It’s important to understand the Army’s core motivation of improving accuracy as the underlying reason for issuing a close-combat optic (CCO) in the first place. Combat marksmanship is no different than Olympic target shooting in its two fundamentals of trigger control and sight picture. You just do it a lot quicker! Certainly trigger control is by far the more important of the two components of accurate shooting, however, you can’t buy skill. From an overall operational standpoint of improving a soldier’s marksmanship, the Army realized it couldn’t buy good trigger control, but it could buy better sights.
