LARRY W. SMITH
I shoot Open/Unlimited division for the fun of having more, and using more optics on all guns. As I got older so did my eyes and being able to see the timer and scoring tablet was so difficult without reading glasses that it left me unable to work as an RO at local matches when I couldn’t see the timer without my safety glasses. I ran across an ad for SSP Eyewear™ on Facebook and figured I’d give their bifocals a try and the minute I put them on I was amazed at the clear view and how easy it was to read with them. The very same weekend I got my pair, I worked as an RO at a major shotgun match and had no problems seeing the timer and reading the stage brief. Thank you SSP Eyewear™.3gundude.com
