    I would like to "hear" about what everyone uses for hearing protection at the gun range...?! Post a picture and some details please.


    I use the Surefire EP-4 Sonic Defender Plus system...


    EP4 Sonic Defenders® Plus protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations. Their triple-flange stem design fits larger ear canals and provides a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24dB. Sounds, at safe levels, are allowed to pass through into the ear canal, while potentially harmful noises (above 85dB) are reduced to safe levels via a proprietary design that incorporates the patented Hocks Noise Braker® filter. EP4s include attached stopper plugs, which can be inserted for further protection and blocking out lower-level noise, like that heard on a plane, where hearing ambient sounds or conversations isn't critical. The right/left color-coded Sonic Defenders Plus are made from a soft but durable, hypoallergenic polymer and are ergonomically shaped, with an adjustable-stem design, providing a secure fit, all-day comfort, and extended product life (3 to 6+ months, depending on usage and care). And their low-profile design means they can be worn while wearing a helmet or mask, or while using a phone or headset. Available in clear or black.

    I use ear plugs when shooting a scoped rifle muffs for non scoped rifles and handguns. Plugs and muffs for shotguns and my Mosin.

    I just use the plain old foam plugs for my small weapons and then plugs & muffs for anything above a .40, AR's, AK, SKS and my hunting rifles and shotguns.
