Wow what you said makes me well better still seems like it's going to be a good choice and the price is definitely right! Thanks!!!
Pretty good instruction manua, it will walk you through it.
Basically, the front sight is in a protective hooded housing...has two screws on each side that clamp the front sight blade (which is a kind of fiber optic-ish plastic). But loosening one side, tightening the other, can move the front sight which sets your windage. Elevation is a matter of loosening the same screws and moveing the sight up or down.
SO...I'd ignore any windage error at first, and get elevation right. Once I had it on at that level, would then dial in the windage.
KEEP IN MIND: are working with the front sight...so you move the front sight in the OPPOSITE direction of your desired bullet movement. Make the sight taller, and your impact goes down...make the sight move to the right and your bullet impact moves to the left.
All in all, have found a good high intensity flash light a lot more useful. IF it is so dark you can't clear;ly see the target, shouldn't shoot...lasers kind of promote shooting unidentified things.
The big plus of the KelTec is that folding design....which really isn't all that useful in home defense, but certainly will allow you to carry that little carbine in some unexpected places. Fits fine in your typical slim-line briefcase.
