    Wise words my friend.
    For all you young-ins out there, just remember what the old bull said to the the young bull when the young bull saw a heard of cows in the valley, he said, " Hey lets run down there and get us one of them cows."
    The wise old bull said, "No boy. Lets walk down and get em all."

    With my home defense gun, I will occasionally shoot without my glasses. It's a 5" 1911 with a Streamlight TLR-2 mounted on the gun's rail. The laser provides the sighting I lack when I'm not wearing my glasses. At home, I practice withdrawing my gun from the safe without my glasses. Then, only after I have the gun in hand will I reach for my glasses. I've never shot my BUG (Sig P238) without my glasses.

    Try Contact Lenses

    I have some bifocal glasses, but I try to practice using my contact lenses. I am near-sighted, so I use the contacts at distance, and a set of reading glasses to read..

    The advantage of the contacts is that you have peripherial vision that does not exist with glasses.

    I always wear shooting glasses over the contacts.

    There are some serious advantages to contacts over glasses...
    They can't get knocked off your head, no grease or smudge issues, some kinds can be left in for days, but....
    They can shift, and although not very likely get something under them, but the killer for me is having to touch your eye to put them in....
    Watched the wife a great many times put hers in and I just cannot do that....
