I had a chance to take my new SR22 pistol to the range today, and the rear sights are all the way down (to bring group up) and it still shoots a little low. at 7 yards im still a little low. Im new to shooting, and with nobody to teach me anything i had hoped a range membership would help me find someone to give me a few pointers, but all i can find are people who out shoot me and laugh.

If the rear sight moves up, it is like moving the front of the gun down, which will create a lower grouping.

Hmmm...methinks you ought to test that theory.

Glad you got it figured out! Did it get POI where you wanted it? I think you'll really like the Ruger. Mine has been alot of fun!

Yes, I did 5 shot groups at 7 yards, and sighted it so the center of the group is where I am aiming. now I just need to tighten my groups. Any advice so I do not develop bad habbits? At 7 yards I average about a 3" group with the whole 10 round mag. at 25 yards they are all on a target the size of a dinner plate. My groups are taller than wide, mostly lower than higher.

Practice, practice, practice! You'll tighten those groups up as time goes by. Nice thing about 22, ammo is reasonable enough to allow lot's of shooting.Concentrate on the sight picture as you steadily squeeze the trigger. You'll be surprised how much better your groups get after a little time and a few boxes of ammunition! Good luck! Never be shy about coming here for information. I've learned a lot on this site, and still learning!

You might have to raise that rear sight just a little bit more. I had to raise mine quite a bit from where it was to bring it up where i wanted to be.

There was another guy at the range who asked to shoot it so I watched to see how someone who knows what they are doing shoots, and he shot a gtoup of 10 that could not be seen if you put a quarter on top of it. he said it was sighted perfect so I left it where it was at that time.

That is the answer to getting smal groups -- practice, practice, practice!!!!!
