    Where does your Glock shoot?

    I've discovered after a couple of range sessions both inside and out, from 7 yards to 25 yards, mine definitely has POA sights.

    In fact, I nearly have to cover the bullseye completely to hit it.

    If thats a problem, put on a HIGHER rear sight.
    BUT...
    If you are using your pistol for CCW and Self Defense, I would not change anything. In the heat of the moment, most shooters generally tend to shoot
    a little high.
    (Most Self Defense situations are from point blank range to about 15 yds)

    All my Glocks are POA. I do prefer 6 o'clock on my 1911's with adj. sights though.

    So, are all Glocks POA with factory sights?

    I don't mind it, I just need to shoot it a lot to get used to it.

    Most "combat" type guns are POA. Six O'clock is more for target shooters who want to see the whole bullseye.

    The POI on my G22 and G23 is directly on top of the front sight. They both have AmeriGlo night sights (stock height) on them. My G17 has Vanek Custom (also stock height) target sights. Front is fiber and rear is black. It shoots low; POI is in the center of the fiber so I just ordered a taller rear. I want them all to have the same POI for consistency.
