    Ear Muffs - Good price...

    I just got 3 new pairs of Earmuffs for me and my kids, Peltor (3M) grade 5's.
    Only cost $32.99 each !
    They arrived after one working day!
    Cheaper than trade at your typical safety store...

    Got a few pairs of those around here somewhere. Bung em on the kids if they have to come to the range,either that or earplugs.

    Good muffs really but i just can't stand wearing muffs unless i absolutely have to over ear plugs. Eg jack hammering inside a concrete mixing bowl.

    For me i can't shoot with muffs on, recoil always disturbs my right side and Im deaf for days.
    Plugs fine.

    From my experience of ear muffs and I have had a few, I am VERY cautious as to the type I buy. The reason being, the common and frequent fail point is where the muff attaches to the head band.
    For some odd reason , manufacturers seem to favour the head band connection to the muff being a simple part or full ring which clips around a stud moulded into the muff casing. I find that these rings invariably fracture and I have not been able to obtain spare parts for an expensive purchase.

    If the ring does not fail, then the sleeve which supports it (piston sleeve like) onto the head band splits.

    The OP's example as pictured, is of that design.

    Those muffs are pretty good. Dad has heaps from when he was a quarry manager. Never seen them break on the 5 or 6 pairs we have here.

    I was going to get the non-folding ones, but decided on these for when they need to go in the pack, they take up less space...

    Blackwoods had them for ~$92+gst trade (or ~$65+gst trade through my work), so at $33 a shot i felt how wrong can you go.

    The cheap ones i have been using as well as my kids, are fine up to .223, but at the range when your neighbour opens up with a 76mm Howitzer some of you Hunting types like to use, they were totally inadequate...
    If we destroy them i will update here..

    ps. one of my shooting friends has moulded in plugs as well, and loves them. Maybe inadequate for a covered in range, but otherwise fine...

    When the little plastic studs break off they're easily fixed with a small screw and washer.

    I haven't had the studs break off.............it's the ring or the sliding piston attachment on the head band.
