Yesterday I won a 500yd shoot (AR class) with my Bushmaster DCM.

Shot a 6 inch group off the bench with the irons. 73 year old eyes still working without glasses.

This was my fourth win since 2014.

So you are never too old to stop shooting.

Congratulations!

I hope to make it the range when I am 73... well maybe with shooting glasses I am at +3.0 now

That's great. I'm 72. I stopped wearing my glasses for myopia about 11 years ago; I thought I was seeing better without them. I went to an ophthalmologist last year to ask about the flashes that had started to appear. My eyes were just fine except for the flashes, floaters, and minor cataracts. I asked for a new prescription and he said I no longer needed glasses. Next day, I went to the DMV, passed the eye test, and had the 'with glasses' restriction removed. A year later everything is still fine.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to get to the range with my M1 that's older than me and my new Loaded M1A.
