    Currently, surefire ep7 and browning muffs. I'd love to get opscore amp but the arms of my glasses don't work together atm. I'm looking at making some low profile arms though. We'll see how that goes...

    Never heard of Tetra...

    The best hunting camouflage is to look like a logger or surveyor. Every other person sees me and leaves me alone, and the deer have no fear.

    Cutting firewood in fall but keeping a rifle handy is the most productive hunting I've ever done, and my truck comes home full either way.

    I use either disposable plugs or the caldwell electronic ones. I have a few pairs that really help when you've got novice shooters as said above.

    When I'm shooting anything .308 or above I use both.

    I've been wanting to try out the slightly fancier Walker ones.

    I double up...foam and electronic muffs. The electronic muffs reduce the noise while allowing you to hear regular conversation. The foam is added protection to further mitigate your ears from damaging noise.

    Same. I have the carbon-fibre patterned ones...excellent for having a conversation on at the range yet still provides protection if someone touches one off. They work very well.

    Usually just a pair of 30 year old muffs, but they have a rating of -28 dB.
    Sometimes just the silicone ones on a string.
    With the Mosin M44 or the 338 I like to wear both at the same time.

    A couple range trips ago, I tried a pair of Caldwell electronic muffs.
    The right ear worked fine, but I'm pretty sure the left ear was amplified.
    That sucks when you're shooting a 338 Win Mag with a brake right next to the earthen embankment.
    The real muffs came out right away.

    Most electronic muffs don't do that much reducing anyways.
    My hearing is pretty shot, I really want to preserve what I have left.

    Disposable foam plugs. Ear muffs hit the stock

    I used some howard Leight noise canceling muffs for a while, and I found that they seemed to not cut out fast enough and shots seemed really loud with them on. I switched to the (cheapish) peltor tactical 7s, and they seem to cut out crisply and reduce noise quite well. I use disposables with them frequently, especially indoors.
