Well, I've been shooting now for about six months and Im getting better. At 7 yards my grouping in the center is really good. But, this is all done with my Sig P226. Its accuracy and recoil are amazing. Is there another gun out there that shoots with such precision? Can you give me some advice? I was looking at the FNP9 maybe because a lot of people have been raving about them.HK of course, and the Walther P99 because our friend Shipwreck swears by them. Any input would be appreciated.
The Sig Sauer P226 is one of the great 9mm service pistols on the market today. The Glock 17 and 19, and the Beretta 92FS (M9 in the U.S. military) are also among the top service pistols in the 9mm caliber.
Almost every pistol is capable of firing a small group at 7 yards. The issues that come into play are if the shooter is cabable of holding a consistent target picture and firing each round in the same manner. For a person to tell you which firearm will work for you is like telling you what to eat for breakfast each morning for the day you are going to have. It is a personal decision based upon how the grip feels to you and how well you can pick up the sight picture. People can mention how pistols have worked for them but you need to actually go out and try different ones to tell want will work for you. Just picking up a pistol and holding it are also different from actually firing it. So if possible try to fire a model before making a final decision.
yes biotech, you are right on what you are saying.
But, I know that when I shoot with the p226, its really easy to hit the target where Im aiming. I don't know if this is because of the 4.4 inch barrel. I also use a P-01 CZ, which I find that Im not as accurate. And I also have the Steyr M9 which is really fun to shoot, but the target sights are a trick. But man..the Sig... hands down, is worth every dollar. I was just curious what else has such precision in craftsmanship
The Sig Sauer P226 is a fantastic 9mm pistol. I really like those FNP-9's too. I have a .40 version of that gun and it's spot on. It's the only poly frame I own or want to own for that matter.
If I was out looking for a 9mm right now and didn't own one I'd be looking at the Sigs, FNP and M&P Smith & Wesson. I like being able to change the back strap on the Smith and FNP. It does a lot for the overall feel of the weapon.
I'm one that likes having a hammer on my pistols. So I'd most likely get a Sig Sauer. There are a few models that chamber in 9mm - 226,229, 250,239. Check out gunbroker.com and you can get an idea what some of these look like.
If u don't mind buying used I would suggest the Sig P225/P6.I just bought one for myself as a b-day/christmas present.I fell in love w/it the first time I saw it.It was extreamly clean and looked like it had never been shot.I bought it for $295.00 and 2mags came w/it.It is extreamly accurate and so far I have not had any problems w/FTF or anything else.I have not made any mods to it and the only thing that I plan on doing to it is changing the grips.I'm very pleased w/everything else about the gun.I have been feeding it WWB ammo & my reloads as well w/no problems at all.I think that it is a beautiful gun.I never thought that I would be able to afford a Sig but am so very happy that I could afford the P225/P6.I think for the money this is a really good gun.
Here is a pic of my Sig P6 who is named Siglet
