    Youth Shooting Glasses?

    I'm trying to find a good pair of shooting glasses for my 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter. The most important aspects, besides protective function, are comfort and interaction with ear muffs. I'm concerned that the arms on the glasses will impede the ability of the muffs to get a good seal, and thereby lead to poor hearing protection.

    Anyone have good suggestions for shooting glasses for the kids?

    Here are some kid size glasses. I don't know about getting an ear muff seal over the wide temples, though.

    Remington has a package deal.

    Once upon a time, I saw a little rubber filler piece to slide over glasses' temples to give a better muff seal. I cannot now find one, but if you contacted an industrial safety supply company, they might have it.
    I have a few facts and a lot of opinions.

    I have an 8 year old that the Winchester youth glasses (from Wally World) fit perfectly on.

    Go to your local welding supply house or industrial supply house. What you are looking for is Uvex Safety Glasses. The ear pieces adjust for lenth and work well for children. An added plus is they are 1/2 the price of "shooting glasses" at Wally World.
