Default Microfire Holo site. Any try this out yet?

Has anyone tried this messer optics micro fire sight out? I have a problem with focusing on my pin and the deer at the same time with my glasses. My pin is somewhat blurry and the deer is in focus. This sight eliminates the peep so both the dot and the deer are in focus. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this sight?

I've never tried a red-dot scope/sight on anything. It's not that there's anything wrong with them - it's just a personalpreference.I like to keep my weapons electrical/electronics-free.

I hear ya. I just need something that I can "see." My pin is blurry, but my target is clear and I think this may work.

I haven't tried this one and probably won't. I tried the EOtech sight about 7 years ago and found it wasn't very practical in a hunting situation.

Let me explain something. Don't know how old you are, but I'm 62 with aging eyes. Even young people with normal vision cannot focus on too things that far apart without one of them being blurry.

I've reached a point of needing some pretty string reading glasses (+2.75). My distance vision hovers around 20/50 and I can still shoot out to 50 yards without wearing my glasses. And I use several different peep sizes. The peeps actually help clear up the sight picture. The pins are blurry; more than they used to be so my groups aren't as good. Maybe 6" at 50 yards these days.

One thing I have found is that I had to tone down my fiber optic in my sight. Using an HHA OL-5000 with 5' of optic. I like the fact that it's bright, but lately have found that wrapping some electrical tape around the hood dims the pin and I don't get near the "starlight" effect I had so I can aim more precisely instead of having that "light" shining back in my eye.

Maybe you could try this.

It's not possible to focus on the target and the pin at the same time. They are in different plans. Think of it kinda like pistol shooting. Front sight, focus, squeeze.

I said kinda like pistol shooting. We are dealing with two different disciplines here Either the target or the pin will have to be blurry.

I am 53. I will try to tone down my fiber pin.
