    My advise would be take off all but one of those things on the sights ( leave the red dot ) and get it shooting tight at 20 yards. Good luck man.

    And it's very very hard to tell but your D loop looks like it's high.

    Yea I was jus practicing how to tie it until I learn more about where to place it and about where would be a good spot to put the sight for the first shot

    Do you think it would be better to buy some more modern sight because I’m a beginner

    You need your arrow to be level from loop to rest.

    Modern sights have some advantages, but they will still need the same tuning your Cobra sight needs. It just may be easier access to the pins. It’s not because your a beginner; we all have to do the same tuning. Start with one pin, like Fix mentioned. Add a new one once you get the 20 yarder dialed in. Hang in there, you will get it working.
