I have no idea what to put into one of these things, so here's my SW9VE Sigma's first trip to the range!

I went to Mark's Guns in Florence, Kentucky which is a few miles from where I work, so I am able to go on my lunch break. I got there with 100 rounds to shoot. I had followed the manual and wiped down the gun. I also oiled per the manual.

I was shooting Blazer Brass 115 gr FMJ RN's.

Here is the first 15 rounds through the Sigma shot at ~5 yards:

Here is the last 10 rounds shot at ~10 yards:

All in all I was very happy with the way the Sigma shot. The accuracy seems to be pretty good, mostly just the shooter getting used to it. I need to run back to the store and get some more ammo. I only shot 80 rounds through it on day one. I took the gun home and cleaned it per the user manual.

Congrats on the new gun. I haven't been to Marks yet. I shoot at Shooters Supply in Independence. Good luck with it.

Not bad for your first time out. My first time with my G19 was pretty embarassing, but it looks like you've already getting the hang of it. Those groups will shrink with practice, and you already have some tight mini-groups. Enjoy your Sigma, it should last you quite a while.

It's not the first time shooting a handgun, but it's been awhile. Although I haven't shot with any frequent basis until now. I am excited about putting some more rounds through it!

How is Shooters Supply? Is the range heated? It sure was cold shooting at Mark's, LOL!!!
