I have to agree with you Sniper, I find the straight 8's to be the easiest sights for me to use. Like yourself, I am retired too so maybe it has something to do with the age of our eyes :)

My 1911 Collection (Addiction)

My current collection.
I included a photo of one of the frames with a Nelson Conversion unit on it. If anyone is in the market for one, look them up. Great quality, and exceptional customer service.
