Why did the terminator need laser sighting on his .45?
Any computing platform with the type of power that the terminator had should be able to do the type of billiard ball physics invoked in aiming a handgun with ease. He wouldn't have even needed to use the iron sights, so going for the extra bulk of the laser sight makes no sense at all.

Its a bit awkward thanks to the armor and how the helmet juts out but I can get my peepers lined up with the scope of my shitty ass converted hasbro blaster (like in this picture >>110378) though I do kinda have to angle it.

Of course as you point out mostly Stormtroopers hip fire, even Clones hip fire. Thanks to the electronic bits in their helmets they don't need to shoulder their weapons.

I've actually thought about trying to MacGyver a similar set-up for a helmet, gut a few cellphones for the screens and cameras and see if I could rig it up where I'm seeing through the cameras. I'll get right on it after I'm done with the 10 bajillion other products I've got to do.

My theory has always been that he left it on as a redundant/backup sight. In the event his computerized targeting became useless or out of calibration, the laser would provide him with an alternate aiming method to take up the slack until he could recalibrate. See early 3rd act Robocop for an example of this.

Then again, in the first Terminator, the T-800 missed plenty of shots he should have made. During the first chase when the Terminator was in the cop car, he fired several shots from a close range with a 12 gauge shotgun that should have hit either Reese or Connor.

The advanced T-1000 didn't do much better. In the service corridors in the Galleria, when the T-800 used his body to shield John, the T-1000 seemed to have a two foot spread at a distance of what, 10 yards? A similar lack of accuracy was displayed at the mental hospital where they rescued Sarah, and again during the helicopter chase near the end, when the T-1000 had four hands, it took him at least 2 full magazines from an MP5K to score a single (nonfatal) hit on Sarah in the SWAT van.

So....either we say "lol plot armor," or we accept that maybe the Terminators' targeting systems aren't all that great after all...although despite the above anecdotes, they do otherwise generally seem to display fine marksmanship against cops and cop cars.

I chalked up that lack of accuracy to the lack of sensitivity in the human skin to the metal endoskeleton.

The machine can be as aimbot as it wants, but the skin adds an error or mushy flesh, and there's probably not much nerve ending feeling from the skin to the robot parts so if the grip changes a little, the robot will have a hard time knowing where the gun is exactly in its hand. Basically, it would be like trying to shoot while on local anesthetics with big gloves on, even if you're Jerry Miculek you'll probably have a slightly harder time hitting a target that's moving around/shooting back. Human interface and all. I assume the actual combat Terminators with no skin are much deadlier with their plasma rifles as they have none of that to deal with.

Maybe that's why he wanted a laser sight 1911.

>why doesn't the T800 look down his sights on his other guns
The techbabble part of me would probably say something like the Terminators' targeting systems are all programmed the same, skin or no skin, so they normally don't use sights as their metal on metal plasma rifle to Terminator interface could be straight up aimbot targeting, and they hipfire to prevent the plasma rifle from blocking their field of view or something. When they get skin, they're more for infiltration than actual full battlefield combat, so the loss of accuracy probably wasn't considered by Skynet.

>why doesn't the T1000 have aimbot power since he isn't a robot in a meat suit

Maybe the T1000 piloting a chopper to follow an erratic truck while trying to shoot it was a little much for its targeting systems? Plot armor is most likely.

Let's hope that CIA are mostly interested in matters of national security, which would mean they do not care much about posting of my/yours/others regular shit. Although, if they do, everything and everyone is a potential threat and nowhere is really safe.

  Does anyone here remember back in the 1990s when a lot of media & political types were complaining about how criminals with guns were better armed than the police and that police needed more firepower? There was lot of talk about that especially following the Rodney King riots and the Hollywood/Heat bank robbery.
Now its 20 years later and the police are much better armed and people are complaining that they're too violent and have too much firepower.
Ain't life crazy like that?

Shotgun course of fire:

> First section: 8 targets

> Second section: 4+1 targets (the clay was bonus)

Think of it this way, disease is starting to ravage your lands. Men clad in armor and horses (neither ever seen on that continent) are killing your people by the thousands with swords and guns. All those opposing tribes you conquered are rallying around these newcomers, and to an Aztec high priest, your world is ending.

What better way to stave off the gods wrath and maintain social order than killing the other dominated ethnic groups in mass? (See Nazis).

Sure, they hardly sacrificed anyone before the Conquistadors arrived. What are you, an Aztec apologist?
However the actual numbers might be, the Aztecs kept records of the types of human sacrifices to be done in every one of the 18 20-day months of their calendar.

It was my understanding that much of the original records of many native american cultures are completely gone.

The Spaniards had a tendency to burn what they considered false idols, which ended up being most of the valuable primary sources that ever were. Turns out erasing a culture is pretty effective if you're converting people to a new religion. Either way, I'd say it's a history we'll never understand outside of glamorized, paper thin focus on the weird bits.

  An example of how pre-Columbian Mesoamerican records survived the Spanish conquest was the Mayan creation myth that was taken from spoken recitations (it is an epic poem also involving two hero twins life and journey to the underworld to play Mayan basketball and to avenge their murdered fathers against the sinister Lords of Death there) and also from wall carvings and paintings on vases. The Popol Vuh's fortuitous survival is attributable to the Spanish Dominican friar Francisco Ximénez around 1701. So, luckily, in this case, the Spaniards actively preserved this Mayan record.
