    Glasses

    Hey team
    Im looking to purchase some glasses for clay shooting, no idea whats good and whats not.

    I have an issue with my left eye as the pupil doesnt dilate or contract with light properly, so normal light can be excessively bright. So need something with a tinted lense.
    Lost a few clays today with normal sunglasses as the frame was interfering with my right eye for left to right crossers, causing the left eye to dominate and I'm right handed etc etc.

    Simple fix is to put a little opaque sticker on the left lens at the spot that eye focuses on the front bead. You still have peripheral vision to help you get on target but it won't dominate when you come on point. Otherwise you could of course close your left eye and shoot like that. Hope that helps.

    Tinted monocle?

    More seriously though - what are you looking for? If it's just standard sunglasses that don't have a frame that gets in your way I think you'll just have to try on a few pairs and see what works for you. If you're looking for something that allows you to have a more tinted lens on your left eye than your right then they seem to make those too. 'Tifosi Tyrant 2.0' for example (no experience with these, just googled it).

    These are excellent shooting glasses.
    Buy them direct from Rudy Project in Australia.

    Every time something really bad happens people cry out for safety and the government answers by taking rights away from good people.
    The solution to preventing acts of terror and violence by bad or deranged people is not to disarm good and rational people.

    Essentially need frameless with a tint, polarised seem to suit as well.
