Many episodes feature a sequence in which a long-distance sniper uses a laser sight to hone in on a target, but a real sniper would never even consider using one. First of all, the laser gives away the presence of the sniper which, although used successfully in the show, completely defeats the purpose of a hidden sniper. Second, and more importantly, a laser sight is completely worthless to a sniper because there are so many factors that affect the trajectory of the bullet on long-distance shots - wind, altitude drop, and the Coriolis effect on very long shots to name a few - and have no affect whatsoever on the laser that the bullet would wind up being at least several feet, if not several yards, away from target the laser pinpoints!
Opening credits generally do not appear until after the first act, 10-15 minutes into the episode, an unusually late appearance for an American TV series.
