Visible trigger modification bumps you up to ESP.
Are you talking about the stock high rise sights (designed to co-witness with a red dot) on the C.O.R.E.? Why are they more difficult to win with?

This is why, in the Olympics for example, people can train the same amount of hours, using the same coaches and all will improve, but those with natural talent (strength, reflexes, hand eye coordination, etc.) will rise to the top.
I started shooting IDPA a couple of times a month, about five years ago and had training from some very good shooters. I practice a lot too, but because I'm 70-years-old, I am not physically capable anymore, of competing with the younger guys.

The suppressor height sights require more careful alignment in a timed/fast shooting sport. In simple terms, there is more opportunity to break a shot without having your sight picture correct. It might be a small adjustment, but it does come into play when you are shooting for speed and accuracy. Soon, IDPA will be moving from a .5 second penalty for points down to a full second penalty for each point down.

Huhh? The sight picture is nearly the same. There is really no more real estate between the post and rear notch. The rear is elevated via a solid base.

POA is higher than POI in my CORE, but they may also be due to my loads.

Now the stock sites are not great, but not so much due to their height. Not as many options in CORE sights though.

I do not find myself searching for sights anymore with my CORE than other pistols of the same 3 dot config. Add an FO though, and I pick that up much faster.

If I get another non CORE 5" slide with std sights, it would be interesting to compare times as then the only thing different is the slide.

Dawson Precision has some great sights for the M&P Core. I almost bought the PC ported Core the other day but the trigger was terrible and I didn't want to spend the extra money on an Apex kit. The M&P line recently had a trigger upgrade and they have a tactile reset. I don't know if they upgraded the ported model but the one I tried wasn't.

Funny, I've been told I'm taking more time to break the first shot with my CORE than I did with my previous comp gun (Springfield XD in 45). I don't understand why this would be. So far I've been chalking it up to the learning curve with the new platform. To my experience the CORE sights are just mounted higher and I can get a sight picture without raising the gun quite as high as before. If anything I would think this would speed things up.

I am curious as to what is the difference that makes the CORE sights more difficult/slow/unforgiving what have you.
