i got a bunch of guns so some dont get used too often, like my glock 17. i participated in an action pistol shooting yesterday and i was absolutely terrible. (and i am not the worst shot, i managed to get the NRA pistol license). i was always way low.... so half the time i didnt even hit paper! how embarrasing! so today i went to the range with a bench rest and was determined to find out how i, or the gun, screwed up.
it came down to this (all at 10 yards). this is the sight picture i was using, and this is what is shown in the glock manual:
however, i would be low every time (at least 5 to 10 inches). in order to hit with anything resembling consistency i had to modify the sight picture to that the front sight's circle would have to 'stick out on top' of the rear sight's U and then have the point of impact right over the front sight.
is this normal? other glocks have the same issue?
