in a string of fire will indicate that you are at that relative "pace." You should strive to stay in that slightly uncomfortable range. You'll build skill in this way, much like exercising at an elevated heart rate increases your cardio.

The P250 groups look pretty good. Try to keep torso shots in the nine ring at all ranges and get the "corrected" torso targets that puts the center higher up where the vitals are actually located, not around the diaphragm.

Regards,

Rob

Thanks Rob, will try to focus more next time as it was a little chilly out this morning while at the range. It got better as time went by I got more on target. Also I believe the Federal American Eagle ammo that I switched to made little bit of a difference.

As for the targets I will look for the ones you refering to but I got these on sale, so I couldn't argue there.

Thanks

No problem, dude. I love helping people and teaching/coaching them to become better shooters.

When you do your dry fire practice, focus on your trigger pull from the draw. This will quickly teach you to get your grip correct the first time before your pistol is on target. Start building muscle memory and use familiar contact points when drawing and placing your hands on the pistol. To get that DA trigger pull down, you have to start pressing the trigger before you reach full extension, so that the shot breaks as soon as your sights are aligned on target. This is a major time killer for many pistol shooters, young and old, new and experienced. Start really slow, making sure that the draw cycle and trigger press is as perfect as possible. Build that muscle memory! When you start perfecting it, start building a little speed. Professional shooters can draw from concealment and get a round on target in under three seconds, and this is their practice methods. If you have more questions, shoot them my way!

Regards,

Rob
