    Anyone on the forums ever tried this? the claim is that the lenses can withstand a 12-gauge shotgun blast from 15 yards (11 meters).

    I am very interested to see the outcome from this experiment.... me and member tried something like this with a claw hammer the other day and they did not break or shatter while being hit on a concrete floor with the claw end of the hammer. this was done with 2 lenses a Juliet and Gascan and they both held up to multiple strikes of the hammer
