When shooting air rifle bench at certain venues, we are forced to shared shooting space with the centrefire crowd. When this happens we have no choice but to wear ear protection.
I have tried many different brands and types from inner ear to over ear Peltor type. None of these are ideal for me as they are so efficient that it becomes inefficient! Shooting air rifle bench I like to hear the wind as well as the RO, with most ear protection all I hear is my own breathing.
Johan, the KGB, suggested I try the new Shooters Aid plugs, the work an absolute treat. It allows you to hear talking and other sounds almost normally, while blocking out impulse noises as caused by centrefire rifles.
While using these at the benchrest nationals, I found another great advantage to using these, it amplifies wind noise, warning you well in advance of changing wind conditions.
At R120 these are an absolute bargain, contact Airgun Warehouse.
