Shooting Glasses


Recommended Posts

Very important gear!  Lots of law enforcement and EMT/paramedics are making them a mandatory part of the uniform.




I have a buddy that's old enough that when he wore safety glasses to annual qualification, he was mocked for being a sissy.  Until he showed everyone a piece of copper jacket stuck in the lens right above his pupil.


The cheap ones from Harbor Freight suffice for me.  When I put out for big name stuff like Oakleys, they walk away with great frequency.


What are you wearing?

Oakleys, I have the Ballistic M frames but use the standard M frame lenses. Those Ballistic lenses have some kind of coating on the inside that starts to peel at the edges and the standard M frames lenses don't. I have to drill a hole in the top center of the standard lenses for the Ballistic frame clip to make them work. I called Oakley about the peeling problem (I had three lense sets that were peeled) and they sent me one replacement. After that I just used the other lenses.


I keep several sets of Wally World shooting glasses around for friends and family to use.

Oakley, Wiley X, and ESS glasses.  I've had all three brands issued at one point or another, and they excel in eye protection. Hell, I've been wearing Oakleys since the first pair of Eyeshades came out in the early '80s.  Still have a pair in a box somewhere. 


ESS Crossbows are my favorite so far.  Those things are great.

I use just plain safety glasses that double as my shades anyway. 10 bucks from Grainger. That way I don't have to worry if they get scratched or anything. Scratched? Throw em away and put on a new pair.


Yup. I go even cheaper, with the $3 safety shades from HF.


On a completely unrelated note, I'm not sure why as I get older I'm going crosseyed.
