I've used the yellow(amber) safety glasses and they were ok. They distorted my sight a bit but the price was rightuntil I bought some real shooting glasses.

Hehehe sorry if I offended there widux....just clippin at chester for giggles... As far as good shooting glasses go I use the Oakley M frames. They dont have that infernal peice in the middle that blocks your sight. They are a little salty but well worth the price.

No biggie-- my skin is thicker than many around here-I am looking now at Ranger Sporter glasses--seems like only one I can get locally(so I can beat on dealers head if problems arise) and only one in Rx. with multiple lenses.

The glasses I went with were Oakley half jackets. They came with three different interchangable lens, a hard and soft case. I think the oakleys are an excellent choice.

Hey Cam... I prefer to call it experienced not aged. Evil! Now did anybody see my glasses?? neener!

Here Widux,
http://www.safevision.net/shooting/index.html

That link will take you to safevision. Been in business for 10 years or so. Ive seen a couple of guys wearing them at the range and they seem happy....Knew I'd heard the name somewhere. Google works wonders!! Found several other companies as well. If you want to search the net go to google or yahoo search either one and type in "prescription shooting glasses" in the search bar... Got many hits and the one Id heard of was the first one. Blind squirrel found a nutt huh!!

Googled that last week-Problem is many glasses do not come in progressive lenses(no line Bifocals)-I will most likely get a set of Ranger Sporter Glasses --clear lenses with yellow and vermilliobn clip on lenses.

All oakleys have the option of putting Rx lens in them and it doesn't raise the cost too much. It may well be still cheaper to get a dedicated set of prescription shooting glasses.
