    What does everyone here use for eye protection at the gun range...?!

    I use these...Howard Leight Lightweight Genesis Uvex Shooting Glasses

    Engineered to deliver unsurpassed comfort, protection & style. Cushioned "brow bumpers" absorb & diffuse impact. Nasal "soft fingers" conform to nose bridge.

    Exceeds ANSI Z98 & CSA high-velocity impact tests & meets military V standard for impact protection. The amber tint helps to brighten
    the view of the target and surrounding area, especially in low-light situations...

    I normally wear my regular eyeglasses but think I might be interested in a pair of those Sawflys - like the vet connection. Has anybody bought these with the prescription carrier?

    I wear prescription glasses also I don't have much of a choice in eye protection.


    BUT LET ME ADD THIS HEADS UP

    One time at the range while firing my 45 at a local indoor range.I was well relaxed
    shooting,then all of a sudden one of the spent brass landed between my glasses and lower eyelid.What had happened is it ejected from my 45 hit the partition between the shooting lanes and landed there.So wear a baseball hat with a visor

    Learned that a long time ago. Also learned that if wearing a button down shirt and no t-shirt, button all buttons except the top one - hot .45 cases just love soft belly skin!
