There was a web page that had a pistol sight adjustment chart. Had a long list of the various brands/types of handgun sights. Gave adjustment values and told you which direction to turn. Page is down now anyone have the chart?

Thought what you were looking for sounded like a good item, did my own search came up with this:
http://www.bullseyepistol.com/training.htm
I'm a noob so this is handy for me, maybe not so much for an experienced shooter.
Any input on the accuracy of the chart?

Sorry I'm not good enough to be giving advice. But since you asked:p, I noticed I'm the opposite of the chart. If I'm flinching(anticipating recoil) I tend to push the gun down.

The chart works for me, but that's because I shoot Bullseye. Do you shoot offhand?

The reason I ask is because different pistol disciplines have different stances and IMHO, that also affects trigger control, sight alignment, breathing, etc., etc.

I don't know how to answer your question, I'm right handed and right eye dominant.
I do plan on getting some firearms training (any suggestions on who or where? I'm in Sacramento) I have shot pistols before but it's been close to 8 years since I've shot one, currently 4 more days until I pick up my new pistol.
I figure I can go to the range take my time shooting and that chart might help me see what I am dong wrong, at least until I get some professional instruction.

I've only been to SacValley once, but I liked it. While there, I met 9MMEpiphany. He's a good teacher if you want to PM him. He'll show you how to shoot IDPA as opposed to Bullseye.

If you ever want to learn Bullseye and want to take the scenic route, drop me a line.

Have fun and congrats on your new purchase :)

Thanks I might take you up on that, I need a 1000 rounds thru the new gun first =)
I know about SacValley, but I need a lot of practice before I try that IDPA, I watched their youtube videos =)
