Shoots high

I have a friend who has a KimberGrand Raptor 2 that he says has always shot high. Has adjustable sight but can't get it shooting lower. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Lot of different factors. What ammo is being used...try some different brands, bullet weights. What distance is he shooting at? What sight picture is he using? Is this pistol new, used? Has your friend Bubba Smith' on it?

We're gonna need more information.

My whole take on this issue, having owned lots of fixed sight pistols is that the pistol doesn’t shoot, the shooter does. So once the shooter has discovered the pistol’s point of impact, the shooter should adjust their point of aim to hit where they want...or, as wisely suggested by Shootinit, in a self defense situation just aim at the belly button, a few times making adjustments if necessary.
Shootinit and wayne like this.

Note: The discontinued Grand Raptor II was a Two-Tone full size with black slide and silver frame with "Adjustable Rear Sight."
