Bummer.

Well, I won't have this problem anymore soon. Was diagnosed with cataracts a couple of months ago, waiting on the surgery now. Supposedly the only glasses I will need now are readers, the kind you get at a drug store. Will see how that turns out. As of last I was running the dominant eye close distance, other eye far distance. It works for me anyway.

Government, in all forms, is just controlled oppression.

People should not be afraid of their government, governments should be afraid of their people. -V

Getting old and cranky in my old age, just like old men are supposed to be.

Not that good. Batteries are a failure point which will fail at the most inopportune time. Also these red dots still suffer from washout on bright days or if you are using a decent weapon light/flashlight.

If only minor correction is needed, these +0.50 Polycarbonate shooting glasses (other strengths are available also) will help sharpen the open sights when shooting rifle or pistol.
