    I have seen shooters using magnetic/blinders where there is a strip of metal inside the blinder that attaches to a magnet on the frame of his glasses. Does anyone know the name of these and if they still make them? Thanks

    There are velcro versions of them and they are hard to find unless you spot them at a big shoot.

    Never heard of magnet ones

    You can buy magnetic adhesive strips at Walmart!

    I tried the strips they arent strong enough cause they are a soft magnet.

    But I have a new idea there are really stong small magnets that are metal discs about the size of a thumb tack that should hold great with a little crazy glue on the side of the blinders.

    If you want an idea of what I'm talking about watch the episode of American Guns from last night for what they used on the "belt buckle gun"

    I guess it's just too hard to thread the glasses through the blinder.

    I got the score buster ones years ago. They are nice because I can remove them to wipe the sweat from my eyes and the moisture from inside the lenses. Something you can't do with the ones that thread through. And I can put them on or take them off if the conditions change during a round.
