what ear protection (any specefic manufacturer etc) do you prefer?
 

Ear protection

I have a peltor unit. The pivot on one side has broken and the ear pads have fallen off. I had to glue them back on. right now I do not think they are worth the price.

a cheap way to go is to use foam plugs and economy ear muffs on top of that. the problem is you cannot hear anything when you do this.

I will probably look at another brand of electronic ear muffs but would not buy peltor again.
 
What kinda ear what did you say?? Speak up I can't hear you!!! :)

Uh usually whatever happens to be in my range bag as I'm out the door. I used to like those silicone ear plugs that you just push in and then snug on to seal off the ear. But I got tired of cleaning them and if you ears get sore well then you can't shoot. I like muffs. The sound cancelling muffs are good, at least until harley pulls out the full auto 50. The electronics struggle a bit at shutting off the first 4 or 5 shots leaving the barrel. Definately a good thing to have ear protection though. There is always one person on range who does not respond when I shout ceasefire. I go over to find out they've shot the sound out of their ears so to speak.
 
I have a few pairs of Peltor Tactical 6S behind the head ear muffs that I use while on the range, and when doing one on one (or two on one) shooting instruction.

Thank God I'm alive!
I don't know the manufacturer, but I use the earplugs that I purchase from the sporting goods store.

As a side note, I have discovered that these earplugs make good bait when fishing for salmon. Has anyone else tried this?

mostly ear plugs, and sometimes muffs.

I typicaly use the roll-up expanable ear plus, or the push-in rubber style(prefer theses)
