Re: Electronic Hearing Protection
Duke,you have brought up a subject that i take very seriously.I have bilateral defective hearing in both ears from my service in vietnam and i am extremely cautious when it comes to my hearing.I have tried them all and the higher the Db rating the better.The highest i have seen are the soft ear plugs you roll and insert until they expand to your ear.they arerated at 33DB.I personaly like electronic muffs and while i was shooting trap i used Pro Ears Predator Gold listed at 26 db.They are concave at the bottom of each ear piece so they don;t interfere with your stock.I use these the most,even when shooting my rifle,pistols and revolvers.If i want added protection i use them with the sofe plugs also.Have used Peltors in the past along with some cheaper versions and without a doubt the Pro Ears are the best.They even have a pair rated at 33Db.I realize everyone's budget is different but you should def.not let that interfere with your hearing protection.Save up the $$$ and buy yourself the best because when your hearing is lost,it will never come back.I wish you the best .
