Now, if you will look through the rear sight and down the barrel to the front sight, and shift your gun a little up or down, left or right, until the bottom of the bead of the front sight just touches the bottom of the V of the rear sight, and at the same time get the top of the bead of the front sight exactly under the bottom of the bullseye, you will have taken aim, and if at this instant you pull the trigger the bullet will hit the mark.
In aiming you must also be very careful that the barrel of your gun is perfectly straight, for if it is canted as it is called—that is, tilted to one side or the other—it will throw the line of sight out of true and this will make you miss your mark.
