This might be the right section, if not, then ohh well. I was interested in getting some shooting glasses. I currently do not wear prescription eyeware.

I mostly shoot with iron sights, 100-500 yards or so.

Any suggestions on shooting eyeware?

Thanks in advance!

I bought these http://www.wileyx.com/EcommSuite/ProductDetail.aspx?ActivityCode=TACTICAL&SeriesCode=173&ProductLine=845,SABER&ItemCode=302 (http://www.wileyx.com/EcommSuite/ProductDetail.aspx?ActivityCode=TACTICAL&SeriesCode=173&ProductLine=845,SABER&ItemCode=302)
inexpensive ballistic rated, light and adjustable. When I bought mine they came with clear and smoke lens and frames.

You mentioned you do not use corrective lenses, so any ANSI-rated eye wear should be fine as a baseline.

I love Oakleys, some other well-respected brands are ESS and Revision. These would all provide good ballistic protection.

Rudy Project USA!

I've used them for the last 10 years as well as on 3 deployments and the lens quality is second to none. Add to that the technology that they put in for additional light entry, Rx built into the lenses as well as their ballistic protection and you're not going to find a better set of glasses (yes including Oakley).

Rudy Project USA also is the only company non-shooting based eyewear company that openly places shooters in its advertising (they're HUGE in Europe in the cycling/triathalon world). Add to that they sponsor well over 100 shooters in just about every shooting sport there is and how could you not support that kind of a company?

I have a 30% discount code for anyone interested. Just e-mail or PM and I'll get it to you. On the shooter's kits, it's over $100 in savings on a set of glasses that come with 3 sets of lenses.

Check out their shooting glasses: Rudy Project USA Shooting Glasses (http://www.e-rudy.com/index_inner.php?group_id=1&cat_id=89)

They have more glasses that are ballistic rated, but these sets are put together by the shooting teams for popular frame style and ease of lens selection. I have the Rydons and Magsters and both are way better than the Oakley's I've had in the past and DEFINITELY better than anything Wiley X ever made.
