Sight Picture On New SA XD-40SC
Purchased a new SA XD-40 SC, took it to the range and groups were low, 2 inches low at 15 feet and about 5-6 inches low at 30 feet.
I purchased a LaserMax Laser Sight and installed it and when lining the target up with the sights the laser was low the same amout as stated above.
I was taught to have the sight picture with all three dots in line with the center dot evenly spaced between the two rear sights, with the bullseye sitting on top of the front sight, and that is how I shot and got the results above both with the sights and with the laser.
I adjusted my sight picture to where the front sight dot is evenly spaced between the rear sight dots and sitting just above to form a pyramid with the bullseye sitting on top of the front sight and gun sights, laser and shot group are dead on at both 15 & 30 feet.
I'm just wondering why I have to mess up my sight picture to get the weapon to hit what I'm aiming at?
