    so I purchased my first handgun from someone on OT (gimik), it's a SigPro 2022, so far Im still getting accustomed to it and learning the ins and outs but Im planning on picking up some eye/ear protection tomorrow and hopefully be out at the range this weekend...

    If anyone have tips or anything on anything it would be appreciated, thanks :)

    spend a good day at the range with it.bring a couple 100 rds with ya and some lube*just in case* and get a real feel for it.i`ve never messed with one of those,but the pics i`ve seen,looks pretty sweet

    take some lessons/courses. you can spend $1000 on ammo and shoot by yourself, and you wont learn as much as you do at a $100 handgun course. Ask around at the local shops to find out what is recommended.

    Go here for cheap magazines. If the grips seem too narrow or small for you they also have the replacable rear grips for $5 (they're $40 from Sig). They also sell the .357 Sig barrels. You just replace the .40 barrel with the .357 Sig barrel and you've got another caliber option. Does yours have the DAO trigger or the DA/SA trigger? It can easily be converted by sending it back to Sig. Overall you've got an awesome gun with tons of options.

    It's the standard DA/SA trigger. He's got the extra grip too.

    Hope you like it :h5:

    I really just never used it. I still think it's a great gun, but I'm going to get something I will carry every day instead of having another safe gun :hs:
