Does anyone have as much trouble as I do shooting into strong light?

The range I use faces south and this time of year the sun doesn't get as high and get very high and my ability to get consistent sight picture gets worse than ususal.

If glare is the problem, you can try some Birchwood Casey sight black. Comes in an aerosol can for about 3-4 bucks. Cleans off with a little CLP or other cleaner/gun oil.

I do use sight black or a wick lamp and that helps cut glare from the sights themslelves, but I think the excess light does something to my eyes and the rear apperture appears smaller and fuzzy.

Have you tried an eye patch over your shooting eye with a pin hole in the proper spot? That would greatly reduce the amount of light to your eye.
