Thanks, sounds like they did it right. I will check them out.

Find the better quality foam plugs very effective for rimfire rifle, sporting clays & mowing, etc.

For BPCR & high power competition I have a set of custom fitted silicone rubber 'plugs' that are similar to the foam plugs, but heavy/dense and sort of 'screw' into the ear canal that are both quite comfortable and very effective. If I shot in competitions that allowed muzzle-brakes I would add a pair of the electronic muffs on top.

I do what Dan does but with Pro Ears Gold.
Electronic muffs are great. They allow you to hear what's going on.

I also have a pair of these:


It's like a low quality custom hearing aid (audio could be better) with very good protection.

Randy, when on the range I triple plug, Foam first, then seal with wax earplugs and cover with Howard Leight non electronic - high NRR ( 32 ) muffs. In the field I use pro ears gold and in some circumstances will also add wax or foam. ( ie duck blind with shooters on each side. ) At concerts, sporting events etc the Etymotic Research system is great. I have two pairs of custom shooting glasses, one for range and one for field. They each have a thin headband strap that securely holds the glasses in place and allows the muffs to maintain a tight seal to the head.
