...y'all can go nerd out on electronic hearing protection. Because science!

I thought the electronic hearing protection were kind of silly until I'd been shooting IDPA a few months.

I thought I heard "range clear" and hustled off to paste the target the stage designer saw fit to place 20 yards away.

What I had in fact heard was the end of the sentence "unload and show clear".

I was on the opposite side of the bay from the shooter and made it five yards downrange before anyone noticed.

I was wearing electronic for my next match.

That's a good piece you found.

A small tip from an old man: Never, EVER, place electronic muffs over your hearing aides!

I have a pair of MSA's and they do work very well. I give them to students so they can hear what I'm trying to tell them.

I have used them with a bone mike and the whole ranger set up. Very cool!

Truth in advertising: The MSA sales guys give them to us because they know we all shoot and play with some people they are trying to sell to.

I had no idea they were so effective or advanced. Huh.

I've loaned sets out at gunskool for line buddies. Keeps me from having to echo commands.

I recognize the range in the photo. It's the Livermore Rod and Gun Club in Livermore CA. Cool.

Anon -- that's probably why there's a link to LPRG in the bulleted list a little further down. :)

LPRG is an excellent example of a shooting environment that is nominally outdoors, but the shooting stations are an indoors-type acoustic nightmare.
