Bear with my on this. I am wondering if anyone here has considered something I may try at the end of this month. I use my M4 for CQB. Lets define that as < 100 meters, but quite often its 15-30 feet. Using either an Aimpoint Pro or a T2 on the M4, what if I set the glass to remain in a perfectly parallel plane with the bore? At 100 meters or less my MK262 mod1 is about as flat as can be. So for CQB my 2 inch mechanical offset would remain perfectly constant at any distance up to 100 meters. I am wanting to employ tactical markmanship training and not perfect paper punching. Therefore anytime I pick up my rifle with the optic always on I simply place the dot on my “bad guy” and having that dot 2 inches high would render an exact hit. If I am off by 1/2 inch or so it won’t matter for a tactical operation. With a 2-5 inch wound cavity we are talking effective as can be.
I am trying to eliminate mental adjustments for the quick needs of CQB, and I perceive such a method might be nice. When I have the time, such as the infamous “head shot” during a hostage situation, you simply slow down just a little bit and place the dot 2 inches above the sweet spot you want. What do others think of this? I am open to all comments and this is a place where we come to share ideas and try to help each other train!!
