Clay1 Posted February 6, 2017 Share Posted February 6, 2017 I know that there is a long running thread in the general area about glasses. What prompted me to post this here is that the requirements for a bifocal lens for a handgunner, I suspect will be different than what someone who shoots a handgun, rifle and shotgun are. I've been told that progressive lenses will give a very narrow focal plane left to right and that I might want to consider just getting a lens with a lined bifocal. I think a lined bifocal will allow me to keep scores / read but also allow good target acquisition but I am concerned about handgun front sight crispness, and shotgun sights while shooting slugs. Do you use a progressive lens for your bifocal prescription for 3 gun or do you use a lined bifocal? Next big question is about lens color. In clay target games, Decot Hy-Wyd coined a term "romancing the target". As an example, I shoot a very light rose color lens in sporting clays which makes the blaze orange targets pop against the background. For USPSA style cardboard targets, has anyone tried a brown or tan type tinted lens. I'm trying to get a nice pair of glasses that I can use for multiple outdoor type activities. I happen to be a mad fly fisherman and the brownish color lenses are very popular on the water, but I have a concern about them looking a brown cardboard colored targets.
