Back in the old days we never considered offset for the M-16. When it was better understood firearms trainers would stand on the line yelling “remember your offset”. What we have found from after action reviews is that under the extreme stress of life and death combat calculating offset is about as easy and counting your shots or Chinese arithmetic.
Keeping it simple and straight forward would seem to be the way to go. We all know that training time and range time are not what they should be. Rather than complicate the situation we can use the recently available hardware to make are our shots count.
