    So when I first got my Revision Desert Locust goggles I wanted to see that they could withstand a 360 fps shot, it did, i shot in total of about 10 bbs? is it still safe to use? Should I change the lenses?

    As long as there is no visible damage like cracking or chips, then they should be fine to use. I took a 400fps full auto blast from 10-12 foot away in my Ess goggles last year and they are still holding up fine.

    Any cracks or deformation the lens? if there are, I would change out the lens. For reference, Revision goggles are MIL-PRF-32432 rated, meaning they are rated to take impact from a .22 caliber round at 600ft/s, not that you should ever try that out.

    That's pretty low speed for a .22 round... They usually go ~1500 fps if I remember correctly.

    From a gun yes, but at that speed they are trying to replicate a ricochet or fragmentation from a explosion. No goggle is going to survive a gun shot. Though technically it can withstand buck shot.

    There is a scratched, it doesn't dent in or even go inside. Its really small.

    Scratches are fine, you're good to go.
