    I am looking for a good set of shooting glasses with a lense set. I'd like to spend under $200. So far I like the Randolph Ranger XL. Any thoughts on best shooting glasses under $200. thanks in advance

    I love my rangers. I would recommend the cable that wraps around your ears. After a while my ears start to bother me and I got the longer cables. as long as the regular cables keep the glasses in place then I think they would be a better option.

    You can't go wrong with L&M Lenses. Linda and Mike have a great product and stand behind what they sell. Here is the link to their website.

    I own and shoot with Rangers and like them very much. I bought them used in mint condition with 12 sets of lenses. I was a new shooter and loved the idea of being able to experiment with different colors and not having to constantly wonder.

    That being said, I have a pair of HiDefSpex, which are Pilla by their old name. They are fixed lens, max target orange 40's. I have to say, they are better lenses than the Rangers. Of course, I may be splitting hairs with a meat axe, but there is a difference.

    I also have been shooting with the Autumn Gold Transitions which are a Trivex lens and they seem to have just about the clarity of the Pilla's.

    If you gave me a blank check and told me to go buy shooting glasses, I'd buy the Pilla's. If you gave me a budget, (don't take that the wrong way, I don't mean Rangers are low budget, just not as expensive as the Pilla's) I'd buy the Rangers.

    Good Luck,
    Chip

    I tried a bunch of them at The Grand - and liked all of them - until I started to get confused.

    Had the best "sales experience" with L&M. Bought the glasses on the spot. I called them a few weeks later for a lens for night shooting. They had my records and sent another lens set that arrived in three days.

    So it boiled down to the seller instead of the actual pair of glasses.

    Decot, Decot, Decot and Decot. You will not be sorry that you bought Decot. Been shooting with them for over 12 years. Happy as hell that I bought them.

    My understanding and reviewing the Randolph website... the Ranger XL is gone... replaced by the "Edge"... you can get the "Classic", but there is no longer an "XL" offering, although you may find NOS XLs out in the marketplace...

    I could be wrong... my Go2 guy is Wayne Morgan at Morgan Optical in Olean, NY.

    Thank you gentlemen. I think I will select between the Decot, Post4optics, and Ranger. The L&M's and Pilla's are a little beyond my price range.

    Terry, I will call you to discuss the Post 4's.

    I have been using the same Decot Hy-Wide frame since 1984. They have held up great.

    I've been using Decots since 1988,great product, great service, you can go to any large shoot and there is always someone that reps. them there, so if you had a problem, you can get them fixed right away, not so with the "other brands"
