Mossberg 100 ATR. Only holds 4 rounds. I'm not sure if that's how they all are, or if that was what the law was in North Carolina when I bought it. Pretty good rifle for the price. .308 caliber.

S&W M&P 40C. Bought in Georgia. I really love this pistol. Currently trying to find a way and place to mount a holster for it on my half-length center console. Found one online for about $80. But that's a little too pricey. There is room on the back of the console for that holster that seems pretty concealed too.

So I have a question... The 40VE sigma series from S&W has horrible sight issues across the board, typically shooting low and left. Does your M&P have any sighting issues? I do realize that the sigma series are lower end, but the inaccuracy of the sights is horrendous at even fifteen feet.

Check it with a bore sight as Turd said. However, I am going to make a couple of assumptions here.

I am guessing you are towards the less experienced scale of shooting pistols which causes you to anticipate the recoil which the body causes you to aim a little low.. You are also right handed and you do not have the proper trigger press when you are squeezing the trigger causing the gun to jerk left when you squeeze back.

Sorry if I am wrong about any of this but just some assumptions as I said.

Factory magazine size is 4 rounds which is pretty much standard capacity for any internal mag bolt gun in .308

It is a common problem... The front sight on these is too tall. People have replaced the front sight with a glock aftermarket sight to solve the issue.

I just ordered a Reflex RDS + mount for it / my 715T...

I so seldom use it and it was cheap, though I'll probably end up switching to a glock sight...

Everyone who has shot my gun from 25 feet has hit the ground in front of the target... It's pretty bad.

Yes, check it with a bore sight. And then take it out, and shoot from a bench. And then have 2 or 3 other buddies shoot from a bench as well. The Sigma triggers are long and hard (chuckles) and often times shooters will not realize the effects of their trigger manipulation. If and only if you and all of your buddies groups are in the same spot, consistently, should you modify your sights.

As an IDPA shooter, I shoot about 1000-1500 rounds per month through my pistols, and it's very common to have someone say they need to adjust their sights, yet when I shoot their handgun, I do pretty well.

I haven't had any problems with them. I'm not the greatest pistol shooter like my mom is. She's the best shot I've ever seen, and I was the one I the marines lol. She shoots it great, pretty much leaves a 1" hole in the center of the target whether it be 10 rounds or 50 rounds.

Im gonna have to x2 this. Especially with a Sigma. Really tough trigger to master. A lot like a revolver. Just focus on smooth, consistent pressure.

The S&W sigma series does have a tough trigger to master. I thought the same thing when I bought one. Search Sigma trigger job on youtube...there are several videos. It takes a little fine sandpaper and about 45 minutes. It makes a big difference...way smoother. That and a little practice and you'll be surprised how accurate it can be.
