I know you said you didn't want to wear ear muffs, but you may want to try the electronic ones. they let you hear rather well while still cutting off the bang when you shoot. the only bad thing is wind noise on a windy day. I used them for trap shooting for a long time.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ X 1000

Ive been wearing ProEars Electronic muffs since 2005. I wont hunt without them anymore. I wear them to protect my hearing. Best 200$ I have spent on hunting gear. (looks like they have gone up a little)

http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Ears-Preda...7616417&sr=8-8



My shooting (accuracy) improved tremendously when I switched to wearing the electronic muffs. I am more comfortable, and I dont flinch.

I even keep a set of cheap regular muffs in the truck just in case, and I have worn them on occasions when I accidently left my ProEars at home.

There are some other benefits as well; they keep your ears warm when its cold and they keep the bugs out when its hot. You get used to wearing them after a while and the windnoise isnt that bad. Ive gotten so used to wearing them that after a stand I sometimes forget that I still have them on. I have let other people I hunt with try them, and they mostly tend to go out and buy their own set soon after. You dont have to spend a ton of money, I know some guys with electronic muffs around 50$ and they are totally happy.

Before I started wearing the electronic muffs, it wasnt the first shot that hurt.... it was the 2nd and third shots that I would feel. I was hesitant to try the muffs at first, and I had tried some ear plugs before that, that were supposed to do a similar thing and I didnt like those at all. The electronic muffs are totally worth it though.

Now at the end of a target-rich day, my ears don't hurt and they dont ring either.
I look forward to being able to hear my grandkids without telling them to "speak-up" all the time, or having to pretend I heard what they said.

Good luck.

I just bought 2 pair of these just before Christmas on sale for $45 shipped at Midway. They were advertised when I was checking out for $18 each, but it was $45 with shipping for both pairs. I see they are a little higher now but definately worth the money in my book. You can read all the reviews too if you want.

I'm with the guy's who are saying electronic muffs...I use Peltor Tactical's and they are amazing. They cancel out the shots but actually allow you to hear 'normal sounds' better....they run a little over $100 but the cheaper $50 Peltors at Cabel*s work just as well....good luck bud

I don't use ear plugs when hunting with my RRA Predator pursuit 20", But if I am at the range I wear plugs or muffs.

Default hearing protection/amplification

Now, dont knock this till ya try it. But for the heck of it on my last stand I wore my noise (gunshot) canceling headphones. But they have the ability to amplify (many times) normal sounds. Can hear the e-caller sound level better and heard the fox that snuck up on me that I couldnt (not in season) shoot.
Try em! They bring your surroundings to a level you cant experience with human hearing. And no amount of muzzle blast will matter. For $50.00 at the local sporting goods store.

Read the fine print that goes along with the suppressors and the ATF permit.
