Hi guys,
I got my new eye prescription yesterday, and ordered a pair of progressive blue glass lens Pilot frame Costa's today.
I know they will be awesome for fishing, but I'm curious as to how you guys feel about reflective mirrored lens glasses for goose and duck hunting?
I know we all camo all up, so what are your thoughts?
An old guy told me once that if he took me goose hunting I would have to dull the bluing on my 870 so it didn't reflect all over .

I wear Costas 99% of the time but never ever wear glass lenses while shooting.

if a pellet hits the lens it will shatter if it is glass but polycarbonate or trivex lenses are more protective. As far as flaring birds think about your hide and if you wear a hat and keep your head down it shouldnt matter. No gawking at birds..only guy looking at them should be the guy working them

No to protect your eyes.
One pellet can shatter glass. It happens and is never pretty.
You actually should only wear polycarbonite lenses when shooting.
