      New eyes available soon..........

      I'm a pretty good shot with the revolver, should be, as long as I've been at it. But last year, my shooting began to fall off. Groups began to open up some. Not to the point of being embarressing, but I noticed.

      Well, I thought, its time for new glasses. Dropped in to the optometrist for fitting. He referred me to an opthalmoligist. Cataracts.

      So, had surgery, first in left eye, my master eye. Had to switch eyes and shoot with right eye. Then surgery on right eye. Slight astigmatism, so still will need glasses. I was released Tuesday, June 6th, and ordered new glasses. With these my vision will be 20/20. Hopefully I'll have them before Saturday.

      Bottom line-protect those eyes with shooting glasses and sun glasses, and have check-ups.

      For me, the difference is like going from a 40 Watt light bulb to a 100 Watt buld.

      getting older does suck.

      Getting old does suck but it's generally better than the other option.

      Golden Years

      Golden Years!! Yea right. Who come up with that one. Not to many years ago I could group 2-3" at 25yards all day long with my Colt and now I can't even see the target. It's one big blurr.
