I told this story on another thread many years ago, but while training Jordanian snipers we noted that they couldn't hit shit past about 400 meters. Missing by miles, could see all the strike marks, dust etc everywhere but the target area. When looking over could see that sights were still set for 100. Explained - after extensive training on the scope - that if you adjust the elevation and deflection you'll hit that target, only to be met with "no city loyal, if god wants us to hit the target we will". Expensive ammo they were merrily firing off into the desert too. Idiots."Who needs rear sights when you have 12 Imams?"
I have always been intrigued by this, what is it with the middle east that no one uses the dammed sights!!! why??
Years ago I was at a range in Las Vegas and there was a couple of arabs as well, lot's of money for ammo, they just never used the sights.
The only people who use the sights are the Israelis. I have discussed it with arabs I have met, and they just think your mad to even ask the question, as allah will guide the bullets.
