In flight, a bullet does not follow a straight line but travels in a curve or arc, called trajectory. Trajectory is the path a bullet travels to the target. As the bullet exits the muzzle, it travels on an upward path, intersecting the line of sight (because the sights are above the muzzle). As the bullet travels farther, it begins to drop and intersects the line of sight again.
