There are some ear plugs out there that the trap shooters use that are electronic and will enhance your hearing but when a shot goes off they block out the sound. Has anyone tried a pair of these yet. There are a couple of them that go in your ear and then they pour a mold in your ear around them so that they block everything except that sound that comes through the electronics. Kind of spendy but pay once, cry once might be the right statement. My ears have rang for 25 years from shooting handgun competition/practice and due to this I haven't shot a rifle with a break on it as of yet but I have sure thought about it on my .300 RUM. Kind of hard to stay on target with it.
