Safety Glasses

When it comes to shooting, safety glasses are more essential than many people think. Impact resistance, distance from the face, side protection and fit are all issues that should be considered when you are choosing which safety glasses to wear to the range. It is very easy to be complacent about eye wear, but you may want to put some extra effort into how you chose to protect your eyes.

    I agree totally with what you are saying. What I am running into is that I have students show up for basic classes who need their prescription glasses to see targets and sights. I tell them the risks and suggest that they get some safety glasses but that is not practical initially for first time students. Any suggestions?

    The only time I didn't wear safety glasses was in the military. I don't know why the military didn't have them. In fact, I didn't know why the military didn't have very much safety gear (Korean War)> I have worn safety glasses since starting to hunt and rec shoot (about 50+ years)! My safety glasses are the top rated safety glasses sold by a major Safety Equipment Company. I used these glasses while working for a railroad. Won't shoot without them!

    once again all we hear about are glasses (safety/sun) that are solely useful for those who do not wear prescription glasses. my prescription glasses are shatter resistant, etc. but i prefer something additional for shooting. unfortunately, putting safety glasses over my prescription glasses is less than ideal. it certainly does not protect me from what is described in the video. so, does anyone have an answer for those of us who aren't 20/20 or wearing contacts?

    for some reason your videos are not showing up on my mac. The rest of the page is ok, but the video section is completely white with nothing to suggest there is a video there but for the space. Any thoughts? CDS

    This is why a hat is an essential part of your eye protection!
