zero them in?
dont adjust your sights to your fallacies of your trigger control and grip.
I agree. But there are many who feel that compensating is not a bad thing. To me it seems like a sort of "cheating". But I had this very discussion with an expert marksman who disagreed. His contention was that a pistol is a personal piece of equipment and it should be adjusted to suit the owner. He used golf equipment as his analogy.
No one considers it "cheating" to use clubs that compensate for too much fade (slice) or too much draw (hook). So it was his belief that you use what works for you. While I disagreed, I can see his point. I don't need to agree. There's no right or wrong, just different approaches. If results are the most important thing, does it matter how they are achieved? Different people will answer this differently.
I personally think it's better to work on improving technique rather than working past it by compensating through the use of adjusting sights to "improve" poor marksmanship. But in the end, I can understand his alternative viewpoint....and that is simply that the end results are what matters. Be it for self defense or even (maybe especially) competitive target shooting.
Of course it's more ideal IMO to be able to pick up a properly sighted gun and be accurate with it as opposed to needing your own gun that a shooter with better technique would find poorly sighted.
A perfectly sighted gun will be perfectly sighted for every shooter. A gun sighted to compensate for one's specific needs is only going to work for that person.
But the interesting question becomes; what is ultimately a better thing? Good technique with less consistency, or poor technique with greater consistency. For a target shooter, I guess more consistency would yield better end results if you can compensate by adjusting sights to overcome poor technique......If you can put 10 rounds through one hole but always be low and left (for example) you could in theory adjust the sights to get all your shots dead center. If you have better technique and can put your shots closer to dead center to start with, but you are less consistent, and your groups are more spread out, then in a competition the guy who "cheats" using the adjustable sights to compensate will come out on top.
Just anther way of looking at the issue. Right or wrong? Who's to say? I guess it depends on what is important. Immediate results, Or working on slowly improving so you can shoot anyone's gun and not just your own that's set up to correct your weakness. ...poor trigger control, or whatever the problem may be.
