A friend of mine who's a really good shooter, had a mentor who was on season 1, and he said something along those lines (hearsay, I know.) There was a thread on reddit by a former cameraman, and I did not hear anything about messing with the sights.
However, I sometimes wonder how such highly trained professionals have difficulty with familiar weapons, like the AR or the FAL.
Anyone else happy to see Michael Morelli go?
