I actually sort of allude to that in the trigger pull section, but it isn't well defined. I added a chart and an additonal line or two to clarify. To be clear, I am not just trying to address sight picture. The post is an attempt to list the many things that may contribute to the "shooting low" issues that many newer shooters seem to have. My particular problem was dual (as I think it is with most folks who are new to shooting AND to Sig), I had the wrong sight picture and was yanking down.

All the time - when I aim low.

I know, you've all been waiting for it...

I don't shoot at golf balls on a string. I do at them on the ground and I can hit them a lot with my 320 compact and 938. Don't do this all the time only when someone leaves them at the range. Boy they can really fly when hit. They will sometimes go over the bunker and into the woods behind it.
320 at 15 yards or so. The 938 more then 10 yards.
I use the combat hold. Seems to be right on at these distances.

I shoot low when I'm feeling down. The cure is to buy a new gun. Then I can dump an entire mag in the ten circle.

I had a new P series pistol shoot consistently 4 to 6 inches low across several shooters and loads, called Sig CS and learned the numbering system for their sights, sent the slide to Sig and had CS replace the #6 rear sight for a #8, problem solved, cost of the new sight included labor, I found Sig CS very helpful and informative

For me, I shoot mostly 1911 pistols with adjustable sights and using the lollipop sight picture. shot this way for the first 30 years of shooting. When I got my first Sig, I may have cursed Sig up and down about shooting low and I was frustrated. I thought it stupid you had to cover the target, I mean, how could I hit what I couldn't see. After being educated on the Combat sight picture, it makes sense as to why it is used. But,that said, at 25 yards my P220ST 45 shoots dead on and my P320c 45 shoots 1" lower and both have #6 and #8 sights.

Unfortunately with Sig suppressor sights there is only one size and they are 6/8
If it's off Trijicon is the only option for 8/8 sights.

I bought a new p226 nice gun but using the combat sight hold it shoots low i know it might be me but that is the way i shoot I donít understand why sig quit selling the #9and 10 height sights. Seems like it would be good to be able tune the sights for the way a person shoots.I have seen this complaint in numerous forums about guns shooting low i just donít understand why they quit selling them. I donít want to put aftermarket sights on my gun when all i need is a #9 or 10 rear sight. If anyone knows a logical reason why they quit selling these sight please let me know

Logical? No, no good reason.

An XD rear sight fits the Sig dovetail and in my experience usually provides the right height difference to hit where you want to hit.

New Member here but not to Sigs. I have 3 pistols and a rifle. All this talk on sight picture raises a question which has come up around the campfire a few times.
In a defensive situation, (less than 7 yds), how important do you feel the rear sight is?
Do you train at this distance? Point shooting or sights?

Both point shooting and sights, although at less than 21 feet, point shooting may, if the target is fully visible, be the only real option due to time considerations.

Maybe a dumb question - has this always been the case? I have a late 90s p239 with contrast sites that seems to shoot with a "target" style hold

My P229 shoots 2 inches high at 10 yards... Had to buy the Meprolight Adjustable night sights. Problem solved.
