Yes Ron, they can be turned on and off with ease. Used as I use them they last for years.

So then your saying you don't have peeps mounted on any of the flinters you hunt with?

NO - All my sidelocks have peeps. What I was referring to is the hooded front sights that come with the various apertures. Target sights if you will. I'm pretty sure that is what Ron has on his hot rod Hawken.

I can fully understand that.

I could see the deer where it was standing, it was less than 40 yards from me, but I just couldn't see my sights well enough to make a shot. Not to mention that I couldn't positively identify if it was a doe or a young buck (I only had a doe tag left) so I would not have shot either way...

I was in the woods, maybe if I was sitting in the open on a field edge or similar it would have been OK... I'd rather not take chances.

With most peeps you can unscrew the aperture and have somewhat of a ghost ring in low light conditions. But like Ron said, your eye automatically centers in the peep so shooting with both eyes open makes it easy to see what you're shooting at.

It was a #29 drill bit and a 8-32 tap.
