    I shoot every week (indoor range) and have some basic $10/$20 ear muffs I use, but I am becoming very sensative to the noise. The range I go to could have rifles, shotguns, handguns all being shot on the same range all the time. I want a.nice pair of muffs. Can you all recommend some, maybe electronic and non. I will pay the extra $$ needed for a good pair. My hearing is worth it. Advise and thanks...

    I usually double up I that situation. Disposable plugs and cheap muffs. Have to admit, I still jumped when the guy next to me pulled the trigger on his 500s&w

    I double up with ear plugs also, but for muffs, I use the electronic muffs.

    I am going to be shooting a Barret next week, and after seeing these posts I think double up is a good idea. I have good electronic muffs, but I hear this beast is louder than a .22.

    I am doubling up with plugs and muffs. I think I may try a version of the howard leight electronic muffs. They seem to get good reviews on youtube. I also checked out proears, but I don't have $250-$300 to spend on muffs. My max would be around $150.

    I have a pair of peltor electronic muffs. Around 60 bucks. They're pretty awesome and they fit under an ACH.

    The tactical 6S. The only thing I don't like about em is the muff part that touches your skin is that smooth plastic that sucks when you sweat. I fixed mine with some moleskin.

    I have the Howard Leight Impact Pro Electronic Earmuffs and really like them for the price. The ear cups are quite a bit bigger than the Impact Sport, but they didn't seem to be in the way shooting my AR. They are a huge step up from the cheapo Caldwell electronic muffs I had.

    Also, +1 on the double up for any indoor range.

    I have 3M Peltor Ultimate 10 Hearing Protector I got from Amazon. NNR 30 db. A little bulky, but they are really comfortable, quiet, and I never have ringing in my ears, even after shooting next to a guy with a .50 cal Desert Eagle for a half hour. Can't beat $20, and you can always double up.
