old man sights

Well I got the rear peep installed on the new Lyman flintlock and ordered the front globe sight .I have set up the TC PA hunter the same and will head to the range as soon as I get the globe sight installed. I hope this extends my open sight hunting for a few years as the eyes just can't get both front and mid mounted rear sights focused anymore. I get pretty frustrated as there was a time when I could shoot the heck out of just about anything that went bang. The day I can no longer shoot the ML'ders in late season will be a sad day.

getting old isn't as much fun as it should be, my senses aren't as sharp as they once were either.

got the globe sight installed and now just have to spend a few hours at the range. Because the Lymans have a 1-48" barrel twist I'm going to try a few conicals as well as round balls. The TC PA hunter with a 1-66" barrel shoots ballets real well and no patch required. They make a 54 ballet but having trouble locating an in-stock box. I may try the Great Plains bullet and you can find them at several suppliers.
