Is there a way that i can carry my hearing protection (earplugs) in the gun? Just so everytime I pick it up, I have some hearing protection readily available? Looks like there's some room in the pistol handle/grip.

I keep a spare set of plugs in my MIAD grip, but I don't know about a factory set-up?

Buy a sound supressor or use pockets

Do you smoke?

Just get a grip plug and keep them in the grip.

Stuffing filters in one's ears, you mean?

Yes, by all means it's important to have some ear protection while shooting so hearing isn't lost. That way the smoker will be able to hear the doctor when he points to the chest x-ray images and says, "Do you see these dense areas here in both lungs..."

Like this one from Bushmaster

Beware!

These are notorious for getting lost.

If they so much as come within 3 feet of solvents (cleaning fluids) they will not stay put..

The MIAD is a good option (from Magpul Industries)

An alternative to the Bushmaster grip plug shown above would be this A2 storage grip from Bushmaster.




M16A2 Stowaway Grip



Or you could simply get a ear plug storage case and secure it to your sling.



Case( NSN 6515-01-100-1674), plastic, nonreflective. and 2 pair earplugs ( NSN 6515-00-442-4818). New old stock.

Duct tape?

Electrical tape. In the grip.

C'mon now.

I keep some plugs in my Tango Down VG.

I like the Bushmaster one. Would it fit my Colt LE6920?

On all my ARs I fold up a pair of earplugs in a baggie and stuff them in the Hogue grip. Readily available and they stay put.

I bought one to put in my hogue grip I figured for $4.00 I would give it a shot to see if it would fit. First shot and it was about 10 feet downrange. Now I just keep it in for looks and usually forget to take it out at the range and have to pick it up after it flies out
