ArmA 3 currently has iron sights improperly sighted.
Iron sights should be sighted so that the target sits on top of the front sight post. This is commonly know as a "center hold", and is also how the United States Marine Corps teaches all of its recruits to shoot.
Right now it seems that ArmA 3's iron sights are sight in so that the tritium night sight must cover the target. Also know as a frame hold.
