Just wondering what number it would be set at for a standard flat shot, I always have mine set around 5 as it seems to line oup with the forsight better than any other number, can any one educate me on this sight and how to use properly, incase I get any questions.

The numbers are for 100's of meters. You set the sight for the distance away you estimate your target to be. The trajectory of the round will always be the same arc, a gradually dropping one, but the shorter the distance, the less you get to the fallaway, so shorter shots are flatter. Most combat took place over a 100 - 200 meter range, so unless you're taking a long shot, the sight would be down all the way, or up one notch.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."
