    Call Mike at post 4. He took my prescription over the phone, I had the
    glasses in three days. Great to deal with.

    The best deal if you need prescription lenses, is the following in my opinion is: get a pair of Ranger sporter in clear base lenses in your scripts & then get colored clip ons. This way you only need to cahnge your base lenses when your script changes.

    I have the Rangers with clip-on colored lenses. Love them.
    My Rx is fairly strong, +5 and +5.25. Had then ground with
    progressive. Then took my gun in and she measured the optical
    center and had them ground. Worked out perfect.
    So from now on, all I need to do is get a new Rx. Colors stay the same.
    Got mine from Tom at Texas Optical.

    I shoot with contacts and use plano sets... so what I say is an observer on behalf of my members...

    A number of my guys/gals use the Ranger Sporter that employs a set of clear Rx lenses with clip-on plano colored lenses and they like them...

    Then a couple guys use the Ranger XLW with the insert that attaches to the nose bridge with clip-on plano lenses to the regular frame and those who like the "wrap" style like those...

    I have dealt with Wayne and Harold Morgan @ Morgan Optical for 10+ years for myself and on behalf of my guys and gals... no one is more professional or works harder to make sure you're happy...

    best regards,

    Another vote for Ranger RX Sporters. The nosepiece that adjusts up and down is a nice feature. You could wear them for everyday as well as shooting.

    I have always wondered if looking through 2 lens instead of one causes any deflection of light or any other negative factors? I have a pair of NYX and it's a pain taking them apart to clean 2 lens before I shoot. Also, everytime you change lens, you get finger prints on the lense.

    My concern had always been the weight... two pair of lenses, two frames (essentially)...

    When I started shooting, I used inexpensive clear safety glasses with my contacts. It was then recommended to use Rx lenses (and to get them colored) for shooting instead of contacts, so I had my optical guy take my unused pair of Porsche sunglass frames that used changeable lenses and had Rx made for them... big, metal and heavy... used them for a while, but they'd put dents into my nose after each day, but I used them for a couple years... until I need my first replacement Rx...

    At that point, but before the Sporter came out I chose to switch back to wearing contacts using Randolph Rangers... found out about Harold and Wayne Morgan... but everyone can't wear contacts...

    Jay
