I have had three different Walker Game Ear pieces, the muffs, the one that fits over your ear and the ones that actually fit in your ear.
I like to use the Muffs at the Gun range.
The new ones that fit in your ears are my fav for the stand.
The one that clips over the ear with the ear plug is okay but after a while the plug get pretty nasty and hard. ( I lost those in a cabin fire)
The Walker ones that fit in your ear come with batteries, three different size ear buds, and a carry pouch for about $60.00 from Cabelas.
I can't put anything over my ears, turn red as a beet and really sore to after awhile. I use the Allen sound sensors, can't really hear much but they work great when the gun goes off. I have a muzzlebrake on my gun so hearing protection is a must !!
I started at 6 yo hunting doves with a 20 ga. Would shoot about 200 rnds per dove. Ears would ring for a week. I could read, so looked into the cause and solution. Came up with foam plugs. Took a couple of years but I got dad wearing them too. Not bad for an 8 yo kid. ALWAYS use ear protection. Muff in the garage for mowing, hammering or saw. I figure Im not loosing my hearing working around the house to wear plugs in the field. Dont go to concerts either for the same reason. Now I used Magnum ears, custom made by my ear doc. Had them about 5 years with only battery changes. They are good enough for hunting and still allow me to hear the ducks! I do not use them at the rifle range especially if the shooting bench is covered by a roof. I use foam plugs and muffs for that. Muzzle break is part of the problem. You only have one set of ears. Treat them to some protection.
Justin, I hunted w/o protection until about 1998 after I got back to Houston and had my ears tested. I used the excuse I couldn't hear the wings and using a call is tough as well. I used to get back after hunts and have head aches form 6-10 clients shooting goose loads right next too me all morning. But I did miserably in the tests. Since then I wear them ALWAYS, even shooting .22's. One day I would like a pair of the in the ear custom molded ones, but at about $4-500 each I haven't done it yet but I will. If you can do it do it, it would be money well spent. I will look for the ones I have now, they work, can pick up some wind noise at certain angles in high wind. But they are $50 not $800,lol.
Forgot to mention, I also have the injection molded ear plugs and I use them with the muffs when shooting at the range. This protects the inner ear and the outer ear very well. Using the electric muffs, I can still hear.
In the summer, I'll carry a glass of ice water and dunk the ear plugs in it for 10-15 sec between stations when shooting clays. It sounds odd, but ice cold ear plugs really do feel great on a hot day.
