    What hearing protection do most of you shoot with? I have tried some muff's, some can be a distraction for me. The 50 cent ear plugs work but the DB protection seem not as good.
    I would like to find a comfortable set of muff's that i might not be as aware that they are on.

    i wear yellow foam plugs and over them i wear EAR brand muffs. They are about 15 dollars and work great. Put the right one just up on your ear and it will not hit the gun

    Use the Moldex bright green foam plugs and you wont need the muffs.

    Molded plugs, and if that isn't enough protection, some Peltor muffs. I just use the molded plugs, but some people find there isn't enough damping of sound with them when shooting, due to bone conduction of sound, so Peltor muffs are the best I found, working for years in noisy environments. The ones I use while running a chain saw are the high visibility ones you see being worn on the tarmac in airports, and are the best damping, and most comfortable I have ever worn.
