That explains some of my frustration at the range the other day.Unfortunately, with 6.1mm, that combat picture picture is at like 5yds (or less). Go to 25yds and it will be 12 O'Clock and the clock maybe mounted pretty high on the wall..
I think you may be misunderstanding it. We don’t WANT to use a “combat sight picture,” but if that’s where the factory sights are, then that’s what you have to do.I see. -JCN-'s illustrations helped. In 37 years as a pistol instructor, among lots of other things, I've never seen that taught in the real world. I don't expect to start teaching it...ever.
This is exactly what we are talking about. Some guns FROM THE FACTORY are set up with sight height stagger so that if you use your preferred Type II hold, you’ll be shooting low.If there is some problem that prevents your gun from hitting where the top center of the front sight is, that a completely different problem, unrelated to my question about some new fashion in tactical sight pictures. Time to adjust your sights (all sights can be adjusted).
