Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to determine whether a circular bracketing sight mounted on a standard M12 12-gage riot shotgun could enhance the effectiveness of the weapon by reducing shot-pattern radial miss distance and increase the number of pellet hits on target in a short-range, quick-reaction environment against a stationary target. Circular bracketing sights of 1.232 and 2.464 inches in diameter were used.
