    Gonna check some reviews first. But I think these gel cups might do the job.

    I’m tempted occasionally to forego eyepro. But when you catch a piece of jacket in the cornea, the “odds” aren’t much of a comfort.
    Tried a couple of flanged silicone earplugs but I don't feel comfortable wearing them because I have weird angled ear canals.

    We’ve had a few threads on this.

    Here is the company we did the last p-f group buy with. Excellent place to do business.

    As far as things to wear under the HL, you might try one of the pre-molded inserts, such as the Shure line.

    Personally when I double up I use foam inserts. There are several different shapes available so perhaps if one doesn’t fit well know, another shape might?

    Thanks RJ, will check em out now.

    I really wanted to get something like this one in the video but based on their website they are pretty pricey. They are basically an all-rounder and can be used for a lot of activities. I still like em though but I don't want to rush.

    No matter what type of ear pro you get, get the best and wear it always. After 43 years of cop work and over 30 years as a Firearms Instructor, using Peltor and Walkers Ear Pro religiously I have suffered hearing loss. I'm getting hearing aids in a couple days due to repetitive noise. And like I said that's despite using Ear Pro always. Plug up and using muffs would not be overkill depending on the situation.

    On the bright side. Hey Doc can you write me a script for a suppressor to help protect the hearing I still have? Hey look honey I need a Can the Doc said so.....

    I really really like my @Noisefighters gel ear cups.
