    I also used (2) 3x5 cards @ 7Y for the same drill.
    Given how limited, and expensive ammo is of late, most of my live fire has been comprised of this drill or some variation of it for 50 reps or so. I really like this type of thing for working on the SIG manual of arms.
    Nobody is impressed by what you can't do. -THJ

    My range sessions have been trimmed down to 50 rounds per until that light at the end of the tunnel is an ammo train.
    I started doing "The First 48 Drill" (basically half of my "99 Drill").

    Target : 3x5 card
    7 yards, 2.5sec PAR: draw and shoot three (5 times, total 15 rounds)
    7 yards, 5.0sec PAR: draw, fire one, reload, fire two (5 times, total 15 rounds)
    10 yards, 3.5sec PAR: draw and shoot three (5 times, total 15 rounds)
    15 yards, 5.0sec PAR: draw and shoot three (1 time, total 3 rounds)

    To finish out the 50 round box I'll often back up to 25+ yards and do 2 shots on the 3x5, pure precision no time limit.

    Not that .22 ammo is growing on trees, but I have found having a .22 top end for my 226R to be a really good thing for practicing DA/SA transitions.

    That's a good idea but in Indiana
    .22 ammo is as scarce as 9mm:-) .

    This thread has motivated me to brush the dust off an old P229 in 9mm that I haven't fired in years. It was acquired used and has Ashley Big Dot sights on it that I'd like to get rid of. Has anyone run the Warren sights on their Sig?

    I have a Warren rear, that I haven't yet installed, but I am led to believe it matches height wise with a factory front sight, or a Dawson that spec height. I have been replacing factory sights with Heinie, and have a set of Trijicon HD sights waiting to try.

    Scarcer, even. I can sometimes find 9x19, after all, but deuce-deuce is just flat gone.

    The Warren rears are about .03 taller than the #8 factory Sig rear. If you like your POI to be at the top of the post, this can help remedy the stock "behind the dot" point of impact Sigs come with these days. FWIW, I'm also running Heine's currently. My sample of a couple sets also print at the top the post at 20 yards.

    G,

    What width rear are you running?

    I'm seeing more .40, .38 Special, and .45 ACP in the Seattle Metro area than 9mm AND .22. I have no earthly idea why .22 is being hoarded by the panicistas, other than Jim Billy Bob going shopping for 9 mil, finding none, then saying "Hold my beer while I load up the cart on .22 for mah mall ninja tactical .22."

    Ok, so I'm mixing paraphrases, cultures, and demographics, but work with me...

    Best, Jon

    1) Seattle hipsters like .22 LR for self-defense?
    2) Stocking up on sub-sonic .22 for the suppressed 10/22s we can now shoot legally? (Really getting tired of marauding raccoons, and we've spotted coyotes in the neighborhood.)
