In researching this online, I find a number of firms that seem to offer very reasonable frames for a reasonable amont of money. But one really has to try on frames, and there are not any frame shops near here that I know of that serve the shooting community.
Could any members here recommend particular online retailers or particular manufacturers of frames?

These are all very helpful and appreciated. A newb question: do shooting glasses normally come as frames that you then use with multiple inserts, or are they normally fixed, if we're dealing with prescription frames? I am entertaining the idea of having these be multipurpose safety glasses, usable on the range or in rugged activities where my nice wire rims dare not go. Should I be getting dedicated shooting glasses, or can I get multipurpose active ones?
I personally use my eye pro for anything that I need it for, be it shooting or something else. I use Oakley glasses and I do not really have dedicated pairs for any one task. That said, I think it really comes down to money, if you have the funds and can afford multiple pairs of high quality eye pro, then go for it!
Put good in, get good out.

Just remembered be careful if you get a regular place like lens crafter to replace lenses, because of the wrap around in most shooting glasses it causes distortion if you get a pair and have them put lenses in. You are better off having Oakly or Wiley do it at the factory where they can correct for that issue.
Id also recommend against inserts in plano lens eye pro. They fog up quicker, get horrible smudges, and never stay clean. I would try to find interchangeable Rx lens/frame so you can adjust for lighting conditions. Example, dont try to make entry on a crack house with dark lenses! It may be ok for parimeter work on a sunny day but you need intermediate lens to clear that house. I dont like toting two different Rx eye pros when i could just tote an extra lens or two. For one, its extra weight/bulk. Second, its expensive. Just saying.

They offer good protection, and as far as comfort and fogging, they have worked fine for me in cold dry environments (CO) and hot wet environments (TX).

If anyone has other recommendations, do post them. I have Revision, CDI, Rudy Project, and the Lucky Gunner review to work my way through now, and will be pulilng the trigger, so to speak, on a pair here shortly. Thanks again to all the excellent suggestions.
