Amazon has Otis Ear Shield [amazon.com] hearing protection for lowest recorded price of $13.99 (according to CCC) for the 26dB NRR version. The 31dB NRR version (which appears to be much larger, so I decided against) is a decent deal at $17.95 ($2 from recorded low), but is currently backordered. I've not used them (I mostly use Peltor or Howard Leight electronic muffs), but supposedly these allow you to hear commands better than typical ear plugs (ala: "Hear Plugs" or SensGard ZEM <-which probably make these).

For those that missed the deal on Break-Free CLP [amazon.com] a while back, it's price dropped to within a few pennies the deal a month or so ago (I wasn't able to find the deal, but I remember missing out on it being just below $9). Not a smashing deal, but within a few cents of the best price in a year's time (best ever was $7.99 according to CCC).

Hrm... I was thinking of trying something lighter/less protection for when I'm shooting some louder suppressed rifle stuff that's only marginally past hearing safe, versus the -37db browning muffs I use for really loud things... gonna give these a shot...

Wow, those are some killer muffs if they actually deliver the promised protection. I think both my Peltor and my Howard Leight are 22dB NRR. I don't know that I really need crazy protection as I don't own any braked guns (and only shoot one on a very rare occasion and double-up for those times) and don't shoot a great deal of pistol either, nor shoot indoors with any regularity (which is probably the biggest hazard). That said, I think I heard someone say that "it's better to have too much than too little when it comes to hearing protection"...either that or "it's wetter than mulch when the middle winds comes shearing in Texas". Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

If I end up getting that HTI I've been drooling over I think I'll invest in something like those. It sure beats saying "what" every three words.

These are the -37 ones

https://www.kitterytradingpost.com/2/10/59/46340


They definitely work.

I bought em because at the time I was expecting to do a decent bit of indoor shooting, and had no suppressors (but did have pistols as big as 44 mag)


Now I shoot outdoors 99% of the time, and at least half my guns long and short are shot suppressed... (really the only ones that aren't are ones it makes little sense for like 44 mag, or ones it's not possible on like non-nagant revolvers)... but even with the best suppressor 5.56 is a bit too loud for nothing on your ears (and honestly even 300BLK out of anything but my bolt gun is right on the border)

Thank you for the link. I'll keep that in the "saved for later" for if/when I get the .50BMG/.375CT.

I didn't realize they made 'em with ratings so high. Rep'd and added to my shopping list.
