First Time Shooting With GI Iron Sights on my AR-15

The iron sights on an AR-15/M16 look like this:

(Picture shamelessly stolen from http://www.ar-15.us/223_vs_762x39.php)

I’ve never used them before and was skeptical about their effectiveness (seriously, how much does the Army/Marine Corps know about iron sights anyway…)

Well! Here’s me at 25yards marching my sights to zero:

Here I am at bench rest with sand bags at a clean target:

…and here I am sitting with no support other than my arms:

…THEY WORK! Holy Toledo!

BTW: The ammo was the PMC 55 GR stuff in my BCM 14.5.
