WxGuy, you said in the first post that you had:
"the .150T x .125W front red F/O. I found the .180T recommended front height was still shooting too low for the way I operate."

And then in a later post...

Which front sight height did you end up liking best, the .150T or .160T? And which width, .125W or .100W (presumably still matched to your .125W notch all-black Dawson rear sight)?

I have found the .150T the best overall sight for me. The .160T was great at 60' but anything closer it shot a little low. I really prefer a 6 o'clock hold and like to see where the impact point is just over the top of the front sight. The farther out the target with the .150, the lower one must aim. As aggressive as I am with my left hand (weak side), I have a tendency to pull the gun down just a bit for this to work. My weak side index finger is wrapped around the front of the trigger guard making for a very secure grip. So my setup is the .150T x.125w mated with the .125w rear; all Dawson. Along with the DPM recoil assembly, makes for one accurate pistol on the clock. I'm very pleased with the results of my last match!!

Hope you find this information useful,
Bob

Here's what that Dawson sight setup helped me do this weekend at our local Tier 1 IDPA match:

Overall= 1st out of 40.
Most accurate
High SSP
Won 2 of 3 stages
Won the Division, SSP/SS
1st on all SS (sharpshooters)

Lots of dry firing, lots of practice, it all adds up! The Dawsons work!!!

It is time to leave and shoot in the 2015 Alabama IDPA State championship!

I had a great weekend local match and a real good practice yesterday. The range is fully utilized making no available warm-up area so I might jog down to the creek and run the gun a bit before loading into the RV. I'll post how the match went after I return! Go-PPQ-Go!

The 2015 IDPA Alabama State Championship is in the books!

I ended up 13th in SSP/SS. Not bad for my first time out in the big matches. Lots of room for me to improve but that is what practice is all about! The PPQ ran flawlessly and was spot on when I did my part. The best part was the SOs asking what kind of gun it was! They went "WOW" when I told them. It was a long 12 stage day in the mud and I made a lot of new friends. Time to ready for the next match!

hey guys, not to thread jack just wanting some site advice from expert shooters i am looking to keep my picture at either num2 or num3 in this link
pistol-training.com Blog Archive Sight Picture

i am not a competition shooter, just a weekend warrior and plinker, that said most of my shots are probably 30 to 75ft. i am also interested in the dawson sites, just looking for a recommendation on the sizes to get to achieve that sight picture, right now the gun shoots with the num2 site picture, poi.

also on their website it lists all the rear heights as 210 and says you need a 180t front? is this just their suggestion

I managed to take 5th in SSP/SS this year at the Iowa IDPA Championship. Also my first major match. And I took video!

zackbremer:

The .210'' tall rear with a .180'' tall front SHOULD have the same impact as your stock sights since they are both the same height. You just have to determine how much air you want between the notch and post.

If you want to lower your impact go with the .195'' front sight as that is slightly taller than the stock front. I have both a .195'' and 180'' Dawson so you know.

Am thinking of getting the 5" PPQ M2 and was wondering if it is legal for IDPA in SSP? Specifically I am talking about this with regard to the ports on top of the gun? Does that kick you into ESP or is it legal with regard to rule(s) 8.2.1.4 SSP Excluded Modifications (Non-Inclusive list):

8.2.1.4.8 Compensated/ported firearms with non-compensated/ported barrels installed.
