Body armour has to do more than just be able to stop a round - they have to be able to disperse the energy otherwise the user bears the full brunt of the force anyway.

Good one. I wish someone would come up with a design that is not as big and ugly as all pb goggles. I own hatch, bolle, probably 5 pairs of glasses and a pair of JT pb goggles. JT's are the only ones that never fogged to the point where I couldn't see. Not even once.

one's face will probably shatter but the glasses will remain un-broken and eyeballs remain unscathed. Theres really no point in wearing these unless they are impact absorbent.

at least you'd feel just a little safer when in contact point-blank with a loaded gun pointed to your eye.

As a paintball player, and a Grill owner, I can seriously vouch for this mask. It's probably the best paintball mask in the world. VERY comfy, won't fog, etc.
If you were to get shot in the face with a .40 while wearing these, the energy may be distributed nicely along the (very comfy) foam lining (You'll be pretty bruised), and along the flexible rubber body of the mask.

What about a .357?

Don't forget, just because something is rated to .22, doesn't mean it can't take anything larger.

Exactly how many joules is a .40 at that range?

Again - prime concern with those bad boys is keeping shrapnel out of your eyes, and the goggles will do that very well. There was even a recent article in the Maple Leaf about a soldier whose convoy was hit by an IED, very badly injuring his face and head, but fully recovered because the goggles prevented any lasting damage to his eyes/brain.

Ergo they are still very worth wearing.
