I went through that about 8? years ago. Was having trouble focusing on the rear sight, the front sight and the target at the same time.
My friends told me a scope was the answer and that I would like it.
I thought a scope on a 30 30 was like a gold ring in a pig's nose so I put my rusty but trusty Marlin away and bought a new .270 rifle and a good Leupold 3x9 scope.
I hate the scope. I will never like it. No way can I make a snap shot on a deer as it takes me too long to find my way into the scope. Yes, I can make longer, more accurate shots with this package - and have - but most of my shots are well under 100 yards so iron sights and lesser ballistics were more than adequate.
It's a part of getting older I guess. As is whining about stuff, which my post mainly is :)
