With an adjustable sight... pick the style sight picture you want to use and adjust the sights to hit when holding that sight picture.
This. Consistancy WINS.

Is this pistol for personal defense or target work?
Does not matter. Use one sight picture, always. He who hesitates is lost.

I'm an old school rifle guy, and learned to line up the sights like in the second pic, "center hold". Back in nineteenseventywhatever, in hunter ed, I remember the first pic being called "punkin' on a post"... nad was supposed to be faster for pistol shooting.... but when I tried it when I started shooting pistols, I consistantly shot low, and slower..... I got center hits quicker by using the same instincts I had long cultivated shooting rifles.

The third pic, with the dots (night sights) .... tritium night sights are a relatively new thing, and "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" without a lot of RTR.... if it's that dark, I'll be good to even SEE my target, let alone be worried about fine accuracy.
