Default Swiss pistols shooting day

I went to the local club yesterday evening in order to try out the two Swiss Lugers I presented and a few other Swiss hardware.

Unfortunately the 25 m lane was blocked for the yearly Swiss military and field shooting competitions, so I went to the 50 meters range, oh well, who doesnít like a challenge.

I had already completed the military and field shooting at my other club end June. It went ok, I achieved the same score as last year on the military shooting, 20 rds, which gets me a distinction; but quite less on the field shooting, 18 rds, where I achieved 178 last year, still good for a medal, still to come.

I used the Sig P210-6 with adjustable sights this time, in the previous years I used my 1923 Swiss Luger









So off the to 50 meters lane

Five shots with my friendís black 06/29, it shot high and a little left so I had to aim at the 7 circle underneath



First 5 shots with my new red 06/29



Next five, getting tighter



Next four with three miracle shots (the old Swiss ordnance ammo boxes contain 24 rds, for three mags of 8 shots)



Then I tried a few competition practice 10 shot strings, the best one yielding 88/100. Needless to say I am super happy with this acquisition



I also tried a cheap ex Lausanne Police Swiss pistols shooting day 1977 P220 I bought with the Luger. It shot surprisingly well



Shot my 1949 P49 (210-1)



And the P49 (210-2) I had chromed



A great evening in a very nice setting with perfect weather

A good day at the range. I'd be happy with those 50 meter results if I got them at my 25 yard range.
That paperwork is a good example of the way your nation handles four official languages.

Love the p210...never owned one. Some folks say the American made dont shoot as well, Knowing Sig as I do I cant imagine they would build a bad pistol.

Very impressive.

At my peak performance, I might be able to group like that at 25yds. My best ever group was shot off the bench with a Beretta 92FS, shot SA, 5 shots at 25yds. 4 rounds were in a clover leaf, with a 5th round about an inch away (first-shot flyer...?). The group as a whole was in the 10 ring of a B27 target, about 5 o'clock to the X. Was never able to repeat that.

I used to read Leroy Thompson's bodyguarding articles in Combat Handguns magazine. I remember one article where he mentioned a fellow bodyguard who chose to carry a Sig P210 on assignments that might require a long-range shot.
