Tell me I didn't waste my money...

I bought a couple paintball face masks made by JT....
Since I 've been browsing the forums, I've seen a lot of posts about googles, stressing not to buy "Cheap shit"...
These masks were about $40 canadian each.
Do you think these lens' will hold up to airsoft? I hope so. I'm not too keen on the idea of taking one and shooting it point blank range to test it...

it's the goggles can stop a paintball, they'll stop an airsoft BB!

FYI, paintball goggles are rated to stop a paintball to 300 fps muzzle velocity. (it says so right on the goggle straps)

I've own many pairs of JT's. I would not wear anything else made from the paintball industry, call me old school but back then Scotts and Vents were kicking around.

Stopping a shotgun shell isn't hard... I think you meant shotgun (buck)shot.

*razz*

I thought those were for stopping things like flying bits of unexploded black powder, oh well.

Need something that protects the rest of the face I think. Getting shot in the nose hurts.

Nose aint as bad as lips or chipped teeth.

as long as you don't smell like him.....

anyways, I bought the full face rigs because I caught a couple shots on bare skin and I thought "Fuck that, I don't want to catch one of these in the face".

Usualy the "cheap" reffers to the quality, not the strength, cheapo paintball goggles will usualy fog like a bitch, where some expensive pairs do not, some do, but you got a better %
