New and improved sights

Postby Tex1961 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:48 pm

I was able to get new sites on 11 guns for about $400.00

They’re called NEW GLASSES

Wow, I knew I needed a new prescription “I wear progressive lens” but dang, I’ve been having a dickens of a time keeping my front, rear and target all in focus. I take that back, it’s been downright impossible, but now I can focus all three. Think I’ll hit the range on Tuesday and see if my groupings improves.

I didn't know it was possible to have all three things in focus at once.

If you knew how bad my focus was then you’ll understand for me just actually seeing all 3 at the same time is considered in focus. I was to the point that I couldn’t even bring the front sight in focus anymore.

I can focus on all the front sights. I can focus on all the rear sights of my handguns when held out at arms length for shooting. And I can focus on the target. I just can't focus on any two of them at the same time. I cannot focus on any of the rear sights on any of my rifles without my reading glasses, but I don't shoot with those at all because I couldn't see any of the front sights or a target with them on. With iron sights, I mostly try to focus on the target and have the front sight visible, albeit it a bit fuzzy, within the rear sight where it should be. It still works pretty good for me so far.

BTW, I did have my eyes lasered by Boothe about 10-12 years ago and my distance vision is still about 20/15 - 20/20. That presbyopia thing has crept up on me in the last 5 years.
