Anyone using one of these? How do you like it? Not like it? I have to wear weak reading glasses to shoot, sights are clear, target is blurry. Wondering if this is an answer?

I have not used a FastFire, but I have used a J Point (http://www.midwayusa.com/BROWSE/BrowseProducts.aspx?&tabId=10&categoryId=11757&categoryString=657***7276***&brandId=1069) and an Ultra Dot L/T (http://www.theshootersbox.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=388) sights that are very similar. The Ultra Dot L/T is clearer and has a better dot. I have not seen A Fastfire, so I can not compare them. I would like to see one. I am strongly considering getting this FastFire setup (http://stores.homestead.com/Laruetactical/Detail.bok?no=134) for my AK.

I am in the same boat as you with iron sights and old eyes. I can use 1.00 power glasses, but they fuzz up the target some. Red Dot sights on hand guns were the answer to being able to shoot like I could when I could still see the sights. I hated it at first, but have accepted I can not see the sghts and embraced Red Dot sights.

Fastfire is very good. Have it on a M1 carbine and AK.

I'm looking to mount one a 1911. So you guys can shoot with just saftey glasses using this type of sight?

So you guys can shoot with just safety glasses?Yes, assuming your far away vision is OK. (Target distance)

Thanks Walkalong, that's the answer I was looking for. Think I'll order one and give it a try.
