And I guess it would also depend on an individual's comfort level with their particular firearm. I've always referred to that as The Zen. It's when you and the firearm reach that real smooth sync. And with some you never do because you & the gun just weren't right for one another.

With the eye tests that are available today, they can tell the distance for a point of focus.

I suggest that you look into that, and get a single view lenses or have that area of the bifocal enlarged.

Now you won't be able to use the glasses for anything other than shooting, but it does work.

They also make lenses specific for computer users (and the distance almost equals the distance from your eye to the front sight).

I'm interested in looking into some of these eye test where can you find them.... There is one thing I wish that they would incorporate with the CCW class more with a little more hands on is weapons retention.. I mean they need to make a civilian level course.. I'm sure there is some out there but I'm in Oklahoma and I don't think there is any down here... I have seen a lot if people being placed in situations everyday where they would have gotten killed with there own firearms. It's like most people don't take that into consideration when carrying.

I refer to it as 'eye and hand coordination'! It is refined with practice.
I guess you can call it 'The Zen' if you want.
