CZ 75 B Sight Picture Question

Hey All,
Got my new CZ 75B (which I LOVE) and took it to the range over the weekend. I was fairly decent with shot placement, but I was wondering if anyone could dial me in on how the sight picture should look. All three dots on a horizontal straight line? Or the front dot up a bit? Maybe I need to bench rest it and take some slow easy shots.
Thanks!!
BTW, I was at about 10 yards....

At that range I keep the three dots in a line.

Dot alignment doesn't always work when target shooting and trying to achieve small groups. Try aligning the sight post and notch flats... as if the dots weren't there. You can temporarily black out the whites with a dry erase marker if you have a hard time ignoring them.

I've had a BD for years, and I highly recommend you at least get a fiber optic front sight. The gun is fantastic but needs better sights. Don't forget the 15# hammer spring.

chris in va has it right. I would install the plain black rear competition sight and front fiber optic right away. It makes an unbelievable difference, like having a whole new gun, and the sights are easy to install yourself. And if you're into USPSA/IPSC, your gun is still Production legal.

I guess this isnt all that bad. I wont win a marksmanship competition, but I can ward of a few zombies. It was the first time with the gun too.
BTW, this was 4 mags of 16 at about 10 yards or so.
