Joined the Sig family today
I had been wanting to get a Sig for quite a while and even though I really like my XD9 Service, it was just too bulky for CCW. I got a new 239 9mm today and am excited now to go out and break it in at the range tomorrow. I got it all cleaned up and lubed, ready to go. Sorry, no pics yet but it is the standard black with SA/DA.
I wanted a smaller conceal gun that was reliable and after lurking for quite a while on this and other sites, along with research and test firing one, that was the choice. I came close to getting the 229 in the .40 but I feel most comfortable with the 9mm and I blow a lot of rounds through a month, so will save a little on the ammo. I'll post some pics and give a range report after the first trip out.
I am going to use WWB 115 grain for the first 200 rounds or so and I use Federal Hydra Shok 147gr for carry. If anyone recommends any other round for break in, let me know.
Range report for break in and pic
If the image comes through, this is the carry. The range report for today for first time on new carry was a little disappointing, but I attribute to the gun being new and some work I need to do to get comfortable with the DA/SA trigger. I'm so used to my XD that I think that contributed to some poor groupings. Anyway, I put 12 magazines through, with 3 magazines of 115 gr wwb, 8 magazines of range reloads 115 gr, and 1 magazine of Federal HydaShok 147 gr.
The first magazine was great. Shooting at 15 feet. Nice tight group with a couple at about 7 o'clock but others right in the middle. Second and third magazines were similar. From there on, groupings got looser and I had a hard time keeping groups tight. I'm so used to my ED punching out the target that I guess I was expecting too much for the first 50-100 rounds. It will improve though the 100 or 200 rounds this weekend.
Overall, very pleased with the new firearm. Very comfortable grip and easy to control. I'll post a target after this weekend trip. You didn't want to see the one from today, trust me!
