    I wear glasses and don't have contacts. Will I have problems at a GSSF match as far as eye protection goes? Can I just shoot in my regular glasses?

    No one will give you flack for not wearing shooting glasses. However, I've seen a guy shred a round into the metal edge of a wooden baracade and slice up his hand and face. Get contacts and wear real shooting glasses, or wear polycarbonate Rx glasses. If you catch a ricochet in the eye you'll never shoot again.

    Prescription shooting glasses are also an option.
    There are a lot of shooting glasses available with a Rx insert. I had Wiley-X glasses with a Rx insert and interchangable lenses, but was not happy with the difficulty of changing the lenses. I now use Rudy Project shooting glasses with a Rx insert. I highly recommend them. They are not cheap, but how much is your vision worth?

    I may give you some flak if I see you wearing that Auburn hat though!

    OK, I am a BAMA FAN, I have been suffering as of late since I am old enough to remember 3 of the NCs. Sooner or later, hopefully sooner, we will be back.
