We can argue proficency requirements but the bottom line is that after changing sights, the POI needs to be verified and adjusted so that POA=POI.
What I was trying to say is that he needs to go shoot it instead of worrying about micro adjustments (as long as it looks centered) and find out where he is grouping and go from there. Even then, if one is not proficient and is patterning low left...you don't go out and get a shorter front sight and drift the rear sight to the right...you work on your fundamentals.
I think we were just talking past each other.
