I actually like. Them.
Maybe just because I'm used to them. I suppose it is kind of a pointless shape given that they aren't carried that way. Still I like iron sights, and most flip sights tend to annoy me for no reason. Anyway if I can still consistently hit the target at 8 or 9 without a scope, good. Less expensive hardware to screw up with one bad fall. Then again, my eyesight isn't what it used to be.... Sometimes I think that it would be nice to see my target a bit more clearly.
