Klingon word: puS
Part of speech: verb
Definition: sight (with gunsight)

  tlha'a HoD, DoS wIpuStaH.
  Captain Klaa, we have a target in sight.  (ST5)

N.B. Do not confuse with the verb {puS} "be few, several, a handful".

I've seen *{puSwI'} used for both "marksman, sharpshooter, sniper" as well as "gunsight".
