I have that same peep sight here at the house. It used to be on a T/C Renegade. I liked it, and it was very accurate. BUT where I hunt in shadows in the cedar marshes, late afternoon shadows can play havoc on my old eyes. Of course you can take the center out of the sight and shoot it in a ghost ring. I never did that. I guess I always figured I would loose the center. Instead I went to 1X scopes which are legal.
As for getting over that flash in the pan, the thing I do is prepare myself mentally. I tell myself that it can not hurt me, and then I concentrate on the sights. I actually look through the shot. I look over that sight, fire, ignore the flash, and concentrate on the target. I actually want to see the hole pop through the target. Of course with the smoke this seldom happens, but it helps me to maintain the shot, ignore the flash, and shoot more accurate.
Whether that peep sight would help you with the flash.. I doubt it. Still they are a heck of a aiming device. I had mine professionally mounted by a gun smith. When I took it off (same gunsmith) the gunsmith laughed because he tried to talk me into the scope in the first place. Still, one of the longest shots I ever made was with that peep sight and it drilled perfect where I wanted...
