You didn't say if you need correction or just safety/sun glasses.

You didn't say cheap. :rofl: I only have one set of eyes. I don't mind spending big money on them.

I also have a pair of these...

You can pick them up for under $50 They come with multiple lenses and best of all you can change out the ear pieces to use the included strap. The strap is MUCH more comfortable under hearing protection.

I recently bought Radians Eclipse RXT Shooting Glasses. They are almost clear indoors and darken when outdoors. Love'em so far

You get a lot of bang for your buck with the Wiley's.

PhatAlbert 05-15-2012 18:45

That sounds good you own any Wiley's?

I've been happy with Oakleys. I think the model was Strike, but mine have replaceable lenses so I can go clear indoors or tinted outside. Not cheap but very versatile.

PhatAlbert 05-17-2012 16:01

That's the thing "not cheap" I got these Juliet's as a hand me down... Heck if I think their worth 400 brand new lol. Pallets are goo brand though just pricey. If anyone has these Wiley's please let me know your thoughts.

I don't have that pair, but I have tried them on. I didn't like the foam all the way around. They felt like ski goggles to me.

How long is your typical range session? It actually makes a difference. For me, I can be at a USPSA match for 6+ hours in changing light conditions. After 2 hours or so, ANY glasses with stems (except for the Rudy's. They are ULTRA thin) start to give me a headache. My ear pro presses them into a nerve or something behind my ear.

PhatAlbert 05-18-2012 11:21

My range session is my back yard anytime I want but primarily during the day. I also use sunglasses for mowing an wee eating

Went to a bass pro shop found out I didn't like those glasses but liked the p17. I think im going get them prescriptive so during the day I have good eye protection and can see

I love my oalkey half jacket xlj's. Been using them for about 8 years, and all of the parts can be replaced if needed.

PhatAlbert 06-01-2012 22:10

Yea heard good things about half jackets but that style of sunglasses just don't fit me that well

On the cheap end I recommend N-Spec Venom's but if your really concerned about eye protection then get something like these

or something Mil-spec which can take a ballistic impact

I like Revision.

Check out your local golf pro shop for a pair of Maxx sunglasses. Every place I've bought them, they are about $20. Even sold at the pro shop at Gunsite academy. They are shatterproof and fit well.

First found them on a golf trip to Myrtle Beach.

Only "shooting" glasses I've ever bought,

they even do perscription lenses (which I need). While they put an emphasis on shotgun use, they work well for everything for me.:supergrin:
