I have a full-size M&P 9mm and I'm just wondering what the out of the box zeroed in distance is supposed to be for the gun?



Thanks in advance for any help

That's gonna vary somewhat depending upon your ammo selection. Rule of thumb, most pistols are point of aim/point of impact (dead on) to 2 inches or so high at about 25 yards. At closer ranges, the bullet tends to strike below the point of aim.

25 yards may be a little too far for a first time zero I suggest about 10-15 yards and as long as you have tight groups low move it back 5-10 more yards IMHO-Jason

Start as close as you have to to get a good group, then move it out. Remember that most gun fights are 7yds or less. :wink:

Most gungihts are going to be under 12 feet, POI/POA is irrelevant in a dynamically evolving situation. Say 2 inches high at 25 yrds, that would extrapolate to 1/4" or less at typical distances encountered on the streets.



Irrelevant to most if they have to use their weapon in a SD situation
