Eye Protection and Shooting Glasses Review by LuckyGunner

While I was away last week paul Williams of LuckyGunner.com sent me this interesting email.

Andrew & I have been testing ballistic eye protection. Andrew is a former Hospital Corpsman HM2 (FMF) and understands the disastrous effects of poor quality eye protection.

Included in our tests was the Revision Sawfly, one of the most popular Army-approved eyewear. We also tested a range of cheaper and more expensive eyewear.

We discovered, to our surprise, that older eyewear, even if it is high quality, is brittle and will not provide much protection against bullets or shrapnel.
The results of that testing can be found in their review which I found quite interesting, since their one-year old Oakleys failed their testing.

If you are a shooter of any type, you really need to check out their review, as it might make you think a little bit about the eye protection you wear.
