    Are you asking about pistol or rifle sights? Also, are your sights adjustable for both windage and elevation?

    Usually , sinasabay ko na sa draw practice at chrono kasi nagtitipid
    Hit 3 birds w/ one shot kumbaga
    Draw and fire thru the chrono at an 8 inch plate at 50 yards
    Minsan condition 2 naman
    or
    sit down on he floor lean you back against a wall, raise you knees and ipitin mo your hands and gun between you knees. Instant ransom rest
    I zero mine , 8 inch plate at 50 yards cause I could never hit a good group at 25m. Dont know why , Labo mata eh

    Sorry, nothing to do with sighting. Just wanted to inquire where you bought your Truglo TFO sights and for how much. Cuase I've been looking for one for sometime already and can't find one for my G17. Would appreciate any info. Thanks.

    personal preference ang pag "zero". although majority doon sa Brian Enos Forum, many of whom use 1911 and 2011 style pistols with adjustable rear sights, zero their sights dead center (point of aim = point of impact) at 15 meters. some zero at 25, 35, and 50 meters, but not as many as those who use 15 meters.

    most stock/production pistols with fixed sights shoot 2-3 inches higher from point of aim. that is, if your point of aim is roughly at 6 o'clock position, the point of impact will be somewhere at the target's center. try ninyo with diff. pistols like the glocks, cz's, jerichos. hk's etc.

    you have to learn where your shots go at different distances (5, 10, 15, 20, 25 meters) and at different poa's (6 o'clock or dead center, etc.).

    Zero at 15m tapos confirm every 10m out to 50. Sometimes slight windage adjustments are needed pag dating sa 25 out kahit "zero" na sa 15. ;)

    This was explained to me by a police sniper before. With iron sights, your eyes are sometimes deceived by distance. Sometimes, at 50m, you seem to be aiming at the same point at the target you see at 25m but actually are aiming somewhere else so you think you're zero is the same at those 2 distances. In my case, I'm usually aiming at a higher point on the target the farther it is. So our eyes play a big role in zeroing our guns. My gun could be zeroed in with me but when I hand it to someone else, he may not hit the target in the same spot I do.
