Documentary tutorial on the RAF ring GUNSIGHT - THIS IS VERY GOOD ILLUSTRATION AND TUTUORIAL AS TO IMPLEMENT IN WoV BoB2 AIM-OFF TECHNIQUE


H-C - note how the RAF ringsight diameter was used to:

1. estimate range via the viewed width of the wingtips vs. the ringsight diameter
2. estimate the aiming angle off at various attitudes of target vector to the shooter's position & vector

The diameter of the ringsight was also adjustable as per the range required, as well as coordinating this to the particular target winspan, ie: a bombers wingspan is
greater than a fighter's.

This footage may even have been an early teaching tool for training WWII RAF pilots, as it is of animated drawings, probably shown to advanced learner fighter pilots in a small bioscope theatre?
( can anyone remember a movie theatre being called a bioscope? )

You can also see why the RAF gave major preference to the Brit 'Landed Gentry' pilot volunteers and also to Colonials, as they would have done live wingshooting as
youngsters on the likes of Sopwith Estate, Canada, Aus, NZ, SA and Rhodesia ( my father was born with an English-side-by side in this hands in a place with tens of
thousands of Guineafowl jus outside - he told me when once as a boy, he brought down 6 with a single shot 12-bore ) and they would already have had experience
of 'leading the target' and the aspect of the shot falling further, the greater the distance.
I have shot a few thousand birds on the wing over 50 yrs, and adapted quickly to these theories on combat flight sims without too much issue - see the vids prev post



my capture of the RAF ringsight tutorial = SHORT

Yeah,,,aim off commonly called spot shooting here :mrgreen: ,,,
although swing through or lead and follow through (depending on the angle) is the name of the game in this country,,,
would assume the aim off distance is shorten dramatically due to the fact one is bearing down on the target.

Back in the day when I was a fanatical duck and dove hunter, my wing shooting skills carried over to shots on running game.
However, because of the variables involved,,,angle, speed, distance, etc,,,they can be damn tricky at times.
This small buck was a prime example,,,half way between a straight away and quartering shot and trying for a the lungs,
I misjudged the angle scoring his hair and would have missed him if he hadn't had his head slightly turned.

Jeeeeeeeeze HC, lead and swing thru a .308 & scope at 600 feet+ - very tricky!!!!! Or exceptionally skilled? Is it a problem wounding an animal, and are there any repercussions, fines etc if protocols are not
followed? ie is it OK to jus leave a wounded animal which runs away?

Here we only allowed to shoot stationary game to give the shot the greatest potential surety after intensive scope zeroing the day before - this due to much of the big game ( ie Buffalo) being exceptionally dangerous, as
i) if the thing charges you you might die ( only time we allowed to shoot at a moving target )
AND
ii) if you wound it, it will:

a) charge you with greater determination and you might doubly die
OR
b) it will run into thick cover and await to then ambush you from 20 feet or closer, where there is quadruple the likelihood of you or others dying in this now very dangerous pursuit ( esp Buffalo)

The 'real' big- balled Big Game hunters shoot Buffalo over open sights at max allowed 90 foot ( ie side by side Holland & Holland 450 or 500 Express- the loudest guns on earth)
And Elephant at max allowed 30 foot range; both with a PH or 2, or other second standing on the
hunter's shoulder with another open 500 as backup, which understandably prudently one sees as most sensible especially if the Hunter has unknown marksmanship or 'brown underpants' skills.
There is also usually a videographer on the hunters other shoulder recording the event for future re-
living this pathologic ego.

However, the greatest skill in shooting Big Game over open sights, is the aspect of bushcraft and stalking, approach from downwind and care not to step on dry leaves. Bit like the sucessful fighter Aces of the Battle of Britain actually, as most 'kills' wer completely unsuspecting targets whom were
oblivious to being stalked in a blind spot, the Hun in the Sun, etc.

Also, in professionally guided hunts, the Hunter usually pays penalty of 300% of the trophy cost if he/ she wounds the animal making continuing the hunt far more dangerous, and creating stress for the PH and his trackers to then find a bolted animal, and of course the terrible stress to the animal if it runs
and takes some number of hours to slowly die; and of course may never be found and be torn to shreds by Hyena.

This can become expensive, as a trophy Elephant cost $300,000 US, and a Roland Ward Tanzanian
Buffalo $80,000 US. However, this may only seem expensive to us as international hunters are in the same finacial league as Steve & Bill; jus gott a different take on ego.
The PHs generally like Americans; they say the Japs and Italians are the worst; poor shots and completely unpredictable when under stress or trying to deal with their insatiable macho egos ( they usually immediately want to have the testicles of their trophy cut out, and sliced in order to eat the same, obtaining some sort of cave-man like spiritual power.)

Dangerous animals like Leopard are hunted (despicably, in my view) from a downwind tree hide at
night on a well rotted bait, the hide with two up, the Hunter and the PH
They also Bow-Shoot Leopard like this as the range is so short.

The most dangerous of all wounded animals is the Leopard, as it is so fast, and so aggressive when
cornered ( like your house cat )
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yBY-Y1c5Akk

You will see large caliber 357 and 450 Express Double with open sights in this close range Leopard attack
When the Leopard is finally hit with a 357, by the 5th or 6th shot, it is killed and instantly immobilized
- not surprising when you see the cartridge of this ammo
Leopard when attacking upright humans raise their rear legs and evscarate you with their very big instep claws.
This one very lucky PH - see th very big instep claw holes in his chest.one idiot says don't worry, "only a scratch", meanwhile they effectively 3 inch deep stab wounds
If anyone dosent like hunting, suggest you don't watch this.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DIyrZrMbzIU

Then you get guys like our nut-case Lion Whisperer - I wonder how many summers he gott left?
( see Lion tear off a vehicle wing mirror with one paw - probably smelt some food transfer from a hand some time before )
