Kill flash for magnified optics only.

Red dots works best with clear shields.

A fun DIY project that will leave your arm with small bits of PC shrapnel.
Haha, I can atest to the PC shrapnel... not fun, long sleeves are a must. But I agree the lexan is a great solution to this, I got a 10" by 8" for 5$ at my local Home Depot which was enough to provide protection for a few lenses. A little bit of work, but worth it.

This really is simple to do.
1. Piece of wood to drill the diameter of the circle you need.
2. Piece of Lexan
3. Drill
4. Hole saw kit.

Thats it. you can make about 20 out of that pieced of lexan.

Also. I have yet to see lexan crack, unlike the poly stuff they use for the clear lenses.
