I know the mechanics of how to sight it in but I am wondering at what range and where should I have POA relative to POI? Set it up for 6 o'clock or dead on?

I can't be the only one who owns one of these "rare" pistols!!

It really is up to your personal preference.

My opinion...if you're plinking at 25 yards, I'd set up the pistol for a center hold.

If you're trarget shooting, then I prefer a 6 o'clock hold with just a hairline showing.

Whatever works best for you...

What FNC said. If you're shooting "targets of opportunity" that differ in size, then having the POA = POI at 25 yards is probably the best bet. .22s shoot pretty flat under 50 yards, you won't need mych elevation change. I shoot bullseye the most, so my .22s are sighted in for a six o'clock hold on a standard NRA or USRA bullseye target. These vary proportional to the distance & I need no elevation change from 50 feet to 50 yards.

My 6 7/8" Govt. Target Model is sighted in to hit dead on at (?) distance. What distance? Can't remember (sheepish look). Would be either 25 or 50 yards, though. It shoots so straight, I just know how much to hold over to hit at all ranges, though.
