    Do you feel that it is more important how well you see or what you see?

    I would rather have "lock on" ability than sharp focus. I no longer have either.

    I'll only say that shooting blurs without focus is not a bit fun and your eyes fatique VERY rapidly without focus...hard to lock onto what you cant see

    Not really sure you can have one without the other because your eyes cannot lock on without focus. As CalvinMD said it can be very tiring and I will add frustrating as hell in a place like Winchester when the Monarch butterfly's are all dancing downrange about the time you call pull. Humm which orange and black rimmed blob is the real one???

    again,this might be more of an individual thing for each of us. I find I can no longer see the rings on the targets, and shooting more of a "blob"

    If all your seeing is a streak, you'll have a tough time hitting the beak!!!! Just saying.

    I guess clarification is in order I meant exactly what I said.

    Nothing was stated about focus.

    I was referring to visual acuity or where you look and what you see.

    Put it this way would you rather see 20/10 or keep your eyes on the target at all times?

    I agree with Twinbirds

    I do know one thing for sure. The days my vision is good (it varies because of poor eyesight & contacts that are inconsistent) my confidence soars.....
