    What does everyone here use for eye protection at the gun range...?!

    ====================================================

    I use these...Howard Leight Lightweight Genesis Uvex Shooting Glasses

    [​IMG]


    Engineered to deliver unsurpassed comfort, protection & style. Cushioned "brow bumpers" absorb & diffuse impact. Nasal "soft fingers" conform to nose bridge.

    Exceeds ANSI Z98 & CSA high-velocity impact tests & meets military V standard for impact protection. The amber tint helps to brighten
    the view of the target and surrounding area, especially in low-light situations...

    At the range I just wear sunglasses on bright days, or cheap safety glasses (amber or clear) on not so bright days.

    I use these on SWAT, super comfortable, don't fog up, and good protection. Wiley X CQC

    I didn't wear safety glasses until a shooting buddy sitting right next to me exploded his 8mm Mauser trying to shoot some hot anti-tank rounds.
    The only thing that kept him from getting blinded when the bolt came back in his face was he forgot to change back to his street glasses & still had his work safety glasses on. The bolt broke the safety glasses when front of it split in two, then put a deep cut his forehead.
    We didn't know what kind of ammo it was until we got home and looked it up. We thought it was just some normal surplus ammo.
    It doesn't take much to protect your eyes.
    Here are some cheap safety glasses that you can use & throw away, just put a hand full in your shooting bag.

    At less than $2ea you can't afford to not wear eye protection.

    I wear POS sun glasses. I lose them all the time, so I always have a new pair sitting around.

    I just wear my regular glasses. Are there any good options to go over my glasses?

    I wear lab goggles over my glasses when I go shooting. You can pick up a pair for about $6.

    I wear Harley Davidson Long Riders with the leather wraps. Medium tint allows me to see well indoors and they help keep wind out of my eyes when shooting outside. Also provides side protection Fully adjustable and very comfortable. They are OSHA approved. 145.00 Also bring along the good old fashioned wrap around style safety gogles with 1 each clear and a tinted lens. Someone always forgets there eye cover when we go to the range. But I do not shoot without them.

    Abso-freaking-lutly! Unless you have a head like a giant pumpkin almost any safety glasses you find at a home center, HomeDepot, Builders Square, or MegaLowMart that fit over your regular everyday and unsafe glasses could very well save your eyesight. Buy two pair of the cheap 3M or other type for under ten bucks and if you are careless and loose them, you can just pull another new pair out of your range bag.

    DO NOT CHEAP OUT ON EYE PROTECTION :D

    I have a pair of perscription safety glasses that I had to buy for one project I worked on a few years ago. They are the ultimate birth control glasses so they stay in the range bag. I also warn the girls about the dangers of flying HOT brass.
