Default Please *clarify* rule 3.6.2 for me


I find the figure sketched in the upper right corner of the diagram accompanying the new Rule 3.6.2 to be ambiguous. It could reasonably be interpreted to disqualify the use of *all* Knobloch- or Champion-style dedicated shooting glasses. Alternatively, it could have been intended to disqualify only the use of these glasses with the small diameter rifle-style lenses and/or with the narrow 30-mm (1.18-inch) width opaque occluder depicted in the figure.

While adherence to the ANSI Z87.1 safety glass standard is listed as “strongly recommended,” the new rule only requires that “Eye protection must have two complete lenses with minimum dimensions in depth and width for each lens of 1.30 in.”

Please clarify if wearing Knobloch- or Champion-style shooting glasses with *two polymer lenses,* each exceeding the required 1.30-inch minimum "depth and width" dimension [such as the 37-mm (1.46-inch) or 42-mm (1.65-inch) diameter pistol-style lenses] would be acceptable.

As an almost-Senior shooter requiring a -7.00D correction, which cannot be accommodated by most available telescopic sights, a decision to exclude all Knobloch or Champion style shooting glasses could sadly spell the end of my participation in CMP rifle events.
