    I'd be happy if I could do that. I know my guns can, I'm not sure I can!

    Other than being a stick in the mud, what is your point?

    I called Sig a few years ago and ask how they determined which sight numbers they use on a P-220. I was told #6 front, #8 rear is standard P-220, and they test for windage and function at 25 yards.

    That group looks good to me for 50 yards.

    That looks like a 3~3.5" 6 shot group (ref. to your slide size), I'd say it's pretty good for 50 yard.

    Bushmaster, if you're happy with it;then that's all that matters. Not really that bad as far as I'm concerned and I do shoot pistols.

    My STI .40 from the bench, shoots under 2" at 20 yards and it will
    hold 4" at 50 yards. The Sig group is average at best.

    .44Mag (3) shots at 45yrds from a sand bag rest. 200gr Hornady XTP JHP's with Winchester primer, Remington case and 17.4 grains of Accurate No.7 powder. Crappy cell phone picture. I did not bring a tape that day thus the thumb for size comparison.

    Ok, I sort of cheated. It was a 14" T/C Contender. It's capable of better groups but I'm not.

    "Thats a surprisingly poor pattern from a rest, an ammo change might decrease the size. Certainly a Sig prints better than that! "

    I am sure the Sig can do better.
    I did not have a comfortable rest and I could see my sights wiggling due to my unsteadiness.

    Also, it was the first time I have shot a pistol from a sitting position in a long time.

    That's a nice group for a Sig at 50yd from just a supported rest. One of the finest combat/duty handgun ever made. Don't pay any attention to the keyboard Ninjas. Lot's of hot air blows through here from people who always can do it better, but they probably live in the back bedroom of their moms 10" wide.

    Guess I'll add one of my toys. 50 yards can't make out the middle group, but the one under the trigger guard says .570 red dot no magnification.

    At least WGB can appreciate a nice group when he sees one.

    I was very pleased that I was able to be on the paper at 50 yards.

    Needless to say that I could not even see the holes from 50 yards. I was very pleased at the all clear to walk up to the target and find a small well-centered group.
