I've tried all sorts of contraptions including big money electronic muffs.

For shooting/hunting with ANY gun I wear either Walker Game ears or I bough a pair of stereo electronic muffs from midwayusa.com made by Howard Leigh for about $60 and they have become my favorites (really light, comfortable and they work VERY well and so far after a few years they are still going strong). They have two microphones so you can tell the direction of sound which is very important when hunting.

I wear them because with the amplified stereo sound I can hear a deer fart 100 yards away and know where the fart came from. When I'm training or shooting IDPA I can hear range commands, people's questions and timers much better.

This. I hunt with all kinds of guns, and never use hearing protection, unless plinking. Seriously when you are hunting there IS NO recoil, no sound, just reaction, instinct. Then when you're done with the shooting you have this amusing silence of the woods, its just crazy. Your thoughts sound almost loud. I even use a .45-70 and with no ear protection, I guess my dad and I just want to be in tune with nature if you know what I mean.

Too many rock concerts, Josey. You must have no more hearing to protect. I can barely use my weed whacker w/o protection. At the range I use foam earplugs INSIDE my over-ear protectors.

Stag Arms

that is the compensator that is on my AR..

my friend just bought a Del-ton with a different compensator on it and there is a huge difference. When he shot it the felt percussion was nothing, i told him to shoot my gun with me standing right next to him like i was before, and my damn shirt flew up from the ammount of air that came my way.

In NY you can't just unscrew it, but how do i get a different one that is still NY legal?
