Would you prefer open sights or having a scope?

It depends on a lot of things but if I took all my hunting/shooting situations and put them together I would prefer open sights.

I scope all my rifles. The old eyes aren't what they use to be.

If I was to pick up my first rifle with open sights today, someone would have to tell me there was a front and a back one. Scopes, low power!

Depends on what I'm shooting.

Large dangerous game - low powered detatchable scope zero'd @ 100 yrds and open sights set @ 50 yrds

Non dangerous game at distance - scope zero'd @ 200 yrds

Paper at distance - scope

Dangerous people - open sights

Definatly a scope, lower powers like 2-7X or 13/4-6X. Old eyes don't see open sights well enough.

I like my open sights on my 30-30 that I use as a brush gun, but prefer the scope for all other applications Big smile

I voted scoped but really enjoy shooting open sights also.Lever guns and muzzleloaders were made for open sights IMHO

Since I'm new to this, what's the reason you'd want a low power scope?
