Why does Glock do that? :crying:
Just aim at the neck.That explains some of my frustration at the range the other day.
Was going to leave it unmolested, in case of resale. But who am I kidding, I’m never going to sell it.
I have a spare set of agent sights that are going on as soon as I get home from work....
On my G42 and G43, the Glock Night Sights are regulated perfectly POI=top of the blade, at least at the ranges I use them.I swapped my Trijicons I had on my G22.3, I'll go to the range tomorrow and see what happens. Sucks though I thought the Glock night sights would be gtg and I wouldn't have to buy anything else for it.
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.If you take one of your G17's, install a 6.1mm rear sight and go shoot it, you will know right away the difference between POI/POA and what some call "covered hold" or "combat hold".
I am not sure where it came from.
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.

I'm not sure how having a pistol that own't hit point of aim has anything to do with that I said. I was talking about a deliberate choice to use the dots on the sights and to sight your gun so that the POI is the center of the dot, rather than the center of the top edge, as it came from the factory.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.
How can you not teach it if that’s the way the student’s pistol sights?
I prefer a Type II sight picture, but I prefer to hit my target...
Here’s a brain teaser for you.
A G31 uses a 6.9mm rear sight. But a G22 uses a 6.5mm rear sight.
So what happens when you put a G31 conversion barrel into a G22 and don’t change the sights...
Hint, the POI changes and you better change your sight picture if you want to hit where you want to hit....
One size does not fit all. IMHO, the best instructors are open minded!
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).
