I like the gun and its slowly getting reliable, but my regular muffs don't allow me to get low enough to align the sights and when I do the right muff is off my ear.

Any suggestions before I'm totally deaf.

Hi Evan, get some surefire ear plugs. EP 7 blocks/claims 28db. I have two set of electronic muffs that have a cut out or narrow space at the bottom of the ear cup. One is called the "Sporting Clay" model the other is military style MSA Sordin. Neither are cheap but they work good. The Surefire are the cheapest and do work good. Your experience on the Kel Tech is the same as mine. They have good ideas but execution can be a problem, regards, mike

If you are only dealing with practice range time... and not worrying about hearing a 'timer beep or range commands' in competitive events, then a good set of ear-filling silicon plugs would work.
I find very few electronic ear muffs provide a good 'seal' when cheeking a rifle or shotgun. The gun stock ear side always seems to ride up.

However, I do shoot a .22 rifle with a high comb in Steel Challenge and wear Peltor electronic muffs (need to hear the buzzer and the 'ting' on the plates'... and they do that). They seem to work with the gun I have... can't say about the one you have.

As for the Real World... muzzle blast & recoil are not really going to be noticed at the moment. As you note, they are range issues.

Thanks for both of you. Certainly I see it playing an "adult role" and the hearing will be dealt with later, but I don't want to develop a flinch in training and/or preparing.
