Hearing Protection?
 
What hearing protection are you using?
Muffs or plugs?

Indoors, both. BPI moldable earplugs and Howard Leight L1 earmuffs.

Outdoors, one or the other, sometimes both.

I've been using these for the last few years. They are very comfortable and do a good job blocking noise. The price isn't too bad either for home made custom plugs.

Muffs screw-up the cheekweld on some of my long guns and are too darn hot in the summer time. :eek:

Dang it, you beat me to it.


Muffs 99% of the time. Once in a great while when .22 rifle plinking, without other centerfires nearby, plugs.

I use muffs but I'm not completely happy with them. They are rated 32 NRR but I still think I'm hearing too much noise. I am going to look into custom made earplugs of some sort.

Me too!


I use plugs, but i don't shoot indoors or with large numbers of people.

According to the OSHA training course that we go through at work the foam type earplugs are better at blocking noise than earmuffs. I have worn both on the job and agree. To me the foam plugs are a whole lot more comfortable, especially if worn for a long period of time. The ones I like and use are moldex pura-fit 6800.

I prefer "Sparkplug" Moldex 6604. Very comfortable & excellent noise reduction.
