Ah well. I meant well, but it didn't work out. My eyesight has gotten too bad from my last operation to shoot open sights for hunting. I'll still mess around with the sidelocks, but for hunting i'll go back to the Omega and scope. The buyer backed out, so I still have it.
Such is life.
On a plus side. The DOW has issued me a special permit because of my eyesight to use a scope during ML season here. Colorado is no scopes for ML season.
