    I have a large revolver, 8 shot, 4" barrel with target sights.
    At 25' my shots are on target, but at 50' I'm having difficulty seeing a clear vision for the target.

    I've been pondering a holgram sight or possibly an optic fiber, or a red dot.

    Any ideas/opinions which are best for target shooting?

    Thanks for any help.

    Red dot scope or a low powered scope with a lighted retical, would help. I have a 1" Ultra Dot scope on my 22/45, and love it:)

    All you should focus on is the front sight.

    Let the rear sight and target blur out.
    Your eye & brain will take care of the rest.

    As long as the front sight is clear & sharp, the target & rear sight can be blurry and it makes no difference.

    That's the way it is supposed to look.

    Nobody can focus on three things at the same time anyway.
