A few months ago, I was in the market to upgrade my cheap eye protection that I have had for years. Being mostly a shotgun shooter, I thought that I would look at something manufactured by a company that is in the shotgun arena. My logic was, that if you can make great shotguns, then surely you must be able to produce great shotgun safety equipment as well. So naturally the big names that came to my mind were Remington, Browning and Beretta. I know I know, there are lots of other great shotgun makers out there. However not all shotgun companies offer their own line of safety equipment. Anyway, with that being said. I went on-line and looked at everyone's inventory for safety glasses. Surprisingly, there was not a ton of offerings like I imagined. Nonetheless, my attention was captured by the Beretta Performance Shooting Frames.
Now keep in mind, that never saw these in the flesh. My only interaction with these glasses was what I could see and read about on-line. I think what really sold me on the glasses besides their low purchase point was the amount of unobstructed vision. I liked how my eyes could clearly see objects coming from the side of me without getting lost in a construction piece. Remember, I shoot a lot of sporting clays. And the thing with sporting clays is that you don't know from what direction the clays will be coming from. They could be thrown from behind you over your head, they could come right at you or they could come from somewhere on the side of you.
So I decided to pull the trigger and make the purchase. I will have to say that the glasses are lightweight. They glasses do have a very comfortable nose piece and the glasses stay put on your ears. The field of vision of the glasses was amazing and everything that I hoped it would be. However, they are large. I guess it has to do with the design of the lenses, but they just seem to cover your whole face. Don't get me wrong, you want proper eye protection and these glasses do deliver on that. But they just seem a bit too big.
