Anyone use a good hearing protection device?

I want something small if possible.

Electronic or not?

I have custom molded ear plugs I use for skeet shooting that I bring when hunting a boat blind. Very comfortable and you can still hear enough that you don't feel like you are in an isolation chamber. Quite a few audiologists make them. For extra $$$ some will insert an electronic supression device into the mold. Non-electronic ran around $70 when I had some made years ago.

For hunting or target shooting?

For hunting I use electronic so you can hear the people and game around me. For target The disposable foam work great, cheap and if you loose them, you do not cry. I like the electronic versions that when you buy them you only get a mold kit, You make a mold of your ears and send it to the manufacturer. they take the molds and make your custom fitted plugs that work great. I also have a set of electronic muffs but I can not shoot long guns with them, Only handguns. they get in the way of a good cheek weld to the stock.
