Is that what were teaching soldiers nowadays, Shoot at the DOT. Instead of Acquiring, Identityfing and Knowing your target before shooting. FRATRICIDE in the making…


That is the most ridiculous comment to make from this video. I used my laser a lot in Iraq, its a huge benefit especially when the baddies are moving. When did he say shoot blindly at the dot? all soldiers are trained in verifying their shots they are professionals this isnt soldiering 101 its how to use a specific piece of issued equipment. you clearly are not in the military now or ever were.


Did you use a laser dot sight or a red dot sight ?
