    I can if they're all fuzzy from your regular glasses. While I could wear special glasses in a competition (I did as a rifle shooter) that would allow a decent front sight picture, I wouldn't be wearing them everyday, and I'm only going to compete to get better at EDC so I need to learn to deal with really fuzzy sights.

    What kind of distances are we talking for this match? Fuzzy sights shouldn't be that much of a hindrance unless you are really talking about long distance or super tight shot placement. I don't say this to criticize but to encourage. There are a lot of good shooters who can't clearly make out their sights. You can do it to.

    One win went to a stock M&P 2.0. (it has orange paint on the front sight) This gun was second in the other two matches without the paint.
    Full disclosure it is actually finger nail polish.

    The fastest time has only won the match once. Accuracy seems to matter. (surprise)

    One of the winners with his 1911 had many accuracy problems with a small pistol in the first match. I am concluding that little guns are harder to shoot.

    Open category has not had a win yet.

    Someone said to me last night at the match that lasers are not very effective. I won't put her name here, but found her observation to be very interesting.

    Anybody have anything to add?
    Didn't see the match so I can't comment on that. Have you seen Karl Rehn's take on lasers? Red Dot Study ? Key Points ? Notes from KR

    For the upcoming one I know there's a 5x5 classifier at 10 yards according to the one stage they posted, which includes a head shot. I can do that, just not quickly.

    Wider rear sight notch would help, too, eventually.

    The only sights I know are fuzzy sights.

    My only observation is that I wish I could make it to more of the matches.

    I was talking to a specific person not making a statement in general. Having seen him on the range I was fairly confident he does not have vision problems.

    If you cannot see the front sight on your EDC why would you not go to a dot or a laser or get corrective lens that you wear always that would allow you to see the sights?

    A corrective lens that works at the focal distance of a front sight post is really annoying as a daily wear walk around town and drive a car lens.

    I have a special ~21" focal length lens Rx for shooting and computer work. I switch glasses for working outside & driving. My contacts are kind of in between the two. I can shoot using any of them but the front sight pops with the near focal distance Rx.

    The funny thing is the near focal Rx looks horrible with a red dot. I need the contacts or the distance lens for an RDS.
