Remington Mossy Oak Amber Shooting Glasses

Great for tactical shooting and plinking!

According to the Shooting Glasses Guide website, polycarbonate lenses are the best types of lenses for protective shooting glasses. Polycarbonate is an impact resistant material that protects the eye upon impact. It blocks shrapnel without breaking, which is a huge safety feature for any type of shooter, whether you are a tactical shooter or a plinker.

Remington  Mossy Oak Amber Shooting Glasses offer amber tinted polycarbonate lenses, which not only look stylish, they enhance targets due to the highly effective amber tint. These glasses also come with durable, lightweight Mossy Oak camouflage frames, which are sure to complement any shooter’s attire. Please note that these glasses meet all ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 standards. This makes these Remington glasses one of the most stylish and safest glasses on the market today.

What is Plinking

One question we often get from newcomers to the sport of Airsoft is, “What’s plinking?” Well, there is an easy answer to this great question. Plinking is the term used for shooting at small paper targets. Plinking most likely originated during the great depression where children, armed with a cheap .22 rimfire rifle would shoot at tin cans set up along a fence. The term “plinking” comes from the sound of the bullet hitting the tin can.

Shortly after Airsoft rifles and pistols came to prominence, plinkers quickly transitioned to pellets and BB’s for their plinking needs. Today, you can find a wide array of paper targets designed for plinking. You can also find targets such as the Birchwood Casey Gallery Resetting Airgun Target or the  Gamo Squirrel Field Target with four Kill-Zone Reducers. These targets are reusable and add an element of difficulty not found with traditional paper targets.

There are numerous ways to score a round of plinking. If the goal is to simply “plink” a target, you get a set number of points for each hit. For example, if you are shooting at tin cans, you get 5 points for hitting the tin can or ten points of you knock the tin can off it’s perch. If you are shooting at a paper target, you get points in graduation depending on the proximity of the hit to the bulls eye. You can literally make up your own rules as you develop your own plinking game.
