Why You Should not Buy Cheap Shooting Glasses

Never go cheap on protective gear

When it comes to shooting sports and activities like hunting and trap shooting, or tactical training and just regular trips to the gun range, protection is always something that is needed. You do not want to ever short yourself when it comes to protecting yourself, as that can just lead to mishaps and injuries, or even death. That being said, one crucial piece of protective gear that should always be a part of your range bag, is a good pair of shooting glasses. Now this can be either regular shooting glasses or sunglasses, but some form of eyewear should be in your bag at all times. 

Shooting glasses are not bulletproof, so you can’t expect to get shot directly in the eyes and it keeps you safe, but instead they are impact resistant to keep out the unwanted things in your eyes. This can include fragments, dirt, shell casings, or any other unwanted things that you may come across when you are on the range.

However, many people head over to their local sporting goods store and pick up a basic pair of sunglasses or those five dollar protective glasses, that are more designed for protecting your eyes from grass clippings while you are mowing the lawn. That being said, if you are spending the money on quality firearms, attachments such as optics, and the ammo, why would you short yourself on protective gear? 

Let’s take a look at the reasons to purchase quality tactical eyewear. 

Better Protection Quality

Higher quality shooting glasses will undoubtedly offer you a higher quality of protection. When you are shooting, whether you are on the range or in actual combat survival situations, there are going to be things that pose a risk to your eyes. You only get one set of eyes, so keeping them protected with quality eyewear is essential.

Being on the range, especially an outdoor range, puts you at risk of the elements, shell casings, and bullet fragments. High quality shooting glasses will keep your protected from these threats, so you can stay on target and make sure that you get the job done.

Enhanced Visibility

Clarity is of the utmost importance on the gun range, whether you are in close quarters or shooting at a distance. The last thing you want is to misidentify a target and then have there be some mishap. On an outdoor range, you also have the issue of glare and UV rays beating down on you, getting in your eyes, and preventing you from hitting your shot. 

This is where a quality pair of shooting glasses comes into play, and in this case sunglasses could be the way to go. A solid pair of tactical sunglasses would help protect your eyes from the glare and UV rays, as well as provide you the protection that you need so you do not have to worry about any issues there.
