Sight alignment is having the front sight in the center of the rear notch and the top surface of the front sight is level with the top surfaces of the rear sight.  Sight picture is now just having the aligned sight placed in front of the target.

The drill for sight alignment/ sight picture is quite simple, set up for a target as far as possible from the students. Utilize the long length of the room and generally back up all the way back near the back wall to maximize distance. For example, if you can get up to say 20 yards, then use the full 20 yards. 

Instruct the students to only shoot the target once for each presentation. That is, they only have one shot to hit the target. So they extend, prep, break a shot and then evaluate if it’s a hit or miss. The reason for one shot is a follow up shot may be based on the feedback of the previous shot. In other words we want them to fully focus on the front sight with the proper sight alignment and the proper site picture with a target there behind, and with only that information, press the trigger and thereafter get the feedback from the laser impact to see if it was a hit or miss.  After the shot, pull the come back to a compressed tire ready then begin another repetition.
