Let's remember that a lot of the population thinks just owning, let alone daily carry of a firearm is absurd...
Good electronic hearing protection actually amplifies hearing and can be quite useful when investigating bumps in the night.
Attilla: Pistol goes in right hand, MAR-CIRAS w/open right side is grabbed with left hand and donned overhead without upsetting pistol in right hand. Left hand then grabs hearing protection from pouch on vest and jams on head, punching the on button on the left side of the Sordins. Total time from wake-up to having pistol in hand w/armor and hearing protection is about 10-12 sec.
I love this...i would even have a set of eye pro handy if I had time.
