Sadly I am having to transition to scope sights now that I’m in my mid 60s. I never thought the day would come, but it is on the horizon.

Still, a good aperture sight will extend your eyes ability to use iron sights for some time. Also a trip to the optometrist for a shooting prescription will also help immensely. Ask for lenses that focus about 36″ to 40″ from your eyes. That’s about perfect for revolvers or rifles. You’ll revel in seeing that front sight clearly again. Have them made with impact resistant lenses while you’re at it.

How’s this for about the best set up in a hunting rifle with a peep sight? The tang sight coupled with a Sourdough front sight is about as good as it gets for older eyes.
