    If you wear hearing aids how do you deal with them when trapshooting?

    Take them out?

    Just turn them off?

    Turn them off and cover with ear muffs?

    Any suggestions. I'm getting fitted for some.

    Thanks

    Mine have a little button that cuts out most of the lower frequency for talking in noisy places. I push the button, put on the electric muffs and I can hear anything that is said to me, but it muffles the sound of the shot.

    Like Redhawk, mine has cut-off switches too so I can use them hunting quail or grouse without the gunfire hurting my eardrums. I've also used them with Peltor 7s for trap and can hear the scores called real well.

    Web, I bought my Peltor Tactical Pro muffs several years back and I do like them a lot. They allow me to adjust the volume from low to high for better hearing. I also used them for deer hunting in the east in cold weather and they helped keep out the cold while allowing me to hear the deer walking.

    Some shooters are bothered wearing any kind of ear muffs because they hit the stocks comb when moving after a angling target. Here's the good part of that, if the muff is rattling on the comb, your rear sight is moving!!
