How much magnification are you wanting? Variable or fixed?

Flatman,

I prefer the Peltor Tactical 6 Ear Muffs. They are electronic so you can hear normal range commands but shut down at the specific decibel level. And they also and have contoured Side Designed Ear Muffs for rifle shooting. I have two pairs and have used them for years on rifles including M-14, M-16, AR-15, bolt guns and all. You might want to take a look at them.
Another issue is that people think ear protection that goes in your ears are totally safe when they are not. The Bones on your head around your ears pick up vibration and sound just the same. The reason I can prove that is when on SWAT 16+ years we used bone mikes that were in contact with the bone on your head in front of your ears. We could actually whisper to each other and could hear through the bone just as well as through the ear canal. Just some insight when selecting protection. Also in the hot weather when we sweat the seals on the muffs and our head also have a tendency to break seal more easily at this time of year. You can also always double up with a set of plugs and muffs which I do at the academy since the overhead and walls are concrete and block!

Very good poiint. I usually wear my electronic muffs, with another set of low DB rated plugs. Even with the dampening from the muffs, my ears are still ringing after a day of shooting.

+3 for Peltor,, had mine for a few years and love em.. It nice to be able to hear range commands and shoot without muff going on and off constantly. And as Sniper said they are very low profile.

Sound like I'm going to be getting some peltors. Any particular model or recommended places to get them? Thanks to all who have replied, you've been a big help.
