    I wear prescription glasses and was wondering if anyone knows where to find the colored lenses that will clip on for use in trapshooting. Thanks for you help. Chet Allinson AKA MontanaMadMan

    Thank you for all the information. This is exactly what I was looking for.

    Chet--because of a strong Rx I have the Sporter Clip-ons.
    Got them from Tom at Texas Optical. Wish I had of done it years ago.
    Tom was really helpful with size and fit. Had the lenses ground
    locally per his suggestion. They might be slightly heavier then a single
    lens system, but have never bothered me. I have four colors including
    CMT. Really makes orange jump right out there. Also have Med Purple,
    Vermillion, and Light Yellow. Depending on the conditions and club, I
    use them all. Will be adding blue for the Nevada State Shoot at Sage Hills.
    They throw the lime green targets.
    At my age (67) I wish I could have done this 20 years ago. Tom suggested I get the
    wrap around ear pieces so there would not be any slippage. He was a 100% on the
    money. A bit more troublesome putting on and off, but they stay put when sweating
    during the summer heat. If your Rx ever changes, just have new lens ground. The
    colors always stay with you.

    Just bought two pairs on eBay for $10. each, vermillion and yellow. Picked up a pair of orange in a thrift shop. Seem fine but I don't shoot competitively and don't need the high dollar jobs. Couldn't find any at all in the stores.

    I have the exact same setup including colors, except for light orange instead of light yellow. Your comments are spot on.
