    Although I have only been using shooting glasses for about 10 months, I have found that whereas the "background" should be taken into account, of equal importance is the color of the targets. At the range where I do most of my shooting, the trap targets are green. A blue lens really makes the targets stand out. When shooting orange birds, vermillion or a pale orange seems to work very well. I know quite a few shooters who use nothing but yellow or yellow-orange lenses and they swear by them.It is all a matter of how you see and perceive and react to color. Good shooting!

    I currently use vermillion but I am considering changing. I am having trouble on cloudy days picking up orange targets. Any suggestions.

    I have several shades. But I believe Decot's Bronze will satisfy most backgrounds and targets. But I will also say not all of us see the same and color combo's will change from place to place. Advise, try several colors before you purchase. - Jim

    Being color blind to red and or green will make a difference. Testing is the only way to be sure you are getting the best color. You will know when you find it, as the target will be bright and appear to glow. HMB
