Default Blinking Gunsight

OK, I'm trying to understand the gunsight in the Tomcat. When I don't have a lock the pipper shows me where the rounds will hit at I dunno 100 ft and the diamond shows where they hit at 2000 ft or so. If I have a lock, then the pipper shows me where the rounds will hit when I pull the trigger and the diamond just designates the target--so with a lock I want the pipper on the target when I pull the trigger.

BUT...what about when I have a lock, then at some point, the whole HUD blinks. My pipper seems to disappear when that happens and so when should I shoot? I don't get what the manual is saying, can someone explain it better to me?
