    Wink new gun

    hi badshot, next gun on my list is a sig 229! it will be the first gun ive bought brand new in a long time & its going to be my carry gun. im getting the 40 cal. so i can get conversion barrels for 9mm & 357 sig. later. you picked a very good gun for someone that doesn't know much about them. remember you can get all kinds of strip down manuals with pics on the internet for just about any gun. good luck, & have fun with it. i know i will when i get mine at the latest 2 weeks from now.

    Hi,

    A few things.

    I suspect you are in California. If so, most indoor ranges require that you shoot lead free ammo. Mine does. Winchester winclean is the way to go. Like others have said, 115 grain is just fine.

    This is the cheapest I've found and if you like you can get it in bulk:

    Practice, practice, practice.

    Buy a decent cleaning kit. Some Hoppes #9 solvent and you are all ready to clean it. You can lube it with Mil-tec, but I prefer Slide Glide for all metal to metal. http://www.brianenos.com/pages/slide-glide.html

    As you can see from my signature, I'm a big fan of Sig and I KNOW you will love yours.

    I'm not sure where you are in CA, but I'm in Ventura County and work in the Valley, so if I can help, let me know. Feel free to contact me.

    update

    well guys, picked up the gun yesterday got all the needed tools for the cleaning. got home field stripped it. cleaned and lubed as directed. had my class. shot off 50 rounds with the instructor and lived up to my name through my first 20 rounds. then the instructor told me i was using my sights wrong because i was aiming too low. then the next 30 rounds werent as bad. hit the bulleye a few times. so all and all had a great time. cant wait to get back to the range and finish up the rest of my ammo. im actually pretty tired today. firing a gun uses muscles that i dont normally use. ohhh, one more funny thing i forgot to mention. on one of my rounds the shell flew up and landed between my eye and my glasses. hahaha. burned me a little bit but i was ok. thats all.

    Ricky.
