How do you think I got those two in the bulls-eye? The two just above it, I had the sights up just above the target (and completely off the paper)Aim higher
I would, but then that leaves me with no pistol at home. Going to wait on the PT111MP to get back from Miami, and then maybe I will think about it.send it back mine did the same thing came back with new barrel slide and recoil spring still wasn't perfect but was better
Will do!! Thanks!As I recall the rear sight elevation only has 2-3 clicks then cam resets to lowest. You might try grinding some off top of front sight. I've also heard mention that Taurus has a lower front sight for the Slims - might call and ask.
Yup, agree that accuracy is good enough for a pocket pistol. I am probably going to be using it at close ranges (less than 10 feet) if I ever have to use it. However, it would be nice to get shots consistently in the bulls-eye at 15 feet. I can do it with all of my other handguns. Kinda re-assuring more than anything I think. As hard as it is to find ammo, 124 is pretty impossible to find in my neck of the woods.Finally, the accuracy you achieved is good enough for the purpose of this pistol. More accuracy is generally better but speed (smooth is fast) is probably more important.
One thing if you turn two turns you reset the sight. It only has about one full turn before reset so you have to be careful about that. You can order a shorter front sight from Taurus too that will raise point of impact. For a defensive gun that's not a bad target, pretty much a kill.So, went to the range and there was another gentleman there shooting a bunch of guns (Glocks, Desert Eagles and a .454 Casull Taurus, to name a few!). Turns out the guy works in LE and spends a ton of time at the range. Shoots upwards of 10K rounds a year. Perfect. I asked him if he would mind shooting my 709, as I seemed to keep shooting low after 125 rounds. Same problem in his hands too. Way low, but a nice tight group. He said it was nice gun, and also gave me a ton of tips to correct my technique and how to shoot better. Heck, the guy even used his own ammo to shoot and check the sights. Wayyyy low at 15 feet and less.
Unfortunately, there was a class scheduled there, and I had to leave the range. Do you think I should send this pistol back to Taurus for the sights issue? I tried adjusting the sights and gave the screw a good two whole turns, but still low. How many turns is too many turns?
Here is my 2nd target from this morning:

All low. Notice the top left, under the bar-code, I was aiming for that at about 15 feet, but no luck.
