The title of this post is a little misleading. Rick’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump includes a pair of Costa Del Mar Blackfin Polarized Sunglasses. Amazon sells them for $102.96 – $258.95. So they ain’t cheap. But even that is relatively inexpensive compared to . . .
a pair of high-end prescription sunglasses.
Especially if you have them made from thinner material, coated for scratch resistance, and photochromic reaction. And maybe bi-or trifocal vision. Five bills for all that isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.
But a good pair of sunglasses is key to armed self-defense. You’ve got to see it — an imminent credible threat of grievous bodily harm or death — coming!
Or am I overstating the case? Are you as safe with a pair of cheap sunglasses as you are with the good stuff? What sunglasses do you, the everyday carrier, wear?
