The glasses the OP has weren't sunglasses. They were proper ballistic shooting glasses and they're not cheap, around $125 MSRP IIRC. Basically the same as the CF issued Sawfly's or whatever, they're still ballistics just not sealed. They'll prevent you from having your eye taken out in a direct hit but not if it bounces at a weird angle and gets inside.
