    I wear foam plugs with muff over them. We didn't have good stuff in the Army years ago so I now have nice hearing aids from the VA

    The problems we face today are
    there because the people who work
    for a living are outnumbered by those
    who vote for a living.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    I use the Howard Light pros indoors, I don't add plugs because the range I go to has a separate room for rifles so it's only pistol caliber where I shoot, if I'm shooting my AR or am around others that are I double down with the plugs

    I typically double up on ear protection. I tried electronics and I felt they could not match the NR of the non electronics that I use; especially at indoor ranges. The 3M Optime with inner ear pro works great for me. They make indoor shooting extremely pleasant. I initially thought that doubling ear pro would give me the NRR benefit of both pairs ie. 23nrr+ 30nrr would give me 53 NRR, but from what I understand this is not the case. You only get the benefit of the highest NRR and +5 for the lower, so 23nrr+30nrr=35NRR. I may try electronics again in the future, but what I have now works really well. Aks are still loud they just don't hurt my ears.

    Itís muffs and plugs for me as well. Iíve also added extra large cell foam on the inside of the muffs. At an indoor range you canít predict whoís next to you. I have had Desert Eagles and 3-1/2Ē .44 shooters next to me. However the most annoying experience was at an outdoor range with a black powder pistol beside me. It was loud and smoky so I ultimately left.

    There are some things about NRR that I find contradictory info on. Then there are factors like fit of earplug or muff. Frequency of noise is also one.
