A few years ago I began allowing the "over 65" shooters at our Outlaw A/P matches to use R/D optics without penalty. Immediately the "graybeards" were back in the game with the younger shooters and although not always in the top three are at least in the top 5-10.

Bottom line our older shooters adapted quite readily for the most part but as in all things there were some exceptions. Personally I shoot in both single stack and revolver with "dots".

I also shoot a "practical pistol" league that is somewhat "precision" pistol with par times.
My scores are almost identical with revolver and S/A. So the R/D must be an advantage to these 70+ aged eyes!

Never underestimate the power of age and treachery!

All the best in 2020,

Gun Control: Acquire target, align sights, press trigger, only after you have identified your target and what is beyond it and made the decision to shoot!
