2 Tone 9MM Range Report and a few Q's
Just got back from my second trip to the range with my new SIG.
The gun fires like a champ, i really really enjoy it. The feel of the gun is amazing when firing, I shot a .40 glock, H&K, and the SIG before purchasing.
I took my Dad with me, he has a Glock .40 and he really enjoyed my gun. He's been shooting guns for a while so of course he outshot me. I haven't had many experiences shooting but i'm getting better with my aim.
We ended up going through 150 rounds without any problems. My first trip I went through about 125 rounds and had a 2-3 FTF but as i said not a single problem this time. I got into the practice of slapping the back of the mags after I load them (did that everytime this 2nd trip) to properly set them in the mag. When i was getting the FTF's the first time I'm pretty sure I didn't slap the mag, I also could have been over lubed or limp wristing.
One thing I noticed after both range trips is when i take the gun apart is that the slide is FILTHY. I'm shooting Winchester WB and it feeds nice, but I'm wondering if its just naturally dirty ammo cause when I take out the barrel and spring the slide is pretty black. Then again it could be exagerated because of the silver color of the slide. Anybody have any experience with this? I'm pretty anal so I've cleaned the gun both times after the range trips, ha. How often should i be cleaning and lubing? Anyone else have range ammo they prefer over WWB?
P.S. I have some Remington Golden Saber .147 for HD.
