Basically, i trust my glasses and right now I'm not financially in a position to go and get $300 glasses. And like I said, I play outdoors with a few friends out on an acreage and not at meets, but sometimes I make it into the city to play an indoor game therefore I can just stop the game when I want. But I'm glad you all seem so concerned for my well being .
Dude... I have a pair of shooting glasses that cost me like $15 (I think) and a paintball mask that cost me like $40...you don't need $300 dollar glasses.

Guys... small fact for you; the ONLY type of protective goggles allowed EVERYWHERE in Canada are paintball-rated masks/goggles.

The rest is on a field by field basis.

Dont risk your eyes for a game, it's really not worth it.

I just have a $60 paintball mask...my point was why should you skimp on goggles that will protect your eyes. As long as it's a snug fit, and is rated correctly, then theres no problem...but a lot of safety glasses have a space between your face and the glasses, just big enough for a bb to spin up into and wreak hell on your eye.

Also I was saying that if you have so much money that you didn't spend on buying a good gun (hence semi cheap guns, I assume) that you could afford a decent paintball mask.

I think its pretty simple as for glasses. Take 1 min to think about how his one of your eyes worth... 15$, 50$, 100$....I can promess you that if you get one of those bb in an eye it will fuck it up pretty damm good since a lot of guys shoot around 400 fps... and on auto so you will probably get more than one in the face. Just think about those people that have one glass eye and cant see distances properly now cuz they lost one eye. 15$, 50$ 100$...

dont know about you guys... but I would think about it just a min should be enought to make up your mind.

Just for your info, I got bollé T-800 and they are pretty damm safe with a nice seal all around so no bb's can make their way in.

Cheers and think, 15$,50$,100$

Ok, I think I was not clear here.

THE RIGHT FUCKING TOOL FOR THE RIGHT FUCKING JOB.

There is a world of difference between kinetic energy and thermal energy.

Even if your precious shop glasses should do the job, the are not rated to do the job.

God damnit, what is so hard to grasp here?!

Re: shop glasses, Hell I wear those things every day, and ya they sure will protect you from thins flying strait at your face, let me see what I wear them for um when I am using a sledge hammer ( in front of me), um hitting a punch or a chisel w/t a hammer,( in front of me again), grinding something ( in front of me) using a drill, using my die grinders, w/t various things on the end, cut of wheel, sanding disks, and reamers, all of those things I am looking dead on. so when a cut off wheel decides to self destruct and I get it in the face, oh it is coming dead on not, and well I will tell you the shop glasses work great, I sort of wish that I had been wearing a face shield as well. but when some some claymore goes of, or some young kid holds a m203 shell around the corner and you got bb's bouncing off everything. make sure you are looking dead on oh and maybe put your hands up to cover the sides, and the bottoms of the glasses, Anyone that thinks wearing shop glasses playing airsoft is safe enough, is bloody well stupid in my books.

An AEG for under $180? Think about it...

The Buyairsoft.ca site gives you a few ideas of what to expect in prices. Research will tell you the rest.
I agree with Grey, in you get what you pay for, but the same can be said for the more expensive AEG’s. You could pay out the grand for a main line gun, but get a lemon. The way the new clones from China are, they start off bad but work out the bugs from the market feed back. So you see better products coming out with every new batch. That’s why we’re seeing more metal bodies on the Chinese models. Cost is everything; we should put down people who get them to start off with the cheaper guns, at least their trying.
