Hearing that is.
I've just been using them foam plugs but am going to order electronic muffs from Midway here shortly.
I have some very old (early '70s) Sonic II ear plugs. Sometimes if I'm just shooting pistols I use some no name ear muffs that I have had just as long.
I am ,first of all a cheap skate, second, I am hard of hearing.
Soooooo, that being said....I use them little orange foam plugs , with a pair of Winchester (cheap but work) ear muffs.
When I switch from handguns to long guns, all I gotta do is remove the ear muffs., did I mention I was a little lazy.
I really refer to myself as being frugal and efficient.
btw, I once thought as Tater , until I got old.
Surefire EP3 Sonic Defenders...
I use these. Got them for a review once and never went back.
I have a pair of electronic Howard Leight Impact Sports. Does the trick and I really like the volume adjustment on them.
How do you like those? I've been tempted to try them out.
I've thought about moving to electric, but I can't justify the expense.
Are they really that much better?
I've been using some for hunting for quite a few years and like the way they amplify sounds so you can hear the game easier and then shut down and become plugs when you shoot to protect your hearing.
I have a couple of the old muffs with the metal over the head metal strap. They get hoton warm days, o.k. on cold days. Have some old Sonic IIs.....somewhere. Sometimes I use .38 specials stuck in my ear when I forget everything else. Or stuff a TROJAN in each ear.
Peltor muffs 27 db
My trusty old muffs have served me well for many years. Thought about upgrading what I've got as they get in the way when shooting my AR.
I use suppressors
Is that a North American .22 in your avatar?
Yes it is... the 22 Long Rifle only version.
I use a pair of mold-your-own ear plugs that I bought from MidwayUSA. I've found that I can hear conversation and range commands better with them than I can with ear muffs, they seem (IMHO) to block impulse noise better than my muffs do, they don't get in the way when I'm trying to shoot a rifle, and they're bright orange so the range officers can see I've got protection in. The best part is they only cost me $12. Been using them for about a year and a half now.

And yeah, that's them in the video.
