Wiley X Black Ops glasses are not about looking cool or making a statement—although they do. This high performance collection of eyewear is made for people who get in, get the job done and get out — and let their actions speak for them in everything they do.

Like every Wiley X Black Ops model, the new Zak features stealthy matte black frames and military spec neutral grey lenses. These shatterproof, scratch-resistant Selenite polycarbonate lenses not only deliver superior visual clarity and 100% protection against UVA/UVB rays, they provide the company's trademark High Velocity Protection™ relied on by soldiers and heroes around the world.

Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer whose entire line meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact and optical performance standards. In layman's terms, this means that every Wiley X model is tested to withstand repeated impacts from a .25 caliber steel ball fired at 150fps, and the weight of a 1.1-pound pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50". This superior level of protection means that Wiley X Eyewear is up to any challenge, any environment or any situation the wearer is likely to encounter in the field.

Wiley X's Black Ops Zak features a lightweight, yet nearly indestructible frame that fits medium to extra large faces. Rubber nose and temple grips ensure a snug, secure fit through even the most vigorous activities.To learn more about the new Wiley X Black Ops Zak—or the company's full line of high-performance eyewear—visit Wiley X Eyewear.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
