These guys may have what you want. I can't check their current prices cause my Acrobat needs to be re-installed.

No, but I should since I normally shoot from the hip and over my head. Trying to mimic those cool kats shooting AK's.

Bad pic but you get the idea. They are transitions lenses. Cost almost $300. They are very snug on my face and provide good coverage.

No, nothing extra, I just don't shoot your PLR-16...LOL

Too funny. TBS is about to fire it up. We take cover. Too funny.

my regular glasses are already safety glasses, Polycarbonate lenses.
But I do wear a hat with a bill. I had too many damned shells dump down between my glasses and eyes

That's all I have. I used to have a set of earmuffs with attached full-coverage eye-protection that had enough clearance for Rx glasses underneath, but they were only good for handguns (uncomfortable/impractical for rifles).

This wouldn't have anything to do with your recent... ummmm... experience, would it?

(ETA: Never mind... didn't see ScaryGuy's comment above. )

Mike, No, I don't. I just use my ordinary everyday eyeglass wear. Unless I'm shooting at something real close, such as steel plates at 25 feet, I get a lots of back splatter from lead bullets in that case yes.

Never take your glasses off to take a pic of your glasses

Mike, I've owned three pair of prescription Oakleys... Yes, they are expensive. But it's the best money you'll ever spend on your eyes brother. Do it and don't think twice.

I really like these, with the prescription insert. Take the insert dow, and have a second pair of lenses fitted into it.

This'd be my second choice. Second only because I lose shit all the time. Oakleys get expensive when you lose them.

Glasses won't help you there...

Honestly, the prescription Oakleys arent too too bad if your script isn't really fucked up, and are worth the cash.

My scrip has the ballistic plastic as well.
That's all I feel I need, but then, guns don't blow up on me the way they do on you, mike.

Generally no, unless I am shooting a weapon that lacks robust safety features or have other reason not to trust completely.
