Range Safety Officer Commands

Sighting in your Firearm

Having a properly sighted in firearm is important. The following section provides guides for properly sighting in your firearms. Links are provided to additional information; these links are external and will open in a new tab/window.

1. Firearms with Iron Sights

If the sights are not aligned correctly, then the sights should be adjusted to bring the line of sight to meet the point of impact. It generally takes a number of shots to establish a group, then the sights are adjusted to move the line of sight closer to the group, and the process is repeated until the sights are correctly aligned.

Vertical Adjustment (Up and down):

If your shot is above your target using both sights facing directly at your target, the rear sight should be moved lower or your front sight should be moved higher. If your shot is below your target using both sights facing directly at your target, the rear sight should be moved higher or your front sight should be moved lower. Always remember: Move the rear sight in the same direction you want your point of impact to move & your front sight the opposite direction you want POI to move.

Horizontal Adjustment (Left and Right):

If your shot is left from your target using both sights facing directly at your target, the rear sight should be moved right or the front sight should be moved left. If your shot is right from your target using both sights facing directly at your target, the rear sight should be moved left or front sight should be moved right. Always remember: Rear same, front opposite that you want POI to move.

2. Firearms with Scopes

Telescopic sights are adjusted by clicks, representing minutes-of-angle (MOA). One MOA translates into approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) at 100 yards (91.4 m). You must check your sight’s instruction manual to determine the correct number of clicks needed to properly adjust the sight.

If your scope requires 4 clicks to adjust the Point of Impact (POI) one inch at 100 yards (one MOA), then the following values will apply:

Distance (Yards)Adjust POINumber of clicks
1001 inch4
501 inch8
251 inch16
201 inch20
Scope adjustments where 4 clicks = 1 MOA
