So small and insignifigant...

But, oh so important to we shooters with cross dominance issues.

Being a right handed shooter with a dominant left eye, I've been using Magic Dots for many years. For those unfarmiliar, these are small translucent "dots", about 3/4 inch in diameter, that one applies to the lens of one's shooting glasses to blot out the sight of the front bead with the dominant eye, for me, the left eye since I'm a right handed shooter.
This allows the afflicted gunner to keep both eyes open when shooting a target. It aids in target acquisition, and depth perception, greatly helping folks who used to be "one eyed" shooters, or who tried to remember to squint at the last second..
Lately, these very important aids have been missing from the marketplace. Browning bought the rights from the originators, Meadow Industries, and subsequently discontinued them.
I'm now at the point where I need replacements, and they're not to be found. Sure, I could use a small square of Scotch Magic Tape, and for the time being may have to. But, Morgan Optical, the folks who bring you Randolph Ranger shooting glasses, is trying to produce these little gems once more..
If you're like me, and require the Magic-Dot to shoot effectively, call or e-mail the folks at Morgan Optical and let them know that you need them, and need them in a hurry!

Remember, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease!"
