It depends on distance. Glocks are supposed to be sighted in for image 2 at 25 yards. When I can actually get my trigger control right, that's exactly how mine shoot.

Because of my bad trigger control, I tend to pull shots lower and start trending toward image 3 to compensate.

I prefer image 2, or point of aim shooting. You aim at where you want the bullet to hit which makes the most sense to me.

Image 1 is preferred by some and is referred to as a 6 o clock hold. This would be my 2nd choice and could be learned pretty easily, but I am just not used to it.

Image 3 is not anything I have ever seen or recognize---I would call it a "point and hope" method and I would personally avoid it (unless I was trying to hit the upper fourth of the target). Assuming you are trying to hit the center of the target, you have the bullseye completely covered which makes no sense whatsover.

You want to use image 2. At 50' you should be able to aquire a point of aim point of impact shot.

Did the OP switch the image locations after you started your reply? You have the descriptions reversed.

As already stated, I think you have #1 & #2 mixed up. Furthermore, unless you have adjustable sights, which factory glock sights do not, you have no choice.

This makes sense to me.

I used sight picture #3 at 15' and my shots where high. I began to compensate and each shot got better.



I used sight picture #3 again at 50' and all my shots were high again. It would seem that #2 is the correct sight picture to use for Glock factory night sights.



If you shoot Sig Pistols, sight picture #3 would be correct. The G23 is my first Glock.

I have the correct answer for you:

SIGHT IMAGE #1. This is the correct sight picture whent the target circle touches the top of the front sight. However, the size of your target (Circle Diameter) has to be adjust depending on the distance. So, here is the data in order for you to SHOOT DEAD CENTER AT THE CENTER OF THE CIRCLE:

Circle Diameter = 1" at 25 feet. 2" at 50 feet. 3" at 75 feet (25 yds.)
