Should this work? Distance is about 15 feet.
That's the way I always do it and I wind up within a few inches using the laser.
Although I set mine for around 40'. The length of the longest hallway in my home.
Then, using cheap target ammo, tweak the laser adjustments.
But always ......
Remember, final checks and adjustments with your laser should be done with your carry ammo.
You may be surprised at the difference in where the cheap stuff hits vs. the good stuff.
Edit: I should also mention that you should verify laser alignment every single time you replace the battery. It wouldn't hurt to check it periodically to make sure that it hasn't been knocked out of alignment.
And one final thought.
I had a friend bring his Glock to me because with the laser, it was hitting all over the place.
It turned out that he hadn't properly tightened the mounting screws.
(He was afraid of breaking something. )
Snugging up the screws fixed his problem.
