Hey Gun People

I have a 9mm Beretta. Problem is my sites are way off. It always shoot low and to the left. Anyway, I have a friend that can take care of the left to right problem by sliding the rear site over. Problem is the front site needs to get an adjustable installed to correct the up and down problem.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to get?

I thought about going laser, but I'm afraid it may take some of the fun out of shooting it.

Whatchya think?

I have tried two different guns with laser sights and IMO it does take the fun out of it for short range pistol shooting. It will also spoil your aim on regular sights.

Anything that puts the lead where I want it is OK with me. Trouble with lasers is the need to constantly adjust them. The recoil seems to knock off the sighting after a few rounds. At least it did on the model I had. Now I have it mounted on a Daisy Co2 BB gun for agrivatin' the varmints.

Crazy, are you left handed?

Try this balance a dime on the front sight and pull the trigger if it falls off more then likely your pulling the trigger to hard. UNLOADED just in case I needed to say this. Fixed rear sight, huh?

nahh brians beretta shoot way down and left.

if i was you get the trinitron(sp?) sights, you know the ones that glow in the dark for 10 years cause its radio active...my TRP operator came with them , and my god i LOVE them!

but you need a SMALLER (in height) front sight, i would try a 140 size front if i were you.

i could go on and on and right a book, but a laser help find your target faster, IT DOESNT hit pin point all the time, if you tune it for 21 feet, and shoot at 35 your going to be inchs off. a lazer is to punch shoot.

hope that helps.

I have the trinitron on there now. I need to go smaller and maybe even adjustable in the front. I was hopin' somebody could give me a link to check some stuff out.

BTW: Tony. and I already fixed the glasses

in that case, get a smaller front and kick the REAR right...it will bring your shots to the right.
