The six o’clock hold

Posted 06-30-2010 at 11:29 by Butch

It is all too apparent that there are a lot of people in the shooting world that know of the ‘six o’clock hold’, but don’t really understand its use or purpose.

For most uses handgun sights should be adjusted so that point of aim is equal to point of impact. In other words, the projectiles should hit the target at a spot right at the top center of where the gun’s front sight is seen on the target. Like this:

Select a target that gives you a specific, repeatable point of aim and is easy for you to see without having to focus your vision on it, this is important because your visual focus needs to be on your sights….not your target, a 25 yard bullseye pistol target works well. It does not have to be posted at 25 yards, 15 or 20 yards works fine if your ability to shoot a group isn't (yet) up to doing it at 25 yards.

Aim at the bottom edge of the black, a ‘six o’clock hold’. That way you know...
