If your handgun has dovetailed front and rear FIXED sights, which do you move for windage adjustments?

I have always moved the rear sight to the left or right, but lately, I am seeing a lot of guys drift their front sight for windage corrections.

Is there an advantage to drifting the front sight?

If a large adjustment is required, the front will get you there faster.... or did I just dream that? Somewhere in the back of my BHG I seem to recall that front is coarse, rear is fine. Am I wrong?

Shane 45-1911,
I have only adjusted the rear sight. The only time I would consider drifting the front is if the rear were hanging out of the dovetail (fortunately, I have never had that happen).

Neither, you bend the barrel and slide (if a Glock or other off brand). LOL
