Protect your hearing during live-fire range training and practice. Rob Pincus shows a variety of hearing protection ear plugs and ear muffs. He explains what the NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) on these products means and what “doubling up” with both ear plugs and muffs results in. Rob also discusses why he believes ear plugs are superior for hearing protection.

    On the flight deck of an aircraft carrier and on the flight line, we had to wear earmuffs (Micky Mouse Ears) for protection. Must of us wore ear plugs as well as the Mickey Mouse Ears.
    On the range, I use ear plugs as well as earmuffs.
    I’m 78 and have excellent hearing due to the extra protection.
