Shooters of the Beretta 92 series, have a tendency to shoot low, and often low and to the right (or sometimes left). This, of course, is due to their prior trigger experience, and inadequate training with careful response/feedback (aka calling the shot).
Often they'd complain to the gunsmith, or, more likely "want to borrow" a punch and hammer to "adjust" the sights.... which of course were windage only adjustable (and they were shooting low).
In such instances, the gunsmith (moi) would reply that tools were not lent to customers, but after brief inquiry, the type of pistol would be mentioned, and the knowing gunsmith would strike a deal with said customer.
"If I shoot it, and it shoots off at fifty feet, then I'll take my #@@# hammer brass punch and adjust the !!@# sights for you at no charge; or, if I shoot it and it shoots to the point of aim at fifty feet, I'll use the same @#$@ hammer to adjust your @#$@# trigger finger, also at no cost to you.
They'd usually back down, ask me to "check" their pistol by firing it, which I always did, cuz I love to shoot other folks ammo. The result was inexplicable spontaneous correction of the sights whenever I held and the pistol, along with equally inexplicable and spontaneous return of the sights to their previous "way off" state whenever I placed the pistol on the bench or into its owner's hands.

Read the friendly manual *** The notch in the rail is supposed to be there (so quit askin' about it!) *** If you ever have to manually extract an empty case from an auto-loaders chamber, don't shoot again until you've checked for bore obstructions.
