    #9 should be "a". Rear sight is moved in the same direction as point of impact. Front sight is opposite point of impact. Remember, your sights are actually staying put. You are moving the gun underneath the sight. Visualize that.

    If I am reading question 9 and its answers correctly the answer is B. The front sight is moved in the direction of the mistake, i.e. if your bullets are hitting to the right of the bullseye you would move your front sight to the right.

    This is spam.
