    Anybody come up with a good design? I'm using some that I made from craft foam, but they're a little on the fragile side and tear pretty easily where the temple goes through them. They design is OK, but a little less than idea. I'm primarily using them at this point to keep the wind off my eyes (I switched to a new brand of contact lenses a few months ago, and they are less tolerant of the wind than the old ones).

    Denny Bricker a shooter at Waynesboro, PA Fish & Game invented a very novel set of blinders he calls the "Better Blinder" They attach to your ball cap with an ingenous slide mechanism and don't touch your glasses. You can get a pair by calling him at (717) 762-9797. Many of our guys are using them.

    Shamrock Leathers sells a leather ATA version of blinder for $8 that works really well. I sent them our club logo for the range where I'm a member and Shamrock made personalized blinders for around $10 each.

    I bought 10 pairs and they sold like hot cakes. Everyone I sold them to still uses them 2 years later. They really hold up nice.

    A guy by the name of Mike Lavallee sell a pair with velcro on the sides and makes the blinders movable to block out everything.

    Mike phone number is 802 343-0828

    they are about $25 a pair but will last a lifetime.
