Shooting glasses is not like your pistol. With pistols you want to start out with cheaper ones, and then upgrade to an expensive one when your technique matures. A more expensive pistol ( .22 or air pistol alike ) usually have advanced features that only experienced shooter will appreciate, just like fine wine from the vintage.
With shooting glasses, you should start out with the best you can afford. The reason is that once you have gone through the many steps to set up your glasses properly, you really do not want to do it all over again just because now you want to upgrade to a better set. One set of glasses is good for many years. Mine is twelve years old and is still excellent ( but that of course requires that you use it properly and takes good care of maintaining it in tip top condition ).
That said, our best glasses is the Olympic Champion. With the micrometer adjustments and titanium frame, there are no equals on the market. It is easy to set up, and it lasts for a long time.
The Olympic Offset Champion is designed for archers or rifle shooters in standing positions who use an extreme aiming position, and the lens must be place right in the middle of the frame.
The cheaper version of that is the World Champion 2. This has an aluminium frame instead of titanium, and adjustment is by set screws and sliding blocks.
