    I'm looking to buy my first real pair of shooting glasses. I liked the Decot Hy-wyd and thought I found my set, but, when it came down to my prescription, my right eye is far too bad and was told that an RX lens wouldn't fit in them. I was told to look at the Ranger Sporter.

    I really don't know too much about shooting glasses so I was wondering if anyone has these/has tried them and their opinion on them or any other suggestions?

    They are great used them when I needed scripts. Still use them with a plano clear lense for the base. Got Lasik.

    They're excellent, have used them for years. I have a pretty heavy prescription for the right eye.

    The adjustable bridge is a nice feature for getting them in just the right place on your face, and also makes them potentially useable for driving, etc.

    T.A.K,

    My prescription is thick enough that none of the other Ranger versions would work except the XLW with prescription insert, or the Sporter. However, I did not like the wrap around style. I bought mine through Morgan Optical at the Ohio State shoot, with pale yellow prescription lenses and the polarized copper and CMT clip ons.

    I am well satisfied with them so far.
