I don't know the name brand, it's not even printed on the set or I'd post a link...not even sure what they're called...
I've stuffed cigarette butts in my ears before firing an AT4 once, and I was thankful for it.

I use plain foam plugs, the kind that expand to fit. I'd like a pair of muffs like vincent's but I'm cheap. One of the local shops hands out the foamies for free. I think you can get them at the health department in some cities too, just like the prophylactics. Protection is KEY!!

Daggone it Trip, just when I thought I was original, I used cig butts too when I was cutting trees and ran out of the yellow foamies...I've saved every one since, (the foamies, not the butts wiseguy!) just put 'em in your pocket and run 'em through the wash, good as new. The speaker phones weren't that expensive but more often than not I'll just don the old standbys. They'd work best if you really need to hear and wear them at the same time and they do take a little getting used to...

I picked up a couple of Ruger headsets off of Ebay for cheap. They work good for me.

It's my current BUG to my 4" GP100.

I carry two guns as a minimum and right now my primary is a 4" GP100. My second gun is the 3" GP100 with an IWB holster on the support side. I like that the same speedloaders work in both guns. If I have to go smaller I carry an SP101 and a J-Frame 38 Special. My reloads will all be 38 Special in that instance as the same speedloaders fit both guns.

When I pack my Glock I carry a 19/23 with a 26/27 as a second gun. The larger magazines fit the smaller gun. The only exceptions are when I'm packing the P-35 or the 1911. Then I opt for the J-Frame as my second gun as the only reliable small pistol I've found, that takes the larger pistols magazines, has been the Glock.

I usually switch handguns every quarter to stay current with any handgun I may need to be conversant with. This just happens to be a revolver quarter. I don't generally advocate that most folks switch guns, or necessarily do what I do. I have worked through some grip and releasing the safety issues so that it's not a problem for me. With that said I refuse to use a S&W or Beretta handgun due to the location and function of the thumb safety.

The 3" GP100 is a great revolver as far as I'm concerned and if I was limited to only two handguns it would be one of the two selected unless I opted for a 5" version of a .357 magnum. As for the other handgun, that's a tough choice and it would either be a Glock or a Colt 1911. That's a choice I hope I never have to make.
