When do you move sights?
I've shot over 200 rds through my Glock G40 (long slide 10mm) now, and I am consistently shooting left of POA. I've thought about moving the sights, but decided to focus on form first.
The "wheel" tells me left POI is a result of too little trigger finger, but I'm about out of finger to put across the trigger. Getting more of my finger across the trigger did help....it did move the shots to the right from where they were, but it doesn't bring them fully to POA.
When I see deviation in elevation, I can always track that to a grip/form issue, but the pistol seems to consistently shoot left for me.
When do you move the sights, and when do you dig in and try to fix it with form?
I've actually been shooting into a berm at 50 yards for form work.....working on developing some sort of consistency to start focusing on what I'd call an anchor in archery....how my grip is on the gun, points of contact to make sure I'm making, etc so that my grip/form can be repeated shot to shot.
When I'm making what I call as super clean shots...not squeezing on the shot, not anticipating, but good, clean, shots....they land bang on for elevation, but at 50 yards, they're hitting 4-5" left of POA consistently. A good 5 shot string into the berm today at 50 yards was staying in 6". I'm no competition pistol shooter, so for me that's an improvement. But consistently to the left. I know I could adjust the sights and bring them on target.....just not sure when it's time to do that. I don't know what else to look for in form...but am open to suggestions!
