I have one muzzy with iron sights I use for true premitive weapon hunts. Lose powder, wade, and a 200grn ball. 100yrds deadly. Also a thompson with a true glo peep. 150grns pwder 240grn powerbelt deadly to 150yrds. And a pursuit II XI7 with a nikon omega, 150grns powder 300grn powerbelt deadly in my hands to 300yrds. What ever you get use the crap out of it until you know what its limitations are. Also know what exactly is legal where you hunt is. Good luck.

I went with a Traditions 1x scope so I wouldn't run into that problem..I'm sure that would happen to me!

I used a 1x scope when I got my CVA Apex, since it's built for a scope. Never did like it. Thought about buying an EoTech, but changed my mind. I went out on a limb and bought a Peep sight. Talk about accurate. I thought I was making a 200 yard shot on my Elk, but it ended up being 280 yards. Drilled him hard. I was flabbergasted when I ranged it afterwards. I know, it kind of defeats the purpose of having a rangefinder. My window of opportunity didn't give me time. Anyway, I'll be using my Peep from now on. I'm sure you'd like it.
