A lot of clubs in my area are changes to green targets, with mostly green backgrounds I have found it to be difficult. Any suggestion on what color lenses to wear?

Thanks for you help.

Medium purple works pretty good for me. They deaden the background greens and let the brighter green target stand out. I was actully going to try some shade of light to mid green lenses. Wondering if anyone has tried those ?

hmb,

I'm another one of those red/green colorblind people. When those green targets are thown at night with good lighting they look like beachballs flying through the air. It doesn't mean I can hit them any better though. Lol.

What SR1 said. I have light and dark purple which seem to work OK, but if I had to shoot a steady diet of green birds (which I like) I'd buy a set of blue lenses.

I like green targets against a solid background. They show up surprisingly well against green trees. I use a bronze lens for all the different targets I shoot against all backgrounds.

The decot hy-green works well with proper background. Have a set of blue glass lens for a decot frame, 67 m/m would ship for $25.00. Gary E. Gasaway.

I had never shot green targets until last year in Reno and I went from a 97 average down to a 93. They just look huge and I was shooting behind them all week.

Be careful with blue ice lenses. My eyes were burning after shooting in the sun with them. I had to lay cold wet rags on my eyelids just to get some relief. My eye doctor later told me to stay away from blue lenses, he doesn't recommend them to anyone.

Redlands Club in SoCal has been using green targets for it seems like forever. Some very good scores are shot there. I had a special set of green lenses made for me around 1983 or so just to use there and at Reno, Nevada. (Sage Hill)
Worked very well. These lenses were made by Dr. Don Yochem, he is now in Apple Valley, California

Most shooters these days just use something like Target Orange and do very well on the green targets with that color.

Post 4 Optics sells Kiwi Glow high def lenses that work pretty well. They're a light green color.

I used to hate green targets, but have shot enough of them now that it really doesn't matter anymore.

Barry:

These came from Post 4, supposedly used by USAF pilots. Just trying to dispose of the litter collected from over 47 yrs of shooting. Would offer a very mean German wife be don't think would have many takers. My last dog died several years ago. What else is there. GEG.
