    Question range glasses

    Anyone know which brand/type shooting glasses work well outside while also wearing ear muffs for hearing protection. Read a couple reviews that said the glasses created gap between the muffs allowing too much noise to get in. Thanks for any help.

    Just wear foam plugs under your muffs.

    What krisspy said. I'm a big fan of plugs + muffs. I like my hearing; I'd like to keep it as long as I can. Remember, hearing damage is cumulative.

    For me, it isn't just that the muffs don't seal as well with glasses on. It's also that the muffs pinch the glasses frames into my head, which gets downright uncomfortable after about 15 minutes.

    Like MamaMaria, I'm a fan of plugs + muffs, and that's always what I wear when I'm shooting handguns by myself. However, when I'm shooting with someone (and would like to be able to communicate with them without violating range rules), my electronic muffs without earplugs are ideal. But they're quite uncomfortable with glasses. I've tried several types of glasses and all manner of muff adjustments, and it's always the same problem. Maybe someone will post with a good solution.
