I recently was gifted one of these and was anxious to try it out. I've been shooting skeet for about a year now and have taped my glasses for that entire time but always felt awkward with so much of my vision obscured. Surely this is what’s kept me from achieving the perfect skeet round of 25!
I'm happy to say that I put the Magni-Hunter on my Beretta and shot with it yesterday. Loved it! I shot for the first time with no tape and, although I still didn't bust ‘em all, I did feel a lot more comfortable having my left eye uncovered. It works as advertised – there’s a little tunnel-like thing that allows the right eye to see it while it’s shielded from the left eye, so your left eye isn’t tempted to go looking for the sight.
One bummer: this did not work well when shooting at dark, under the lights, like we do this time of year in skeet. At least not this first time around...the neon color took on a bit of a UFO-glow that clearly distracted me - I couldn't seem to take my eye off it as the clays zoomed by.
Overall, though, I’m pretty pleased with it and am counting on the HI VIZ to help me (eventually) raise my game.
