Re: Shooting Glasses?

I dont want to be the party pooper, but I wont jump on this wagon. Its just not for me.
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.

Be safe.

Re: Shooting Glasses?

I recently suffered an eye injury and to say it wasn't the nicest thing happen to me is an understatement.

I truly RESPECT my eyes now!

I have always worn either sunglasses or safety glasses (that look like sunglasses) when shooting, the odd time when I'm out hunting I do not wear them. But generally wear them at the range 100% of the time - just for my own peace of mind not some 'rule'.

I would prefer to prevent an injury than try and recover from one...

Peace.

Re: Shooting Glasses?

Take a look here for info on getting prescription shooting glasses. I got some today and showed my optometrist the print out of the info and he agreed with it.

Re: Shooting Glasses?

I wear oakley jawbones most of the time, lens swap is seconds away, im not religious about eye protection while hunting but try to be, however i had a 17 hmr fly apart in my face and i was wearing glasses, my face was burnt and hurt all over except my eyes and had some specs of i believe powder imbedded in my skin, if it werent for the glasses i might have lost an eye, thankfully all i lost was some permanent hearing in my left ear.
