This is the initial target shooting my new to me P250C-45
As i do with new semi autos I load one round in each magazine that I have which was two.
Fire each one for pistol function and lock back.
Then loaded five in both magazines(force of habit from shooting Bullseye/Precision for so long).
+ it was 16 degrees with a gentle wind, too darn cold and could not feel my trigger finger but had to sight in and test function a few pistols before an upcoming match next month.

Shot at 50 feet one handed in Bullseye fashion.
Shooting two handed seems so awkward anymore.

I shoot an old James Clark SR. .45 long slide built in 1968 with this load.
185gr Nosler custom competition over 4.8gr of Bullseye powder.

The P250 seems to like it also.

Nice shooting, did you move the rear sight to the left to center your group?

Um, Oldhand, the P250 rear sight is fixed. Only the front sight is adjustable. Also, I would look to other remedies before adjusting the sight. I'd shoot the gun from a bench rest/vise to make sure the issue is with the gun and not with me if I were doing this.

Moved the front sight about .015"
It is now just a bit to the left so am going to drift it back maybe .004" and retest next time I go to the range.

Nice shooting.

In California and their darn laws it is hard to find any older pistols but they can be found and are rather pricey. I had some AR Buying to do last year because of the laws. So now I am saving for a P250 and looking.

As being of the older age group I also learned my hand gun shooting using the Revolver and liked the long double action pull.

I belonged to a private Fishing and Hunting Club and they had timed pistol shooting on the targets that rotated 90 degrees and then back in a few seconds. This was back in the early 1980 when I was in my later twenties. We older folk here can remember these I am sure.

So I have a small collection of the Classic SIG P Series Pistols and practice with the first shot as a DA Pull with follow up shots utilizing the sorter single action.

I do have one P320 and that is what brought me here and enjoy the P250 talk also.

Again Good Shooting there and please keep us informed as you get it dialed in.

Hey CP250, what size grip assembly do you have? I've been looking for a 250C with a medium grip, but I'm beginning to think they don't exist (?) Sig only carries them in large and small now and most of the online stores are out of stock. I just purchased a .45 and the box was marked M,(I thought for medium) but when I opened it, Small was imprinted on the frame and yes, it is a little smaller than my other 250s with medium grips. Anybody know where I might be able to find one? Thanks.
