these dont really work when you're behind them. they'll just crush your face in, instead of blowing it off.

I'd rather have a crushed face then have a huge hole in my head. Also I don't usually stand behind .22 bullets.

Think big picture dude.

If they can stop a .40 from that range, then they can keep shrapnel out of your eyes. That's the difference between stitches and bruising or learning braille.

Its the shotgun advertisements I love. "Stop a shot gun blast at 30 ft!"... yeah where's the rest of your face?! "Gone! But your bright blues are still there!"

Now pop them with a 7mm STW, a 338 Lapua or 45-70 something with some real balls (not saying a 40 is shitty) and see what happens... they are already pouched.

I would venture to believe that 7mm STW would punch right through them, at least i think they would, i have seperated a mooss from it's head with those rounds
I have a pair of ESS gogles that are scratched and I want to do this but I can never bring myself to doing it after I paid $100 for the goggles, think my guests or someone who has forgotten their eye protection can wear them.

Well no shit. They're not MEANT to be bulletproof, but they just are, because they're designed for shrapnel.

Hmm I seem to recall you saying that they would be "already pouched". Which I assume to mean "well they wouldn't even stand up to a 338 Lapua".

I refuse to dis these goggles. Simply amazing!

To think these are *paintball* goggles stopping a .40 - wow. I guess they're safe for airsoft then
