Where is the point of impact for you?

So I have been using a 6:00 hold for many if not all of my pistols, but when I shot my Kimber out of the box, it shoots low with that method.

So I experimented with it more and saw that it's more set up for a Combat or Frame Hold... Image 3

Although I prefer a 6:00, I'll just adapt to it. It does so with 158 and 125 grain 357 Magnums.

Mine shoots low as well. I modified my hold a bit, held sight image 2, and it helped, but the basic POI is low. I should point out that my groups are quite good, just low.

Even at 25 yards, I find that the sights are still frame hold for me. I have to see how I do at 50 yards.

However since I'm good to 25 yards. It is now part of my carry routine.

It usually depends on the weight of the bullet. In 38 cal. my 158 gr. will allow me a 6:00 hold on a standard bullseye at 30'. The 125 gr. will shoot a bit low.
Start all over when you put in some .357's

Yep, mine are frame hold (image 3) as well. I was always taught to use the 6:00 hold on everything, pistol or rifle. I prefer being able to see the POI that comes with the 6:00 hold or top-of-post with most firearms. Perhaps the frame hold eliminates some of the distance guesswork by putting the white dot on target.

Hmm, I just bought one and been to the range once. Exact experience with me. I'll adapt and be completely satisfied.

One thing I do before I shot is use a laser bore sighter to determine where the theoretical point of impact will be at different distances.

That is how I determined my gun was sighted. I don't like to waste bullets. So I typically do this will all of my handguns before I put a round in to shoot.

I use a green laser since I can see it out to 25 yards.

Depends on the knife.

If I'm toting a Bradford in 3V (and who wouldn't) I slash across any part of the throat. No matter what he's wearing, I'll get a good slice on the jugular.

If I have a TOPS tanto, I'll hold the knife in an Escrima style, puncture the leg, turn the knife 180 degrees and slash out of the wound. Even a blind guy hits the femoral artery.

There are other (and surprising ancient) points of contact. But I really haven't had the chance to buy that USGladius Thraex...
