Hey guys, Just a quick question, How many of you shoot with safety glasses on? Now Im not knockin thier roll when there nessisary(like overhead cutting on wood or steel, or even with some black powder guns) Im just of the opinion, ''use them when you feel you need to''. I just toured yet another ''rod & gun club'' that the insurance companys have scared to death....One of thier rules(like alot of places these days) is ''eye protection at all times at or near the bench''. You dont even have to be the shooter, but your still required to wear them. I personaly cant get comfy cradeling into my rifle with them on. Ive tried, but theyre so distracting I JUST REFUSE TO WEAR THEM while shooting. As much as Id like to belong to a well kept and safe range, I just wont spend the $ to be ''that guy who always rocks the boat''. Rules are rules, and I dont want to offend the club or its members by willingly paying dues, and breaking them. I never wear them while hunting-nor will I- so why would I wear them while practicing? The same arguement could made for hearing protection while hunting, how ever I belive that most all rifles and guns are loud enough to pose a threat to your hearing. So i always wear earplugs while practicing. But the glasses thing drives me nutts and is IMO completely un-nessisary for most (not all)shooting situations. Are there any clubs left that arent completely ''californicated'' by lawyers? I guess I may have to settlte for goin out to the desert to shoot..... My dues at a club should pay for range time, and upkeep, and the use of a bench and backstop, Ive even done volunteer work for some clubs to help promote our sport, and enjoyed doing it. But Ill be danged if Im gonna pat dues for some lawyer to tell me what Im gonna wear while I shoot my rifles, and guns. Any opinions on this-for or against-the mandate?
