Short and Sweet range reports
I hit the range Saturday with a good friend of mine...I took my two newest additions with me.My Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle (40sw) and my Sig P6(225) 9mm.
First I shot my friends Beretta Cougar (380acp),because he thinks it's the bomb....it's ok,But this isn't a report on that gun.
Then I went directly to my P6.I placed my target at about the 15yd line and let it settle as I Double checked my eyes and ear protection...Slapped a loaded mag in,took aim and.....
Take a look at this target.I can't complain with a group like that,the first time shooting this weapon.
Needless to say,I quickly pulled off my target and saved it for my range report.
I love this gun!!!It took zero time to get used too and I find that I get better groups If I don't take my time between shots. (I'll practice more DA firing next time)
Weapon -- Sig P6(225) 8rnd single stack mags
modifacations -- Sile grips,18# mainspring,Trijicon night sights
Ammo -- Winchester 9mm white box 115gr FMJ
Next up was my Magnum Research 40sw Baby Desert Eagle.
This...I have to get used to.Still,Not a bad first group and it did get better.Pic is of the first group.I didn't have a whole lot of ammo with me for this but I put 50rds through it without a hitch...I have no complaints....I just used the Sig more that day.
What I did find NEAT and unexpected was that when you insert a full mag with the slide locked back,It automatically releases the slide and chambers a round...I could see where this would help in a nervy situation.
This is a smaller target than the first pic!
Weapon -- IWI/Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle (40sw) 12rnd mags
Mods -- None
Ammo -- HSM(hunting shack) 180gr FMJ
Sure wish I could shoot that good. Dang old eye balls jack knife after about the frist three rounds. When your eyes start to go your shooting suffers. Good shooting youngman.
Thanks for the reports. Can you tell me where you got the grips for your P6?

They came in a plain,old looking plastic bag,held closed by a staple.The grips looked like sh*t ....no finish and covered in dust and had some sort of yellow substance dripped and dried onto small areas...that was a real bear to get off.I cleaned ,lightly sanded and refinished them in tung oil.
Did ya notice I bent the mag base plates to give my pinky a break?It worked wonders....
