One of the challenges of aging is your shooting skills. After my last prescription change to trifocals, I got a chance to head to the range for some practice. What an eye opener. (pun intended) The consistent groups that I was used to were gone. Moving and sighting with my trusty M&P 9MM my shots were all over the place. Standing still even required extra concentration.

With a enough practice the shooting came back to acceptable, but diminished eyesight will be one of the challenges as we age in a SHTF scenario.

Any insight you might have on the senses – eyesight, hearing, etc. and how people handled them would be helpful. My concern is that on a diet that is less than healthy during a SHTF all the senses will deteriorate.
