I have to disagree there. Shop goggle lenses themselves might be better at stopping a BB than a paintball goggle would be, the temples and arms of shop goggles carry no ANSI ratings. They also don't seal around the eyes, making a BB ricochet getting into your eyes a very likely possibility.
As I've said before, I'm down to one eye and I'm a big fan of protecting it. Nothing but ESS for me. I also get a little nervous in "safe areas" that don't require barrel condoms.
