Can someone splain me the utility of windage & elevation adjustments on a handgun?
I can appreciate the need for them on rifle work, but for the much shorter distances normally associated with pistols & revolvers, whats the point? How much drift can be expected by a bullet in 15- 20 feet? That would have to be a hell of a wind.

fully adjustable sights are primarily just for target shooting. self defense sights arent even needed so drift adjustable on the rear work just fine

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
Bottom line is if a pistol has any type of adjustable sights on it I want them to be on whether I use them or not! There certainly as mentioned is a distinct difference between target precision shooting and concealed carry and point shooting. The same applies for me, if and AR Rifle for example has optics on it and I am using optics on it whether I ever use them or not. You can bet the iron sights will be zeroed also! Rifle or Pistol!
I use adjustable rear sights on handguns to teach classes with. Being able to align sights properly applies to any firearm, and should be a fundamental skill. Even if you're just chasin' rats around the barn with dad's old .22, you'll most likely be inclined to use the sights.
