It seemed like a good idea to me, so I took a gun to my eye appointment and showed the doc how I held the gun and asked for a separate pair of glasses for shooting. Wow, when I got them what a great sight picture. I don’t remember sights ever looking that good and I have worn glasses all of my life. There was only one problem: at 20' and greater distance, there was no target, a 6" black bull’s-eye at 25' could not be seen with my new glasses. I guess my doc wasn’t as smart as Duke’s. Shooting Times used to be my favorite, and one of the things I liked about it was you could read it front to back and the story was always continued on the next page, not way in the back. Tell Connor he doesn’t get a raise until we get to see a picture of his wife. Michael A. Fitz Portland, Oregon You might consider bi-focals next time with the closer focus portion above the distance part. That way you can stand facing the target and just tilt your head down to focus on the sights. I know new glasses are expensive, so in the meantime, you might just try a Merit Optical Device on your regular glasses. It attaches with a suction cup and the adjustable aperture will help you achieve a greater depth of field. Contact them at Merit Corporation, P.O.

Yeah, Mr. Connor should be the first article. Keep it going Mr. Connor. You da man! Robert L. Mead Menifee, California Mr. Connor’s article in the August issue is superb! Those who have not served usually have a hard time understanding articles of this type. As a retired Navy CPO, (1955-1974) I was quite emotional while reading this. How could it be better said? Our troops are beautiful people, profanity and all. They are proud, willing, courageous and quite intelligent. Some may not agree, but I see this article as a major part of the magazine. Thank you John.

Either the .221 Fireball or the FN 5.7x28mm in Ruger’s 77/22 Hornet platform or Remington’s 541S reborn with a slightly larger action and a metal magazine. Both would make great varmint calibers and both companies make great firearms.
