Lesson of the Day

Via a comment on a post about using the front sight at Excels at Nothing.
"The reason that it's so important to focus on the front sight is because the sight alignment is a much finer adjustment than your point of aim.

If your point of aim is off by, say, one inch, but your sights are aligned properly, you're going to miss the bullseye by one inch.

If your point of aim is perfect on the bullseye, but your sights are misaligned by, say .075 inches. Assuming a sight radius of 5 inches (pretty generous in this day of compact guns) and a distance of 10 yards, you'll miss your bullseye by about 5 and a half inches."
