    Simply stated: Does your pistol shoot low? One of the problems with the 1st generation P-3AT and P-32 was that they tended to shoot about 5-6" low at 5 yards. Are you seeing something similar?

    The addition of my P-Sight corrected this Point Of Aim / Point Of Impact problem on those guns, in addition to providing an improved sight picture. I thought that it was also corrected in the 2nd generation guns. However, I've heard from a few folks that this is not the case. Messing up the POA/POI is one of the reasons I haven't made a P-Sight for the 2nd generation, for fear it would make the guns shoot too high. If low POI is common with these guns though, I may have to re-think things.

    Please let me know either way! Tell me which gun you have, and what kind of POA/POI you're getting from it at normal defensive distances (5 yards or so.)

    And, many thanks to all you KTOGgers for your kind words, warm wishes, and support over the years! It is appreciated more than you know.

    I put glow in the dark paint on mine (green rear and orange front) and at 7 yards and in IF I AM DOING MY PART it shoots fine. When I am less deliberate with the trigger pull or let my hand move during the pull I always shoot low. That's my personal experience, hopefully other will weigh in.

    My G1 P32 shoots POA if I do my part ;) I actually like it's "sights" better than my G2 P3AT's.

    I applied fluorescent orange Testor model paint to my front sight and fluorescent green Testor model paint to my rear sights. My P3AT shoots right where I point it.

    I had a P32 and currently own a P-3AT both shoot POA with no modification of the sights. I'm amazed at how well they shoot if I do my part.

    I installed a CT laser before I shot it my G2. Never had a problem, never made an adjustment. Still going strong working on 700 rounds.

    I added a Armalaser to my P3-AT and PF-9. At my age all sights suck. These are keyed in a 7 yards and hold anything I need them for, strictly self defence :cool:. If I want to go on the offence I'll use my Saiga 12. >:(
