The Urban Survival Chick uses Peltor Tactical Sport Electronic Ear Protection!

When you are out on the range your primary concern should be staying safe, NOT making a pretty design on your target.  Part of your range safety ritual MUST be wearing protective gear like ear protection. 

Common sense would tell you that a gun shot would be pretty loud right? But, if you haven’t heard a gunshot before you don’t know how loud it is or understand the potential for hearing damage over time.  Even if you were to work around heavy machinery you’d have to wear hearing protection to preserve your hearing over the long run.

Electronic ear protection is the only type I recommend.  I use 3M Peltor Tactical Sport Hearing Protection.  You hearing protection should cancel the loud noises that could damage your hearing like the sound of the gun going off with each trigger pull, AND amplify sounds you need to hear like important range commands.

Peltor Ear Pro

Beginners who are unprepared for the range wear those cheap foamy ear plugs that muffle every sound.  Those might be ok if your are a college student trying to study at the library.  They are even ok if you are trying to catch some ZZZs on a plane.  The cheap ear pro is better than having nothing but it is not adequate for you or my students. Now you know better.

ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS protect your ears out on the range.

Look up Peltor Tactical Sport Hearing Protection and you will find several places to buy them online or visit your local gun shop.  This is a popular model that retails for around $150.oo but you could find them closer to $100.00.  They are comfortable, durable, and run on AA batteries.  You could spend more money and get a fancier model but if all you need is some good quality hearing protection for the range then these are the ones I highly recommend.

Let me know what you think about these Peltors.
