SPS Shooting Glasses kit

Shooting glasses for several reasons


Q: Is it advisable to wear shooting glasses for target shooting? If so, what colours? Is there any one colour that is suited for all lighting conditions?

David “Ossie” Osborne

A: I strongly recommend the wearing of shooting glasses. Many experienced competition shooters, both rifle and shotgun, wear special shooting glasses whenever they are firing.

They wear them because they believe the colour not only gives better target definition, but the lenses afford protection to the eyes.

As to choice of colour, a light shade of yellow seems to be preferred by a majority of shooters, who consider it gives a more distinct outline of the bullseye, regardless of the light conditions.

Shooters of bolt-action rifles who reload their ammunition should wear shooting glasses that have impact-resistant lenses.

This protects them from gases from a pierced primer or fragments of brass from a case-head separation.

Even trap and skeet shooters find it worthwhile to wear glasses for protection against flying particles of wads or powder grains.

The fact that a person has shot for years without protection and suffered no injury does not mean they might not come to grief on the very next shot they fire.

Glasses can be had with optical correction if required.
