Eye Protection

A few days ago I recieved the following E-Mail from Paul at Lucky Gunner:

Hey Art
Andrew & I tested both cheap and expensive ballistic eye protection,
"box-o-truth" style, to see how well they stand up to hardcore damage.

Many sryofoam heads later, we learn't that older lenses are much more
easily broken (probably because of exposure to UV light), and cheap eyepro is
cheap for a reason!

Because of these tests, I have decided to upgrade the cheap eyewear I carry
in my range bag for guests.

If you think your readers would find this interesting, perhaps you could
share it on your blog.

Kind regards,

It certainly makes me think twice about the eye protection my guest and I have been using here at HomePlace. I believe you will find this well worth checking out.



  1. Glad to know this. May have to get some new ones soon, yes?

  2. I read a lot of that post so, my son is now the proud owner of a new set of Smith Optics shooting glasses with three interchangeable lenses. When I save up some more, I will order a set for myself.

    Hope all is as well as can be with you and that you are kicking cancer's ass!

    All the best,
