SWAT Officer At Armed Standoff Has His Rifle Sight On Backward

• Business Insider
 The fellows pictured here are not military, and certainly not in combat. They are local SWAT teams in upstate New York, the small town of Mohawk, population 7,500, and they're surrounding an alleged killer holed up in a local business.

What's telling about this picture though is that the officer with the "military style" assault weapon and the $500 "military style" close quarters combat sight has that same combat sight attached to the rifle backward.


In effect, it's useless.

The photo was at the top of military Reddit this morning, along with a host of disparaging comments about domestic police forces acting like they're military when they're anything but.

It is an EOTECH holosight. That one runs on two AA cells. My personal favorite.

 It is on correctly. Though I prefer mine a bit further forward. This is FACT. I have owned many. The control buttons are facing the shooters face as they should. His rear sight is down...No big. If it's sighted in just put the dot on the target. Having the front (In this case the front sight is a fixed type) and rear sight in alignment with the holo sight is called co-witnessing.

Please!!!!!! If you're going to publish stuff like this. Make sure you know what you are talking about. It makes us real gun folks look bad.
