The sight alignment should be perfect. Dead center and dead level. The sight picture should be where ever you like to zero, but should be the same every time.

Sight alignment is more important than sight picture.

If your alignment is perfect and you break the sear 3" out at 4:00 you will hit the target 3" out at 4:00.
But if your front sight shows it's 3" out at 4:00 but your alignment if off you shoot wild and may miss the whole target.

Remember that the line of sight should be in parallel to the bore line, if the gun is zeroed. If the front and rear sights are out of alignment the bore line is pointing somewhere else.

It matters not at all that your eye is looking at the target if the bore is "looking' somewhere else.
