Hello all,
by now you've probably seen the other thread I made whining about my poor financial management skills and impulse purchases. well this is the cause for it, a Sig SP2022. the seller was asking a fairly reasonable price and my slightly lower but still upper end of reasonable offer was instantly accepted(knew I should have offered less). well I got the chance to take it out today and do some shooting. at first the recoil seemed very stiff and accuracy over the first 5 rounds seemed pretty lax, but the groups tightened up a lot and I eventually got used to the recoil, although I should mention that my compact 1911 recoiled less than the sig. the hold is dead on to the white dot on the front sight, which I'm not sure I like since the sight picture obstructs the point of impact, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I shot 8 full magazines of Remington UMC 115gr ammo(120 rounds) and it functioned without a hiccup. the trigger is the biggest adjustment for me. I do not normally shoot DA/SA handguns and the long DA travel was a huge getting used to moment. despite the long travel, the trigger is not gritty at all and even though it is far squishier than anything I would normally enjoy shooting, it was actually not all that horrible to get used to. the ergonomics are by far the best feature of the handgun. I'm still trying to keep the slide lock and decocker straight in my head but for the life of me I reach for the decocker every time I try to drop the slide and the slide stop every time I want to decock... that will take a bit of training I believe. my one major pet peeve about this handgun is the sharp edge inside the the trigger guard, almost instantly, my trigger finger started hurting because as I would pull the trigger, it would slide down and start contacting the trigger guard and the lower side of my trigger finger is worn pretty raw after 120 rounds, definitely something that I might want to take some 1600 grit sand paper to. all in all, this is not what I think of when I think Sig. I think about the M11 I shot and fell in love with. I think about the P226 Navy that I have coveted since I found out there was something even cooler than the M11. the SP2022 really does not compare to the foggy lense of nostalgia. with that said, I do not think this was a bad purchase at all. I think that it is priced right where it should be and it is a very accurate handgun when I do my part. I am happy, and like I said with a little personal modification I think it could become a pleasure to shoot, and with some training a life saving instrument if the need ever arose.

now with all that said, I'm sure you guys came just for the pictures so here they are.

The Offender


the first 30 rounds fired at 10 yards.

15 rounds all double action, at 10 yards(there was one that just missed to the left when I was still adjusting to the DA pull)

messing around with the grading instruction guy in the corner at 10 yards

Great shooting. I get the bug for another 2022 from time to time. They are a great budget Sig, no compromises.

How bout some pics of the pistola?

I have toyed with getting one. I am a striker fired guy but need to improve my da/sa skills. I have a p95dc but it is merely a toy. That is some excellent Shooting tight there !!

Sig SP2022 is a best buy IMHO. great shooting, it will only improve with practice and finger placement so you don't get bite.

Congrats on your new 2022. I like mine a lot. I actually shoot more accurately with it than I do my 229.
