I Understand your point. The only skepticism I have is the lack of first hand experience (on my behalf). I can afford the electronic ear pro but I've never been around nor ever used it. Call me a pessimist but I'm affraid of spending +$400 on ear pro (or any equipment) that I don't like.

This is the same as we use, along with form for high power. We just purchased some Surefire EP5s to try and they seem to work Real well for 22's that we shot today. We are going to shoot our AR's tomorrow and will let you guy's know more then.

OK, here is my answer about the Surefire EP5's, we used them yesterday with our AR 's they seem to work Very well. We were at our local range and others there along with a black powder, mini 14 and other AR. The wife said she needed her muffs after some of others started but the Surefire did work. So I think for now that is what I plan to use......
