    Any suggestions on shooting glasses? I'm either looking at the ESS ICE or the Remington Interchangeables. I'm also open to advice on other brands.

    Thanks

    The Remington Interchangeables are nice because they give you so much flexibility for different shades for different lighting and background.

    Say, no insult intended, but I really got a chuckle reading your screen name. Is a real attention getter.;f ;c I am affraid to ask how you came up with it.;Y

    I fall in that category: I am waaaaaaay past 40 and I do wear bifocals and just had cataract surgery on my left eye. To me at least for GSSF type shooting that my regular Bifocals(28mm) made clear in Polycarb seems to work the best because it brings in more light and causes you to focus harder.

    I wear bifocals and am currently trying zero correction which allows me to focus on the front sight with everything being out of focus. I'll go to the prescription distance glasses for the open/dot gun.

    As far as glasses, I have some wrap-arounds and am noot 100% pleased with them. Seems that the curvature adds a little distortion. Next ones are going to be from Decot.

    I'm getting there now. I had to remove the turned down front sight I have for my AR and replace it with the original which is much fatter. I couldn't see the small one very well when I was shooting the other day. :(

    My adustment was to put the fatter sight in and lay down a field of suppression fire instead of a well placed head shot. ;e

    Still have my old gal at 11 yoa and the new pup is doing very well. When we finished in Feb. she was 9 mos old and was tracking, pointing, holding point, and retrieving. She should be awesome this season. Already scheduled my time off so I can pheasant hunt Tues, Thurs, Sat, and Sun this year from Nov until Jan. ;f

    Gotta love being a Public Servant. ;)

    TJC,

    Had I reached the lofty levels of competition that you have, I might consider retiring. You know, give everyone else a chance at 1st place. ;f

    By the way, I think I know the person that sets your work schedule. Glad that the new dog is doing well.

    BTW, I had considered the wrap-around glasses, but was concerned about the distortion. Thanks for the info.
