Like a lot of us, age has changed my eyesight. Need trifocals now and things never seem to be at the right distance for the windows on them. Using open sights has required me to go away from the dinky notch and fine blade front sight. With those, I might as well use the gun like a shotgun -- just point since I can't see the sights. So the question: proper way to use a full buckhorn sight. I have gotten lots of answers from those who use them but every one seems different. One guy even says they are used for three ranges - blade in bottom of notch for close, blade in center of buckhorns for medium distance, and long range with blade at top of buckhorns. I got a funny look when I said I'd rather keep in at one position and hold over or under for different ranges. So, those with them, what works for you??
