    My first handgun.......look forward to some good range time.

    Hello there gentlemen. This is my first handgun purchase even though I have shot sporadically in my military career. I look forward to learning a lot about it here. I picked up this Sig P229R .40 cal Equinox a couple of days ago. Field stripped it, cleaned it and relubed.....just waiting to finally get to shoot it.

    Welcome to the forum. I am Sig man myself and that is a nice looking handgun. Beware, that this is only your first handgun....more will be in your future. Get out there to the range and give us a report.

    Thank you sir for the welcome. I'm looking forward to getting my fiance' a Sig also (maybe a 239) as she is getting her CCW. I believe I can only buy one handgun every 30 days in Virginia.

    I just range tested my new P239 two tone SAS Gen II 9mm. LOVE IT!! Very accurate. Putting some black Hogue extreme aluminum grips on it. I have a P236 Elite also. I want to try the P220 next.

    Greetings and welcome. Check the SiG Photo thread for a pic of my carry P228. Something similar in the composition of it and your picture

    Just got back from the range......fun times for someone that hasn't shot in over 10 years. Ears are still ringing.....need better hearing protection at the range. I also forgot my damn glasses in my house.

    Sig Sauer .40 S&W:

    First two magazines (a little left. Sights, lack of glasses or just me being rusty):



    Future wife did pretty good....she was a bit nervous. I won't post her target

    My last 12 rounds. I'm def' no Rambo or gun addict, but it was fun shooting again:
