    I hate water on my glasses. Don't worry it will come together.

    shot with a guy that had a tiny rubber squigee that he would run over his glasses before his shot, worked pretty slick.

    There are hats that protect the glasses really well. Also help keep the skin cancer under control in sunny weather; since I hear your area has sun and storm. Good 'ol western hat may look weird in Florida but they work.....breakemall, really.....Bob Dodd

    put some rain x on your glasses and the water beads up and runs right off

    Won a belt buckle last winter in the rain. 35 degrees and raining real hard. I've seen shooters do well in the rain, so if you can get past the "wet" and break targets, it may help slow down the competition. A few years ago at the VA State Shoot, the rain was incredible. The wind was also kicking up on occasion. Made for a very interesting shoot.
