I enjoy iron sights more than most. Nothing bothers me more
than seeing some guy at the range-rifle in the lead sled, clamped
and sand bagged down, pulling the trigger with a mechanism.
Can you imagine this guy on a hunt?
"Oh YOO-HOO! Can you just not move for five minutes?
I've got to go back to my car, get a stand,vise and sand-bags,
and then I am so
going to mount your rack on a wall in
my den! Don't go anywhere, now...
What? did they not believe the manufacturer's claims to accuracy?
I even removed the scope mount from my Marlin. Yeah it "looks"
cool, and aims passably, but not well. At one point
or another, you'll get tired of the "look" and "fun" of inaccuracy,
at which point you may want to try a holographic sight.
I can live with the look, better than I can deal with iffy
