Safety & Security
How Good Is “Good Enough”?
Just imagine a guy checking out a $29.95 fire extinguisher for his home and asking the clerk, “Got something cheaper? Maybe one that doesn’t work so well? Kinda dribbly? Not fully pressurized?” Or a pistol shooter on the range thinking, “I don’t need those expensive shooting glasses. I’ll just squint my eyes and make ’em smaller targets…” Or some dude who stores his long guns in a cardboard box and, as a theft deterrent, double-wraps the carton in duct tape.
That’s not you, right? Well, safety and security doesn’t have to be unreasonably expensive; and as for “effective,” it just has to be good enough; appropriate for the situation. Here are some options to fire up your noodle—and a few you may not be familiar with.
Champion Target announced across-the-board improvements in their Eyes and Ears shooting glasses and range muffs for 2011. Now all glasses feature over 99-percent UV protection, and meet or exceed ANSI Z-87 protection standards. Four of the new designs achieve MIL-PRF-31013, 188.8.131.52 ballistic resistance, providing military-grade protection. Light, sleek and comfortable, they’re also bargain-priced. Sound suppression of their passive range muffs and plugs has been increased, and you can save even more by buying a matched “combo kit,” available in an array of colors and styles.
