    got to the range today

    got to the range today and got to shoot my sig p229 for the first time. man i tell ya, that thing is smooth and comfortable. definitely an awesome purchase
    the left sheet is at about 20-25 yards
    the right sheet was 10-15 yards
    good luck must be with me, the first shot of the gun was dead middle
    but i obviously still have some stuff to work on with my shooting, i didnt think it was bad for the first time of shooting it.

    You did real well, nice shooting.
    Don't forget to shoot human silhouettes targets, BG don't run around with bulls eyes on them.

    Good shootin' there pardner!
    I shoot at 9" paper plates or pizza box tops when I do my range thang. Silhouettes are nice, but they cost more. It's the focus you're after and using your sight picture effectively. Keep up the good work!

    Never heard of that. What do you hang your targets on ?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    the targets are paper stuff u buy from walmart, but they hang on pvc piping that is setup like
    **|
    --+--
    |***|

    (stars are just for spacing needs)
    then between the bottom bars is a rubber band with two clips to hang the target
