Forgot to talk about sights.
For ISSF pistol events, the sights must be "open" - typically a rectangular post front sight and a rectangular notch rear sight (although variations are sometimes seen).
I wear progressive lenses. They are really unsuitable for pistol shooting, especially rapid fire shooting. The narrow band in which the front sight is visible usually puts your head in an awkward position. Then in rapid fire it is very difficult to pick up the front sights in time for the next shot. Far better to get a special, single-focus lens (with its focus set to give you a sharp image of your front sight). The lens for your other eye can be a progressive or a reading prescription (so you can see to adjust your sights) and then you have your "shooting glasses" (with safety lenses of course) - this is what I wear for shooting.
: What would be a good starter target pistol for a beginner? I also wear progressive lense glasses, is there any sights that would be best to shoot with this physical limitation. I would like to keep the price under $500.
