    He's a pretty darn good shot, anybody know who he is? Is he a famous competitive shooter that I just haven't heard of? The epic music just adds to the awesomeness. I found the video cause I'm in the market for a new carry gun and the SP2022 is on the short list for it. The chicks a pretty good shot too.

    I guess it's all in your perspective. I saw a younger, slimmer fellow.

    Keep the 2022 on your short list. It's a first rate shooter.

    I liked the one I bought last year enough to make it my carry gun, for what that's worth.

    That's good to know considering how much you like your Sigs. The hammer fired DA/SA bug has bitten me. I know holster choices are pretty slim though for the sp2022, I'm told XD 4" model holsters will fit the sp2022 though.

    Point shooting from the hip is actually quite difficult and takes tons of repetitive practice. The other difficult skill display was shooting on the move. Very, very hard to do ... try it some time. The key thing is try to square your shoulders to the target and sort of crabwalk sideways with your legs.

    Nice Video, but I'll take a Sig 220/225/226/228/229 or p210 over any plastic framed handgun. I've BTDT, having owned multiple polymer-framed HKs, Glocks, Walthers, Steyrs. My all-metal p226 is the only gun I've owned that has never, ever had a failure, and it has over 10,000 rounds through it. I've tried the Sig 2022. Trigger sux.

    Why, does the music get better?

    Oh I see! :thumbsup:

    Watched the rest, suppressed in the dark, with a laser, and a fog machine.

    Then I think Superman took a turn with it.

    The sigpro series of guns are sleeper Sigs. They don't get a lot of credit but they are good. Their grips are a little big so if you have smallish hands you might want to hold one before you buy.

    I like how in the vid the old guy is making hits al day long with his finger hooked on the trigger guard. Everyone knows you can't shoot well like that.

    I bet this guy started his training using a mirror and his fingers as an awkward teenager. Get him on video, and he'd be the Star Wars Kid all over again.

    Yup. Just about all of the 4" XD holsters will work.

    Exactly the opposite of my conclusion, the trigger was very smooth with a crisp break.

    That was my point, you don't have to be young and fit to be a bad mofo with a pistol.

    His facial expressions were awesome as well.
