shooting low

took my .45 and my .40 to the range yesterday and fired some rounds through both to remain familiar with them. I shoot well with the .45 (both same model, Taurus 24/7) so I know Im shooting well enough to judge that the .40 is shooting low. Target was about 15 yds out and it shot consistently low through 3 different shooters, just to rule out possibilities. I think I need a lower front sight. Is this something that can be done by myself? Or does a local gunsmith need to take care of this? Or is this something that even needs to be sent back to manufacturer? The gun is a Taurus 24/7 pro .40. There is a set screw on top of the front sight and it looks pretty simular to a glocks front sight, although I cant say for certain its exactly the same.

Not knowing how much experience you have had shooting, I would offer this advice before you physically alter your firearm.

Are you holding a proper sight alignment? If not, it can throw off your grouping.

Check this out and see if this is what you are doing when shooting the firearm.

well, its about an inch to inch and half low at 15 yards. It shoots a consistent group, just low. I could certainly try to use the top of the front sight and that probably would compensate plenty. As far as familiarity goes, I have been shooting almost my entire 28 years as of age 4 or so. I know how proper sight picture and such. Not a problem you asking though, how would you have known? no problem. Think I will try this method.
Ya know, I got to thinking about this and I decided that even if you are hitting 1" to 1 1/2" low at 15 yards, if you get into a self-defense scenario, and if you aim centermass on the BG, your still going to hit " vitals " ( ie: heart, lungs, abdomen ) so that is really not a major problem.
