The placement of the sights on the target while maintaining proper sight alignment is sight picture.
Sight picture is the relationship of the target, the front and rear sights and the eye. Emphasis here is on the front sight. Inside combat distance, 7 yards and closer, if the front sight is on the target, the target will be hit when the weapon is fired. In combat shooting, this is the most important fundamental. “The eye can only focus on one object at a time. It can not keep the rear sight, the front sight and the target in focus simultaneously. The shooter must concentrate on the front sight.
Your eye can only focus on one thing at a time…You must focus on the front sight while keeping good sight alignment. When you pull the trigger you do not want to disrupt sight alignment.
- The target should be blurry.
- The rear sight should be blurry.
- The front sight should be sharp.
“Remember Point of Aim is Point of Impact.”
