    Hi all, I was able to get to the range today, with my new Bushmaster M4 'Post Ban' with the A2 Carry Handle. I shot at 50 yds with iron sights, using the larger apeture. One of the range officers recommended placing my head much closer to the rear sight(with nose almost touching charging handle) I don't know which technique is correct(being new to the AR15) . Using his technique, which was a bit uncomfortable at first, I was a little more accurate.

    Easy........ This was my first time out with this gun, I had to at least sight it in first:) First, I want to get firm with the proper sighting technique, then practice so i'm shooting much tighter groups at 50 yds........then we'll see about 100 yards.;)

    I used to put the cartilage in the tip of my nose into the V formed by the charging handle and stock. It ensures that you have the same cheek weld every time.

    I'm so out of practice, I'd hate to see what my first time out would be with one of those. Oh, my indian name is "Liver is shot." ;P

    nice! I have the same rifle, but with the Mini Y-Comp muzzle brake....it's loud as hell.

    Now it's time to dump a bunch of money into it. ;)

    Man, I love those black targets with the green underneath them!

    [​IMG]

    Top one iron sights (sighted then rapid fired).

    Bottom Red dot (sighted then rapid fired)

    Side one just goofing off with the two carry handles I have. Apparently to get them sighted correctly I am going to hav eto damn near bottom out the front sight. Didn't feel like resighting in the Red dot and the BUIS to sight in for two carry handles I don't plan on using with this rifle.

    I also used 55yrds for the Improved Battlefield Zero setting. Can't remember where I heard to use 50-55yrds, but I alo set mine a little high on the target at 55yrds.

    not bad shooting.. i mean i cant keep from a little rapid fire. :D
    but it does suck that one of my rifles hasnt made it out to a range longer than 25yrds. but what you gonna do sometimes you just got to shoot. hope to go soon though.

    Good stuff. The reason there are two different sizes apertures on the Ar 15/ M-16 is one is for daylight shooting and the largest for nighttime.

    Iron sights, 50 yds. Great job! Especially for 1st time out. Heck that's great for any time out. Enjoy

    ACTUALLY, ONE is for less than 100 yards, and the other is for out past 100 yards (um, meters. but what the hell is a meter:rolleyes:).

    the larger of the two for "quick" target acquisition, and the smaller is for "precision" targetting.
