For those of us who are getting a bit older and dealing with eye sight issues, are you still running irons or did you switch to red dots? I have a mix of guns, some with irons and some with red dots. Surprisingly, even with needing to use reading glasses to see close up, I'm still proficient with irons. The sights are a bit fuzzy, but I've always focused on the target so my irons were never really in sharp focus. Question though, who else still trains with iron sights even though your eyesight isn't what it used to be? I still prefer irons for conceal carry, but I know my accuracy is a bit better with red dots. Not that I can't put rounds on target with irons, but my groups are definitely tighter with red dots. Anyway, has anyone converted completely to red dots, or are you still running irons and accepting the fact that your eyesight ain't what it used to be? Or, like me, are you still training with both?
