Unless you live in a god forsaken communist hellhole that belives that safety margins are just a capitalist ploy, you want safety gear to go above the requirements, not just meet them. Do you think paintball masks are rated to only protect up to 300 fps?

I'm not saying shop glases aren't going to stop some things, I'm just saying it's not the appropriate tool for the job.

I'm pretty sure that a kevlar helmet is sufficient to protect me on a construction site. It doesn't have the appropriate ANSI rating however.

If I take my M frames as an example again:

I've been told by an Oakley rep that the lense will stop a 12 guage buckshot at 30 feet. Even if this is exagerated, I've seen enough testimonials from real world operator saying their Oakleys saved their eyes from IEDs or debris blasts.

HOWEVER, since my M frame doesn't offer secure wrap around straps, I won't field them for airsoft, since I expect to get shot in the face every now and again, and a slipping lense would suck.

Unless your shop glasses offer secure wrap around, buy a paintball mask. Even if you shop glasses offer wrap around, buy a paintball mask.

This would clear out the idiots pretty quick.
You cannot entirely waive your rights via a waiver. It's been documented on ASC, so search around.

Starbucks hot chocolate is pretty good because of one secret I know from working there; Add vanilla syrup. Not to much, in a 14 oz cup about a tea spoon is enough. It makes it taste so much smoother.
Annoyingly good with numbers
