I signed up for a 2 day intro class. All weapons and ammo are provided but I'll need other gear like hearing protection. They mentioned electronic hearing protection. What is recommended for a beginner. I need something that works but won't break the bank.

Foamy plugs. Cheap, great protection, and won't get in the way of mounting long guns.

Surefire ear pro works best for me. I have a pair of electronic ear pro that I use when I shoot USPSA pistol matches, but do not wear them for 3gun. I have accidentally knocked them off when mounting the rifle into my shoulder. Very quickly switched to Surefire, and have been using them for a couple of years now. You can still hear normal conversations, but they muffle out loud noises.

Surefire EP7

I think I'll get a cheaper pair of electronic and wear them with something like the surefire. Any downsides to this?

Like was said above - Impact Sport
You can hear normal conversations, AND, you won't be yelling at everybody when you talk

since its an intro class, just use the foam earplugs. (1.99 for 6 or something).

BUT, invest in a good pair of electronics and you will never look back. Get a low profile set (like the Howard Leight Sport, which I have and love) and stay out of the way with the shotgun/rifle work.

Foam plugs work well.

The HL impact are great for rifle/shotgun use especially for classes and in between stages. I just wear Surefire plugs when shooting so nothing interferes with my stock weld.
