A good day for me
« on: February 25, 2018, 12:15:28 PM »
I usually shoot from 7 yds. at the range - I really can't see anything that isn't blurred past that. In fact, you can see on the picture below that I take a marker and outline the bull's eye (as well as go over the X in the center) to help me see it.  Yesterday I shot my Ruger Mark IV .22 from 3 yds. and gradually worked it back to 15 yds. Then I brought the target back to 7 yds. and shot one magazine each with a CZ 75 9mm and my SA Range Officer .45 app, which I've had for about 3 months. Then I shot one cylinder of a S&W snub-nosed .38 special at the "9" at the bottom of the target. This is as well as I have shot so far. I hope to improve my distance shooting (which makes the 7 yd. distance easier).

Nice shooting - keep it up! I feel your pain with my old eyes.

Looks good, my eyes just turned 71 and I don't shoot  past 15 yards.

Thanks.  I just ordered some shooting glasses with the bi-focal part on the top instead of the bottom.  I think it will help.  I see you have already acquired one of the new 365s.  My range has had one for demo for a while, but got in their first one for sale yesterday.
