So I was thinking, typical gun sights are shit because you have to line them up in the right orientation, but could't we make a sight that wraps around the barrel (top and both sides) so that you could fire the gun at any angle? pic related

>typical gun sights are shit because you have to line them up in the right orientation
No anon, if you didn't do that, you would miss the target. What you described is an effective method of predicting the trajectory of the projectile. Wrapping the sights around the barrel would, one, cost more to manufacture, and two, be fucking retarded.

That being said, I appreciate that you think outside of the box, and you should continue doing so.

Won't work. The front sight post would also need to wrap around the rifle. Then you'd have no idea which segment to line up between the two.
>>
>>23518843
It would be more practical if you cant get your gun to face a certain way if objects are in the way
>>23518895
The front sight already does, and if you lined them up youd be fine.

wat. Since the front sight is essentially a line, how the fuck do you select a point on it when aiming at a target? With conventional front sights, they come to a point (or nearly so), and you put that point on your target. Where is the point on an arch? Preposterous.

>mfw /k/ can't into aiming
>>
>>23518843
Cool idea, OP. But I've got an even wilder one that's bound to blow your mind!

Typical bullets are shit, because they can only hit one part of the target. What if we made big hoop-shaped bullets, that would cut big bloody sausages out of whoever they hit???

OP here went back to the drawing board

I have this strange idea that if you're firing your gun and you don't have time to look down a regular sight properly, pinpoint accuracy probably isn't your biggest concern.

It's certainly a novel idea, though. Points for that.
>>
>>23518843
OP, you need to stop trying to be creative. It just doesn't work for you. Endeavor to be completely conventional in every way possible, because that's the only way you'll succeed at anything. I'm trying to come up with an analogy for how assmangled your creative process is, but I'm drawing a blank. Go back to playing with your glue and macaroni.

Great IDEA!

Umm the blue one wait it's dark... the number oo sorry I can't see

Darn it's been knocked out of alignment again...

Let's make something to get caught on stuff

Time to rotate rifle for good picture very short, time to count little numbers or match colors a lot more

Also It covers up some field of view with this thing...

And it's gonna cover fixtures on firearm. Safety, bolt handle etc... Try making a mockup out of cardboard for the rear one and see what I mean..

OP, I like your willingness to think outside the box without fear of reprisal.

...with that said, I'm gonna go get the popcorn. This gon' be gud.
>>
>>23518843
No. It's a retarded idea. You're trying to "fix" something that isn't broken. Conventional sights are great, just learn how to fucking use them rather than trying to mame some dipshit contraption to compensate for your faggotry.

In order to know why OP is retarded, one must ask: why are the sights on top? Put simply, bullets tend to fall downward.
>>
>>23519515

So if you turn the gun sideways, do the bullets tend to fall to the side?
>>
>>23519553
In relation to the gun, yes. Would the sites still be accurate in such a scenario? No, as the plane it's supposed to be sighted for has now been rotated 90 degrees, which fucks everything up.

no, the side sights are sighted in for when the rifle is twisted and they're on top

Not OP.

But what if there are a dozen sets of sights on the gun, each fully adjustable?

what we need, then, is 45 degree back up iron sights on either side of the weapon. someone sketch this up it's a money idea

Or just have sights that are on a gyroscopic setup, so whenever you rotate the gun the sights will turn to match the angle of the gun so they would always be on top of the gun and always aligned.

Why not have both front and rear sights on a track? Connect them with a rod so that they stay in alignment whenever you adjust the rear sight.

The swivel would have to be notched at each position because even moving the rear aperture around just a little bit can fuck everything up.

Also it can break loose. You're hilarious OP, keep thinking outside the box.
