I am forced to enforce the bs rule on the jobsite. I will NOT wear them on my own time unless I feel the need to. Nor will I ever belong to a gunclub that mandates them. And its too bad too, because I love being involved in the community, and love to introduce people to the sport I love. Not to mention with a ranching and construction background, I feel I can bring alot to the table for volunteer work for some clubs. Common sense goes a long way, I dont need a R/O acting like HITLER.
To each thier own and I will not pass judgement on anyone doing what they feel is in the intrests of thier own safety. I expect the same in my direction. If you think you need them wear em. Im not too proud to wear them when I feel the need to, but Im not in the habbit of being forced to do something that restricts what I can do without it either. Common sense goes a long way.
Dude... Chill out.
I don't like a lot of rules. I didn't like having to wear a seat belt when that law was first implemented in Texas in 1986. But, I got over it.
And, I've learned not to take these things so personally and to focus on what's important, such as having a good safe time shooting.
Granted, glasses may or may not protect you in any or all situations. And, I don't always wear mine. Frankly, when I'm on my own land, I do as I please.
Some RO's are too relaxed or not existent. Others are over the top. But, all kinds of people frequent shooting ranges and I feel safer when there's an RO enforcing a bit of safety.
If I'm offended or feel unsafe, I don't go back.
