So I bought a Taurus Tx22 competition. It seems like a very good pistol. It is cut for optics
And comes with plates for multiple models. I am not impressed with the iron sights at all.
So I had a Sig Romeo zero that was on a pistol I do not shoot as often, so I mounted it up
Very nice fit, plates are very good quality. Took it to the range and started shooting. Was
Shooting very high, was aiming center mass, was hitting middle of head. Ran out of adjustment
About the chin, neck area. So I guess I need to shim? What do I use to shim? Can I use like
A piece of paper, or do I need to find some shim stock. Paper is around .004 thick, dont know
How much .004" is going effect poi. Otherwise the pistol shoots great, shot really nice groups
So I assume will just get better. I have ordered a trigger and spring.

Didn't think about that, been many a shims made from cans, lol.

In the Air Force I was a seismic technician,,,
I once repaired and brought into specifications,,,
A $50,000 seismic instrument that was well over 60 years old,,,
With a shim I made from a piece of an old rusty steel Budweiser can.

I got a "Meritorious Service Award" for that,,,
The award stated I had saved the AF considerable money.

That was back in 1975 or 76,,,
I'll bet that instrument is still cooking away.
