Help with sights

I have a new m400 OD Green . It is shooting low {6 O clock} How do you adjust the rear sight or do you lower the front.

Are you sure your not just finching or failing to use proper trigger control: slow steady pressure straight to the rear, careful so as to not disturb your correct right alegnment/sight picture and achieve a surprise break!

I can relate

I noticed this the first time I shot. I was consistently low and left and sometimes missing all together. I thought the sites might be off but after talking to a friend who is in the military and familiar with shooting handguns he assured me that it was probably me-and that learning to accurately shoot handguns takes time and practice-and good practice at that. As mentioned above try to focus on a smooth, straight back trigger pull and also try not to overcompensate for the recoil. I'm still learning but from what I have heard/read that is more often than not the culprit

I seem to shoot low and left with handuns as well. I am pretty well on with rifles and 12g slugs, but I cant hit jack with my pistols. I have a P229 in .40 and a CZ75 P01 in 9mm, probably less than 1.5k rounds between them both, so I am relatively new to handguns. I shoot low/left with both of them, very consistently. Besides fun and the eventual hunting, training to get better is why I shoot.

You adjust the front sight for elevation. You do this by depressing a small pin with a FMJ Bullet or anything that will depress it and turn the front sight post to the left, counterclockwise, up to move the bullet point of impact down on the target or turn it to the right, clockwise, down to move the bullet point of impact up on the target.

I remember back in my Army days we had a certain number of rounds to battle sight zero our rifles during qualification.
