This is why peep sites on a rifle are good for people with poor eye sight.
However not the best for low light conditions.

My old Win 72 .22 came with peep sights. That's what I learned to shoot with. Still like them today.

It's how I learned I needed glasses...
peeping through my fingers to see the blackboard in school...
when I got glasses, I was amazed to see leaves on trees... instead of how i colored them. You know, the green lollipop on a sick that we all drew as kids.
It could be worse!

Love peep sights. They simply work.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

Neat video, thanks for sharing.
All my 10/22's have peep sights (Tech-Sights).

If I can't see clearly thru the sight how is that a help?

Yup. I've "peeped" many of my 22 Rifles and both my 1894's. Love peep sights.

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Another advantage is your eye and brain automatically center the front sight in the rear peep.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I have been near sighted since i was little and I have used the technique illustrated in the video numerous times over the years.

A large GR sight works pretty well in low light too.

Another peep sight lover here. Amazingly good sighting equipment they are.

The other day I was perusing another forum and the question of long range shooting came up... Evidently this fellow thought 500 yards was a bit much for his .30-06 with a 4x scope... I was literally dumbfounded. I just don't get it. Give me an M-16, some NATO ball ammo, and set me up on the 500... It's child's play to hit a man sized target from there. Why? Because PEEP SIGHTS, that's why!
Besides, 500 is really more medium range...
