Sight question...
OK, first off, let me start this with a comment that I was right eye dominate until 4 years ago. Now I find I in my old age, that I am becoming more and more left eye dominate. I am right handed. I purchased a couple 9mm pistols and was going nuts with my shots being low and to the left. Part of the problem was trigger finger placement. That seems to have corrected the low part.

Yesterday I was at the range, and was pulling my RIFLE shots low and to the left. So I tried aiming about 8" to the right. Low and behold this corrected the problem. Should I adjust the iron sights a little to compensate? Also, part of the problem is the bipod was jerking to the right a little (a little skateboard tape on the bottom will fix that) with each shot.

Old age is a *****...

Kentucky windage!.... I would work on taking a relaxed shot first before adjusting my sights. Start with a close target (25-50 yards) and see where you hit. Move it out and check results again. It may not need adjusting
