Just keep an eye out.
They sold me a wrong Rx insert, that couldn`t be clipped onto the safety frame correctly. After a complain at peltor (3M) I received two Rx inserts, that fit perfectly.

Just wantto say, have the optomotrist show you, how to clip in the Rx frame. If it dosn`t fit snug on the frame, complain about it.

Welcome, Twitchey,
I highly recommend wrap-around glasses, as I've been the recipient of a couple of bullet fragments which made it back to the firing line, and either one of them was more than capable of wrecking an eyeball. The one in my chin was just smaller than my fingernail, and the one in my neck was smaller. Whatever the reason, hot, heavy slivers of metal are absolutely capable of making it into your body, so protect yourself.

I had a Ma Deuce KB on me. My Oakley Fives saved both of my eyes. I became a firm believer in wearing eye protection while shooting that day.

Matt, you are lucky to be alive. You can't get worse than having a .50 KB on you (unless you get creative).

FWIW, run a google search for OTS safety glasses. OTS is the abbreviation for "Over the Specs"- safety glasses with side shields that fit over your regular glasses.

As far as the temple bar breaking the seal of muffs- my muffs have a seal soft enough to conform very well over my safety glasses. For VERY loud weapons, I do use plugs and muffs- but that is because I have seen the results of my audiograms, and I'm getting too old to learn sign language.

BTW, a 150 dB hammer drill? Good LORD! John Henry Rock drill is not quite THAT bad! Get some distance between you and that thing if you can! Even with good plugs and good muffs, you can only get about 38-39 dB attenutation- it will run you over the limit in a very few minutes.
