For those of us who haven’t made the effort to go out and get a decent pair of protective shooting glasses, and those who are tired of sporting the “Ryobi grinder goggles” on the range, there is hope…
According to the latest range safety trends and rules, wearing protective lenses whilst on the shooting range seems to be getting ever more popular. The thought behind these regulations seem to be in place for obvious reasons, and who is to argue? Rules are rules, plus the idea of losing one’s vision where such an incident could have been avoided is unthinkable. Have a look at the links below to drive home the idea that wearing protective eyewear on the range is ‘New School’:
Not everyone enjoys wearing eyewear on the range, and this can be clearly understood. If you wear prescription glasses do you just pretend these can take the hit, or do you have to double-up? How accurately are you going to zero your rifle if you have stuff in the way between your eye and the lens of the rifle scope? No one looking through the scratches of their free, work-issued PPE glasses would plan on wearing them in the veld. So “practice makes perfect” is pretty much out the window.
