Eye protection might well be the least exciting shooting accessory in our range bags, but it is certainly one of the most essential. We only have two eyes, and a moment of neglect can have tragic and permanent consequences.
One of the more interesting options I’ve come across is the shooting glasses offered by Hunter’s HD Gold. I had the good fortune to meet the President of Hunters HD Gold, Brian Conley, at the NRA Annual Meeting earlier this year, and he offered me a pair of their glasses to try. I took him up on it, and have been wearing a pair of their “Gauge” glasses since late spring. I’m primarily a pistol shooter, and participate in USPSA and steel matches all summer long.
I’ve typically worn a set of glasses from another large manufacturer (begins with “O”) with interchangeable lenses for different lighting conditions. That works fine, as long as you’re willing to carry the spare lenses with you all day. But one of the great features of the Hunters HD Gold line of glasses is that they feature photochromic lenses which become lighter or darker as the ambient light changes. Combined with the high definition gold tint, this means great visibility whether indoors or outside, in bright sunlight or shade, and in all types of weather.
One thing I was curious about, however, was how well I might be able to see different fiber optic sight colors, or red-dot sighting systems through the gold lenses. I shouldn’t have worried; both red and green fiber optics and the dot in my Aimpoint sight all popped clearly into view. Bright white painted steel targets didn’t wash out the picture, either, as the glasses provided excellent contrast between my sights and the steel plates. I even tried them with my archery sight, with the same great results. In every shooting situation I’ve worn them in, the Hunters HD Gold glasses have helped cut glare and enhance contrast and clarity.
Hunters HD Gold glasses are available in a variety of styles, and are made in the USA with impact-rated and UV blocking Trivex lenses. Need prescription lenses? Hunters HD Gold glasses can also be made with single vision prescriptions, or with bi- or tri-focal lenses using their TriVueLens progressive design which eliminates lines and image jumps typical to some lined lenses.
If you are looking for advanced eye protection for the shooting sports which offers both safety and great vision, I’d suggest giving Hunters HD Gold a look. Detailed information and retail links are available on their website at: https://huntershdgold.com/
I’ve reviewed firearms, food, gun parts, airguns, and clothing, but this is the first social media service I have ever had the opportunity to test drive. This is an extremely positive review of a service I used from SocialNetworkElite.com to increase my Instagram (IG) numbers. Everybody doesn’t use IG but if you do and don’t have a network television show, or a staff of folks helping you, I got a recommendation for you.
I didn’t know what to expect when the CEO, Justin H., of this new company hit me up. He gave me 30 days to kick the tires of this thing. I was leery. I didn’t want “bots” or fake accounts. The process was easy. The growth was organic. It didn’t happen over night but once it began it was constant. I am glad I agreed to be a “test dummy” on this thing. The results are in. I hit my thirty-day mark in a couple of days from now.
At the time of this post, I kept over 600 new followers. I had more but I am persnickety. I un-followed some folks, that didn’t share my view of things. You get to decide. This service works folks! According to IG, my profile has been visited 813 times in the last seven days.

If you like the feel of a 1911 but prefer a 9 mm shot, check out this new gun from rock island armory. It even comes with the exotic .22 TCM barrel conversion. Almost like having to guns in one. The company is solid and originally out of the Philippines. These brothers do good work. They are nice people to talk to —all around. Here’s me and the head dude of RIA, “Bolo”.
For every day carry it’s a little heavy but depending on your size, you might be able to work it out. It is definitely a collectible and a fun gun to own though.
I really enjoyed shooting this gun.
RIA is famous for mastering the development of the 1911 platform. For over 30 years, they’ve advanced the scope of their research and engineering team with the commercial launch of the meteoric 22 TCM cartridge in the 1911 format. Delivering over 2000 fps in a handgun while offering both single stack and high capacity options, the TCM series introduces the most potent and versatile 1911 in the market today. It’s known for light recoil without sacrifice in muzzle energy and penetrating impact abilities. Also built in mid size, full size and high capacity options with both Standard and Tactical configurations, each TCM series handgun includes a drop-in 9mm barrel adding another proven ammunition option in one firearm. Once you rule the fire breathing dragon, you’ll never want to put it down. MSRP $820
Rock island armory
The TCM Rock Standard MS HC is constructed in 4140 Ordnance steel and refined by our carefully managed hand fitting process. (not a light gun)
It’s built to drive the factory original Rock Island 22 TCM cartridge at over 1850fps and features a 4.25” barrel with penetrating impact and unprecedented light recoil. Add a double stack mag well with 17-round capacity and the TCM MS Rock Standard earns respect for delivering a constant high velocity payload. Includes a skeletonized hammer and trigger with adjustable over travel stop and low profile anti-snag front and rear sights. This pistol is fitted with checkered polymer grips and finished with a durable parkerized coating.
Complete with a drop-in 9mm accessory barrel, the TCM Rock Standard offers the best in old and new.
If you’re a collector or just enjoy shooting, get one of these.
