Why Buy an Expensive Scope But Cheap Shooting Glasses?

Look through quality glass all around

When it comes to your shooting gear, you do not want to go cheap. Being a gun enthusiast is not the cheapest hobby in the world, and there is a reason for that. One of the most common attachments you see people spending some serious money on is a rifle scope, as they want to look through quality glass. However on the same note, they will buy cheap shooting glasses. That being said, why spend money on an expensive rifle scope, then buy cheap shooting glasses? Wouldn’t you want to look through quality glass all around?

The team at FortKnight Optics has looked through plenty of quality rifle scopes, and we firmly believe in looking through quality shooting glasses as well. Let’s break down the importance of having quality glass all around.

Why Buy an Expensive Rifle Scope

When it comes to being an accurate shooter, whether you are hunting or target shooting or taking part in some other shooting sport, a quality rifle scope is absolutely essential. You do not want to put cheap optics on your firearms for a variety of reasons. 

For one, you risk not being accurate. When you have a cheap optic, the recoil from a firearm can knock it loose, hindering where your shots are being placed. This can make for life or death situations, or also take away from your food supply if you are a hunter. That being said, having a quality rifle scope is crucial for your accuracy.

Piggybacking off of that, another reason that a quality rifle scope is important is clarity. With cheaper optics, you risk scratches, fogging, and other aspects that can hinder your clarity when looking through those crosshairs. Having a more quality piece of glass on your rifle will greatly enhance your clarity, making it easier for you to put your shots on target.

Don’t Forget Quality Shooting Glasses

The glass you attach to your firearm is one thing, but the glasses you place on your face and look through the scope with should also be pretty quality. You do not want to have on cheap shooting glasses paired with an expensive rifle scope for several reasons. 

The first reason that quality shooting glasses are justified, is that you are already spending the money on a quality rifle scope, why go cheap with your gear? For example, if you are spending hundreds of dollars on a rifle scope, why would you only spend a few dollars on your shooting glasses? It just seems silly. 

Next, quality shooting glasses are essential for staying accurate and keeping your vision clear. Cheaper shooting glasses will fog up, get scratched, cracked, and not be as effective when it comes to having clear vision. Imagine if you have a crystal clear rifle scope that is just inhibited by cheap shooting glasses, it somewhat defeats the purpose doesn’t it?

Quality shooting glasses also provide higher levels of protection. While they are not bulletproof, better quality shooting glasses will protect your eyes greatly, keeping you safe from debris such as shell casings, dirt, the elements, and so on. That being said, it is much easier to stay on target.
