fundamentals of marksmanship
Fundamentals of Marksmanship
  • Sight Alignment
  • Trigger Control
  • Breath Control
your eye and the sights
Your Eye and the Sights
  • The relationship between your eye and the sight is the eye relief.
    • The optimum eye relief is ~ 3 ”
    • This eye relief is maintained by a “spot weld”
  • The eye cannot be focused at two distances simultaneously. However, the eye is capable of instantaneous focus from different distances.
sight alignment
Sight Alignment
  • The top of the front sight should be centered on a line with the horizontal axis of the rear aperture. Center the top of the sight horizontally and vertically in the rear aperture.
sight picture
Sight Picture
  • Sight picture differs from sight alignment only with respect to adding the aiming point.
  • The most common sight picture is the “6 oclock hold”
  • Although all shooters do not use the same sight picture it must be uniform from shot to shot.
factors affecting sights and bullet impact
Factors Affecting Sights and Bullet Impact
  • Sight alignment
  • Spot weld
  • Wind
  • Temperature
  • Light
    • Position
    • Direct or Indirect
reading mirage
Reading Mirage
  • Mirage with 8-12 MPH wind boiling with no wind.
reading mirage22
Reading Mirage
  • Boiling with lateral wind left to right right to left
effects of sun
Effects of sun
  • The sun can affect the aiming point
  • This will affect the point of impact of the bullet.
factors affecting trigger control
Factors Affecting Trigger Control
  • Concentration
    • Focused on sights
    • Slowly squeeze trigger
  • Grip on Rifle
    • Firm
    • Same for each shot
  • Trigger Finger Placement
    • Same position(straight pull)
follow through
Follow - Through
  • Ensure there is no undue movement until the bullet leaves the barrel.
  • Continue to hold breath, focus on front sight, and practice trigger control.
call the shot
Call the Shot
  • When do you do this?
    • During live fire and dry fire.
  • How do you do this?
    • Note the relationship of the front sight to the rear sight.
  • Why do you do this?
    • Allows analyzing the shot or group of shots.
