    Lol.... yea I'm in the same boat, with my glasses on I can't see the rear site, with my glasses off I can't see the target, if I try and split the distance I can't see shit, at anything less than 50yd I'm a point and shoot guy, I can usually hit a paper plate

    I modified the 1894, removed the front sight hood and put a $20 sling on it. Now it's perfect.

    I've been thinking of putting a red dot on mine but the iron sites work just fine

    The gun came with a brass bead front sight. When I got my 1911 it had fiber optic sights on it that I didn't care for. After a suggestion from a friend I installed a solid black rear and a brass bead front set on it, and found that I liked them very much. The only problem with the rifle is my eyes.

    Spray and pray is the only way.

    You can use Kentucky windage when you can see the hits; if you can't see the hits, spray and pray away.

    I can't shoot MOA with a rifle that can, but I can still hit most everything I point a gun at. I just point my guns at really big targets.

    I'm near sighted so I can see the targets but not the rear sight

    I never understood the terms near sighted or far sighted, I cant see shit up close anymore but my distance vision is still spot on, am I near sighted or far sighted? And more importantly is there a way to get back the near vision without compromising my far vision?

    Maybe I can find a happy medium with glasses? Getting old sucks.

    Best of both worlds perhaps? I'll give it a try, I'm not anxious to let people cut on me eyeballs.
