JEFF JOHN Q: Sight Height All of your handgun articles have the accuracy tests at 25 yards. How do you guys keep your groups in the black at that distance? My two firearms, an FNP-40 and KelTec P11 are already shooting 3" to 4" low at 10 yards. At 25 yards I’d be off the paper. Do you adjust your pointof-aim by holding high or am I the only one with low-shooting pistols? direction. On many modern pistols, it is easy to change the front sight to adjust elevation issues. Before you call the factory, though, have a friend shoot the pistol and see if he shoots it low, too. For the FN, call the company at (800) 322-4626 and talk with a technician about the problem. Because the FNP sights are in dovetails, the point of impact can be adjusted by changing the height of the front sight. As for the KelTec, the firm offers a sight kit for the P11 (part No. P155) consisting of three rear and two front sights of different heights you can mix and match to adjust point of aim. Upgrading to an adjustable sight may be worthwhile. Because both .40 S&W and 9mm ammo come in a wide variety of bullet weights, you can adjust the windage and elevation easily if you enjoy shooting the full spectrum of available ammo. On the other hand, if your handguns are primarily for self-defense, and you’ve settled on just one or two 9mm and .40 S&W loads proven accurate and reliable in your pistols, it would make sense to adjust the the fixed sights so your guns shoot where you’re aiming. If you have a concealed weapon permit, fixed sights are generally more easily concealed and less prone to snagging on the draw. FNH USA P.O.

We try to give the writers enough time to solve such problems before deadline. Windage is simple to adjust as a rule by just tapping the rear sight in the correct several marked .223, I asked the dealer if he had any with a 5.56 chamber. He told me the .223 and 5.56 were identical. When I tried to explain the difference, the dealer looked at me like I had three heads. Then, I read Glen Zediker’s article (Sept. 2012 issue) on the difference between the .223 and the 5.56. An excellent column, I wish all gun dealers would read and be better informed on such matters.
