    +1 for the Oakleys. I like my eyes so I tend to want something that will keep them safe. If you have the cash invest in some w-frames with different lenses for all light levels. I have two sets of frames and 8 lenses now so I am safe AND stylish for any light level.

    Hot brass is the reason I always wear a hat when I shoot (plus glasses).

    I wear Wiley X SG-1 there great glasses for the money with
    interchangeable smoke and clear lenses for shooting indoors.

    HERE is a small .avi of a Ballistic test of .15cal @ 650 ft/sec hitting the lens.

    Go to a welding supply store. The same safety glasses that someone would use while grinding, etc. will work fine for shooting comfortably.
