No, it's really not worth it.

Mainly because the only way to really sight a gun in is to actually shoot it and see where it shoots for YOU.
Everyone "sees" the sights differently, and holds the gun differently, and a gun that's sighted in perfectly for me, may be way off for you, and vise-versa.

A laser-sighted gun (which Colt used to do to most revolvers) will only get the gun at least on the paper.
When actually fired by the owner, the gun may be shooting well off the center.

The best way to sight in a pistol is to get a sturdy table with a sand bag.
Many shooting ranges have shooting tables or benches that are perfect.

Using a two-hand hold, rest your wrists on the sand bag so the gun, including the butt does NOT touch anything, and shoot a group.

Adjust the sights to bring the groups on the center of the target. Then shoot off the bench to check and do any fine adjustments needed.

Thanks for the great advice. Makes sense to me. Guess there's some other things I can spend money on.
