This is my second pocket pistol. My first is a LCP. The BG feels alot better in the hand and handles the recoil better. But I noticed that I keep getting the same results. The guns shoot low. Not sure what I'm doing wrong I align the front sight with the rear, but it still shoots low. I have to aim at the head in order to hit center mass. Is this normal?
    Did you try with the laser?

    I'd try just point-shooting with the pocket pistol.

    What kind of distance are we talking about....personally, I wouldn't go further than 7 yds...pocket pistols are for up-close-and-personal distances....
