    Guys,
    I was wondering how close to dead on your sights are? I'm just trying to get a general idea. Are you 1" high and 1" right or what? 4" low and 2" left? Dead on? Lets say at 7 yards. Thanks for humoring me :)

    Sights....I didn't realize there were sights ;D

    point shooting works good enough to get the body of a copperhead at 3 paces

    My sites were pretty dead on at that distance if you can keep the pistol steady enough. I suppose a rest would provide more accurate (tighter groups) results though.

    Old eyes and very marginal sights led to use of an Armalaser. At 7 yards it hits about 1 inch over the laser dot. With this zero it is accurate out to 50 ft. which is as far as I have shot it. I'm a big believer in lasers.

    This is the first target shot with my P-3AT.  I gave it a pretty thorough F&B and painted the front sight prior to shooting.

    Target was 7-8 yards and shots were fired about half 2 handed and half 1 handed at a rate of 1 shot per second for each magazine full.  Three different kinds of ammo.  Not one hickup.

    I'm not sure mine came with sights either, that's why I got a CT laser.

    Mine is off to the right consistently. 7 yards bench rested will put the group over near the 7 ring.

    That is a quarter nestled in the group produced at 21 feet with my CTC equiped 3AT.

    Is your (tight like a tiger) group from a rest or off hand? Austin Powers humor anyone:)
     
  11. No rest- two hands.....both eyes on the red dot on the black dot. The focus is one trigger control.

    Slow squeeze and mid breath hold will result in bullseye. I've even nailed dead center when coming from pointing towards floor going for a double tap, this beening the first round center with second pie plate out but still on target. The range master and I are very impressed with the p3at ;D or the shooter.

    I can not brag like the other posters but I'll give you my experience. Remington FMJ green/white boxes shot about 1" higher than Winchester WB ammo. This was at the 7 yard line.

    Mine is grouping about 3/4" right and about 1 1/2" high with Remington ball ammo. It seems a lot of the groupings are to the right. I wnder if it could be from squeezing through the shot?

    When I first purchsed mine it was about 4" right and about 6" low from sights. I added armalaser and dialed it in to near perfect 2" to 3" groupings. I've been real happy. :)

    I can't wait to see how the one that I'm looking at buying will shoot.
