    Just picked up a Sig 238 w/ range report

    Just bought one of these nifty little mini 1911's. First thought just looking at it I loved it. Then I held it and fell a little more in love. Then I shot it and fell completely in love. This gun fits my hands better than any other pocket pistol, and for a little more money the comfort is well worth it. I only had one failure to load out of the 200 rounds i shot through it and i think it was due to the flat-nosed ammo. The recoil is very minimal and with the hogue jr grip it was next to nothing. Here are a few pics.
    Range at about 10 yrds

    Hey, Great deal on the lil 45!
    Man its really a big difference in recoil and accuracy with these lil things isn't it?
    The recoil is so much easier to manage with this gun, You can stack 7 rounds in a FBI target at 5-7 yards before a cat can lick his butt, thats what single action will do for you!
    took my to the range today and ran another 50 rounds through it.
    I actually took the repaired TCP back to the range for a final checkout and the Sig was hanging on my hip so I couldn't resist firing it--Again!-had to buy a box of range reloads as i had shot the 50 that I took with me in the tcp!
    congrads friend and hope she works out good for you, i love mine!
    PS: I thought that i would mention to you that someone stuck Chewing Gum into the hollow points on your ammo!-LOL

    Hard not to love a Sig!

    Congrats on a great gun. My next purchase is a P239!

    I looked at one of these not to long ago...wasn't sure about it, Good to see info and positive things on it. We don't have a rental range around, so it comes down to reports of others...

    Could be, but targets made out of that kind of paper tear easily and in odd ways without any bullets keyholing.

    The slip-on black rubber grip really dresses the little pistol up nicely.

    I own one myself and I LOVE mine, it's the most expensive handgun I own and it's certainly worth it. I wish my pictures wouldn't turn out so bury

    Looks like keyholing to me but I'd get some different paper that didn't tear in 'odd ways'. As a thought does anyone think that rapid,I mean really rapid fire out of a short barrel might lead to keyholing??
