I'm experimenting wth frog lube. Might just have to put it on a double dong bcg.
I've become interested in ear protection. Do you have a picture of and is it a costly device for that when wearing them you can pick up quiet sounds? Are they bulky and is it quick to put on? I would call myself quite green still when being that I bought my first shotgun)first of any weapon just about 18 months or so. Since that time I've bought 6 others. The reasoning behind this thread post was because my shotgun needed to be sent for repair, so the current HD is not available. Thanks for listening to my rant off topic in middle of post

Just wondering. I've hounded others about this very question, too, so it's not just you I'm picking on. I am really curious about what people do about hearing protection during HD. Most people do nothing and plan on doing nothing because the primary and only focus is, of course, on protecting the family home.
when your adrenaline gets going you wont notice the shots. what normally would leave you stumbling around with both hands over your ears in a non-life and death situation, you wont even notice it whiled stressed and under the effects of adrenaline rush.

basicly hearing protection isnt needed in a home defense situation.

So true. I've seen a few individuals shoot many thousands of rounds in ranges and mock situations. Only to watch them stumble for a mag when they don't feel recoil anymore during real engagement. In my home the only accessory next to rifle is a sidearm.

I have my range bag next to my safe, my Howard Leight Electric ear pro on top of my safe. Grabbing the AR first....ear pro if there's time.

I haven't shot my ar indoors, not anxious to either.....

Not a good idea if you are just training. Ive fired a shot or two from each of my defensives firearms at verious indoor ranges sans hearing protection so i know what its like.

Ive been under life and death stress and fired indoors before i dont remember it being anywhere near as painful as doing it inside under no stress. Everyone ive ever come across has thats done both have said the same thing. Life and death they dont remember the shot sounds.
