    Most of the time I use the Howard-Leight powered muffs but keep foamies in the Jeep in case I forget them. I have also used noise-canceling earbuds in a pinch. Luckily, I never used those 3M ones that failed. I've lost some hearing since my initial hearing test for the Army but not enough to worry about. Never used anything for hunting until recently. I figured squirrel hunting with a shotgun would be a great time to use them. Shot most with them on but a few snapshots with them off. Hopefully, deer will give me more time to get ready.

    Depends what and where I am shooting.
    Electronic muffs are excellent for most conditions but custom molded in ear are nice as well for shotgun, and smaller calibers.

    3M peltor optine 30DB muffs. Wear them 8hr a day at work so I have a few pairs to use when shooting.

    my hearing protection devices are dependent on expected noise levels. flents foam plugs for most black powder muzzleloaders is more than enuf. the foam plugs or the quiet band for most BPCR guns. slim jim muffs for hi-power long distance range. the foam plugs and large muffs for the indoor police range where it can get Extremely Loud due to some folks love of magnumitis cannons, or cops with riot shotguns and full auto ar15's.
