Target - blur
Front Sight - clear
Rear Sight - blur
Although, please note that in the following diagram, even if you get the CORRECT sight picture as shown, you will only hit the 9 point. This is an illustration of correct sight picture only. So, for an accurate 10 point shot, move the sight alignment a little higher.
Here's a useful correction chart for your reference for Pistol Right Handed shooter to try to correct your mistake on where your bullet hits.
For those shooting Glock, this is how your sights placement should be. All Shooters like this Quality of Sight. Crystal Clear, Front and rear Alignment.
Taking each and every shot consistently with sight aligned correctly makes a lot of difference between a quality to a lousy shot. Most shooter know what is proper sight picture but having difficulty in finding it when it is needed most.
Practice a lot of sight acquisition with a lot of dry firing will make a whole lot of difference.
