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 doesn’t 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 friend’s 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 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

Great targets and very nice range pic! Was the first 25 Meter targets part of a qualification?

That is a really nice range your club has...

You have to love the SIG P210... it makes a lot of average shooters look really good...

You have some really nice scores there too...

The bicycle is a 1994 Swiss military bike. Built like a tank.

Yes, the military shooting 20 rds is the compulsory qualifying for all soldiers (pistol or rifle) but is open to all including non military

The field shooting is also open to all

In both cases the Swiss Gvt provides the ammo for free

I have both a P210 pistol and a K31 carbine. Great weapons. I would love to have an STG 57.
