SIG Sauer Ammunition was introduced last year with initial, single-weight bullets for each caliber and the promise of additional weights as the product line matured. For the .45 ACP line, the 200-grain bullet has been joined by a lighter 185-grain counterpart.

With the SIG V-Crown cartridge, this new .45 ACP ammunition has the same stacked, hollowpoint-bullet design,coated brass case and low flash propellant as the extant line, but in a lighter weight. This 185-grain weight allows greater velocity and lower recoil than the heavier bullet, meaning faster followup shots while keeping similar energy at the muzzle.

Given the great performance verified in our testing of SIG Sauer ammunition, this new .45 ACP fodder should function just fine with any modern handgun. Of course, it's always a good idea to test any ammunition you're intending to use for self-defense with its intended firearm, but with the SIG track record behind it, there should be little question about whether it will work or not.

MSRP: $24.67.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
