Aim Low

Did you know that the sights on your gun assume firing at 1 g and in 1 atmosphere of pressure of an oxygen-nitrogen mix and in a temperature you can live in?

What if you fired outside this standard temperature and pressure environment?

You shots are going to go high in zero g.  They're going to go high in vacuum.

They're going to go low in higher gravity.  They're going to go low in higher pressure.

It could get very complex.

The sights of a spacefaring military are going to have adjustments for gravity and atmosphere.
