Creating the Crosshair

First, we begin by opening Flash. (Duh). Open a new document, so you have a blank page.

Draw the crosshair

Make it any style you'd like. I usually make mine transparent in the center so you can see your "enemy" behind the crosshair.

Converting to Movie Clip.

Select all of the crosshair, and when it is all selected, press F8. Check the checkbox for Movie Clip. //(In the .ZIP)\\ (Follow the red arrow.)

Animation (Optional)

Now that your crosshair is a movie clip, you can double click on it and animate the crosshair in it's own movie clip timeline. Animate within a span of oh say, 6 frames of the crosshair moving up and down as if shooting something.

On the first frame of the shooting of the crosshair, import any gun sound effect you'd like.
