    Hi guys,

    I don't know if you guys have ever heard of it, but my friend Charles Summers, member of my firearm-based group on Facebook, invented something called EyePal, which is basically a static-cling that the shooter can fix to his or her glasses, and allows better focus on the sights and the target.

    I have no experience with this, as I don't need glasses, but I thought I'd share his product with you guys. If you're a shooter and have issues with your sights while looking through your glasses, I think this is for you.

    Here's the website: http://www.eyepalusa.com

    I won't really say that I'm advertising for him, even though I am. It's more of me helping out a friend making his product known. I have no ties to this product at all, and I'm not making any sort of financial gain by this. Just thought I could share something neat that he showed me, with you guys.

    I met and chatted with the gentleman, last year, at a gun show. He had a little demo and sold me. It does work, but its not cheap for a couple of stickers. I keep one on my shooting glasses and use it a lot. I also use reading glasses, but the Eyepal gets the target pretty sharp, while the readers don't. Thumbs up for Eyepal

    Using a pinhole increases the depth of focus.

    Make your own! I have and they work quite well. The disadvantage is the brightness goes down, so it's best used outside. Just like the aperture on a camera; smaller aperture=dimmer.

    Take a piece of electrical tape and stick it to a piece of plastic. Use a .45 ACP case or similar that's been "sharpened" with a case chamfering tool. Then punch out some discs of electrical tape. Use a small cupped pin punch to poke a hole in the center of the disc. I use one from a set of punches made for the round-end S&W revolver pins. They cut a nice clean hole. Then peel off the disk and stick it to your shooting glasses.

    Voila!

    Your friend has a nice website and a product he seems to stand behind.

    I thought his website was well put together. Quite the gentleman, not afraid to answer any questions. Had I the need for glasses, I would purchase his product.
