    I shoot at 25 yards but not very much. Lots of 50 and some 100, though.

    I do, almost every range session, 50 yards and plinking at 100 yard steel too.

    Police Academy in 1980. We did the old NRA PPC on a B 27?
    7 to 50 and 24 of the 50 rounds of 38 Wadcutters were at the 50.

    If you use factory Glock sights and put the front sight ball in the sight picture the front sight is actually higher than parallel with the rear notch. If you line up the front even with the top of the rear only about 1/2 the dot is visible. This could explain the high shots
