what do you recommend?
Why? Oh, I prefer not to damage my eardrums.
I recommend it because hearing is not repairable.
:Owned: I meant what do you recommend
ear plugs. 30 dB reduction
with ear muffs if you want more protection
I recommend as much as you can, hearing loss sucks
I wrote this up a few months ago, perhaps it will help
I have ear plugs not very comfortable I want muffs this time
plugs make me want to shoot myself after about 2 hours. my ears just get sore. I still use them because they are the best cheap thing out there, but man I wish there was a better alternative.
doubling up seems like a good idea
aint that the truth
wrong. Buy one pair of ear muffs for 15-20 bucks that last forever, or spend 5 bucks every couple of months or less?
I always use cheap disposable earplugs. I hate using ear muffs, they bother me.
Sordin Supreme Pro
depends what I am shooting, how long I am shooting, and where I am shooting
I usually wear my Peltor Tac 6...with the rifle I double up.
he's an e-baller
I never wear ear protection with things like .22s and i usually wear protection with my shotgun, but I always do when I use my M1 or other large caliber rifles
you can still cause damage.
They get rid of almost all noise. I stick them in extra deep, its just the whole making my head heavier and knowing that they are on me that I dont like about ear muffs.
I must have a fucked up shaped head or something because cheap muffs don't block shit from my ears.
Do you wear glasses?
P_T totally IMs me all the time hoping my e-ballin', e-shot callin' will rub off on him.
Seriously, Sordins are VERY VERY nice.
www.triadtactical.com has a great price. If you plan on training, you need to get these or Peltor Comtacs. I like Sordins because they attenuate (read : quiet) rather than clip out like the Comtacs. On a firing line, that will fuck you up.
I double bag with Sordins and some Howard Leight earplugs. The NRR of Sordins is 21 I believe, which is okay, I guess, but if you wear eyepro, the temples break the seal and it's conjectured that you lose 5NRR for this. Also, two hearing protections do not stack (this is not Everquest), and it's said the earplugs add ABOUT 5 NRR, so, you make up what you lose for looking HSLD in your M-Frames.
