    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 and an Ultra Dot L/T 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 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.

    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.
