I seem to hit high when shooting Indoor but I am dead on Outdoors.
Here is my theory: Due to artificial lighting which is not sufficient,the front sight is "fuzzy" so you can't see the far edge, therefore bringing it up more then necessary to line up with the rear changes POI by about 1-2 inches at 25 yards.

Anyone else experience this?

I suggest trusting your well chosen pistolsmith:) I know of at least one who seems to shoot POA/POI indoors and out. :lol:

I know it is a serious question but no I have not had that problem. But then again I seldom shoot over 25 yards and to be honest seldom do I shoot groups over 15 hand held, so I don't see a POI change from POA. I use a single 45 or 9mm bullet hole as an aiming point though. I do remember having little difficulty hitting those 8" plates from 50 yards out to 100 or 200 either.

I do my best shooting indoors with the shooter in the dark and the target in full bright light. Elimates any sight misalignment becase of shadowns of glare of the sights.

Shay,
I get the same results shooting at my outdoor rage depending on time of day/position of the sun in the sky. Doesn't sound all that far fetched that the POI changes. I would be more inclined to think it was the way the certain lights reflect on the sights rather than how you line them up.

Of course I saw your attempt at checkering so maybe lining it up is your problem :smile:
Ok sorry about that but I just had to, I'm done for the day:)

Shay, that's why Bullseye shooters have a range book and note sun position, indoor lighting, wind, et. and have adjustable sights. It all about shooting X's & tens. I know I should make more of an effort to do so, but then I'm putting an Ultra Dot on my Marvel and take the bifocals out of the equation :grin:

It's the weight of the sunshine pushing your bullet and POI down more, when you are outside. Artificial indoor light doesn't weigh as much, so POI is higher inside the range. :wink:

Nooo...He lives in FLORIDA!!!


...It's the AIR that's heavier outside and holds that POI on target;)
Of course...livin' in the frozen tundra, you wouldn't know that...
